Yeah, I concede you're right, Bill does play a great variety.  I'm not going to complain about Radio Paradise anymore, Bill nails it on everything, though I'll still grumble about there being too much Ludovico Einaudi.

What a great combination that would be!  Can you imagine them doing a duet . . . or two?

Love cooking dinner to Harry Manx!  Feels earthy and honest.
I believe this talented guy lives in Nanaimo, BC, of all places.

The only other claim to fame that Nanaimo has is a tasty dessert bar. Highly recommended.

Knopfler and Manx were both born in the UK.
First listen, really good
I love Harry, his use of the mohan veena with blues is a wonderful sound.

Touche.  Sorry, I guess I'm just putting on RP at the wrong times.  Sorry Bill!
Good one. Thanks.

But GetBakedTonight is right, Bill needs to explore Harry Manx's catalog further and not just play one song.  This is kind of a problem with a lot of RP songs.

 

Nailed It!   How would you like 5 across yo lips.

Ha! 
I put it on mute! I simply cannot stand this anymore!

And that same sound, all through his damn stuff? That would be "great!" — see what I'm sayin'? Like Miles Davis always sounds like a friggin' trumpet...

Saw Harry about a month ago, still as impressive as ever. He's a dry, droll punning, technically excellent kind of guy.
I didn't get the impression he minded my (probably naive) questions at all,he just seemed happy somebody had been really listening, trying to pick up the nuances. 
Sing it, Fred G Sanford! Just kidding, I love this song.

Love the Fillmore West-looking album cover.

Douglas, the Isle of Man born, Ontario raised.
Bill: please, please don't wear this gem out with overplay.
I like this song{#Dancingbanana_2}
All fall down, disappear into dust... and I'm comin' to join you Elizabeth, this is the big one!
Love this guy
Love that you play alot of great Canadian artists. Proud to be Canadian. 
nice combination of coarse lead vocal with smooth back ups
if Mark Knopfler had been born an American, he'd be Harry Manx. As it is, we have the two, and I'm grateful for them both.
VERY REMINISCENT OF CHRIS REA ! IS GOOD

seen him many times and always a brilliant show. What does stand out is the show he did with Kevin Breit and an Australian keyboard player
 

 
Agreed, saw him at the Port Fairy Festival, just outside Warnambool with Kevin Breit and one other, not sure of his name, but an impressive performance.

Saw Harry again 2 months ago at a "4 songs and you're done" review for US booking agents.
He was head and shoulders above the competition, with the added bonus that he can solo, or trio depending on the venue and need.
Kudos.

Possibly my favorite song on RP. Reminds me of last year's summer stuck at the hospital, eagerly longing all day for RP to play it — had nothing else to do except waiting {#Sleep} Those minor chords and this gone-through-tubeamp-like voice both kill me.
Fred G. Sanford is one smooth singer.
Saw Harry last week in Kingston Ontario his last stop on his road east.
He did not play this song but he is a very entertaining & puts on a great show.

Check him out if he comes your way.
Man, the closest he gets to these here parts is Morgantown, WV—five hours of hard driving. And in March when a snowstorm is as likely as not. Damn. To get tickets or not to get tickets, that is the question.
I was drivin' out Wagstaff Road and I saw one of those country-hick mailbox sheds, next to a crude chainsaw carving of  Kali dancing on Shiva  (!) at the end of a long winding driveway that wound deep into the woods. On one box was  "Harry Manx" and right next to it  was "Radio Paradise." Maybe it was justa dream... This song puts me right into a state of light hypnosis/ mushroom highness with just simple sound waves... THANKS RP!
I see you have got your groove back, got weird on paradise for a bit this summer.  Still think you need to open up to some guest DJs

I heard him on a CBC radio show recently and was very surprised to learn that he spent much time in India studying under musical masters there. Very interesting fellow...
getting sick of this song....
Beautiful segue from KGB's "Call it a night"!
- All fall down, disappear in the dust... 
- WHAT? WHO IS "piridust"?? 
Nice.  :)
Smoky
reminds me of robbie and i like it !
Was extremely surprised to learn from a friend last week that "Harry Manx" used to do a silent comedy street show as "Mr. Peabody"! We were reminiscing about acts gone by when I mentioned "Mr. Peabody" and he told me he is now doing music as "Harry Manx". 
I think I like this one
Has a good feel. So far...liking much of Harry Manx.
I heard this song yesterday,and although I like it....there is too much in the RP library to play this twice in 2 days.
But then again...I'm not the DJ
Bill is the MAN!

That one hit me like a ton of bricks, and I never, ever saw it coming.  I like your sense of humor.  Thanks for the chortle this AM.
He is forcing the raspy bluesy voice. not like
But I like his instrumental tracks
First time I saw Harry Manx, he was following a famous player, who, after the gig, famously said: "Never hire an opener whois  better than you".
He was right.  
PS You've got love a man who's puns are worse/better than your own.

thanks 
 more different , harry,  please  bill.....{#Guitarist}.
I really like this song as it is, but I'd think I might like it even more as an instrumental. 
The dust, man, disappear in the dust.
very nice song

What I was thinking too-- he's like a latter-day Robbie Robertson. He did do a cover of "Long Black Veil" on "Bread And Buddha"  but it was in a sorta cheezy C&W vein.
Hey Harry,

Any tour dates scheduled for Ft Lauderdale? (no, not Miami)  Yeah, its hot here and you can swim in the humidity of South Florida but it's tolerable in Jan-Apr.
Rolph from the Muppet Show sounds pretty sweet here.
This always makes me think of "Treetop Flyer". Like the song but can't shake that connection...

This song is soooo good for the ears...
 
Harry Manx, and his mind-bending strings, have been enchanting and entrancing me regularly since I got hip to RP; dig it, 12 years now; THANKS! 

Very intriguing.

Or Somewhere Down the Crazy River - Robbie Robertson...
i'd started to put down my headphones when this came on, but put them back on to hear the whole thing. dig it.
Can't stand him anymore. Always the same color, the same "hay, yeh,yeh".

Makes two of us.
When it makes me stop what I'm doing to turn it up, I finally give it a 10. Very much want to try the whole album. Love his style.
I don't know whether to cringe or LOL at the album title. It's certainly interesting. Fine sound, though. 7 from the Nottingham jury.
Such a groovy tune!
dusk to dusk ring around the poseys all fall down remix
First time hearing this. I dig.
Harry rules the island.
