With regard to Nature Boy--

He settled out of court, but did Dvořák actually pen the melody?

OK tiime travellers - fasten your seat belts - as we are going back further this time for an old song that dates back to 1884. This recording was made in 1923 - so quite primitive - but I love the old world quality of this version. I always associate this song with warm summer evenings 8)

Another very well known old song that dates back to 1924. In modern settings the first verse is left out - but here it is true to the 1920s original in a version that was recorded in 1944.

This song came into my head in relation to the two part harmony thread. So here it is - as recorded in 1960 8)

 One of the first songs i learned on Chromatic, been done by the world and it's Aunt, here is a version with terrible harmony, rotten interpretation, the best part comes with the harmonica.

Yes Jimmy - Good two part harmony ain't easy - that's why the Everly Bros recording will always stand the test of time.

1929 & Rudi Valley hit 'Vagabond Lover:-

http://youtu.be/eb36JID2jRA

It is a tune I recall being sung at parties when I was young. I learnt to play it back then (in the 40's) no tabs, by ear and only recently discovered that I played it in 12th pos. Sorry its on one of the smaller harps. I did tab it out & posted it to Harp Tabs.com. Here is my version:-

Never heard that one before - though I have heard a little of Rudi Valley - this is the sound of the 1920s.

Here is an original recording from 1933 - as it featured in a comedy show in the 1970s. Khazoo players may like to join in the chorus...

 This song pops into my head from no where, time and again, and has done for over forty years , i don't know why it has been forgotten or overlooked.

A song from 1944 - the Ella Fitzgerald version is probably best known - but here is an entirely different interpretation from a 1985 recording.

 This was recorded after Chet had his ' accident' and lost his teeth, also just a few years before he was found dead in the street. In his prime a legend and icon of the fifties, who produced some of the sweetest cool jazz imaginable. Pity about the post, pity about the coarse comment.

Sorry Jimmy but nothing on the recording said anything about his personal misfortune and since I'm just the "proverbial blind man listening to the radio" my opinion stands.  8)

Audiences (with the possible exception of live audiences who have been provided the details you mentioned from the get-go) do not grade musical performances on a curve. If the guy calls himself a "professional" I call upon my right to like or dislike his performance based on my personal taste irrespective of any of his personal misfortune. If I were a professional who lost my teeth and whatever, I for one, would not perform in a "professional capacity" and expect folks to pretend to enjoy it just to be nice. That's "artistic welfare." The "listening" public is the most fickle bunch of folks on the planet, and that's actually a good thing; otherwise we'd not only be on a steady diet of musical has-beens, or rank amateurs, but we'd all be expected to pretend to enjoy it.  Nah! ;D

I heard the BeeGees the other night on PBS and I was embarrassed for them. Yeah, they used to be great, but since the voices and timing were gone, so was I.  I'd rather listen to a recording they did when they sounded good, than sit and listen while saying to myself "Cut'em some slack, Age - they're old and they're trying so hard!"  Nah! Just like letting Grampa continue to drive after he's too senile to remember where he lives, just cuz we don't wanna seem mean; sometimes we just gotta say it like it is, or suffer the consequences. Again, like it if you like, but my opinion stands  :) :) :)

Yes AJ - it is an honest response and your opinion. My opinion is that a machine will always be able to produce musical sound which is superior in terms of technical accuracy to that which even the best singer or musician can achieve. But the machine will never produce artistic expression which is individual and communicates something that is unique to the listener. There are many great interpretations of 'Every time we say goodbye' - but  Chet Baker brought something different that made me think of this old song in a different way. And that's the art of it 8)

 A. J. , you said  ' Wow that was incredibly boring ' , ( i'll omit the flushing bit ), that sounds like a statement to me. On what authority ?
           Nevermind, i am posting a live performance by Chet, his last concert i think before he died, in my opinion a work of art , by a supposedly burned out guy, please take the time to listen, i am convinced you will learn something, if not a contribution is on it's way  :) ;).
