There's a fair chance it might as someone has to follow behind you deleting the videos and turning them into links

Please explain why embedded videos are a problem for this forum and I will stop posting them.

Why is it possible to embed Youtube videos at all, if they are such a problem? Scrap the "YT" option already.

Exactly!
Sort it out PF!
This is not an interesting or enjoyable experience.

It's down to a copyright infringement with music. It's an infringement to use an artists material without permission or paying royalties to them. You tube have an agreement with the copyright owners but PF don't. In this day and age you have to be careful what you use on your sites etc, or you could find a lawsuit against you. Did you know that it's technically also a copyright infringement if you sing "Happy Birthday" to someone? That's how mad it is today! I assume it's OK to post a link to the YT site, which is why we have to change all your music videos to a link leaving off the " " as an extra safety precaution .

@The Other

The YT option is there, because there might be an off chance that you post something about Poland, that's not music :)

@Vincent
Thanks very much for your clear explanation.
I will now save you much work and no longer embed music videos or any other videos that may infringe copyrights to this forum.
But I have to say that it is a shame, because embedded videos make this and any other site more attractive and I don't think that I personally will bother posting links.

But hey, it is what it is.

OK, fair enough. Although you run the risk with any embedded content then, especially with photos.

LOL! Let us know when that happens.. :)

Okay, let's give it another shot. Here's some feel-good music...

Oingo Boingo - Who Do You Want To Be?

Never heard of Billy Thorpe but giving it a whirl on my horrible 5am workout and it's worth a listen !

Thorpe's "Live at Sunbury" was in Australia.

I checked it out last night and its not bad at all:)

Never heard of Billy Thorpe

You never heard of Children of the Sun? Its a classic rock song from the 70s

I just watched a few of his videos and he is pretty good.
Not Peter Frampton, maybe more Steve Miller, but not quite that either.
I have never heard of him before.

A bit like Grand Funk Railroad in some aspects of boogie. Number 1 in AUS in the early 70s as TheOther says. I learnt about them in Bon Scotts' bio.

Here's another Aussie band for you guys...

Has anybody else seen this before? Tom Jones and Janis Joplin singing together, it's the business!! Great brass section too.

Yeah, I've seen that one before. Awesome, isn't it? Tom Jones did a song with Joe Cocker, too, and a whole bunch of other artists like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young for example.

Yeah, but a long time ago and I had forgotten about it.
They absolutely clicked and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
As you say, the band were superb too and I am a sucker for a bit of Hammond organ....
Thanks for posting.

@TheOther

I enjoyed your posts too.
Tom Jones has an amazing voice so pairing him up with others will always be interesting.
Jones has natural rythmn but Cocker never seemed to know what to do with his body or especially his hands when singing.
But two great voices.
With CSNY, I think Tom put them under a bit of pressure really, because he is such a soulful singer and CSNY were not really about Soul Music.

But it worked for me.
Neil Young probably doesn't even remember that gig as he was so out of it......

Tom Jones & CSN & Y

The Janis Joplin duet was superb. Tom doesn't gel with CSNY though - they are in a different league and he can't keep up; he is a showman, not a rock singer. His TV shows were still excellent though.

Talking in the present tense because this is still it. Musicians who make these modern festival bands look quite pathetic, a long long line of them.

CSNY, I think Tom put them under a bit of pressure really

With the greatest of respect for your musical tastes Milo, you have this the wrong way round.

As for Joe Cocker, I still have 4 or 5 LPs from the 70s. And a big zero records of Tom Jones. Both have their place, but in a blind sing off for interpretation and feeling, aka music, Cocker would **** all over Jones IMHO. For entertainment and bravado - the absolute reverse.

The same applies with Janis Joplin. Ever been moved to tears by a Tom Jones performance? I have by Janis, the first time I saw Ball and Chain at Monterey. That is a great artist.

All subjective::):)
And the man himself - Wilson Pickett. Here he simply overpowers Tom, and shows what a real soul singer does, or maybe Jones decided to give it up.

Joe Cocker has the worst voice, its like fingernails scratching across a chalkboard to me. What music has he wrote? Its all bad cover tunes, such as, ruining all those Beatles songs!

The same applies with Janis Joplin

My mom was at her final concert. Its too bad she had an amazing voice! My favorite is her rendition of George Gershwin's " Summertime". I used to play that song on my guitar all the time, love that first solo!

Tom Jones performance?

Neither Rod Stewart nor Janis Joplin were known for their aesthetically pleasing voices.

Neil Young

The guy had surprisingly bad teeth in that video, and so did his fellow band mates.

Musicians who make these modern festival bands look quite pathetic

I agree. I sometimes watch some of these open air concerts on MTV, and I usually switch channels after a few minutes. Unbearable crap most of the time.

George Gershwin's " Summertime"

This version is one of my favorites...

Brainbox - Summertime

Jan Akkerman ... great guitarist.

This is awesome! They sound a little bit like Deep Purple....

If Gershwin only new Porgy and Bess would be rocked out in the future....

You know of some good bands that Ive never heard before, kudos!

I still like the original even though its older than my parents. lol I guess you have to in the mood for this 1935 big hit:)

youtu.be/h3kQt14_5OQ

Here one of my favorite guitarist from the days of my youth.

Michael Schenker from the British Rock band U.F.O. his brother Rudolph plays with The Scorpions. I first seen them live around 1978-80 and have some great concert memories:)

The Godzilla of Guitar lays waste to another city.

Joe Cocker has the worst voice

It's all about believability in the rendition, and soul, in the Dougpol songbook. Joe had it - Tom doesn't, to the same degree. And I'm talking about rock era Joe Cocker, 68-72, with Leon Russell. I've been to 5 Cocker concerts over the years (wifey liked the cover songs era) and he always did a rocking 40 minute "rock mini-concert" - which is something that Tom Jones couldn't cover. IMO.

As to Neil Young and bad teeth - that's acid, man.:)

This version is one of my favorites...

Great - never heard that. Don't forget Bobby Womack!

Michael Schenker from the British Rock band U.F.O.

He was an early member of the Scorpions, too. Great guitarist, although he couldn't handle the fame and success he had with UFO. To be honest, I liked Vinnie Moore better anyways. He was a much better fit for the original lineup, which I really prefer. In later years, the band was too commercial for my personal taste.

UFO Live is a truly great album, by the way. Give it a try if you don't know it, and play it loud... :)

Are you talking about the live album "strangers in the night" recorded at the Chicago Amphitheater?

I was there! Judas Priest was the warm up band, Hell bent for Leather just came out.

That shoulda been me on the album cover..lol

Great guitarist, although he couldn't handle the fame and success

I seen him one time and he was so wasted and could barely play his guitar, very sad indeed. I think he has sober up now and is touring again.

He was an early member of the Scorpions

Never seen the Scops or Vinnie Moore:(

@Dougpol1
We all have different tastes, basically we like the same types of music. Bob Dylan and The Grateful Dead are two other bands I could never listen too, but I do like some of Garcia`s playing.

UFO Live is a truly great album

I have them mixed up. I need to have my eyes checked and go buy some glasses. I wasn't old enough to go any concerts back in 1972... lol

Im listening to it right now and it jams! Hes playing bluesy:):)

The Grateful Dead

Me neither. Herb helps 'suppose....Wot about Jefferson Airplane? I have commissioned a builder to soundproof a wall so I can blast their music at required volume. Someone told me they stopped listening to such music many moons ago when they got married - I could only shake my head in wonder as to why.

I like Jefferson Airplane, but not a lot Starship. Funny that you mention it, I found this a few weeks ago. Do you know this guitarist???

Its the best version of White Rabbit Ive heard:)

I saw UFO live a couple of times and MSG once, they always delivered.
The band's I saw most, because they toured a lot and often played smaller venues, were Thin Lizzy and Budgie.
Two truly great bands.
Most of you have heard of the Irish band Thin Lizzy, but if you have never heard of the Welsh band Budgie, check them out.....

On the subject of Welsh bands, check out Man and Deke Leonard's Iceberg.... I saw them live too.
And on Irish bands, I was taken by an Irish friend to The Marquee in Soho to see Spud...... One of the best nights of my life..... Or should that be loif?
