    This sounds like early-era Chicago. It isn't, but it could be, even if it's not.

    A "live" performance by Barbara Mandrell of "Till You're Gone," a #1 country song from the summer of 1982 (and one of the 20 biggest hits of that year). The clip is from her very last concert ever in 1997, at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, nearly 40 years after she first became a professional musician (at age 11). Barbara played the sax (one of ten or so instruments she played) in her shows and always featured brass in her back-up band. She even got the rule changed for Opry shows that 'no brass instruments' were allowed to be played on stage. Fortunately, she and Roy Acuff were good friends and he couldn't tell her 'no' when she asked. :)



    On a personal note, it's odd to realize that she has now been retired for more years (22) than she racked up in her career on the Country Singles charts (21). Time certainly moves along quickly when you're not paying attention.

    Am I really the first one that remembered the glorious beginning of this video?


    I welcome any opportunity to include a Better Off Dead reference to my day.

    These guys are not the first to pop into mind when talking about brass...but I thought about them in the middle of the night - although the memory came not from them singing it, but from the wedding scene in "Love Actually". :D

    This is really kinda cheating (and I'm not going to go into my stash of big band & swing music) but you just CANNOT have a brass theme without Satchmo!

    Horns perhaps...


    or perhaps not...


    When the Mills Brothers started out back in the late 1920's/early 1930's, they had to put a disclaimer on their records as result of some controversy over whether they were using instruments on their recordings.

    When I saw Maynard Ferguson (he was my idol when I played trumpet in high school jazz band), that kind of opened a whole other door.....but I suppose we'd better keep it to pop music.

    I'm so disappointed in myself for not including a Cake song.

    Saw this last night in Moline. Yes, there were actual horn players there.
