Why Worry?

Clink the link above for five  minutes of sublime music from true master-craftsmen. Treasure this because when they are gone something unique in the world of music will be over.
This music makes my skin tingle with pleasure and I think I've got something in my eye.
The comments on You Tube really say it all but please add your opinion here!
In the very early days!

"There should be laughter after pain" - absolutely, in fact it should be mandatory. Sweet song, their voices haven't changed at all it seems :)

AC: They have had an incredible career. This clip is from the 1980s!
I saw them several times including the 1983 reunion concert and their 'final' UK tour a few years ago. The song was written for them by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straights. Thanks for listening.

Lotta, lotta memories. Never heard this version, and was that Michael McDonald at the keyboards?
I always loved, "Cathy's Clown", among so many. Thanks Bazza!!

They will always be a part of my youth. They had a great sound.

Dixie: Yes is was Michael McDonald. The only reason I didn't credit him was because it made the title too long! 'Cathy's Clown' is just the greatest.

bazza said...

SO,AC: Mine too! Over the years their harmonies remained spot on and they heavily influenced the British pop boom of the sixties, especially the Beatles.

Hey bazza,
Well stated, my friend and coincidentally, one of my latest postings was a reference to the Everly Brothers. Dream, dream, dream.....

Gary: Now I understand that 'beam, beam, beam' reference!
