One of the best musicals of all time; you have to be able to get past the "over the top" stuff, and the extended version with ALL of John Lee Hooker's performance is worth having ....

"Nice? They're the only thing," said the Water Rat Solemnly, as he leaned forward on the handlebars. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about with bikes."

...as mentioned before I avoided to post clips here due to being a musician my criteria etc could be different, also that all these clips are compressed so you really cannot hear a musical piece this way; however I decided to put this one because have 100 years and I think that is one of the most important pieces showing a simple (yet beautiful) melody working in conjunction with noise with perfect results.
Also that most in this forum have English background or English language so you really be familiarized with these types of melodies.
All in acoustic environment. This is the most fiery version.
Would not be easy for you mostly but please give it an opportunity listening more than one time (and at least with phones but better with an amp) and may be (I hope) serves to open another type of musical path for many here.

John Kay, "Heretics and Privateers." He found his protest songs again. Also renewed my love for Missing Persons, a lot of Zappa musicians, there was some good music in the '80s (not much, but this qualifies.)
Tomorrow I have a stick with a lot of fast-tempo, mostly instrumental tunes loaded up for the ride to Barber: Jeff Beck, Jan Hammer, Tangerine Dream, Al DiMeola, Dixie Dregs, Brand X, JS Bach (goes with the Beemer.)

he was a master.

...latin America is too extensive to think about that like the same thing all the way South. In fact there are really nothing in common except the language (at some point) and the Spanish conquerors.
So when you heard "latin jazz" "latin music"...well, more like Caribbean rhythms amalgam (except for bossa nova); even in a classic rock/pop a la Santana with his mixolydian solos is just Cuban, Mexican influences.
In this case this is other type of "latin" music; is from deepest Brazil and mainly you can imagine it like a Samba rhythm as a base but with a bit of indigenous (with that Spanish melting pot derivation some 500 years ago) and a bit of small town jungle vibe.

Here is the original recording of this single; however like all roots styles or genres, if you listen new recordings done with crappy digital keyboards, bad quality drums and horns, well, the final product is pretty poor.
Again, try to listen without losing the bass because is very important here.

I know that this can be very ugly for many here but I think that the point of Kevin Roberts is to fill that gap of us the music lovers.

1. go to the youtube video and copy the entire URL from the address bar (not any "share" text.)

2. go to the britbike reply window, select "use full editor,"

3. go to tbe media dropdown menu and select "youtube video"

4. paste the URL into the entry field, delete any duplicate text, and press enter.

5. save the new reply.

your computer or telephone or iPad or notebook may show your confirm choices as "done," or "ok," or "save," or whatever, but that's the procedure.

I amn teaching my grandson the Cramps song, "When the sun goes down and the moon comes up, I turn into a teenage goo-goo-muck"
Being 3 1/2 he instantly improved, I turn into a teenage poopy butt".
Oh well.

Soon we will be singing the Hamm's Beer Bear song together.

...hi Ricochetrider, well, after listening, I think there are tons of garage bands doing the same or similar stuff; even better, but without any success. The voice and lyrics are just not remarkable and without guts; the drums are less than basic; only two chords without anything.The only embellishment and is what works here, are the clapping hands and the distorted vibrato.
