Obscure 60s and 70s Deep Tracks
I play guitar a little bit, but have been an avid rocker for over 40 years.
Always looking for that 60s 70s Obscure Deep Cut that you don't here everyday.
If you have one you want to share post it here.
I heard this one on SiriusXM on my Dish TV this weekend.
Good mix of guitar, Keys, and Vocals.

You beat me to it.

A friend just gave 5 Be-Bop Albums on CD and they are awesome. Nelson reminds me a lot of Gary Moore. Or even the other way around.

Just awesome and a player that is overlooked these days.

Bill Nelson is great. One of my all time favorite musicians! He's still putting out music. I like his solo material better than Be-Bop Deluxe.

My favorite Be-Bop album is Drastic Plastic, but most Be-Bop fans won't agree! I also liked Bill nelson's red Noise a lot.

He has a HUGE volume of work.

Wasn't Badger Jackie Lomax's band? I went to see Lomax in a club here in 1971. Had a terrific guitar player named Israel Zacuto. Prompted me to buy his "Three" album, and my band at the time did a few songs from it.

Mark Hammer 8/30/2011 2:19 PM
Not necessarily obscure if you come from Australia, but certainly overlooked on this side of the ocean. Stevie Wright - Evie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=In1Ve...eature=related

Wright was the lead singer of the Easybeats, who did the 60's classic Friday on My Mind. Written and produce by Vanda & Young, Evie is a real rarity, a three-chaptered song about a guy who falls in love, gets married, and then loses his wife in childbirth. Just one of those topics that doesn't come up all that often in moon-June-spoon lyrics. Almost a mini-rock-opera, at 11 minutes, it was rather long for commercial radio at the time, but became the longest #1 tune in history (take that, Hey Jude!). But it rocks, and it makes you cry, a claim not many songs can make.
 
Mark Hammer 8/30/2011 2:37 PM
And I can't forget Hamilton Ontario's other claim to fame besides The Kings, punk legends Teenage Head: Teenage Head - Lets Shake - YouTube
Though this song officially was released in 1980, they were named after a Flamin Groovies album from 1971 and were already playing this before 1980 (I know because I used to see the bass player from the band waiting at the bus stop outside my wife's/girlfriend's apartment in 1978). This version on Youtube seems to be a little laid back. It's one of those 3-chord nuggets like the Romantics "What I like about You".

Here's Two Versions of the Same Song "Outside Woman Blues" by Cream.
The first one was on the Disraeli Gear's Album in 1967
I really like it best, I love the Woman Tone That Clapton gets with the SG he played in Early Cream
The Second Version was when they did a Reunion Performance Live at the Royal Albert Hall in 2005.
Its good also but I like the Original best.

Always liked that tune. Saw GFR do it at an indoor festival in 1970, though by that point in the show Farner had abandoned the vest. The guitar is, of course, a Messenger, which Eastwood has resurrected in their seeming never-ending quest to reproduce arcane oddball guitars of the 60's.

Oh, and don't forget the fuzz box that he had inside. He would reach over and flip the toggle switch for it right before the "over the top" & "gross" distortion for the solos....

Mark Hammer 9/22/2011 1:01 PM
Fair point. I have absolutely no idea what sort of effort Eastwood makes to reproduce the pickups used in their repros. I was also unaware of the onboard fuzz. In fairness, Eastwood doesn't make strong claims of accurately reproducing out-of-production instruments. They aim for cosmetic repros, and if the general build features nail a particular vibe, so much the better. Note that the neck on the Eastwood is maple not aluminum, and there is a heel to it.

I remember a local store had a Messenger at the time, but I was ignorant enough in those days to not count off the frets and think "How the hell did they get a neck to be stable if it was joined up that high?". I just looked at it, thought that it was weird he'd be playing a guitar that lacked a cutaway, and thought nothing more of it.

I went to see her in 1970, I think, with the Full Tilt Boogie Band, at the Montreal Forum. James Cotton opened, and they had your basic S.F. light show with pulsating oil-and-water blobs. She must have played "Try" for about 20 minutes. The original "Cry Baby" by Garnet Mimms is pretty damn fine, but Janis does it justice too.

Speaking of obscure bands, here’s a live-in-the-studio cut from Patto’s “Roll ‘Em, Smoke ‘Em, Put Another Line Out” album:

Loud Green Song - Patto - YouTube

The guitarist, Ollie Halsall, had been playing all of 4 years when he did this insane solo, playing a three-pickup SG Custom through a cranked Princeton Reverb. (For those of you who know about Eric Idle’s mock-rockumentary about the Rutles, aka the “Pre-Fab Four”, Ollie plays most of the guitar and bass and some of the keyboard parts on the Rutles songs, and Patto’s drummer, John Halsey, plays the Rutles drummer Barry Wom.)
 
Mark Hammer 10/2/2011 11:51 AM
When you mentioned The Rutles, that grabbed my attention. Big fan of them I had seen Patto's discs in delete bins over the years, but never really heard anything by them. Halsall's playing, and tone, on that tune are particularly wicked; right up there with the solo on Crossroads from Wheels of Fire, in terms of reckless abandon. Thanks. I much enjoyed that. Here's a great Rutles concert from a couple years ago: http://www.archive.org/serve/Rutles2...nchesterUK.wma

The Move's original version of a tune made over many times: The Move - Do Ya (Studio Take) - YouTube

Big fan of singer Terry Reid. He was originally slated to be the singer for Led Zeppelin but turned the gig down. This track amply demonstrates why he was on the short list: Terry Reid - I Put A Spell On You (Fillmore West - 1968) - YouTube His cover of the soul ballad classic "Stay with me, baby" (that most people will know from Bette Midler's rendering in "the Rose") is also pretty powerful: Stay with me baby - Terry Reid - YouTube He's still gigging around these days, and his pipes are what Rod Stewart wishes he still had. His rendition of the Four Seasons tune "Rag Doll" with Waddy Wachtel's house band is quite credible and adds new life to the tune: Waddy Wachtel Bernard Fowler & Terry Reid The Joint Rag Doll - YouTube When you consider its almost 40 years between this and the earlier tunes I linked to, I think he's held up pretty well

Obscure in this thread is any Song by anyone in the 60s,or 70s, that wasn't necessarily a big hit, or gets constant Air Play!
Some of Hendrix stuff didn't get a lot of air play, Then or Now.

Levon Helm... My last name is "Helms" So reading your post Big Teee I thought for a moment that possibly that man could be my real Dad or Uncle or Grandpa!! lol.
Now he is up there jamming away w/ the other half of "the band."

So many artists from the past really make the music scene today look pathetic. Makes me realize how important it is to remember how great they really were and to see them go. Now when will we be so lucky to see Lady Gaga or Justin Beiber go!!! That's a total reversal of that meaning though, lol.

So in tribute to Levon, I too wish to post a great song by the band. This is the performance I saw that made me fall in love w/ "The Band." I bet Levon is up there right now singing backups w/ Rick Danko for Richard Manuels I Shall be released. Well Bob Dylans song but Richard owns it here....!

I've loved that album since it was first released. Jeff B was pretty annoyed when the first Led Zeppelin album came out: he thought (rightly) that it was a blatant ripoff of his album "Truth," to the point of even repeating a couple of the same songs.

I know it's not a competition, but if it were, tedmich would be winning. That's some obscure stuff, there.

Here's a jolly live performance by Focus of their one hit:



Found that clip when I was looking around for bands that used Fender Super Showman amps, the only decent solid-state Fenders from the late '60s. Jan Akkerman sounds pretty good through his two Super Showmans.

Enzo 7/24/2012 3:32 AM
Wow. for some reason, I hadn't read this thread until just now. Man oh man. I was a disk jockey in the 1966-1968 era and some after that. Was on-air personality as well as "king of the patch panel" in the production studio. Then got into live music in the late 1960s and into the 70s. So many dim memories this is stirring up.

I know some of these references are from year old posts but...

I LOVE Poke Salad Annie, TJ White, and for that matter I always liked Niki Hoeky by PJ Proby

And how can I not like Jerry Reed. His Amos Moses comes to mind.

I had all Captain Beefheart's LPs. Still do I suppose. Bizarre stuff. LSD helps understand it a lot.

Had all the 13th floor Elevators LPs too. Your gonna miss me, yes!

Another later Texas band, Bubble Puppy, had Hot Smoke and Sassafras, always liked that.

Jessie Ed Davis, I liked him. FUn to hear his guitar coming through a Leslie. he played with Taj Mahal among others.

I like Jeff beck, but for me the albums Wired and Blow by Blow are my faves.

Leslie West? Good honest rock and roll. You couldn;t be a bar band and not play Mississippi Queen, I don;t think.


Season of the Witch is an all time favorite, I still pick up the guitar and noodle that for an hour. The long Bloomfield version was great, the Donovan one was too, but my fave was Julie Driscoll singing it with Brian Auger and the Trinity.

DOnovan's Hurdy Gurdy man always hits me right.

A 60s/70s band I really liked was Love with Arthur Lee. Solid band, three guitars. They had a range of styles. They did a cover of Hey Joe I liked, then again so did a thousand other bands, including of course Jimi.


I was on the radio when some one handed me this new album by something called the Jimi Hendrix Experience. OK, I'll check out anything and... WHOA!!! WHAT IS THIS???!!!??? I didn;t know what to call it, but i sure liked it. Pysch a freaking delic, man. I liked everything on it, I wore out copies of it. Back then, records came in mono, unless you wanted to pay an extra dollar to get the stereo version. An extra dollar when an album was $3 is a large increase. Some of the tracks were different on the stereo issue. Same songs, different takes/mixes. Couldn;t get enough of Jimi.

That different mix thing happened on the Beatles Sgt Pepper LP. A couple tracks were different mixes on the mono version.

Now a REAL 1960s band... The Chocolate Watchband. Total psychedelic jams.

Liked an obscure band called Family with Rick Grech and others.

From the bar band era, we just couldn;t miss with Sly and the Family Stone - Wanna take you Higher

And - I Don't Need No Doctor by Humble pie gives me goosebumps live.

Love the One You're With - Stephen Stills


And I never ever want to hear Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum again. Not ever. YUK.
 
tedmich 7/24/2012 9:12 AM
whoa Enzo! You started out RIGHT! A common thread in all your detailed, systematic posts about fixing music-making electronics (along with a flawless command of the experimental method) is an unabiding love of the music they produce. I always knew you were not only endlessly good-hearted and helpful but also motivated by the joy of music! Now it all makes sense!

