I'd heard of Carrie Akre back in the day, but never really checked her out until recently.  I was missing out.  She was in local bands Hammerbox and Goodness, did some solo stuff.  There were the Big Four grunge bands, but some lesser known groups that were part of that scene (Ellensburg's own Screaming Trees, for example) I think were about as good as the mega popular artists.  Anyway, here's a little sampling of Carrie.

I posted something with this young Ukrainian yodeler in another thread.  I just can't stop listening to her.  Makes me smile every time.

I don't think I had any idea Letters to Cleo existed before the movie 10 Things I  Hate About You.  I come back to them off and on, really like their sound.

Anne Elk -
re: last email:

okay here it is.... date on video says 1987, and I saw this at a film festival in Seattle when it came out, so I'm going to guess that would have been either in 1987 or 1988 - the same event where I saw the two I posted just above.

hard to describe the effect this had on me sitting in a dark theater watching it on a big movie screen. disturbing, to say the least, but then, the purpose of art is to evoke a response from the viewer/listener, right? wink.gif

Hello Dad!

(* the title I have entered here is how it appeared on the screen when I first saw it. *)

Some stunning mountain scenery to go along with the song.

So, zephyr, did you see the movie?  Did you like it? These biopics can be so ... something off. It's gotta be weird for the subjects when films are done about people still living.  Like, do you think the Windsors have been watching "The Crown"?

A bit of random nice scenery, and a bunch of cute dogs in this lyric video.

Haha!   No I didn't see the movie yet.  I may be able to find it at the library.  I was stationed in Long Beach in the early Seventies.  I remember a shipmate playing his music.  A family friend bought me tickets to E.J.'s performance at the Greek Theatre in Griffith park.  I was only a few rows away from the stage.  It was an amazing experience in such a small historic venue (photos).  Here's a page from his performance schedule showing the nights at The Greek.  He was already appearing before huge crowds, so it was special to get to see him there.  I didn't know much about him at the time, but remember seeing him jump off his seat while singing and playing.  Here's a copy of the set list from that night.  "Your Song" is at the top. 

I tend to like his earlier music better.  He's a complex artist and I have no idea how true-to-life the biopic is.  But this particular scene with this particular song was powerful and subtle at the same time.  Just loved seeing it being created in front of our eyes.  (Not sure if that is accurate, but who cares.  It was a beautiful scene.) 

As for The Crown, interesting you should mention that.  I just got the 3rd season DVD from the library and have watched the first one last night.  Amazing how that first episode echoes the current political drama that we are facing today.  Surely some of those folks are watching the series.  It's not only dramatic, but brilliantly cast and the set design / locations feel authentic.  You may recall that the current season (4) which has been playing lately had a bit of a dust up when someone from the royal family staff complained about accuracy and wanted The Crown to put out disclaimers on portions being non-historic or something to that effect.  Here's more on that.  I see so few films and no television these days for a variety of reasons.  But occasionally get a dvd from the library.  This series has definitely been entertaining and though maybe inaccurate gives a good impression of those eras.  Maybe the more recent ones will disappoint.  We'll see.       ~z

Here's an artist that I didn't know, but came across tonight.  She passed away today at age 78.

Such a distinctive, beautiful voice.  ~z
