    A bravura performance.She doesn't have the greatest voice, you are born with that, but, her musicianship , timing, phrasing, emotion so hauntingly beautiful. Grabs your heart and won't let go . Breathtaking.I wish you hadn't posted it, I couldn't stop listening. Made me start going through my CD's . This song is not Rock and Roll, it is an aria. What a perfect ear she has. Damn, now I can't get her out of my head. I've got to hear it again on my stereo.

      I can't tell you how pleased I am that you enjoyed this. I bought this album when I was sixteen. Thanks for the education as always. arie [ˈaːrje], or arias in common usage, diminutive form arietta [aˈrjetta] or ariette) in music was originally any expressive melody, usually, but not always, performed by a singer. The term became used almost exclusively to describe a self-contained piece for one voice, with or without orchestral accompaniment, normally part of a larger work. The typical context for arias is opera, but vocal arias also feature in oratorios and cantatas, sharing features of the operatic arias of their periods.

        Like a fool, I got rid of my vinyl but kept my phonograph. That particular cut is goose-bump making. It reminds me of how certain persons like this kind of music, but not that kind of music, it's like saying I like forest scenery but not western scenery. You must listen to everything, If I hadn't, I would never have discovered Frank Zappa or Samuel Barber or Igor Stravinsky or Beethoven. I don't have enough hours to squeeze in all the books and music now that I'm no longer "working."

          Well, some things that some ignorant beings call "music" are not music, and I do not have to listen to any more of them to know that ;^) I get enough of that noise when I have to stop at traffic lights on occasion.

          That said, I agree, that you should have an open mind on styles of music up to the point of irritation. I don't care for certain styles in general but they do not irritate me to hear a bit now and then. I don't like every performance done by my favorites singers/musicians either.
          ;^)

            Like food, where the variety is endless. Many dishes are mouth watering but some are stomach churning.
            I love this song but alas the band was a "one hit wonder" in my opinion.https://g.co/kgs/kAwkNb

              Speaking of one hit wonders, this one had a home made (Musitron clavioline) synthesizer riff at about 1:07 that was one of the earliest hits using a synthesizer:

                Very cool thanks . I remember the Minnesota state fair had an enclosed area called the teen fair.
                In 1969 my buddies and I spent the week listening to bands. the shows were sponsored by Moog synthesizers and the sky was the limit with the sounds.

                First produced in 1964 by Robert Moog, the machine in short order became a fixture in experimental and rock compositions, though it had yet to gain the widespread recognition it would later enjoy.
                The 2 bands that played everyday were The Association including "Windy", "Cherish", "Never My Love" and "Along Comes Mary") and Sugarloaf one hit "Green eyed lady". Good times for a twelve year old.

          I was able to hear Samuel Barber and Adagio for strings as well as Agnus Dei. A sheynem dank.,
          Both took me to different places. Adagio was like a stroll along a clear gentle stream with its strings an onomatopoeia of rhythmic babbles and ripples
          Flowing seamlessly together as a ray of Sunshine
          To a rainbow .
          Agnus Dei had quite a familiar feeling and I started thinking of the Cathederal with its massive dome and a wonderful choir singing as the gentle snowflakes fell in still air, contrasting with the dark purple sky and brightened when struck by the reach of the street lights. Shalom

          I saw Frank Zappa in 1974 , quite a creative mind and he could play the guitar. My buddies and
          I loved "Dynamo Hum" we were 15 and it was a naughty song. Thanks for the tip on Samuel Barber will give him a listen.
          When asked what kind of music do I like I have always responded "anything that is played with heart and soul"

      I am curious as to the injury you suffered that ended your music career.
      I love a mix of violins and an orchestra accompanying rock music.

        As a trombonist or a composer/arranger? No accident. Clinical depression struggled life-long along with dyslexia and borderline autism. Scrambled brain syndtrome, (My diagnosis). By the way, I applaud you. Anyone who can use Yiddish correctly even correctly idiomatically, -- you're a pretty sharp guy.We'll have to meet someday before I assume room temperature.

          Opshatsn di kompliment.
          The BW said she would love to meet , she thinks we would hit it off.

          As for "Scrambled brain syndtrome" Syndrome no t .So I could say spelling on occasion and re: depression often said to be anger turned in... You have been up to the challenges that life throws at you and I applaud that. You are a pioneer as an Objectivist!
          You could have written this evaluation.
          A study of self-improvement products by a panel of the prestigious National Research Council, Enhancing Human Performance, surveyed an assortment of the less far-fetched offerings of the "brain booster" genre and came to the conclusion that (alas!) there is no reliable substitute for practice and hard work when it comes to getting ahead in life. This unwelcome news has done little, however, to dissuade millions who are comforted by the prospect that the shortcut to their unfulfilled dreams lies in the fact that they just haven't quite found the secret to tap this vast, allegedly unused cerebral reservoir.

        Couldn't bend my left forefinger for many years but I thought I might pickup the piano but that never materialized...hell, I don't even re-record my music anymore.
        Funny how I just constantly move on from one thing to another...just how I've lived my life.

            It drives mine of 25 years nuts! But, what can I say, I get bored or reach a certain level of competence then move on or are lead to other related things.
            For instance: from Musician to a recording studio to sound systems, car stereo and installations, (small chain of stores), to country western dance teacher all the while working and advancing in the printing world until it's collapse in 1995 ending as production manager...guess we could add...writing books to that thread.
            So how's that for "hope and change" ? laughing.

            Not to mention everything in between and an invention or two along the way.
            Have no idea where my current path will lead me...but that's what's so exciting about this life style.