Have you ever heard Billy Gibbons first band's (Moving Sidewalks) album FLASH?

 
Enzo 7/24/2012 6:53 PM
No, but first time I ever heard LaGrange by ZZ Top, my first thought was how it reminded me of old Savoy Brown tunes.


Gimme some Lovin' by Spencer Davis Group featuring a VERY young Stevie Winwood. Great bar tune.

Devil with a Blue Dress On. Mitch Ryder.


Don't Fear the Reaper, and Godzilla, both by Blue Oyster Cult.

Jefferson Airplane. First album, before Grace Slick, singer was Signe Anderson, who I think went on to be a school teacher.

Moby Grape.

Oh far out. I have been trying for years to remember an album I used to really like. It had a long track on one side that was of the progresive rock type. Long involved complex thing. I managed to FIND it! The band was Touch, and they made one album by the same name. The song I liked was Seventy Five

Seventy Five-Touch-Touch(1969) - YouTube

It was maybe a bit long and self indulgent a jam track, but hey... get high and turn it up and we loved it.

Interesting history on them as well.

How about a band that's new in comparison but sounds like it could be a classic band? Jellyfish!

I think Jellyfish is one of my favorite bands EVER. After working in the music industry a bit I have huge respect for what they did, even if their timing was terrible and grunge took over the world as Spilt Milk came out. It's one of my "Desert Island" albums. I told my family that if I die prematurely they're to play "Russian Hill" at my funeral.

Pretty scary...



yeah, I checked first to make sure none of my later references sneaked into the 1980s.



In 1973 I went touring with a band from St Louis called Stanley Steamer. They were w good group, pretty girl out front, horn section. had an album. 10 years later I found the album in the cutout bin at a radio Shack store. I bought it for 50 cents.

Your list yesterday of "more complex stuff" - that's what I used to listen to in high school.
Well, not so much ELP- but all the jazz-rock fusion stuff.

I'm at a marked disadvantage- as I have no idea what qualifies as "obscure". I grew up in a sparsely populated area, and never had the opportunity to share recorded music with peers. The nearest store with a half-decent record selection was a Two Guys department store about 20 miles away. Figuring it was a waste of money to buy music I could hear on the radio, I'd go to TGs and buy LPs of folks I'd never heard of. I once stumbled on the double album "McKinley Morganfield AKA Muddy Waters"- having no idea who Muddy Waters was!

Here's 2 tunes from the Larry Corryell / John McLaughlin collaboration "Spaces". I literally wore out this LP.
I had read about Django & the Hot Club- but never heard his recordings- so I had no reference when I heard this cut. Compared to what I had heard on mainstream radio, this sounded to me like acoustic music from outer space. Larry Coryell - Spaces - -Rene's Theme-. - YouTube
This was probably the biggest "hit" from the same album Larry Coryell - Spaces (infinite) - YouTube

I accidently found Chuck Mangione long before "Feels So Good". Really liked his funky rhythm section & sax player.
Chuck Mangione Quartet - High Heel Sneakers - YouTube
He really milked this tune- recorded a gazillion versions. But it's still a pretty nice composition Chuck Mangione Quartet - Land Of Make Believe - YouTube

I guess everyone's heard it, but this quirky Leo Kottke number still makes me smile Leo Kottke - Monkey Lust - YouTube

Take care,

I was always a sucker for a band with a horn section- preferably, with a funky rhythm section and a blatting Bari sax.
And a pretty girl out front never hurt.

Sorry for the deluge of posts; blame Enzo for triggering memories of HS & college.

I think Malo (with Carlos Santana's brother Jorge on guitar) was big on the West coast, but not so much in the East (or maybe only in Hispanic communities?). I had their 1st two albums. Their biggest hit "Suavecito" has got to be among the greatest make-out songs recorded (preferably accompanied by home-made sangria). REALLY saccharine, but I like how the instrumental parts fit together in the album mix.

It's cool. I shouldn't have posted such a new song.

Maybe I will start a new thread- "new bands that sound old but with a certain amount of conviction"

My best friend is an engineer in Nashville and when I still lived there I found that musicians tend to have deeper musical roots and more interest in musicianship as an art. They're not impressed by most big pop stuff unless it's purely due to musicianship. I miss that about living in Nashville. It seems many people in the Philadelphia area will listen to whatever pop music they hear.

T&W had some popularity in the 1970s, they played behind Bob Seger part of the time. Our band played at one of those all day concert fests on the lake Michigan shore. Like a dozen bands or more. We were on like 1PM or thereabouts. Later on, Bob Seger was the main act. T&W played their set, then stayed on stage when Seger played.

I have to say, Bob Seger was the coolest guy. He was there all day walking around and watching the other bands. I was running sound, and the other roadie and I were sitting on the deck of our equipment truck after our set. We had a pretty talented guitarist who was Jimi Hendrix in his own mind. Seger walked over to us and chatted a while, complimented our guitarist with "Man I wish I could play like that." The roadie and I were having a little nip of corn whiskey, and offered Seger some. He actually accepted a swig of our whiskey. I couldn;t believe it. No big star attitude, just a regular guy. I liked him. He spent maybe 25 minutes just hanging out with the two of us crew.

SO a little of that impression rubbed off on T&W in my memory.

It's a nice little punchy intrumental. It was my favorite on the radio show. It is exactly 2 minutes long, easy to back-time. If you want to have a song end right on the hour for example to lead up to the newscast, you note the time of it and start the record with that much time left, but leave it off in the mix. Then when whatever else you had going ends, you can bring it up, talk over it, and it will end BAM right on the nose. This one has that nice clean end.

Plus I used it in production as background music. Nice high energy tune going along, and I had also recorded just that Bop-Baaa- BaDop ending. I could record whatever announcement over the body of the song and trigger the ending whenever I wanted.

Mark Hammer 8/13/2012 9:15 AM
During the late 60's and early 70's I was infatuated with a Quebec band /cult/collective called L'Infonie. They ranged from 9 to 22 pieces, depending on when you saw them, but were brass-focussed, despite often having two drumemrs and two bass players. I had the good fortune to first see them at a couple of free concerts where they were around 15-17 pieces. Mostly highly-seasoned musicians who either taught in university jazz programs, or did studio work around Montreal, they had an expansive repertoire, that could take them from Telemann and Bach concertos (arranged for saxophone) to Don Ellis to Frank Sinatra to Terry Riley and stuff very similar to the Mothers of Invention.

Led by Quebec dadaist poet Raoul Dugauy and bandleader Walter Boudreau, their shows were highly theatrical, and the stuff of legend. They would perform composer Terry Riley's modular trance/minimalist piece "In C" ( In C by Terry Riley - original recording - Part 1 - YouTube ) for 20+ minutes while traipsing through the audience and distributing sparklers, with the light show blazing away. At one show I saw them do, one of the drummers came on stage in a gorilla mask, and tutu, on roller skates, with a parasol, and crooned Jacques Brel's "Ne me quitte pas", which most will know as the dramatic English-lyric tune "If you go away". At another, the band came out, starting tuning up, only to discover the concert piano provided was a mess and malfunctioning. The bandleader apologized to the crowd and said, with regret, that they could not perform under these conditions. The band exitted and the lights dimmed. While the crowd was murmuring and getting restless, the same drummer came out, at first as a dim silhouette, but eventually making himself visible in a grease-stained mechanic's jumpsuit, after he hooked up a mechanic's light (of the sort you hook to the car hood to work on the engine) and started pulling stuff out of the piano (a teddy bear, a spanner, etc.). Once the piano had been emptied of things, he sat down at the keyboard and stepped on the sustain pedal, whereupon the guy in the sound booth played some sound effects of a car revving up. Once satisfied that the "engine" was in running order, he traipsed offstage and the band finally came back on again.

Like I say, theatrical. Here are two pieces.

L&#39;Infonie - Viens danser le &#39;OK Là!&#39; (1969) - YouTube
L&#39;infonie "Section 1-17" 1972 - YouTube

While on the topic of Quebec music, there was an entire culture that was virtually ignored by most of the rest of English-speaking North America.

Here we have legendary, and much-loved blues-rock band Offenbach, the singer of which had a biographical film of him set box-office records in Quebec last year.: offenbach-caline de blues - YouTube

Robert Charlebois was one of the first Quebec singers/songwriters to use colloquial French in his lyrics, something considered rather revolutionary at the time. These days he could serve as stunt double for actor John C. Reilly; same nose and face. I saw him at a festival in 1970, where he came after The Byrds, Grand Funk, and the Amboy Dukes. Here's one of his best known tunes: Lindberg - Robert Charlebois - 1968 - YouTube

Quebec was a very hip place in those days, and for reasons that nobody quite understands (though it may have been the general openness to anything with organ in it), VERY open to British and European prog rock. When Yes, Genesis, and Gentle Giant couldn't get arrested elsewhere in North America, they were doing tours of Quebec.

That reminds me of a NY metro area collective called Ice Nine (in reference to the "secret weapon" in Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle). They once held a nonstop weekend-long concert at Rutgers, with various members wandering on and off stage throughout the event.

Mark Hammer 8/14/2012 8:10 PM
In 1970, I attended an indoor festival at the Montreal Forum, and it seemed like about half the acts there were Motor City or Michigan bands: Grand Funk, Frost, Frigid Pink, Amboy Dukes.

Don't forget the Stooges, bro! And Mitch Ryder. His string of hits still hold up as rockem sockem greats: Little Latin Lupe Lu, Devil With the Dress On, Jenny Take a Ride, Too Many Fish, Sock it To Me Baby, et al. And Cactus, and Bob Seger and Rare Earth. And that's just the rock acts.
 
Enzo 8/14/2012 9:02 PM
I put Blue Dress up earlier. Mitch Ryder rocks.


Funny you should mention Rare Earth. They are still from this area, and in fact are occasional customers. Bird, the bass player, lives in town, and he also watches after their gear. When they go out on tour or dates, he brings me some amps for a checkout or some other gear. ANyway, a while back, he came by the shop and asked me, "Dude, are you a hat or a T-shirt guy?" Hat, says I. SO he ran out to the truck and came back with a Rare Earth hat, which I am wearing at this very moment. I wear it everywhere. Bird is a trip, he comes in "Dude, we're going to Germany!" Or japan, or all over.

As the SUnliners, they used to play Lansing clubs.

The wiki says that Don Messer was a native New Brunswicker. And of course, the reason the band was called The Islanders is because they were based in Prince Edward Island. The show may have been broadcast from Halifax, but that was often the only Nova Scotian thing about it. I used to watch him every Friday night at 8PM, about as regularly as I watched Ed Sullivan on Sundays. Have a double album of his hits, fer cryin' out loud!

