Re: Which artists are underrated or forgotten?

I have just listened to the 2 tracks of Ionia and I didn't enjoy them as my favorites.

Enya
Enya...Shepherd Moon
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PekgfIza ... playnext=1
Enya - Caribbean Blue
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1L8uRApYeQ
Enya - Only Time
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0NoHN1TU5I

I like most of what the Celtic Woman puts out
Celtic Woman - Fields Of Gold (I have a sweet spot for that tune) but this is a great cover
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXPqCv9dV6g

Lisa Gerrard - Now We Are Free
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHAvjaHtlMA

Secret Garden - a Norwegian, Celtic Duet, he composes and plays the piano, she sings and playes the violin
They often invite other singers to sing the lead. Barbra Streisand sang one one track in their last album.
You Raise Me Up - Secret Garden feat. Brian Kennedy (The original and I think the best version)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UddLOA-QoqM


If you get a chance listen to Celtic Roots I do not know who produced it. I picked it up a decade or so ago. The CD is long gone. Thank god I ripped it!

Just to throw in one up and coming pop singer
Will Martin sings Going Home (not his best but the best I could find on Youtube) My favorite is Into the West which he recorded in his teens.

someone you all should check out : frank Zappa
not so widely known as he should be (although a large cult following, which are very devoted)
if you're into Rock, Jazz, Experimental, Classic, Doo-wop, Hard rock, this guy has it all.

How about Minnie Ripperton. She sang Lovin You. then had to leave the business due to illness. trivia bite: the name she says at the end of the song is her daughter.

here's another one, Steam. Don't know them? check out Na Na Hey, Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye. Great song even if they never were a real band. interested? read up on them and find out why i said they weren't a real band.

Wicked Little Dolls, in particular the songs Scarafina's Box, Rocking Chair and Trash Doll.

Is it OK to post a amazon link when it cannot be found at youtube?

i dont see why you can't post a link to it.
if your going to one item that you are talking about in your post.

its not like your posting hundreds of links to random commercial sites in your subject content.

or multiple links in your signiture that go to them sites that have nothing to do with mediamonkey.

but i as well as others do report spamm which is mostly new members with only spam links in their posts.
and no conversations about mediamonkey.

but your not new and your only going to a item you can't find elsewhere. 8)

That is hilarious!!! We used to sing it over and over for the last 15 minutes of the basketball games in high school. Somehow the chorous is the only part that ever gets sungm which is fine by me. :D

Just listened to some Foghat, very under rated as a band. Wow, these guys were good. Now I need to get their whole catalogue.

I agree with stax - neil young is often forgotten but was a great musician - canned heat - black oak arkansas - the bands of the 70s were great!
