And here is another UK band that was basically a one hit wonder in the US but was popular at home, Dexy's Midnight Runners with "Geno" which seems particularly appropriate for the Boneyard for the title at least.

Not old , but a remake of the Jackie De Shannon classic by the Isley Brothers and Santana. Carlos is so damn good!

Here is one both old and obscure. A doo wop song very popular in Pittsburgh and played by local disc jockey Terry Lee who was a hit maker on WMCK in McKeesport,Pa.

Santana....yea, so good. This one is "Treat", live at Tanglewood in the summer of 1970 - getting up there now age wise, but still as delightful as ever:

The Cox Family never gained widespread popularity, but I think they were fairly well known among other musicians. Alison Krauss in particular championed them, producing some of their albums and doing a collaboration with them. They weren't much for song writing, mostly interpreted bluegrass and country standards. The band was a father and 3 adult children. I think all of them sang lead vocals some, although it was primarily 2 of the kids taking turns. They have many lovely songs, hard to pick one.




(I'm wracking my brain trying to think of another song thread to start and coming up with NOTHING; anybody else got something to help us pass the time?)

I just came across this -- I don't think I'd seen any footage of this incarnation of King Crimson. It's a very entertaining watch:

Now here's one that touches all 3 categories - Brazilian jazz, and I remember it drifting through the open windows of my parents house during the summer:
