I can listen to this over and over. It just gives me the chills. Vid is not very clear but the song itself rocks it. John Tesh is on piano.


I lean towards NDN flutes, drums, easy listening.

Anyone here in to that as well?

I did some work for this guy a while ago -


I can't say that I'm into it as much as I am Robbie Robertson or Buffy Ste Marie but if you happen to be listening to it in the desert out here some evening during spring or fall it takes on a whole different meaning.

These song come to mind, not all being perfomed by Native Americans but at least haevily infuenced by them.

Kudos for knowing about Robbie Robertson's Mohawk heritage. His ethnicity aside, I consider him one of the best Canadian musicians of his generation. His work and influence goes 'way beyond 'the Band'.

Robertson is also Canadian. I believe his first gig was with a Canadian legend, Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks along with Levon Helm. Robertson has said many times it was Hawkins' insistence on perfection that drew the attention of Bob Dylan, an association that led to The Band.

They were a regular band we danced to in my teens.

Best song: "Somewhere down the crazy river..." you gotta love the line "...the wind just kind of pushed me there..."

'Take a picture of this...'
"Whoa, this is sure stirring up some ghosts for me!"

That song stirred up some ghosts for me, too- the beat poets, Jack Kerouac- I was too young at the time but really got into that scene later.
Those lyrics are wonderful.
It's a remarkable thing that what I think of as a landmark American song, 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down' was written by a Canadian.

And yeah, he was a Ronnie Hawkins' Hawk.

Oh yeah.....

Before my father died I drove across the continent in a fully loaded 300-Z with the most awesome sound system I have ever heard. I had the album along and the whole thing made me re-visit some ghosts of the past. By then I had been sober more than ten years, and I really related to "the wind kind of pushed me that way"

I also had Lorena McKinnet along for the ride. That and Tom Cochrane & Red Rider with the song "Big Leagues".

Kind of a Canadian music hat trick in itself
