Foxes and Fossils………keep an eye open for them

There are certain songs that should never be sung by anyone other than the original artist and amongst this list is “Suite Judy Blue Eyes” recorded many years ago by Crosby Stills and Nash. The need for harmonisation of the voices is critical to this song and in all honesty I cannot recall anyone other than CS&N even attempting it.

So today when I was looking at YouTube and listening to various recordings of CS&N one of the links thrown up was a cover version of the above song by someone called “Foxes and Fossils” who, I confess I had never heard of.

I was in two minds as to watch the performance but decided to risk all so clicked on the video. What i heard and saw was a performance of Suite Judy Blue Eyes that is almost as good as the original, played by some local band who do not seem to have any recording contract nor play many gigs.

The two young ladies in the group were 15 and 16 at the time this was recorded and I think one of them has now gone off to college but they have found a replacement.

Anyway, there is little else I can tell you about the group so sit back and enjoy this excellent performance of CS&N classic, Suite Judy Blue Eyes.

    I have followed this group extensively and, frankly, can’t get enough of replaying the many covers that they have done while the girls were teenagers and unencumbered by the responsibilities of school and their moving on to adult responsibilities. I believe that most everyone who has heard them would remark on their clear professional caliber and that they are – were – as good a group as anyone out there. The fact that they never “made it” perhaps proves the rule: “No matter how good you are, if you don’t play your own stuff, you are doomed to playing the local eating houses and perhaps a county fair or two.” That is a sad reality of the music business.
