Greta Van Fleet are quite enjoyable, but to my ears their singer sounds a bit more like Geddy Lee on Rush's debut pre-Neil Peart album than he does Robert Plant.

Mind you, when songs from that album were first heard on the radio, the stations concerned received phone calls enquiring if they were playing new Led Zeppelin material, so there you go...

Summertime Blues from the Oo's Live at Leeds, to mark 59 years since the taxi carrying Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent crashed on the A4 in Chippenham.

Avicii - SOS.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8tdT5pAE34

I saw him five years ago, have no idea what he was doing up there but it was bloody amazing.
For some reason his death really got to me, so young, so talented, the song chokes me up, beautiful vocal from Aloe Blacc...  

@Aah THE band ! Saw them twice with the lads, IOW with Dylan and at the RAH.....I think Sandy came to the IOW.

I have fallen hard for Saharan blues recently. I took a punt on the album Kidal by the Tuareg band Tamikrest about 18 months ago and it has just grown and grown on me in the interim. It has now been joined in my collection by their vinyl only live album Taksera and I am keen to delve deeper. I am not even sure what I mean by this but the music feels authentic in a way that very little modern guitar based "rock" does

And that is why it is resonating so well. The music feels so genuine and authentic. The rawness comes from the soul, the sound comes from the heart and miles of Sahara desert. Hearing Ibrahim from Tinariwen's life story it isn't hard to understand why the music comes across that way-seeing his father dragged from their house and killed, living in camps in Algeria when Mali was at war with the Tuaregs, not to mention life in the Sahara. I wrote about Tinariwen on the blog once in terms of the water shortage. Yet, and oh yet, when the bands perform live they love sharing their culture and music and they do so with a smile on their face. Authentic indeed!

Brilliant CD. Stunning live if you get the chance to catch them.
