    Or again, not exactly new, but for some cool rocky blues, with a bit of 'edge', here's Ledfoot (Tim Scott McConnell):



    Check out his new album White Crow, it's tops: https://play.google.com/music/previe...mm72v7u?play=1

    Cheers Marco, I will check them all out as I know you have impeccable taste, apart from your Steely Dan issues.

    Lol - I don't hate SD, or even remotely dislike them.

    I fully 'get' why they're hugely popular, and they've rightly earned their reputation as one of the best American rock bands of all time, and I have all of their albums on vinyl, plus some duplicates on CD... *But* whilst I've always liked their music, I've never been a big fan - and that's the difference. I also haven't played any of their stuff for years.

    Plus, and don't get me wrong this doesn't apply to every SD fan, as I know there are plenty of exceptions, but in general (based on my experience) they tend to be rather stuck in their ways, and their musical choices 'safe'/samey, not very experimental, and rather boring, so if they're not listening to their Dan albums, it'll be something else of a similar ilk, or of the same genre/era.

    The other thing that pisses me off is how 'audiophiles' have adopted their music, as in general it's well produced and therefore been played to death at hi-fi shows, or before then during 'tune dems' I've attended back in the day, where the LP12 turntable was demonstrated by Linn representatives, and all of that nerdy sadness for me has eroded much of SD's musical merit.

    As you can see from the stuff I've just posted videos of, my musical tastes are VERY wide and varied(!) and therefore not easily pigeonholed into any one category, plus this bit is crucial:

    I don't (or very rarely) listen to the same music/play the same albums I grew up with [although I was mostly into pop and electronic music when I was a teenager], which many people around my age tend to do/have those habits, and be rather stuck in their ways.

    Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt - and moved on! So these days I like finding new stuff and pushing my musical boundaries, and even listening to types of music that at one time I'd *never* have entertained in a month of Sundays, such as jazz and classical, and which I now love!

    I guess it's part of my experimental nature and desire to be different, and not make the same old predictable choices. I'm exactly the same with food, drink, cars, travel, interior design - you name it! A creature of habit or a 'mainstream monkey' I am not!

    Anyway, hopefully I've successfully made my point.

    .
    Name just one then. This is the same bollocks as the myth that there are people with massively expensive systems but who only own a handful of recordings. They don't exist. The reality is the people with massively expensive systems also have huge collections of vinyl and CD, more than they could ever have the time to listen to.

    The reason people still listen to - and bang on about - The Eagles, Steely Dan, Led Zep and so on is because they were brilliant, a cut way above the average. So their music remains popular and timeless. Funnily enough you could say the same about The Beatles, but Beatles fans never get accused of living in the past, or having limited taste or any of that nonsense. There's more content on this site about the Beatles, and the zillion re-issues of the Beatles, than about any other band put together.

    Likewise people listening to classical like Bach, Beethoven, Mozart also never get any of this sort of grief, and yet that music has been around for hundreds of years. Talk about living in the past! Once again, the continuing popularity of their compositions is down to their genius. No doubt there were a thousand other composers running around at the same time as they were and who have disappeared into obscurity. The cream always rises to the top and stays there forever. Mediocrity gets forgotten.

    I also have most of Steely Dan's output (on vinyl), I don't know why, because I'm not sure if I like them and only play them sporadically.
    I fucking hate the Eagles, man. As far as Steely Dan is concerned, the first five albums are essential and I often play them, the later ones less so. Once they become more jazz than rock I kind of lost interest.
