Sorry Ray, I was stopped by some sort of sign-in procedure.
I thought sign-in was still optional at the BBC website, hmm.

we actually watched it via catch-up on the TV.

There's some great archive material on iplayer (generally, not just music) so maybe worth having a sign-in anyway as the BBC isn't intrusive with lots of spam etc.

Where are those Weather Report extracts, Nick ?

Meanwhile, next -
Citation : Percussion . From John Peel's all-time favourite drummer.
One of my favourite tracks, from 3:42 approx. for nearly 2 minutes, Robert Wyatt shows off the kind of musical talent that very few drummers ever have :

Different genre but James Gadson got a talent that drives songs like a choo choo IMO. Also, top secret stabs at 1.31 let you know he's still listening


The whole song is just so awethumne in its simplicity, Bill knew what he had there was special I reckon.

W"as going to post some, but forgot. This is to me a good example, I think WR tends to be a bit under raved about (IMHO) after Jaco was left.

Ooof :!: Just been knocked off my feat by that. Some serious musical education there, confirms Zawinul as a genius and that drummer ( Omar Hakim ? ) - fantastic . Thanks Nick !

Meanwhile, here a clip I had to post at some point .
Rock guitar : Jeff Beck , Big Block, Ronnie Scott's in 2007 . Nuff said :

Songwriting and vocals -
Probably my favourite track from Joni Mitchell's early period , but there are plenty to choose from.
I can well believe David Crosby's comment that he was 'transfixed' when he first saw Joni in Florida :

"There's a sorrow in his eyes, like the angle made of tin...what will happen if I try to place another heart in him"
