Late in 2014, Pink Floyd released an almost entirely instrumental album, taken from their final recording sessions 20 years prior.  They called the album The Endless River.  Here's one of the songs called "It's What We Do"

Larry (and all)...On the Move is from the Catch Us If You Can (UK)/Having a Wild Weekend (US) Dave Clark Five movie soundtrack. Also found on this Canadian only DC5 LP, called Instrumental Album. YouTube presents an even longer version with some additional tracks:

t -- I couldn't remember if I'd heard it before. Anecdote time regarding the DC5:

From an article called "Whatever Happened to the Dave Clark Five?" 
Quote:
...but the civilian, the man on the street? Nope, no idea who you are talking about. Dave Clark? The name might ring a bell but they think that maybe Dick Clark had a band, or something.

Suffice to say that this wound—i.e. the poor decision that would for all intents and purposes erase them from pop culture history (or at least see their career summed up as I am doing it here)—was self-inflicted. Unlike most groups, the Dave Clark Five owned their own masters. They weren’t obliged to go along with just any company who wanted to release their music on CD, they—Dave Clark in particular—had complete control and sat on the catalog hoping for the biggest pay-off they could get. But Clark apparently waited too long. You couldn’t purchase the music of The Dave Clark Five on any format from 1975 to 1993!

So about 10 years ago, I bought a DC5 CD online called "Hit Collection 2003". Now I know why it was so hard to find anything else without spending a lot more money. This CD was listed as "New" but clearly produced by someone in their basement. However, it does in fact have "On the Move" at track 31.

Punchline: The CD lists it as "One the Movie". 


Two instrumentals from one of their competitors who didn't sit on their catalog:

The Yardbirds, "Got To Hurry" (1965) and "What Do You Want" (1966)

Lisa, you had to find that.  I know you too well.

Thanks to those who voted early, The Dave Clarke Five, and Pink Floyd. [smile]

For the Hoffs fans - I like the Petersons.  Not an instrumental, but a grand song.

Coupla guys who can sure play:

A chorale is present but grand music:

Get on the board, Dennis:

B Bumble taking on Pinetops or Flight of the .....zzzzzzzzzzzz (Do NOT try these dance moves at home)

Link and his Wraymen doing a classic instrumental:

4 good songs, so it's really just personal tastes this time.

I'll vote:

1) 'Diamond Head' by the Boys.

I hiked there several months ago as well as swam and surfed with it in the background.  This song constantly came to mind.

2) 'Bitchin' Summer' by the Bangles

3) 'Albatross' by Fleetwood Mac

(but the pic looks like  a seagull.  or am I calling an albatross, a seagull?

4) The Jeff Beck one

not a bad song, just loses points because it's the only one that has guitar hero pretense (look at me manipulate those wires)

...hate 'Metal Beach'.

Duke Ellington, "Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue", Ellington at Newport, 1956

Quote:
The composition's 1956 performance at the Newport Jazz Festival revitalized Ellington's career, making newspaper headlines when seated audience members chaotically began rising to dance and stand on their chairs during Paul Gonsalves' famous tenor saxophone solo. [Wikipedia]

The amazing sax solo begins at 4:05 and ends at 10:22 in this video:



Two from a later festival:

Santana, "Soul Sacrifice"



Jimi Hendrix, "Villanova Junction"

Great to see so much coming through.  I knew this week I'd get introduced to some new music (to my ears).

It looks like the votes are pulling this pack of songs slightly closer together.

Al, glad that you had a good time at the concert this week, and that Brian s in such good form this far into the tour.  Some really good guitar instrumentals going on.  Really enjoyed the Bangles clip.

t, as usual, an interesting mix.  I agree about he early Fleetwood Mac.  Sad about Peter Green becoming reclusive.

Larry, thanks for all the good surf music.  What a collection!  I had no idea surf instrumentals were so prolific.

John B.  Great comments this week.

Thanks for the votes so far.  I always enjoy seeing how the last voters change things over the weekend.

bonnie -- There are probably as many surf bands & surf instrumentals as there are grains of sand in the average bucket (of sand).

Dick Dale, "Misirlou", live 2009



A few non-surfers:

Little Walter, "Juke", 1952



Booker T. & the M.G.'s, "Time Is Tight", 1969



Miles Davis, "Boplicity", Birth of the Cool, recorded 1949
