Yes, she was tops back then.
Playing music on the guitar is like sculpturing your soul with musical notes. 🙂 6stringer pete
The melody of the notes is what expresses the art of music . 🙂 6 stringer Pete
It really is all about ”melody”. The melody comes from a language from our heart. Our heart is the muscle in music harmony. The melody is the sweetness that it pumps into our musical thoughts on the fretboard. 🙂 6 stringer Pete

Barbara Lynn celebrated her 77th birthday last January and she was still playing strong around that time. Keep on! Here she is at 74.
“What’d I Say” opens The Beat (Volume 2, Show 7), a show that ran for only one glorious season in 1966. Hoss Allen, a swinging DJ from Nashville radio station WLAC, dreamed it up and hosted it. It was filmed in Dallas because they didn’t have the ability to film in color in Nashville. Gatemouth Brown was musical director and he led the band for most of the show’s run. Billy Cox (from Band of Gypsies) was one of the bassists, Jimmy Johnson (Nashville blues guitarist and mentor to Jimi Hendrix) played guitar on some episodes. The guest list was out of this world. Little Milton (whose guitar playing shouldn’t be overlooked) opened the first set of the first show with “We’re Gonna Make It.” Freddie King (at that time he was known as Freddy, with a “Y”) was on so many shows, Stefan Grossman collected his 14 songs on a stand-alone DVD from Vestapol (along with a couple later bonus performances). Not only was Otis Redding a guest, he hosted the final show because Hoss Allen was distraught over the cancellation. Plus, some nice surprises! They’re almost all here, dig in!
Thanks to Bear Family, the series is available for purchase on 4 DVDs. They make great gifts!
There’s some other musical TV shows on that playlist after The Beat, but none of them were as dynamic as The Beat. I first became aware of it in 2015 and I thought it must be the best thing ever on TV. I’m still sure of that.
