Truth from around the World
Bachata is cool music, it's like the blues of the Dominican Republic.
I am inclined to approve of the internet because of the availability of music, and the fact that you can find oldies and groups that you thought were long gone.I mentioned to my oldest son before I went in the hospital last week that I'd been trying to find a C & W song I'd heard in the '60s, either Red Sovine or Tex Ritter had sung it, I wasn't sure. Turned out to have have been Ritter.But it was about a man waiting for a person who was "Comin' After Jinny".Son says he knows it, bids me wait a minute, and reads it to me.It's a Shel Silverstein poem (he's a great fan, I've raised my sons right!)and he finds out that there are downloads available.They are of Burl Ives, but I like Burl, too, so now I have it!I'd like to hear Loudon Wainwright III or Tom Russell do it, it'd be marvellous.The "boss" of our mariachi band finds performances, and I watch and listen to them so we can do our own arrangements. How cool is that? Once it was science fiction, now it's fact.
Thanks, PasserBy, I was wondering what 'bachata' meant.Sarge, good music is simply where you find it.
