    Default Season 255: The J's Have It!

    Season 255: The J’s Have It!

    Happy New Year, Seasonistas! It’s 2017 (or almost!) and now we gather around our virtual hearth, ukuleles in hand, to celebrate music yet again.

    The turning of a calendar’s page to a new year often means looking back as we move forward. Looking at the “2017” made me think about that new “7” in the date. And that took me back to a very important time in my lifelong love of music – the early 70’s.

    For me, it was a time of phenomenal singer-songwriters. And looking back at it now, on the brink of 2017, I noticed something that I had never noticed before. So many of my favorites had first names that began with the letter “J.”

    Last time I hosted (Season 190), I welcomed everyone to my home, Long Island. This time I welcome everyone to my musical “home.” Visit my favorite singer-songwriters from the early 70’s! Well, I mean those whose first names begin with a “J.”

    Please – come in. You can leave your Frye boots, desert boots and Earth shoes by the door. I’ll take your coats. Go ahead over to the fireplace. Warm your hands and have something to eat and drink. And for my friends Down Under? Did you need the window open for a cool breeze to return you to the memories you hold of these artists? I can do that!

    No digital devices. No clocks or watches. It’s the 70’s. A fine place to be with your friends and all that great music. Stay all night.

    Here’s the challenge:

    View the list of singer-songwriters I’ve provided below. Each has a special connection to me.

    Cover songs written, recorded or performed by these artists. The songs you perform may be from any point in the artist’s career. Be sure to identify the artist is in the thread which contains your posted vid.

    If you prefer to compose an original song, please use this opportunity to revisit the 70’s for you in your lyrics and/or musical compositions.

    Unlimited entries. No previously posted vids on any Seasons related threads.

    Let's hope WS64 doesn't post his version of Annie's Song or it will all be over before it's started.

    I'm sorry that you're disappointed, but I didn't forget Jerry Jeff Walker. I just didn't listen to him at that time.