Hah, I knew I could draw out some one who knows his geography! For me, New Brunswick is a city in New Jersey.
Anyways, I did say "music from Nova Scotia TV". Thanks for the "slightly more modern" Quebecois music.

Here in Michigan we had the Grand Trunk Railway, a division of Canadian National railway, which of course the Grand Funk name is a play on. All over there are railroad bridges, overpasses, and all the GT ones had "GRAND TRUNK" painted on them. I think pretty much every single one of them had the T painted over and the R partly painted out so all the bridges then said "GRAND FUNK."

Happy Kyne, the ever dour band leader of the Mirth Makers, was played by Frank De Vol who had a lengthy and illustrious career scoring movies and TV shows: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_De_Vol Though we're familiar with De Vol and tedesco, I imagine the other Mirth Makers were probably hip in-demand session cats as well.

Great tune. Hadn't heard it in ages, but it felt just like yesterday listening to it. Thanks!

Striking out in a different direction, I was a big fan of the Fugs during the 60's and 70's. Though often lumped together with the Mothers of Invention for their willingness to cross the line, they were a fundamentally different kind of beast, emerging from the spoken word tradition, rather than the doo-wop/musique-concrète tradition.

For a while they had the dual guitar lineup of Danny Kortchmar and Kenny Pine, Kortchmar eventually moving onto the studio collaborations Jo Mama and The Section, the So-Cal singer-songwriter backup-band circuit, and eventually producer. Pine always had a great tone on their recordings, and had some of my favourite solos of that era, if only for their "apoplectic elasticity".

here's one: The Fugs - Crystal Liaison - YouTube
here's another: The Garden Is Open - Fugs - YouTube

Hard to grasp that Fugs co-leader/founder Tuli Kupferberg has been dead now for over 2 years, having lived into his mid-80's. One of the great rascals, right to the end.
 
Mark Hammer 11/20/2012 2:48 PM
I can't seem to find anything to link to, musically, at the moment, but reminiscing about the Fugs also got me thinking about another New York treasure from that era: Bunky and Jake. I had (and maybe still do, they're all packed up) an album by them. Hadn't realized until I looked them up on wikipedia, that none other than the cigar-chomper himself, Mike Matthews, played on it.

Mark Hammer 11/21/2012 8:53 PM
I've got Little Black Egg in my box 'o singles downstairs. Always did like the Syndicate of Sound single too, especially the little giggle in it.

There was a whole bunch of proto-punk bands that were sort of Stones-inspired in terms of their "edge", but not overtly R&B-based as the early Stones were. So here I'm thinking of not only Syndicate of Sound, but The Seeds, The Standells, some of Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Sonics. In Canada, we had The Haunted, The Rabble, The Ugly Ducklings, and The Mandala, among many others.

You'll forgive me if I have mentioned them already (this IS a rather long thread), but there was a really interesting band out of NY/New Jersey called The Insect Trust that recorded two albums in 69-70, and had an interesting group of people in the group, including noted rock critic Robert Palmer: The Insect Trust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Their second album involved avant guard "composer" Moondog. An intriguing blend of folk, folk blues, and bleating free-form jazz.

The Insect Trust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I was also a big fan of anything Danny Kortchmar was involved in. He and Steve Cropper pretty much wrote the book on Tele rhythm guitar. One of his bands was Jo Mama, that produced a couple albums of admittedly light, bluesy jazz/pop. I can't begin to tell you how long I practiced to nail the opening rhythm guitar part on this tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTr0zjyIVJk

Finally, a singer songwrter who should have been absolutely huge, a monster, but only recorded two albums and just faded into drug-addled obscurity and death, is Judee Sill. There are two progenitors of all the breathy female singers we have come to know in the last 30 years. One is Laura Nyro, and the other is Judee Sill. Without either of these, we would not have much of Joni Mitchell's catalog, Jane Siberry, Sheryl Crow, or Sarah Mclachlan, and many others. The songs, the singing, and the production on her 2nd album Heart Food just leave me weak-kneed every time.

A co-worker was watching a PBS special on David Geffen last night, and apparently Geffen had it in his plans to make Laura Nyro a big name (feeding her tunes to Three Dog Night for greater exposure), and felt betrayed when she signed with Columbia rather than Asylum. Who he did get was Sill.

Admittedly, this will seem like "girly pap" to some of the harder-rockin' types here, but it is still brilliant and undeservedly obscure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdnQ...eature=related

Thanks for posting that! Everybody knows about Peter Green's Les Paul with the neck pickup upside down but he used other guitars quite often for recordings- an ES335 and a strat were mentioned a lot. (If you got the 1999 remasters of their recordings for Blue Horizon there were 7 different versions of this song- one where the solo keeps going and going for a total length of 6 minutes and 18 seconds.)

BTW that 6 CD set was mixed blessing- the remasters were top notch A+++ but they included all sorts of false starts and studio chatter ("oh wow- we get to hear a 20 year old kid use the f-word!"***) and were guilty of the cardinal sin of resequencing the original albums. (I think that the original order of the songs should be used with the alternate versions and unreleased tracks after that. If you are using the original album name and cover nothing less will do! )

In January 2007 I spent about 10 days redoing the remastered set, recreating the original fade-ins and fade-outs and the original order with the new material after that. I even came up a fake remastered reissue of the US-only "English Rose" which was better than the Japanese reissue of that (one of the channels was missing on some of the tracks- or something like that- I'd have to look up the exact details.)

Steve Ahola

*** When Sonny Boy Williamson was cussing out Leonard Chess on the unedited version of "Little Village" that was really cool! Such enthusiasm!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Y-612X7g8&t=0m56s

If anybody actually listens to all 12 minutes and 5 seconds you deserve an award- it is terrible! A really stupid song not played very well- I think that Sonny Boy was tugging on Leonard Chess's chain. That song was the inspiration for the band "Little Village" formed by Ry Cooder, John Hyatt, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner in 1991 (they had all played on Hyatt's "Bring The Family" album in 1987.) Although most people were not crazy about the one album they released they sounded great on the live recordings I have heard.
 
Mark Hammer 12/11/2012 11:42 AM
I was briefly working as an album reviewer in 1970 and was given the Chess compilation with the picture accompanying that "video". Always loved Sonny Boy's exasperation: "You can name it after your mammy if you want". Happily, though containing some false starts, that version on record is less than 12 minutes. It partly inspired me to pick up the "Little Village" CD, where John Hiatt touts the virtues of his bald pate as a "Solar Sex Panel".

For some reason, the "Rural Juror" running gag on 30 Rock (where those interested in knowing the name of the supposed film still can't make out what it is, even when someone tells them, because it is so hard to parse into words) always reminded of the off-line intro to the tune.

"Psychotic Reaction" from 1966 by Count Five out of San Jose. The guitarist is obviously copying the Yardbirds hit "I'm A Man." (Trivia question: On the Yardbirds record was it Jeff Beck or Chris Dreja who was doing the chicken scratching? I had always assumed that it was Jeff Beck but Chris Dreja did some strange shit, too.)

P.S. For those of you keeping track this year is the 47th anniversary of 1966, the most important year in the history of music!
 
Steve A. 3/9/2013 12:35 PM
The word "psychotic" brings to mind Roky Erickson of The 13th Floor Elevators big hit (only hit?), "You're Gonna Miss Me."



Trivia question: The 13th Floor Elevators recorded an album backing up a famous blues artist from Texas. Who was that blues artist?

Steve Ahola

Answer: Lightnin' Hopkins recorded "Free Form Patterns" in 1968 with the 13th Floor Elevators backing him up. Here is a link to one of the songs:

LIGHTNIN' HOPKINS - "Baby Child" - YouTube

That is probably my all-time least favorite Lightnin' Hopkins tune ever recorded. Why pair him with a crappy garage rock band when he practically invented rock'n'roll single-handedly? [Editors note: citation needed] His Herald recordings from 1954 had him rocking out on electric guitar backed with just a drummer:

Just one more, this one's from 1965: "She's A Mover" by the Sir Douglas Quintet who were shown in silhouette on their first album cover to disguise the factor that some members of the band were Hispanic. Their name and attire were supposed to make you think that they were British.

Trivia question: What famous American singer/songwriter cited the Sir Douglas Quintet as his favorite band in a newspaper interview in 1965?




Trivia Answer: Bob Dylan. I cut out the Oakland Tribune interview from 1965 where he said that but somehow lost it over the years. I was sure that he was putting us on as I thought that he always did in interviews back then but apparently he was serious as he went on to co-produce Doug Sahm's debut album on Atlantic in 1973 singing on 3 of the songs and writing one of them, Wallflower.

Wow! I just found a quote from a 1965 interview:

Bob Dylan interview 1965 - At the San Francisco Press
Conference broadcast live on on KQED-TV Dec. 3, 1965, a reporter
asks, "Are there any young folksingers that you recommend we
hear?" and Dylan replies, "I'm glad you asked that...Oh yeah,
there's the Sir Douglas Quintet. I think are probably the best
that are going to have a chance to reach the commercial
airwaves. They already have with a couple of songs."

Bob Dylan Who's Who

Other videos I would have posted had I not reached my daily limit:

The Seeds: "Pushin' Too Hard"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNZwCNSSWlI

Notice how the cameraman focuses on the singer/bass player Sky Saxon during both the keyboard and guitar solos (as was very common back then!)

The Sonics: "The Witch" (1964)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goe2fpeHYLk

This song from the was played on the Stockton and Sacramento radio stations but never made it to the Bay Area. The local cultures were very different back then, almost like a time warp. For some reason I remembered this song as being very cutting edge but it was like they were a nasty boy version of Paul Revere and the Raiders.

Speaking of Paul Revere and the Raiders I thought that "Steppin' Out" was pretty hard core (although not very obscure):

Cool Steve,
I was just thinking of posting Talk Talk to this thread but I found your post when I opened the thread. Shortly after Talk Talk became a local Southern California hit the Music Machine played a big dance in our town. You can't tell from the video but, in addition to the one black glove trademark, they also had black grill cloth retrofitted to their Fender piggyback amp line. We immediately started doing the same to our amps. I still have a big roll of black grill cloth.

As for the singles in that series Love released the 3rd one and The Doors released the 11th one ("Break On Through"/"End Of The Night".) As a matter of fact I heard their first LP in art class when "Break On Through" was the big hit down in LA ("Light My Fire" was just an album track that was way too long and boring until chopped down and released as a single in April 1967.)

