Whatjd Dinah Washington OK but how dare you 2nd down Sarah to Billie Holliday:*) Billie may have had a magic with some but she was a one octave singer to me. Sarah is the Divine One.
Poco to Buffalo Springfield and CSNY. Expanded further Steven Stills to Neil Young. And Vegasears sure picked one of my favorite bands, Little Feat that shoulda, coulda, woulda but, I just can't figure why they never dida.
Mark Eitzel--voted songwriter of the year by Rolling Stone in 1991,used to front a band called American Music Club,now solo with an electronica based album out called the Invisible Man.
He's never sold many records but has written some of the most beautiful songs ever.
Basically too near the bone for wide-ranging appeal and too depressive for some but to me he's....well a flawed genius I guess.....check out the record Everclear by American Music Club and tell me I'm wrong.....
REO Speedwagon, Though they did hit big with "High Infidelity" they had many previous albums as good and better. "REO TWO" possibly their best though poorly recorded. "You can Tuna Piano..." and "Nine Lives" are also very good. Most people think of REO as a power ballad group. However their early stuff is some of Rock n Roll,s finest which never got the attention it should have IMO.
Pre Joe Walsh Eagles. I'm not trying to bash Joe, but their earlier stuff with Bernie Leadon was as good and maybe better. Joe did a good job in replacing Bernie but he did not make the Eagles as is portrayed by many.
Don't know if this was on topic but it gave me a chance to vent. Thanks
