    Stumbled across this group from New Zealand. Use mandolin on almost every track.

    Hello All:

    Forgive me if I am being redundant, but I have only seen one song listed from Lynyrd Skynyrd. They have an album, 1994 Endangered Species, with some really good Mandolin on the last half.

    Came across these guys on the TV at Tillys at the mall. Turns out the mandolin player is Kate Bush's nephew.

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, eh? Not saying that Raven Bush is in the same league as Aunt Kate - not yet, but maybe some day - but interesting to learn that mandolin consciousness is continuing into the next generation of that family. It's worth noting that his father is Kate's eldest brother John, not the middle brother, Paddy, who has played mandolin (and several other instruments) on Kate's recordings over the years. Rather nicely, too.

    Good news, everybody. I recently picked up a laptop, so I am able to connect online at my day job. Since there are often long stretches of down time here, soon I will be able to apply myself to updating this list. I know -woo-hoo!

    Um, yeah ... As recently as post #268. Not meaning to single you out, but just so everyone understands - this is a pretty lengthy list, though of course not all-inclusive (still under construction and all that), but easily searchable. I suggest people posting search it first before suggesting entries. Thanks!

    That said, thanks for the heads-up about The Bangles. That's a new one.

    I searched the thread and didn't find any prior mention of Band of Horses. Nice band, and they regularly include mandolin in the acoustic portions of the show. Not sure whether they incorporate it into the more electric portions of their shows or not, but it's definitely part of their arsenal.

    Yeah, there are several bands that have come along in the last few years that use mandolin extensively. These guys, Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers, Needtobreathe, and I'm sure others I can't think of at the moment. I'm a bit stumped as to whether to include all their songs in this list, with the title specifying songs. I don't have all their albums - um, any of them - so I'm not sure how to proceed. I mean, obviously "Ho Hey" by The Lumineers needs to be on the list, but I know they don't use mandolin on all of their songs. I would really appreciate any input from anyone more familiar with the recordings by these and any other bands. Or if anyone knows an online resource that lists information like this - track-by-track instrumentation - can you imagine how much help that would be? Thanks!

    Dialed up Dr. John, The Night Tripper -"Gris-Gris" today. Heady stuff - whew! And there's mandolin all over it: "Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya Ya," "Danse Kalinda Ba Doom," "Danse Fambeaux," "Croker Courtboullion," but not, as someone had earlier posted to the list, on "I Walk On Gilded Splinters." Best of all, it's really well-played and well-utilized, credited to Richard 'Didimus' Washington and/or Ernest McLean. I read somewhere sometime that this was recorded in LA by Dr. John and a bunch of other session musicians during downtime on somebody else's sessions. And man, everybody sounds so stoooooned ...

    No. I mean, yes, of course. No, I mean no, not for much.

    Yes, of course it does. This is all about the mandolin and the music it is used to create, which is timeless and for all time.

    Split Enz didn't make much of an impression on me. 80s bands that did include Big Country (knocked me out, still a favorite, especially their album "The Crossing", on my all-time favorite list), Dexy's Midnight Runners (mostly just their album "Too-Rye-Ay"), U2 ( I think if they stick with it, they might make it big, eventually), and to a lesser extent, Squeeze - though I found out about them much later. But enough about me.

    Looking through the wiki, I see that founding members included guitarists Tim Finn and Phil Judd, and the latter played mandolin on their first two albums, "Mental Notes" (1975), and "Second Thoughts" (1976). He then left, and was replaced by Tim's brother, Neil Finn (who would go on to form Crowded House). Neil played mandolin on the third album, 'Dizrythmia" (1977). I didn't see any further mandolin credits. This song is from their seventh album, Time and Tide (1982)\, and Neil is on it, but no mandolin credit. I assume he is playing mandolin, but can't say for sure.

    As always, wikipedia is the sum of its parts, garbage in garbage out, and whoever does the input includes only so much information, that's all you get. Until someone edits it, of course. I'm not about to, because I know very little about them and would have to learn, and who has time for everything? If anyone has access to their catalogue and can verify which songs have mandolin on them (that's what this list is about), please let us know.

    That said, this is a nice enough tune. Thanks for bringing it up. No idea what kind of mandolin that is, but at least it doesn't seem to be a prop - I can hear it in s couple of places. My guess is mandolin wasn't a big part of their sound, but props to them for using it. The more, the merrier!

    I see this thread hasn't had an update in a while, but I figured I'd mention a few songs. Also, the Crash Test Dummies had a regular mandolin/harmonica player, Benjamin Darvill (now known as Son of Dave, and now a solo artist in the UK) so I'm sure there are some songs I'm forgetting or missing (just kinda scanned through a bunch to remind myself of what happens in the song).

    Crash Test Dummies - Winter Song
    Crash Test Dummies - The Country Life
    Crash Test Dummies - The Ghosts that Haunt Me
    Crash Test Dummies - Androgynous
    Crash Test Dummies - The Voyage
    Crash Test Dummies - Two Knights and Maidens (only song from their 2nd album with mando, from what I can tell)

    Indigo Girls - Closer to Fine

    10,000 Maniacs - Back O' The Moon
    10,000 Maniacs - Everyone a Puzzle Lover
    10,000 Maniacs - Lilydale

    Some of the 10,000 Maniacs songs even feature a little tremolo picking, what I tend to think of as "old timey" mandolin playing.



    I'll probably be doing YouTube lessons for the Maniacs songs at some point, if I haven't found that someone has made a good one already.

    CORRECTION: Unless I am grossly mistaken . . . 'Dance, Dance, Dance' by Steve Miller does not feature mandolin, only a bottleneck guitar played (very nicely) by John McFee, now of the Doobie Brothers.

    Check out some Jack White songs. He has played mando as well as some other band members in some songs.

    Rolling Stones - "Love in vain"
    Some guy named Ry Cooder...

    I've heard Jethro Tull do versions of "Fat Man" "Mother Goose" and "A Christmas Song" with Dave Pegg on mandolin.

    Also, "Back in the High Life" by Steve Winwood.

    ...and Paul McCartney "Dance Tonight"
    Never say "bouzouki" to a TSA agent...
