Here's one I had forgotten until hearing it on XM Radio yesterday. Looking Glass with Brandy.

Well, "kind of" a nautical theme to this one. Blondie and The Tide is High



This one from the 80s. The Pretenders and Back on the Chain Gang

Hope I didn’t post this already. One of the best ensembles ever—McCartney, Clapton, Jeff Lynne, Ringo, Billy Preston and a bunch of A-List players at the Concert for George. McCartney’s high harmony toward the end gives me goose bumps.

Thank you Sir for posting this Beautiful Performance. "Concert For George" was a marvelous tribute - better to say a Memorial - to «The Quiet Beatle».

This might be fun if you’re an ELO fan. They were one of the most innovative pop bands ever and Jeff Lynne is a certified musical genius, IMHO. The first version is from the very successful concert with full orchestra he gave in London in 2014 that sparked a lot of renewed interest in ELO.



Below is the same song by Jeff and his pianist, Richard Tandy. It’s an amazingly complex song to arrange just for guitar and piano, but they nail it.

Thank you for another great contribution, Ian. We have been priveleged to live through a great period of music. I have lived from the big band era to the present day. Here's another venerable group that I thought of. They had so many hits in the 50s and 60s.

It has indeed been a privilege to live in an age of such amazing music, Don. I doubt any generation has experienced, as it was happening, the sheer diversity we’ve witnessed. I do wish I’d been exposed to more music from other cultures like La Mer, Pilou, omc and BruceK have been posting—that’s one reason this thread is so enjoyable.

The Platters were one of my faves back in the day — as was this guy.

Here's one from one of our best county singers and song writers.

I had forgotten this one from 38 Special until hearing it on the 80s channel today.

Daly Wilson Big Band

Last century The Daly Wilson Big Band brought back the big band sound in Australia. I`ll go digging for a more mainstream piece, but this cover of a Eumir Deodato tune is worth hearing:

Daly Wilson Big Band: "Satin Doll"

Here`s that more mainstream Daly Wilson song, Satin Doll. If you like big bands in full flight I hope enjoy it:
Sounds like it was uploaded from a vinyl recording, pretty sure I`ve got it stashed away somewhere myself.
Marcia Hines is an Afro American singer brought to Australia from USA by the late Harry M Miller, who died this week. She must feature on other tracks. Still performing, as is her daughter Deni Hines.

Great post, Bruce. I for one love the big bands. Here's a version of Satin Doll that I paricularly like. It's the smooth sound of the Duke Ellington Orchestra.

Thanks Don, liked the Duke`s version too, how fortuitous someone took the trouble to film it. That double bass looks to have seen some service!

Here's a new group to me that was picked up off the Airstream site. Thanks for that one, Peter. Good Blue Grass sound with good harmony and good picking. Yee haw!





And another group I just stumbled across. There is so much talent out there. Here they are with a little novelty song. Enjoy. These girls are just full of music.

I don't recall anything from Tina Turner. I think that after a long career that she retired last year.

Here's one I particularly liked back in the 70s. Johnny Nash and I Can See Clearly Now.



Also one from the 70s I really liked. Orleans with Dance with Me.

Let's bring back a huge talent that we lost last year. Yeah, I'm talking about the man with the big voice, David Bowie. Here he is with Let's Dance.

Cdb

This is a shameless but good EW&F cover, by CDB, Sydney based harmony/R&B quartet, recorded at "The Basement" jazz venue Sydney in 2008. CDB was said to be "the ethic version of Human Nature", a harmony quartet who have performed often in USA, especially LA. Unlike this track, most of CDB`s work is original,they formed in the 1990s and got together again recently.

Here’s another one with sweet voices that flew under my radar until my sister-in-law played it for us.

Ian, I think the Dirt Band flew under everyone's radar. Loved it!

Here's one from a group that must have invented 4 part harmony.



And this duo did not do a bad job on 2 part harmony.