The first 49 LPs in the 4000 series was a rather eclectic collection.

I posted some Love tunes earlier. I have all their LPs. I always liked their stuff.

They wanted to pump up Muddy Waters back when so they came out with Electric Mud, psychedelic stuff. From that LP:

I hear you about obscure versus top 40, but for those of us who did not live through that era, this music is 30-50 years old, and what was top 40 then, by this time most of it is never played. Hell there are plenty of kids who wondered why Aerosmith did a version of that Run-DMC tune: Walk This Way. SO what was once on the air every 20 minutes, by this time isn't even on the oldies rotation of the golden oldies station. That kinda makes it obscure. Sorta.

Yep, that's a good one. I beat you to it, post 25 over in the jam bands, but that's OK.

I used to use this tune in my production work when I was on the radio. Nice energetic punchy tune, easy to come in and out of.

Good point! If it never made it to the oldies rotation over the past 15 or 20 years then it would be obscure to the young whippersnappers out there. (I was thinking only of us old farts.)

When it came out I thought that was Muddy Waters playing all of that psychedelic guitar (I believe it was Phil Upchurch) and the picture of Muddy in the inside of the album cover was priceless. The follow-up to that- After The Rains- was more musical to my ears. They did the same treatment to Howlin' Wolf. "This is Howlin' Wolf's new album. He doesn't like it." brazened across the album cover. One of their cross-over experiments that worked out really well was the Howlin' Wolf London Album.

Oh indeed I agree the photo spread inside the Electric Mud album (Muddy getting a fancy hair-do) is priceless.

I was never a fan of the Mamas and Papas, I liked grittier music rather than pretty music. But my radio show was irreverent, and we did a lot of fake stuff. AT the time, there were a ton of drag strip commercials on the radio. You know, the cliche "SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY" announcer yelling while music crunched in the background. So we decided they needed an ad for the drag strip to run on the easy listening stations. SO we took the tune of Monday Monday and sang different lyrics. I only recall part of it...

SUnday, Sunday
Fuel Double-A
Nitro-methane
Fuel burning grudge match
All the waaay

There'll be the ti-yers burning rubber
In the quarter miiiile
ANd there'll be prizes and some trophies after while...

That dreamy sound he gets, I agree.
I was trying to figure where he had the pickup selector switch, and what effects he is using on that?? WTF?
Maybe Position 2 which is bridge and middle?

Soul Finger is one of THE great soul instrumentals.

In the late 1960's I saw a show with the Who as headliners and the Troggs and the Boxtops as openers. Along with their various familiar hits (The Letter, Soul Deep, Sweet Cream Ladies), the Boxtops covered Soulfinger, and Alex Chilton did the horn parts on blues harp with a wonderful overdriven tone. It was absolutely riveting, and funky beyond your imagination. It was only much later that I came to be aware of the deep connection between Chilton and Memphis.

We had that whole "British Invasion" about 1963, when all of a sudden all these bands from the came along over here. The Beatles of course were the big act ultimately, but at first it wasnl't such a sure bet. The Dave Clark Five were pretty popular too, with a string of hits, and radio stations would have call ins asking who was going to be the most popular the longest, the Beatles or the DC5?

Yes! Elmore James rocks. Here is a recording of "The Sky Is Crying" from later in his career when he was putting out singles on Fire and Enjoy out of NYC in the early 60's. A lot more refined than his early sessions but IMO every bit as powerful. (And that reverb is to die for!)



Here is "Cry For Me" which he recorded for Chief Records in 1957 with Eddie Taylor and Syl Johnson on guitars:
Elmore James - Cry for me Baby - YouTube

"Canton Mississippi Breakdown" was one of my favorite Elmore James tunes, recorded in 1954 but not released until 1969. It turns out that it was Ike Turner was playing the guitar on that number.
Elmore James - Canton Mississippi Breakdown - YouTube

Another one from his Fire/Enjoy days- "Rollin' and Tumblin'" (Interesting punk/blues guitar solo)
Elmore James - Rollin' and Tumblin' - YouTube

In 1960 Elmore James tracks were released on Fire, Chief, Kent, Mercury, Vee Jay, Crown and Chess (I guess they weren't big on recording contracts back then for blues artists.) Here is "I Can't Hold Out" on Chess Records.
ELMORE JAMES I cant Hold OUT .flv - YouTube

"One Way Out" on Fire Records:
ELMORE JAMES One Way Out - YouTube

"Done Somebody Wrong" on Fire Records:

Thanks for reminding me about Elmore James! A lot of people only think of his riff on "Dust My Broom" as though he was a one-hit wonder but he was a lot deeper than that.

Dave Davies of the Kinks, who knew Dave Clark from the days that both bands were starting out, said that as a drummer, Dave Clark was a great businessman.

The first 3 notes of the solo at the end are among the three greatest notes ever played. Mick Ronson earned my undying respect for the manner in which he was able to create so much drama in a solo so quickly and efficiently. The only other solo I can compare it to for efficiency is that on the Yardbirds' "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago", but it takes more notes to do it.

 
Mark Hammer 4/28/2013 7:22 PM
Speaking of compact efficient solos, this one from Jeff Beck is, for me, one of the all-time greatest solos. He manages to build all the requisite emotion, without disrupting or distracting from the song, in a matter of mere seconds. Listen to the obvious Les Paul reference at the end. Begins around 1:50.

(EDIT: Inserted the wrong video, yesterday, before leaving the house in a hurry. Here's the right one.)

Just a thought that I should post a couple songs that are obscure by the Doors. In the name of Ray Manzarek passing away on May 20th of this year... Probably one of the most ingenious artists from this time period, and there were so many. Something made me really sad when I read of his passing at the age of 74. Just a reminder that these older days of great music are really gone even more now. So, just want to remember how different the Doors were... How they could have a hit single but still many songs were so obscure that it gives true meaning to the title of this very thread I am posting on. Ray was a the guy that made the doors happen... Sure Jim was the Shaman... Robby was the soother... John was the backbone... Without Ray this band would have never ever happened in the way that it did. We owe him our respect for being the visionary that made this band possible. He was the navigator...

There was a Doors concert from 1966 on the Sugarmegs website, that was recorded in a high school gym in Danbury, Connecticut. Not sure if the concert file is still posted, but it was the funniest thing to hear the school principal annouce that "We have some special visiors here today, boys and girls, so I want you to be on your best behaviour...". Gotta see if I can dig that one up again.

I am downloading this from DIME as we speak. Being a recording from the PA System the only drums are what bled through into the mikes. In a case like this if we also had an audience recording the two could be matrixed together...

>>> [PA System Recording]

Master 7" Reel (3.75 ips) > Reel To Reel > DAT(2) > CDR > EAC > WAV > Flac Frontend > FLAC (lvl 8, SBE aligned)

Here it is as promised. Provided by Doors collector and fellow Traders' Denizen Christophe is a first generation recording of The Doors' appearance at Danbury High in 1967. Contrary to popular belief, this show wasn't put on for or by the high school, but by Western Connecticut State College as an opening to their Fall Weekend. Much of the crowd is actually made up of college students and Danbury residents. (Thanks to Greg Shaw's book for that info.)

Unlike other circulating sources, there is very little tape hiss present on this version. There are also no cuts during "Break On Through" -- though there is still a missing verse during "Moonlight Drive" which seems to be on all known copies. "The End" is complete along with Jim's introduction.

Here's some info from the person Christophe got his copy from:

"The master reel was made by a faculty member at Danbury High School (at the time) who ended up teaching at Wesleyen University in the early 1980s. A student there, who I've long since lost touch with, borrowed the master reel and I made a reel copy of that in the early '80s. The master was a 7" 3.75 ips reel and my reel copy was the same. A metal cassette with Dolby B was made from my reel (as well as an XL2 cassette for my friend ) and I'm fairly sure most circulating copies are from those cassettes which would be 2nd generation from the master. I made many copies of my cassette for various people over the years because my Revox was packed away in storage. A few years ago, my original reel copy was finally transfered to DAT and CD and I have traded that a few times since so a digital copy of the first gen reel is also now circulating."

Despite its first generation origins, there are still some problems with the recording. First, while The Doors were setting up, Jim's friend Tom Baker did a poetry reading (perhaps as much as 25 minutes worth) and this reading is said to be on the original master. In fact, it's Baker's voice you hear at the start of "Moonlight Drive" introducing the band. Also, throughout the show, there are some amplification issues and different parts come through louder/clearer than others. These may be problems present on the original master tape or on the reel to reel copy. "Break On Through" has the most issues as there were dropouts which were fixed by the person who transferred the tape by copying over the intact channel. I tried matching up the audio channels where there was an obvious difference in amplification (only two or three spots) and also ran the tape through ClickRepair (on a low setting of 50 with DeCrackle off) to remove some clicks and pops which were present during the quietest portions -- most audibly between "Light My Fire" and "The End." No noise reduction or other "remastering" was applied to this recording.

All in all, this is the best sounding source for this show I've ever heard and unlike many other copies it even appears to run at the correct speed. So enjoy this great upgrade.

Music was very diverse then, there was a little of everything going on.
From Jazz, Perry Como, Elvis, to Folk Music, to Jefferson Airplane, the Doors, Rolling Stones, and Don't forget the Beatles!

Peace and Tone.
Perry Como? I don't remember him having any hits out here back then, but Frank Sinatra had a few. It's a real trip looking at the singles charts from back then, both the US and the UK.

Where I lived we got both the SF AM radio stations and the Stockton/Sacramento AM radio stations and their playlists were quite different. Stockton/Sacramento was like Middle America and in some ways maybe 2 years behind the music scene in SF, LA, NYC and Boston (to mention a few). When the underground FM rock stations emerged what was going on along both coasts was spread throughout the country.

Yeah- I guess that low fidelity live recordings from the 60's are an acquired taste. I think that they work better if they feature a top-notch guitarist and give us an opportunity to hear solos different from the studio recordings. Like Jimmy Page on the "Live Yardbirds" record a few months before he left to form Led Zepellin. That was recorded for an album on Epic Records which was withdrawn immediately at the request of JP (I think because he thought it might steal some LZ album sales- his playing on it is impeccable and they do an early version of "Dazed and Confused.")


Steve Ahola

P.S. Okay- I looked it up and Mr. Como did have 8 top 10 hits on the Adult Contemporary charts between 1962 and 1973, 6 of which did cross over to the Top 40 pop charts.

Ok- here is a video clip for "Dazed and Confused" from the aborted Live Yardbirds album (one of my favorite bootlegs)

P.S. I was never a big fan of the Doors because they were a LA band- SF Rock rules! I could accept music from other cities and countries but NOT Los Angeles because they were our sworn enemy.
Heck, they could have moved up to the SF Bay Area as a lot of bands around the country were doing. But they didn't.

I think that this must be as obscure as it gets- Johnnie Allan from the bayous in South Louisiana performing "I Cried" in the 60's or early 70's. (This song really kicks butt!):



Johnnie Allan's "Promised Land" was included in another bayou country compilation called "Another Saturday Night" eventually picked up by ACE UK who released it as a single which actually went gold.

Not that there is any short shortage whatsoever of vintage material on the Sugarmegs archive, but I've been listening to this show from late October that Al Kooper did in Milwaukee. First off, lots of great stories told in the dry delivery that Kooper has, like how he got to play organ on "Like a Rolling Stone". VERY funny guy. Second, lots of terrific soul material with a crack band that demonstrates great love for the classics.

It's a lazy 3-1/2 hr show that's like a terrific evening out with old friends. A great listen for a long drive or a lazy weekend afternoon.

I encourage everyone interested in live recordings to apply to join DIME which is a legal Bit Torrent site which offers live recordings and liberated bootlegs for all artist who are not on their NAB (Not Allowed Artist and Band) list. Of all the live recording BT sites that I have checked out DIME is the strictest in terms of not allowing any recording that was officially released on any commercial album or video recording.

All audio recordings are lossless, usually FLAC but some of the older ones are in SHN format. And yes they have quite a few video recordings, some from TV broadcasts, some audience recordings and some pro-shoot ones that were never officially released.

http://www.dimeadozen.org

There used to be a limited number of openings- probably still is- but keep trying. Members not visiting the site in the past 150 days are dropped, thus providing openings for newcomers. (It took me about 2 months for me to snag an opening back in 2006.)

Lucky guy, ESPECIALLY if you were the keyboard player. That tune is an absolute romp for a B-3 player.

Our sax player Tony used to introduce the song, and somehow we had started referring to it as "Slippin' in the dog shit", so occasionally that was how he intro'd the song. Not one soul ever noticed. or at least said anything. I could never convince the band to actually sing the lyric that way.


We also did the Roberta Flack hit Filling Me Softly (with his song), which of course Tony would introduce as Filling Me Softly With His Dong.

The album came out in 1963, but I think it was recorded in the late 1950s.

Stockhausen - Kontakte

This mostly sounds like a partial sound track for Forbidden Planet, but when you have had a little LSD ( or a lot...) this thing marches through your head. And between 17:10 and about 17:30 there is this sound of the universe wrenching itself in two. Or so it seemed at the time. This not the sort of thing to sit and listen to, staring at the speakers.

Ain't that always the case! Some of the modern composers, with all their noisemaking and dissonance, have no appeal to those of us whose ears are attuned to a certain kind of music, whether it's baroque, classical, rock, blues, etc. And they're not composing in order to please the ears of dopers and drunkards.

Then there are certain pieces, for instance Terry Riley's "A Rainbow in Curved Air" that can put you in a trance, even if you're leading the 100% straight life. Very listenable, totally beautiful, just . . . unusual. All done on a Hammond B3.

Some more modern transcendental trance music: Baird Hersey and Prana with Krishna Das: "Gathering in the Light" (Satsang 2001). Himalayan overtone singing, no synthesizers, just human voices with a little dab of percussion. (And one of the singers is top-flight luthier Joe Veillette, others are well-known folkies and even a couple studio engineers.) If this doesn't settle your nerves and lower your blood pressure, I don't know what will - - - Oh maybe Tsmindao Chmerto, the first song on "Georgian Voices" by the Rustavi Choir, Elektra/Nonesuch 9 79224-2. It's the light coming thru a magnificent stained glass window. Find these and feast your ears. Who needs Valium or Prozac when these are available? Apologies for not having handy links.

Some of the so-called "classical" composers had their moments too - the premiere of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring caused a riot 100 years ago. Now it's taken as an orchestra "standard", and still an awesome piece of music. Dial the clock back another 130 years or so and you can even find a Mozart composition with jazzy chords, extremely unusual for the time.

Some graffiti on the back of the curtain at the local music hall: "You don't have to be stoned to dance."

Penciled in underneath: "But it sure helps!"

No drugs; in fact, when my father would blow beery smoke in my face and say, "Don't ever start drinking or smoking," I took him at his word. I've always confined my toxic experiences to girlfriends.

Little-known fact: Stockhausen was to some extent responsible for the whole psychedelic music scene. "Tomorrow Never Knows" and other tape-manipulation-based songs by the Beatles and their imitators were heavily influenced by Stockhausen's experimental techniques, which is probably why his picture is among those on the Sgt. Pepper cover.

I was lucky, if you want to look at it that way, to come across that Stockhausen LP in a drugstore bin of reduced-price LPs (I liked the cover) before my tastes in music hardened. Didn't know what to think of it, but I listened to it enough to stretch my ears, as Charles Ives would say. (Ives's father worked at stretching his kids' ears; among other projects, his father set a baby grand piano on top of another baby grand tuned a quarter-tone sharp and alternated between playing one at a time and both simultaneously. Ives said later in life that the two pianos played together sounded sour at first but the single piano soon sounded incomplete.)

I guess love of what you call music is in the Eye of the Beer, or Drug Holder!

No drugs; in fact, when my father would blow beery smoke in my face and say, "Don't ever start drinking or smoking," I took him at his word. I've always confined my toxic experiences to girlfriends.

Little-known fact: Stockhausen was to some extent responsible for the whole psychedelic music scene. "Tomorrow Never Knows" and other tape-manipulation-based songs by the Beatles and their imitators were heavily influenced by Stockhausen's experimental techniques, which is probably why his picture is among those on the Sgt. Pepper cover.

I was lucky, if you want to look at it that way, to come across that Stockhausen LP in a drugstore bin of reduced-price LPs (I liked the cover) before my tastes in music hardened. Didn't know what to think of it, but I listened to it enough to stretch my ears, as Charles Ives would say. (Ives's father worked at stretching his kids' ears; among other projects, his father set a baby grand piano on top of another baby grand tuned a quarter-tone sharp and alternated between playing one at a time and both simultaneously. Ives said later in life that the two pianos played together sounded sour at first but the single piano soon sounded incomplete.)
About as Heavy I got in those days, was Vanilla Fudge!

Here is an 'Obscure' one.

Curved Air doing 'Backstreet Luv'.

I had to put up the lyrics.

I could not understand her!


Curved Air – Back Street Luv Lyrics







Songwriters: EYRE, IAN / LINWOOD, SONIA KRISTINA / WAY, DARRYL RICHARD

Summer's comin', time to dream the day away
And she's so sunny is the girl you met today
Will she make it? Can she take it?
Like to try love, such a shy love

Racket back street leanin' on the wall
She reads a story of her life before it all
Did she give love? Could she feel love?
Did she find love? Was it real love?

Where's your smile today?
Did she let you try?
Try to see she didn't mean to
Make you feel so sad

Racket back street sittin' on a wall
She tells a man that she knew before it all
When she made love she tried to find love
When she gives love she will find love.

Summer's comin', time to dream the day away
And she's so sunny is the girl you met today
Will she make it? Can she take it?
Like to try love, such a shy love

Where's you smile today?
Did she let you cry?
Try to see she didn't mean to
Make you feel so sad

P-Basses band Curved Air, reminds me of the band, It's a Beautiful Day.
Their big hit was "White Dove".
Here's another one, "Hot Summer Day".

 
Mark Hammer 12/11/2013 7:02 PM
I may have mentioned them here before, but in the late 60's and early 70's there was a Quebec musical collective and cult band named L'Infonie. They were generally classically-trained musicians, some teaching at university, and ranged between 9 and 22 members, depending on the gig. Here's one configuration of what seems to be 13 or so:
[ATTACH=CONFIG]26638[/ATTACH]
One of their signature pieces (and one of their albums, a partial YOutube of which is found here: In C - Terry Riley - Performed by L'infonie - YouTube ) was a 40 minute performance of Terry Riley's In C, which I saw them do a few times. It was generally accompanied by a variety of spectacles, for want of a better word. On one occasion, the brass section mounted their sheet music on brackets attached to their instruments and wandered through the audience playing and handing out lit sparklers, while a light show went on and the drums, and rhythm section pounded away on stage. Mesmerizing.

And if you like It's a Beautiful Day you're also sure to like Zephyr. Only a couple albums, Tommy Bolin's on the first, but I got familiar with the second "Sunset Ride" around 1975. And never found a copy for myself. By that time Tommy struck out for other work, but their version of "High Flying Bird", I thought was awesome and my college band played it live. Again sorry no handy link.

Terry now you're talkin' about some of my all-time favorites! I put "Crown of Creation" CD on the stereo not long ago and wow, what an awesome piece of work. Casady just PROPELS that band, the way a pair of giant props on the back of an enormous ship do. One of my all-time heroes! In fact he's half the reason I got my Guild Starfire II bass - the other was Phil Lesh. Even before their instruments were modified by Alembic, they got some incredible tone that gets me in all the right places.

One lonely Halloween @ 20 years ago I got a call @ 7PM from the local rock club. "Wanna come up & mix tonight?" I answered - who the opening act? No - Hot Tuna was headlining and they weren't impressed with the in-house guys sooooo....... with 5 minutes to show time I got behind the console and gave it my best. Didn't get to talk to the guys but so what. It was a thrill and a privilege.

Mid 70's when Jeff Starship went pop, I wasn't so much into it, and by that time Jorma and Jack were gone. But the "Blows Against the Empire" album @ 1970 that first used the name Jefferson Starship was another monumental recording. And it got the Hugo Award for science fiction literature - which includes music starting at that moment.

All terrific Terry, and the music long ago etched onto my brain's permanent hard drive.

I feel such a lamebrain without links but I recommend a good listen to "Last Wall of the Castle" on After Bathing at Baxter's. It will melt the wax outa your ears. Scary good. Jack & Jorma are just Rippin. It. Up. !!! An obscure track to beat the band.

"How about some morning maniac music?" Gracie's singin' like her tail's on fire! What a wake-up call for the Woodstock crowd.

Like 'em or not, the Airplane played with an unusual intensity that is rare. Covered some of their tunes in my college band. "White Rabbit" of course, but we'd bop the crowd over the head with "Somebody to Love" then send 'em into a dance frenzy with an extended "If You Feel." Oh yeah those were the days! I'd do it again in a minute.

Excellent choice Terry! Leslie's guitar tone, also Felix's bass caught my ear early on.

Obscure but excellent also - the "pre" Mountain album titled "Leslie West - Mountain." Lots of good songs! Awesome juicy guitar tones! A must-have for any Mountain fan. Funny, not all know about it.

It's the way it was done "back in the day." 100W Marshalls often delivered an extra 20-25%, at clip. Surely 175 at full rip. and 16 good 12's smackin' you in the back would just about lift your feet off the ground! Volume !?! That's what this knob on the guitar is for. Tone, too. Leslie's pick grip contributed to the tone too. He just let a tiny triangle of plastic catch the string & let it go - generated fine harmonics that way. When I try it I can get a couple Leslie West notes but it ain't easy for me. He's - had a lot of practice.

A band called "Fever Tree".
The Song "San Francisco Girls".

 
Enzo 12/31/2013 12:44 PM
As yes, I have that Fever Tree LP somewhere. That kazoo-tone distortion so many had back then on the guitar.

Leslie West. My brother in law is a professional classical guitarist. A while back he got hisself a cheap Squire strat-guitar and a tiny amp. Wanted to learn about playing rock music. So I gathered up a selection of guitar music for him to aspire toward and learn from. ERic Johnson, Eddie Van Halen, Knofler, etc etc, and I included the Leslie West Mountain LP. I said if you can play Mississippi Queen, then you can play rock guitar. I saw him live here in East Lansing, spring of 1970. (Leslie West, not my brother in law)

Which video are you referring to? I checked a few of the most recent links and they all worked.

I will take this opportunity to repeat my recommendation that people download any of the videos that they really like on YouTube since they could be taken down at any time. I use Video DownloadHelper for Firefox (and Pale Moon which is like FF but without all of the bullshit code that most of us don't really need.)

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ownloadhelper/

I use YouTube all of the time to listen to songs I want to learn (at least learn enough to fake a lead guitar part for the song. )

Steve Ahola

P.S. Speaking of copyright infringement notices I got one yesterday from Facebook. It was the first time I tried uploading a video there and it was a segment from a 2005 Family Guy episode that I recorded digitally from my cable and from which I created a WMV video file.

This was the 4 minute into to the 11-06-05 episode which had bin Laden doing a stand-up routine while addressing his followers- and making fun of the suicide bomber there who was sick and brought a note from his doctor. And then Stewie removes the cloak disguising him and kicks bin Laden's boot, ending with an homage to Police Story/Naked Gun with Stewie riding his tricycle all of the way back to home, running over people like Julie Andrews in "Sound of Music" and at the very end, Homer Simpson- after which Peter says "who the hell is THAT?"

I've been organizing my 12TB archive of music, video and assorted documents and applications which had gotten too unwieldy spread across 16+ hard drives. So I had no idea where I had stored that FG video until I ran across it yesterday.

I ran across the Sabrent USB 3.0 external enclosures for 3.5" hard drives (EC-35UK) which were selling for $20 at Fry's and found that they work really well for my purposes.

Amazon.com: Sabrent 3.5-Inch USB 3.0 SATA HDD Enclosure (EC-35UK): Computers & Accessories

They are made from extruded aluminum with a "corduroy" texture to improve its capabilities as a heat sink. Being rectangular boxes I can store them like books on a shelf and pull out whichever one I need to access. (I have more than a hundred 24 bit/96khz vinyl rips I made in 2008 that I had never got around to cleaning up and converting into CD-spec audio files as I'd done with maybe 75 of the rips.)

P.S. Thanks for uploading the live Savoy Brown video! (The description says that the audio was added to the video- probably not from the same show but what the heck the light show looks cool.)

I went over to DIME to look for live Savoy Brown shows from that era and found 4 of them that I am downloading right now.

DIME is a bit torrent tracker that is legal and features live and unreleased recordings as well as "liberated" bootlegs. They are very strict about not allowing any audio or video that was released officially- that keeps the record companies off their back. Any artist or venue can choose to "opt out" and they will be added to the list of forbidden uploads.

I recommend the site to anyone who really loves live music. There are a limited number of spots so you may need to keep checking back before you can join. (It took me a few months of checking back in 2006 until I could finally get in but it was worth it. Still a member and to date have downloaded 2.2TB!)

www.dimeadozen.org :: EzTorrent v0.6.6r393

Here is their disclaimer at the bottom of every page...

Disclaimer

DIME is merely a BitTorrent tracker for audio and video recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs.

If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on DIME for free among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists, known as the NAB list. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs using DIME's trackers within minutes.

BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?


P.P.S. I was confirming the link I posted and was very pleased to learn that DIME is celebrating their 10th Anniversary with "free" downloads. (They have a very strict ratio policy so being able to download without having it count against your ratio is really cool!)

In celebration of DIME's 10th anniversary we will have freeloader days from Saturday, January 11, to Monday, February 10. Starting time on 11.01. will be 00:00 GMT, ending time on 10.02. will be 23:59 GMT.

Here's one you don't stumble onto easily. Jeremy & the Satyrs had one album (my own copy is somewhere in the basement; gotta dig it up). This is more or less what we thought of as "jazz-rock" in 1968.

Flute player Jeremy Steig's dad is the late William Steig, whom you may know as the author of many well-loved children's books like Shrek, Abel's Island, Dr. De Soto. Keyboard player Warren Bernhardt spent many recent years as Steely Dan's concert musical director and keyboard player. Guitarist Adrian Guillery went on to collaborate with Richie Havens, and bassist Eddie Gomez has since had a lengthy and respected career in jazz, as has Steig himself.

love that ritchie stuff
there's so much flat awesomness on Youtube, I'm immersed in it. I'm digging some old prog stuff from Europe and South America lately from 70 to 74 ish. my favorite new song, don't know if it was mentioned, or if I mentioned it and forgot! is Frumpy, How The Gypsy Was Born. Inga Rumpf singing, great soulful voice. Guitar player plays an oddball Vox head, good tone. Band and sound, equipment layout and instrument position the same as Deep Purple. Guaranteed a Purple fan will like it.

Lyrics are kind of quaint and odd, but, ... inclusive? pretty cool. When songs were about ideas instead of cars jewelery and drugs, etc.

I will go through every post in this thread, it's awesome and I will listen to every song) 've been jamming this song for everyone that comes to my house so I apologize if its a duplicate suggestion but its too cool not to hear straightaway.

Also, the documentary A Band Called Death. Black progressive hard rock/protopunk from Detroit. Three brothers, super tight. I remember hearing them on WABX in the motor city on sunday afternoons they had a local music show. I had a literally trashpicked totally functional Fischer tube receiver and a pair of 6" one way sealed box speakers with whizzer cones LOL that my dad made. alnico and el84's or 7189a's. sounded amazing.

Flute player Jeremy Steig
Word was in the early 70's, that Ian Anderson had um, "borrowed" a lot of his style on flute from Jeremy Steig. Heavy breathing, humming, groaning & other odd noisemaking along with the notes, like that. Standing on one leg, I'm not so sure. With this in mind I went to see Jeremy play at a small club on Central Ave. in Albany @ 1975. Rick Laird from Mahavishnu on bass IIRC. Good show!

I agree! I save every video I like on YouTube in both FLV and MP4 formats using the Firefox Video DownloadHelper add-on. For one thing, you can watch the video without those damned commercials and buffering pauses. And you never know when a video will disappear for one reason or another. BTW the search feature in YouTube gets more lame every day which is surprising to me since Google owns it. I don't know if it is payola but certain videos will be listed that have absolutely nothing to do with your search terms while ones that do don't make the list.
As Walmart has demonstrated it can be more profitable when people are searching through all of their unnumbered aisles looking for something in particular because they will hopefully fill up their basket with items that they were not planning to buy.

Steve Ahola

P.S. Is there a good video downloader add-on for Internet Explorer? Just wondering...

P.P.S. My music files are scattered over several external hard drives so if I want to listen to a song to learn it (or whatever) I will usually check YouTube first.

I figured I would throw this out there.

As great as the Beatles where (are) you simply do not hear enough of there 'non top 40' stuff.

I have always liked the way John Lennon sang this song, "Anna".
And the background guitar is killer.
From what I understand, on the final take he had a head cold.
Enjoy.

I like the story Joe Walsh tells on that song. He met George Harrison somewhere and was telling George he worked for a long time to learn the double note guitar intro. And George said "Well, you know that was two guitars, don;t you?"

With this forum indexed by Google I did not want to include any information with the post with the link. It is the full The Wild Tchoupitoulas album from 1976 which was like a happy reunion of Allen Toussant, the Meters and the Neville Brothers who had all gone their separate ways in the 70's. Considered by many to be the #1 party LP in 1976.
 
Mark Hammer 3/5/2014 8:14 AM
I had two copies of that album. Gave one to my best friend, and kept the other. That album, and the Meters' Fire on the Bayou made the 1970's liveable. Got me very interested in the history of Louisiana music, and there is some truly fascinating stuff leading up to the present day "Indian" tribes like the Tchoupitoulas, the Wild Magnolias, and others. Yeah, they gonna stomp some rump.

If you've ever seen the Elvis movie "Kid Creole", near the opening, there is a vendor wandering down the street in the French Quarter, singing "craaaawwwwww-fish". Apparently, in the very early 1800's, there was a well-known street vendor, who went by the name of Senor Cornmeal (since that was what he sold). The guy apparently had an amazing set of pipes that were well-recognized and admired in the region. One enterprising fellow booked the New Orleans opera house, and arranged for Senor Cornmeal to put on a performance, wagon, horse, and all. Unfortunately, the floor of the stage was not designed to hold that much weight, and caved in. The cart was badly damaged, horse was badly injured and had to be put down, and the good Senor lost his livelihood in the deal. Don't know what became of him afterwards, but it's safe to assume that in 18-0-whatever, Allstate did not put him back on his feet, and the entrepreneur who got him on stage did not make full restitution.

I was also quite surprised to learn that it was not uncommon in those days, for slaves to sneak off the plantation, head into town, sit in the "free-man" section of the opera house, commit arias to memory, then go out after and busk by singing opera, before they snuck back home without being detected. Now THERE's a movie.

And while searching for that one, I was dumbfounded to stumble onto a bunch of TV appearances by Leon Russell before he became Billy Gibbons' bespectacled and bearded stunt double. I'd never seen him without his trademark long whiskers and shades. He's got that cold "killer" stare of Jerry Lee Lewis.

Gotta love Jimmy Webb, no matter who does his tunes. A lot people will automatically associate his tunes, and Glen Campbell too, with sappy strings, and elevator-music arrangements. But Webb writes gorgeous tunes and harmonies that can send shivers up your spine. Usually only Todd Rundgren can do that for me.

For some reason, this tune and Jimmy Webb reminded me about Van Dyke Parks, and an album of his I have called Discover America. It's a really interesting, and offbeat, amalgam of calypso, reggae, and Hollywood musicals music. Not everyone's taste, but ya gotta love a guy who can write a calypso song about Jack Palance ("Mama, what de France you doin' in a night club?!") (EDIT: My bad. It was actually a tune by the Mighty Sparrow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gC2dvxN_lGo )

 
Mark Hammer 3/24/2014 1:43 PM
Another obscure one, though from later in the 70's. The Yellow Magic Orchestra. You have to give this one a minute or so to turn into something. It was Asian synth pop at its finest, circa 1978.

 
Mark Hammer 3/25/2014 7:45 AM
Obscure in an entirely different direction...

I was given this album to review when I worked briefly for a Montreal-based music tabloid in the summer of 1970. I kind of liked it at the time, but wasn't really quite sure where to place it. At that point in time, these guys stuck out like a sore thumb. This was contemporary American roots music before people even knew what that was. And that was the same summer I got a bunch of Chess rereleases to review, and spent the day with Ted Nugent.

A peek into Youtube reveals that these guys are still around and performing. Don't know how many of the originals are in the band, since 44 years gives people a lot of time to drift off into other things (like graves).

Mark Hammer 3/26/2014 7:46 AM
Please, please PLEASE do not hold this against me, but it does require airing, since it was a huge hit in many places in the French-speaking world. At its peak, you simply could not avoid hearing this song on the radio in Montreal. One of the hipper FM DJs in town played this song, along with Jungle Fever by the Chakakas, and I think another tune, all at the same time. It was 5 minutes of heavy breathing, a bit like an obscene phone call...with musical backing.

For the non-French-speaking, the title translates to "I Love You...Me Neither". The phrase "Je va et je viens" is essentially "I go and I come".

For those who thought that the stubble-faced, gravelly-voiced, chain-smoking singer began with Leonard Cohen, Gainsbourg was there long before him. Indeed, the stubble-faced, gravelly-voiced, chain-smoking chansonnier, is a long-standing French tradition, which is partly how Cohen was able to gain traction in Montreal.

The song was redone by Bridget Bardot and Gainsbourg (although I may be mistaken, and this version was done first). How those kinds of guys get all the girls is beyond me.

As soon as I saw "don't hold it against me" and French, I instantly knew it could be only one thing: Je taime.

The summer of 1970, I worked for a music magazine based out of Montreal. I was assigned to interview Ted Nugent. It was actually a pleasant experience, and he generously gave me my very first set of light gauge strings. The Amboy Dukes were playing at an indoor rock festival in Montreal, and I was directed by the magazine's publisher to make arrangements for meeting with Nugent by going to the green room behind the stage, where the artists were gathered. One of the great regrets of my life was that Clarence White was on the other side of that room, and I never got to meet him. The Byrds were playing the same festival, and this would have been when they were touring the "Untitled" album, with "Chestnut Mare" and "Lover of the Bayou".

I maintained a Clarence White Telecaster with his trademark B bender, for a local player.
I replaced one of the pickups, and did some rewiring on it.
Clarence White was his Hero.
He since sold the Clarence White B bender Edition, and now has a Ash Tele Model with 3 pickups, with both a B, & G bender installed.
He plays it wonderfully!

Thanks for posting the "album" version. The single is a piece of crap. The album version lets them stretch out with all that tremolo and fuzz.

I forget whether I ever mentioned it here before, but one of James' biggest hits - Mony, Mony - was lacking for a name initially. James looked out the window at the Manhattan skyline, and saw in the distance, the Mutual of New York building, and a bright neon sign: MONY.

What tickles my imagination is the fact that MONY was founded by one of America's, and one of the 20th century's, greatest composers: Charles Ives. Ives had a wife and 5 kids, and knew he could never support a family being an avant garde composer, so he started an insurance company, whose profits he used to not only support his own family, but a great many other composers between the wars, as well as contemporary music journals, and continued to compose on the side.

Plus, he also inspired a Tommy James tune.

I got a CD out of the public library a few years back, and ripped myself a copy. It was ALL television theme songs, from the 50's up to the 80's. It was funny how even without any words, you could easily tell if a show was a western, a sitcom, sci-fi, or drama.

One that really impressed me was the theme for the hospital drama "Ben Casey", that you can listen to here...along with apparently a few thousand others. Ben Casey Theme Song That tune is really ripe for covering as an instrumental. Got a lot of Stravinsky in it.

I was stuck at home in bed with mononucleosis that year, and the batteries on my little Mitsubishi transistor radio were running low. Unable to either get out to get some more, or get my parents to buy some, I did what I could to conserve the power and ration it out.

A huge fan of the Hollies tune "Look Through Any Window", I had my radio tuned to the one AM station that could be counted on to play it. As was the custom, they would work through their limited playlist in a fairly consistent manner. I could rely on that to predict when they would next play the tune. Between each repeat play, I would leave the radio off, and turn it on just in time to hear those opening riffs on the 12-string ring out.

The flubbery bass line near the end was probably the peak of Bill Wyman's career with the Stones. It made that tune.

You can't, or Shouldn't do 60s and 70s without some Chicago!
I've heard this one about 25 or 6 million times, but it still sounds good.

I used to tour with Stanley Steamer, a big horn band from St.Louis, so we did a lot of Chicago tunes. The guitarist, Bob Eagle, could just nail all those mile a minute Kath guitar runs. Something I could not do on guitar. Add to a long list of things I cannot do on guitar. One day I was noodling on the guitar playing the super simple Funk 49 licks from the James Boys, a song we often did in an earlier band. Eagle comes running over "HOW DO YOU PLAY THAT, MAN???" I showed him the lick and i said "Really? You can play all that Chicago stuff and THIS is what stumps you?" He admitted "Aw, all I got is speed." Later he asked me about the guitar lines in the Dr. John tune Right Place Wrong Time. I was flattered, but he still played rings around me.

Funk #49 - James Gang
Joe Walsh "Funk #49" Guitar Center Sessions on DIRECTV - YouTube

Right Place Wring Time - Dr.John
Dr. John: Right Place Wrong Time - YouTube

I really like the Dr.John tune.

Joe Walsh left the James Gang in 1971 (?), and the band put out a cattle call for guitarist auditions. We even had a couple guys from here in Lansing go try out, one of who was our own guy. I don;t recall who they hired, but they liked our guy, and told the other guy he didn't know how to use a Marshall. We snickered.

I went to see Chicago when they were still Chicago Transit Authority. Terry Kath was BIG man. One of those guys that made a Strat look like a ukelele when he held it. Here is some Canadian content. One of Toronto's great bands, George Oliver and the Mighty Mandala, featuring Dominic Troiano (who would later replace Joe Walsh in the James Gang). KInda reminds me of the Rascals at their best.

Here is a video from what appears to be the same TV show that appears to be live- or at least "live." Back then bands often recorded a song before a TV show and then lip-synced to it during the actual filming or broadcast (hence the lack of cables and power cords.) I enjoy hearing versions different from the recordings and that matters more to me than whether the cameras caught them actually singing and playing.

I used to run home from school every day to watch American Bandstand, and it was no secret even then, the guest performer would lip to hios record as he stood there alone. No one asked where was the band and the backup singers. One day Jimmy Dean was the guest, they spoke with him briefly, intro the song, and as Jimmy starts snapping his fingers they roll someone else's record. They all break up laughing. I dig the Mitch Ryder, I mentioned them a few pages ago. Absolutely killer bar tunes Mitch Ryder - Rock and Roll.

Really? 500 posts of this stuff and we never got to that song? I have no idea what the axe was. They weren't really playing, so it could have been anything from the back room. But it could have been the guy's guitar. I don't recognize the head stock either, nor the trussrod cover. They were a pretty big deal here when that song hit, they were local (from Saginaw). But they were just a garage band, so we night be talking Montgomery Wards.

Not sure if I ever posted these folks. I mean, cripes, there are over 500 posts on this thread now, so gimme a break! The [B]Insect Trust [/B]was a strange little late-1960's east-coast band I learned about through [I]Hit Parader [/I]magazine. They were an oddball little collective that straddled funk-jazz (as witnessed by this tune where Bernard Purdie breaks out on drums), country blues, folks, and just plain strangeness. One of their members was NY Times rock/jazz critic Robert Palmer.

Actually, there was a lot of disco that was pretty decent...if you could ignore the ugly ugly clothes and fashion that accompanied it.

I'm one of those folks who thinks that disco added a certain element of democracy to popular music. After all, it was disco where audience feedback came to shape remixes. Indeed, prior to disco there was the single, the album version, and that was it. You got what you got. Disco brought DJs and consumers into the picture to generate alternate versions of songs in a way that simply wasn't previously possible when it was just records and bands on stages.

But dear lord, the look, and the accompanying culture, was repulsive.
 
Enzo 5/19/2014 1:59 PM
Now we're gonna fight...

We used to have various kinds of music, the radio was a mix, then disco happened, and now everything was just another gooncha-gooncha-gooncha with a walking bass line.

In my mind we went from "would you like a little A1 sauce on your steak?" to "what kind of meat would you like under your quart of A1 sauce?" Let's just cram all our music into the same form.

I was a blues enthusiast for a time, got into buying old Willie Dixon records or Howlin Wolf. And those guys all played on one anothers records, so I looked up all the side men and got their stuff. Bought myself a Little Walter album. Cat plays blues harp. 12 tunes on the record, all of them 12 bars in A. It was like a whole album of the same song, they just took a break for a moment every couple minutes.


The whole reggae and ska things strike me the same way.

However there were some Disco songs that went with the era and times.
Sorta like how Rock and Soul were both going strong during the 60s.

you are right, Disco paved the way for the remarkable creativity of the hip hop movement where an atonal 3 min monologue on your ability to sell rock to your neighbors over a synthetic drum beat and the unpaid sampling of some dead musicians actual song can make make millions for an illiterate man-child and his sleazy agent...

