I watched most of Grammy's, and I don'rt think they awarded the best instrumental Grammy on the show. Who won it? I couldn't catch the fast-moving fine print on the bottom of the screen.

Mrs. O'Leary's Cow
Brian Wilson

Never heard the song myself, so can't judge whether the award was merited.

I haven't heard Wilson's song, either. I appreciate the response.

While I'm biased toward the Brothers, Brian Wilson's, "Smile," and Mrs O'Leary's Cow from that album, is a worthy choice. Smile was to be the follow-up to "Pet Sounds." Listen to "Pet Sounds" (one of Paul McCartney's favorite albums ever), and its influence on Sgt. Pepper is rather obvious.

Unfortunately at the time, both the "Smile" project, and Brian Wilson, fell apart simultaneously - it was good to see it finally released.

What about the Tom Dowd DVD? Did that win? I'm too lazy to look.

Elf,

Since it was a documentary and no CD was released, it could not be a part of Grammies. Perhaps in a couple of weeks when they have the Academy Awards, it might be win best documentary. Haven't looked to see if it nominated, I'll let you do that.

I'll have to go back and listen again, but I could swear "Onda" had lyrics in it. How could a song with lyrics be considered and instrumental??

Pixi, Fred, and Philip, here's the winner in that category:
Long Form Music Video: Concert for George, Various Artists

That was an all-star concert tribute to George Harrison, MC'd by Eric Clapton.

Not that it wasn't a very good production, but it seems like the dead were being excessively honored this year. Ray Charles cleaned up with like 8 Grammys; the movie Ray {Ray Charles smiley} had generated huge posthumous, pre-Grammy buzz for him, but frankly, on almost every cut on that Genius Loves Company album, his voice was really failing. (Better than having Kanye West cruise home with all the Grammy bling-bling, though!)

Lifetime Achievement Award to Janis Joplin? Again, no disrespect to the dead, but just what has Janis done for the music world lately? It's not like the similar award to the ancient Pinetop Perkins, who might not ever have been much more than a competent sideman to brighter blues stars, but at least he has been plugging away on that piano for decade upon decade upon decade. The Janis honor might have something to do with biopics on her now in the early stages.

You're right, but I'm not sure that's a new thing for the Grammys.

Maybe all the best talent is slowly dying. Harder to find living people to honor. Myself I love Janis Joplin but i agree there would seem to be picks more worthy. Duane Allman just for starters. I need look no further than him inspiring the two guitar players in the ABB today as proof of his influence.

Maybe next year they could start the Grammy's with a 25 minute Mtn Jam in honor of Duane. They could try and get all the living members past and present on the stage together.

Just a thought. Now somebody get an email address and let's bombard them all year.
