So no "Muskrat Love."

Captain & Tennille back in Arizona, but not back together

The demographic is just about right for her type of music.

Oh no! Say it ain't so!

I'm in Prescott and an old blues fan, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mississippi John Hurt, Leadbelly, Bessie Smith etc. They were the foundation of all the great rock bands from the mid 60's to the mid 70's. Jim Morrison and The Doors, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Canned Heat, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, The Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull, Dire Straights that kind of great stuff. I also like Bob Dylan who was influenced by Woody Guthrie. There's nothin' like driving along old Route 66 while listening to Woody Guthrie. I'm also into the "Big Band" era of the 30's and 40's.

Captain & Tennille? That's elevator music.

Funny that you should mention blues in a thread about Toni Tennille.

When she and the Captain were still in the charts, I saw her make an appearance on one of the late-night talk shows (I think it was the Tonight Show) without the Captain. She performed with the show's band, doing a blues standard like "Blues in the Night" or "3 O'clock Blues", and did a great job with it. I was totally impressed, having never realized that she was really a great singer with a very powerful voice. Too bad that aside from that one performance, all I ever heard from them was "Love Will Keep Us Together" and their other pop hits.

I can't argue that, just not my kind of music. There are a lot of great singers out there especially from the "Big Band" era. Jo Stafford, Ella Fitzgerald, Bea Wain, Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Vaughn Monroe etc. Although before my time I've got a large collection of music from that era.

My all time favorites are Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin. Oh, I almost forgot Roy Orbison and Eric Burdon. There are others of course. I still mourn the passing of "Big Jimbo" and "Janis" to this day. Drugs and alcohol, what a shame!

Jim Morrison was the "Lizard King" and many of The Doors songs have captured the mood of the southwest with it's strange creatures and mysterious landscape. One of the reasons that I've always been fascinated with and always wanted to live there and am now living in Arizona. Thee greatest state in the country, I might add. I've not been dis-appointed.
