Joey ryan from milk carton kids plays a beautiful vintage j45
Keith plays a little Martin but Iíve been a fan since way back

Their new album is due out soon but it seems theyíve discovered John martyn or drugs or both ...

Put the kettle on , have a coffe and drift away to this

Thanks. Not heard them before. Especially liked the instrumental interlude the middle starting around the 4 minute mark.
Encouraging to see that good music like this is so widely popular in the world.

This is good, , , and it's genre I dig. Pretty difficult as it proposes for a psychological dimension, which demands honesty thus hole through.
It has to be free and the players must be good enough to rely on control-loss, , , without thinning out or losing it (the hippie-music-trap #1).

Astral Weeks, which I know U rate high, managed all this and probably was among the trailblazers in this field.
I don't believe Dylan ever searched there, , , neither Simon & Garfunkel, who were far to hooked up on stellar songs to emancipate themselves in this direction.

The next tune comin' up, Younger Years, is more S & G-like though - it comes in the vein of solo-Simon's Duncan.
All in all nice - I knew of Milk Cartoon Kids and found them good earlier.

That corny milky cloth around the Martin-neck had an effect too. Category = puristic pr-gimmick de luxe.

I now waltz into Big Time, , , , though it isn't really a waltz, is it. .

Yeah

The white hanky was apparently to stop harmonics from the strings above the capo
But thereís no doubt about it having a bullfighters flamboyant stage gimmick

Yea I believe like some older lady who was a fan asked him for his dream guitar and I guess he showed her an eBay auction and she bought it for him. Iím pretty sure itís a 50s.

Amazing and completely unique event.
It kind of explains the cloth as well, , , the companion uses it every time the 45-tale makes his tears roll, heaven bless him.

Milk Cartoon Kids, , , what!! , , are we sure they don't mean Cats.
And do they come with brandy. That would bring them up under the sun.

I'm with ya, bbg. The best I can hope for is somebody buying my CD for $10. A vintage guitar? Probably not. 😀

At least it's "pure" jealousy. 😀

Back to the original reason for your post, these guys are special. Would love to see them live one day. In addition to Simon and Garfunkel, their voices also remind me of Peter and Gordon, from back in the day. Of course, they are much more adept at playing their guitars than P&G.
