Yesterday while out and about in the car on this England bank holiday, a song from this band came on the radio. They were a big name from the late 80’s and I must admit one of my favourites from the era. Hope you enjoy my little blast from the nearby past. Hope I have introduced a new sound to your ears.

I am always worried about being little boring with my music choice, so I have chosen a few of their most popular hits of the time. Eddi Reader was to become one of UK’s top female singers. After listening to them I hope you agree.
I would love to post more videos but I would not want to bore you. If, however you wish to hear more then on viewing these on Youtube then you will find many many more to which I am sure you would enjoy very much. Happy Listening.

 header-brocks-120.jpg This week I have on offer some really nice tunes, slightly leaning towards the country style. They are however very pleasing to the ear. There are many other titles of the same and varying music styles if you would like to check them out, but please enjoy my offerings. Thank you.

The video above is my favourite, just love this style, the sound, the beat almost everything about it. I first heard it made me want to listen to more of Tim McGraw.

 What is it with this sound, I cannot get enough. It seems strange to me, a Brit loving this American style of country music. Hope ye’ all enjoy it as much as me.

Another song that makes me see and think of nothing but sunshine. Being a guitar player I would so love to play this type of music, but it just does not suit a Brit. When I was gigging back in the 70’s-80’s I played in band that played country music, but it was what we musician types would call 3 chord wonders. Put you to sleep music, definitely if one played it.

Something Different for you. 

[I was going to post a tune by me, but did not want to upset my followers.  hehee!]

Today I found these in my drafts, and have been there for a long while and here is something very different from the normal run of the mill music. I know we all have little time to spare on blogs but these video’s are well worth the time.

I am sure if you listen to the music here and judge them for what they are you will be knocked off your feet. Whats more there are many more to listen to with their links at the end of each video. So please enjoy, I am sure you will.

This second one is pretty special, the video is brilliant.

Slightly longer video below but well worth the time to listen.
