Several "old codgers" here but as I'm not even 60 yet I tend not to post too often  :D

To follow the construction of my layout "Longcroft" from day 1, you'll have to catch the fish below first by clicking on it which isn't difficult right now as it's frozen!

This is a nice little 5 piece guitar band from Columbus, Ohio that caught my eye/ear a few days back.
They're called Bare Fuzz and are attracting a growing following across the US.
See  what you think :

Stick with it of you like a good old bit of guitar improvisation which fairly rocks along.
I'm sure I'll get used to cream first soon.

7 minutes in and enjoying it, great playing all round - sounds like a bit of a jam at the moment. Nice one Martin @port perran !

It's been pimply sissing down all morning so I've chilled out to a Genesis morning, including what I believe to be an under rated 'Trick of the Tail' album. The vinyl has such a warm sound

I think "A Trick of a Tail" is the best album Genesis ever released Mick @Newportnobby ! When it came out I thought it was a revelation - subtle pun in there*. I cannot get enough of "Los Endos"... A lot of my school chums waxed lyrical over "The Lamb lies down on Broadway" but I was never convinced.

I have "Seconds Out" which covers the Peter Gabriel period.

*I had this on a sampler called "Wowie Zowie"...

Taken from Genesis to Revelation, produced by Jonathan King no less. "Nursey Cryme" was the first proper Genesis album I had but on tape.

Well, less than two months to go before I get to see Solstice live. In their cannon are their two current backing singers (who I hope will be there). Poles apart, here is Ebony Buckle covering Matty Groves...

And, Dyane Crutcher and pals covering Tool's The Pot...

Hmmm, I know which one floats my boat.

@Moonglum I have all the studio albums up to and including 'and then there were three' along with the early 'Genesis Live' album and 'Seconds out', the latter possibly being most most played album ever, especially 'Supper's Ready'.
Sadly, after 'and then there were three' they started spewing out pop singles and I immediately lost interest in them. At least I got to see them twice in their better years

Interesting Tim.
Not too sure about the Dyane Crutcher song but quite impressed by Ebony Buckle.
I've never heard a cover of Matty Groves before but this is not bad at all.
Cheers

Going back to Genesis Mick @Newportnobby , or more accurately Steve Hackett. It is rumoured that following his decision to leave Genesis, his guitar parts on "Seconds Out" were deliberately placed low in the mix. Steve though, as a solo artist, has kept the early Genesis catalogue alive and kicking with his live shows.

He also has collaborated with a Hungarian jazz band Djabe, so here they are with their version of "Firth of Fifth"...

Lovely guitar solo.

Tim @Moonglum I have his 'Genesis Revisited II' double CD but find some of his versions a little dubious. Not a Genesis track but I do like his 'Shadow of the Hierophant' off that album

Very nice indeed.
Not heard that before but very interesting.

I tried to do a reply last night but something went wrong!

Anyway, I am glad that you liked that Martin @port perran . This is rather pleasant as well...

https://youtu.be/BwP6Z3rwnJQ?feature=shared

Mick @Newportnobby , yes I have heard that before. With Nick Beggs (ex Kajagoogoo) on bass/pedals and Amanda Lehmann on vocals and guitar. I like Amanda but find her vocals odd on this performance, otherwise instrumentally a great performance.

Here is Amanda showing off her guitar chops...

I do like that track. The album cover is very 'Roger Dean'-ish

Sorry to bang on again about Genesis but last night I watched a few YouTube clips, in particular featuring Tony Banks on keyboards, so tracks such as 'Watcher of the skies' (Live) and 'Fountain of Salmacis' got a good playing. I think him very under rated.

Now I'm playing some good blues stuff by the 'Walter Trout Band'
I'd recommend 'Cold, cold feeling' to the house

Thanks Tim.
I like the Hackett Djabe number but thought that the Amanda Lehman  track never really got off the ground.
I'm sure I'll get used to cream first soon.
