Today is a Pat Metheny day for me. I have most of his works from the 80's -90's.
Unfortuanately Lyle Mayes was part of his group and died sometime in 2020. Here are a few samples some of you may like....
Lots of Pat Metheny loses me, but some I love, and I saw him in concert in about 1985, and it was fantastic.
Anyway, the two favorite songs of his for me are Cross the Heartland and the Search, both from American Garage, 1979. They have just enough structure and melody to pull me in. I absolutely love those two songs.
I had a few Pat Metheny albums on vinyl of course, and some Lyle Mays, too. Thanks for reminding me of this music!
Pearl Jam - Alive Live
Song is sad, but great!
Very soothing, trippy throwback... obscure but a gem...
Here is a little SRV gem I ran across............Texas has produced some legendary guitar pickers........Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Vaughn, Johnny Copeland, Lighting Hopkins............but this guy takes it to another level. A little background on the tune...........SRV wrote this in tribute to his friend Charlie Wirz who was one of his guitar techs..........in fact you'll see him switch guitars early on in this set to one he dubbed Charlie in his honor........enjoy!
Another Texas icon.................some classic Beatweed.....enjoy!
somemore classic Janis........what a voice...........enjoy!
She arrived in Austin about 4-5 years too early, and supposedly was not well appreciated and treated just awfully. Had she got out of high school and first shown up at UT around 1970 or a few years later (assuming she lived at that time) she would have run the town. A bit ahead of her time.
I can relate to the Stones!
I have been going through Metallica albums. I think Master of Puppets is the best overall.
Also early Faith No More is great.
Don Walser--one of my favorites from the '90s Austin country scene; he was a regular at the Broken Spoke and Henry's:
