A couple of Classics from a true Legend of the genre.

I did say my posts here were gonna be predominantly old school.

Well, maybe not all my posts here will be old school.

I do love me a bit of "Dark Country".

Another one I've posted before,  but it deserves to be in this thread. 

As i've stated previously, this is an a cappella group and every sound you hear is done vocally. Mind blowing talent!

This is another great example of "Dark Country".

Johnny Horton - Comanche  (The Brave Horse).

This one is really old school.

"Comanche", BTW, was the name of General Custer's horse.

I love the way the "beat" slows then stops at the end to signify his death.

I loved this track when I was little.

This is genre that I love, but I'm not as up to date as I should be with the recent stuff, so I'm gonna stick with the old school shit I grew up with.

This is a Country song for sure, but Gene Pitney was more of a Pop artist at the time. Had some Legendary tracks.

BTW, if you haven't seen the movie, then do so immediately!

Not really a fan of old school country but i love new country artists which for me is basically melodic rock/aor with a country twang.

What do you think of this one from 1983?

 An old school classic, but not as old as my previous posts.

Ronnie Milsap was a legendary artist at the time. A blind Country music Pianist/Vocalist. 

I've always loved this track.

Yeah, I've always felt that Country music from all eras has never been that far removed from the music that we all love in some form.

I'm finding myself in not only a Country mood, but also a Western mood.

When it comes to old school/new school transition, Mid 80s Dwight Yoakam was as good as it gets.

    • Love Frontline...great band 
    • Yeah man, you'd assume that was written and recorded by Blue Tears somewhere between 1990-1992, recorded by Sweet in 1994 with a tweak here and there for a songwriting credit. But defo an original BT song. 
    • Was listening to Blue Tears today and Forever Yours played. Pretty sure that Michaels Sweet recorded it first, but they both have writing credits. That said I'm pretty sure it was on a Blue Tears album that was a collection of historic tracks, so maybe they recorded it first and then MS did it later. Bother great versions.
    • I actually listened to my Best of B&T today. No More Broken Dreams is one of the better songs of all time
    • That last track posted reminds me a lot of Danger Danger
    • New album out now on Noble Demon Records, available on Spotify. Seems to be much more stylistically varied than the last album... and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I'm going to need some repeat listens with this one.    
    • Press release: Pride & Joy Music is happy to announce the signing of French AOR band HEART LINE! Heart Line is a new AOR/Melodic Rock band led by French guitarist and producer Yvan Guillevic (YGAS, PYG, United Guitars) .

    • Yeah, I absolutely love it. Just can't fault it if I tried.   
    • Hit's all the right spots for me. Great album.
