DARK EYES – #BOTB RESULTS

22 CommentsBattle of the Bands (BOTB), Link Ups, Music

Welcome back!  It’s time to announce the results for July 1st’s BOTB post.

Battle of the Bands BOTB

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by Far Away Series and  StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.

This one pitted Tennessee’s guitar virtuoso, Chet Atkins
against Dutch-Indonesian band, The Tielman Brothers

The Tielman Brothers were strong coming out of the gate, but then it looked like Chet Atkins was catching up. Many of you, myself included, liked both versions and had trouble deciding. In the end, the musical acrobatics of The Tielman version won me over, as it did several other participants.

AND THE WINNER IS:

THE TIELMAN BROTHERS

By two thirds of the vote
[Sorry, Chet. Still an excellent performance, regardless.]

  1. Hi Debbie! I just wanted to stop by and say hi though I’m still on leave from blogging. This sounds like it was so much fun. I’ve never heard of the of Tielman Brothers…I don’t think? I hope you have a great day! 🙂

  2. Hey Debbie, I just wanted you to know that I’m following your Blogspot account, but I can’t follow this one. WordPress blogs don’t have a Google Friend Connect button. I used to be able to add WordPress blogs by copy/pasting the URL into my reader. Now I follow too many blogs and it won’t allow me to do that any longer. PLUS, I can’t delete any blogs from my reader that don’t have the Google Friend Connect button, because my “settings” tool hasn’t worked for over a year. Each time I click it, it tells me to come back another time. SO, I would follow this blog if I could, but I can’t. So, I don’t get updates on your posts. Please make sure you let me know as you post Soundtrack posts. And keep in mind that I’ll be largely unplugged (at camp) for the next three and a half weeks.Have a fantastic July!

    1. Hi Robin; The Blogspot account only contains an RSS feed of my WordPress posts. Why not subscribe directly to WordPress via RSS feed or email? Just a thought. The “soundtrack” entries will always contain a link to your blog. Doesn’t Blogger give you pingback notices? I’ll be publishing 1966 next week, but not sure exactly what day. If you prefer, I could send you an email when it’s live. Have a lovely time. It’s good to unplug once in awhile. 🙂

  3. Hi, Debbie the Doglady! Thanks for reporting the outcome of your latest band battle, dear friend. The final tally does not surprise me. I noticed right away on day one that the vote was trending toward a Tielman victory. I liked their exotic sound and I voted for their version. I agree that Chet Atkins also did a fine job with the tune and it doesn’t surprise me that a third of the readers preferred his old school Nashville style. I hope you have been well, dear friend. Take good care of yourself and your canines and I hope to see you again soon!