Steve A. 6/27/2014 10:14 PM
If there was one and only one album that I could bring along to a desert island it would HAVE to be Harvey Mandel's masterpiece debut album "Cristo Redentor." Very unusual for a guitarist who was offered a chance to make an album by Abe "Voco" Kesh, the DJ/producer who just hit it big with Blue Cheer. "Let's go in the recording studio and blow everybody's socks off." NOT!

Each track was carefully planned, yet very spontaneous. "Wade in the Water" is the track that put him on the map on the FM underground stations. He recorded the basic rhythm track at the Avalon, with Amando Peraza on congas. I think that he added strings in LA and recorded most of the solo guitar parts in New York with Eddie Kramer. About 4 minutes into the song we get the coolest reverse tape guitar solo ever. Only back then I thought he was playing it in real time- if I got high enough I could play some of the riffs (or maybe that was the drugs talking.)
"How he do dat?!?" I think I finally figured that out. He first recorded the basic solo he wanted to use and then reversed the tape and overdubbed a part playing along with that solo for his guitar track, which was then reversed to get final reversed tape version. Confused? Me, too.



That was the song that got him on the charts (the FM underground radio charts that nobody kept because it was underground, man) but the rest of the album goes into all sorts of different directions. The tracks recorded in Nashville include Pete Drake on pedal steel, with some great interplay between him and Harvey. And he recorded some tracks with his buddies Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica and Steve Miller on keyboards from Linn County (not the guitarist.) I've been listening to the album for 45 years now and every time I hear something that I didn't notice before.

P.S. Here are some of the other tracks on YouTube...

My original intent, were deeper album cuts of name brand bands, and musicians.
Most of the real obscure stuff, are artists that were not good enough to be played anyway.
So as it stands now, iif it fits in the 60s, 70s rock platform, have at it.
Hopefully keep the cuts good enough to deserve playing time.

It's all cool. Don't get me wrong. I dig the tunes. I've contributed quite a few, but when I do, it's something I probably haven't heard in a long time, or may have never heard at all that I surfed across, or popped up on an internet radio station.

I've always got music playing. Always. Broadcast radio has forever bored the shit out of me. lol@ the 'Top 40' stations during the disco era. That was enough to kill laboratory mice. The classic rock, and country stations of today aren't any better. The same stuff. Again, and again.

I love the internet most for the music that it makes available to me. On the laptop that's in my shop, when I open my browser the start page is sugarmegs latest additions... Sugarmegs Streaming Server Latest Additions Page

Story has it Jerry was given that Strat by Graham Nash. I'm glad he took to it - the tones on Europe 72 and now ALL the shows available from that tour, are to die for. Just PERFECT! Might be there's an Alembic Stratoblaster pre built in. Later in the 70-80's the Stratoblaster was sold at an attractive price, built onto a replacement plate which was installed instead of the regular output jack. (I installed one in Peter Frampton's red Fernandes Strat 1982.) Single FET pre, with a bypass switch, powered by a 9V battery. There's a trimpot that lets you dial up to 6 dB or so signal boost.That would also suffice as a "line conditioner" so the guitar tone isn't loaded down by long cable and effects. Definitely a good thing to have.

Yes, familiar with soldering gear, you bet. If not themseleves, their Prankster Pals Bear, the Hassler & others, and lets not everforget our own Merry MEFster, Rick Turner. Rick could give you chapter & verse on that gear, I'm sure.

A blast from the past, that's in the present! That fits with a San Francisco band from "the psychedelic 60's". I love that stuff. "Magic Hollow" is a different sound than most of the rest of their catalog. I don't know how to link. I'm working off a cell phone, we don't even own a computer. The copy i have is on the CD "Psychedelic Visions" a Temple CD from England. (Also has the Great Society cut on it).

Hey Tee,
Sure, I remember "White Bird". Used to be cool stuff on the radio, right up to the end of the 70's. Then they limped along with the occasional U2 ,REM or Robin Hitchcock, then petered out to whatever one would call today's warbling scream singing. Yeah, I'm getting old.
How bout Moby Grape "Sitting By The Window".
Or the recording engineer at, I believe, Abbey Road studios, that was so unassuming that John Lennon called him "Norman Normal", who took the stage name "Hurricane Smith" and had a hit with "Babe, What Would You Say".

<snore> I fell asleep about three minutes in.. Traffic was one of my favorite bands back then. I got to see them minus Dave Mason when they opened for The Dead in 92 or 93. I think Jim Capaldi was the driving force of the band. His rhythm's were the structure of their sound. I saw Winwood play at 'The Joint' in the Hard Rock Hotel in the late 90's. He's an amazing artist. Dave Mason is almost always touring, and comes through Vegas pretty often. I've seen him play many more times than I can count. It's always a great show.

This is a Capaldi album from '75. On it there's everything from rock to blues to funk to ska to Latin beats. I was happy to see that someone had ripped it, and posted it up. I've got the LP, but never converted it.

I have that disk somewhere, probably down in my shop in storage.

Hah!

Somewhere in the '70's I saw Robin Trower at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.

Up on the third level, at the rear of the hall, some fool was dancing around a fire, dressed up as an Indian Chief, complete with the headress.

Sign of the times I guess.

I would imagine the Fire Marshall was having a stroke.

Free-associating from Fanny, I guess.
I might not love this stuff, but it is obscure-ish.

Pre-leather spangly miniskirt Detroit all-girl band The Pleasure Seekers, featuring the Quatro Sisters.
Some songs heavy Motown influence, some not.

You might want to skip to White Pig Blues or Brain Confusion. Or not.

Rolling Stone, Suzi's first solo single, hit #1. In Portugal. Frampton on guitar. Let it run for more delights.

Her older brother Mike was a regional Detroit area star in the 70s, and it was due to him pointing out sister Suzi to a record promoter that got her the notice and a shot at the bigs.

And for me the later Jukebox Hero was an anthem

Have you been watching the HBO series Vinyl?
NPR speculates that the Xavier character is a fictionalization of Jobriath.
Some critics say that James Jagger's character is a British version of Richard Hell.
I think the photographer Devon met at Max's is a British heterosexual version of Robert Mapplethorpe. Maybe.

Edit:
I was wondering when they were going to drop the dreaded "D" word- Disco.
It looks like Clark (the guy who reminds me of Bill Hader) is about to "discover" the Latin Hustle.
I wonder who's going to discover Bette Midler and Barry Manilow at the Continental Baths?

Thanx for the Trower trax Terry & rjb! Nice of Procol to let Robin rip it up, opening track too, on their 4th album "Home." Whiskey Train has been one of my "amp check" tracks for 25+ years now.

Counting down to seeing the man live, a week from Sat. nite, 500 seat auditorium, should be good. And then another week 'til Apr 30, Walpurgis Night. So here's "Repent Walpurgis", album track from PH's 1st LP. Robin's solo starts in @ 1:18. An awesome start to a great career.

Bob Jones was the lead guitarist in We Five. When the band broke up and were dividing up their loot he opted for a smaller share of the money in exchange for the band's equipment including a van with a set of drums and a PA system. A wise investment as Mike Bloomfield heard him singing and playing drums in 1968 and had him join his band, a gig which lasted many years.

I guess you're either into Hammond B3 or you're not. It just happens that I am.

Here's a playlist, starting with some of his newer material.

Here's Booker T. jamming with CCR in 1970. I haven't listened to the hour and five minute recording.

FWIW, I do vaguely recall hearing John Fogerty play Green Onions with Booker T. and the MGs on TV.

Nothing at all wrong with a B3. Here is a classic Jimmy Smith from 1967, T-bone Steak




I used some of his music back in the 60s when I was on the radio. It was perfect instrumental stuff for behind announcements and what not.

But my favorite moment with this song was when we were touring, and in the middle of some long jam tune, I forget what, the guitarist ends his solo and sends it to Ken, our keyboard. Ken does a long solo and at some point breaks into the basic riff of this song, and it was the bulk of his solo. Little did he know I knew the piece. The guitarist was smiling at him like "say, that is tasteful". But I busted him. At the end I said over the mic, "Chris on guitar, ladies and gentlemen. And a little T-bone Steak from Ken on the Hammond." Ken had no idea any of us had even heard of Jimmy Smith.

Steve A.

P.S. After pretty much setting the standard for blues-rock in the mid 60's and having everyone copying his riffs I think he decided to move on to something new in the mid-70's...

I was very unimpressed with most of the hard rock bands that emerged in the 70's because it was all territory that Jeff Beck had already covered.

Sorry about that.
I love King Curtis. And Cornell Dupree. And Jerry Jermmott. And Bernard Purdie. And Billy Preston.

check this Alabama band



singer was 17!

Album cover is a bit freaKY, but is awesome.

Guitarist who wrote all the songs and sang was Myke Jackson,became a youth minister and changed his name for sadly obvious reasons. No members joined the Dickies, who sucked.

Free-associating: That "Felt" cover reminded me of the Pousette-Dart Band's "mascot".

I liked PSD back in the '70s-early '80s, but I don't remember why.
Maybe because they started out as a string band.

Here they are, being indulgent in Oakland.
I know one thing. And that is... even though you can dance to this song,... this song... definitely... is not.......DISCO!


The original studio version was more "commercial",
recorded when all pop recordings were required by law to include a Fender Rhodes and phased-shifted guitars:

For a while, they sounded like a second-tier country-rock band from Massachusetts.
Which I guess they were. They did open for Pure Prairie League.

This Loggins & Messina-ish tune was featured in an episode of "Lost".
I never watched that show.

For musicians with folk roots, they could go in an extremley commercial-pop direction.
Their "hit single" For Love is so saccharine, it has been rumored to induce diabetic coma.
For safety's sake, I won't post that one.

Traffic and Stevie Winwood have been my favorites forever! While Spencer Davis had two AM radio hits in the mid-60's I picked up 2 or 3 of their British albums in the 99 cent cut-out bins at Whitefront... really great stuff that didn't show up in America for years and even then only some of the tracks.

As for Traffic I did swap their very popular second album with a friend for the first Electric Flag album in 1968 but I soon replaced it. That was Winwood playing most of the guitar solos and I was very intrigued how he would play the major pentatonic (country) scales instead of the minor blues ones... not even knowing what they were but just knowing that they were different.

After Traffic broke up in 1974 I moved on to Jim Capaldi's "Whale Meet Again" and "Short Cut Draw Blood"... Here are some YouTube videos of his songs:

I loved Winwood and Traffic myself. WHen we were touring, there just isn't a better bar dance song than Gimme some lovin'

Let's hear it!
Spencer Davis Group, "Gimme Some Lovin"

Love those old SDG videos. Winwood was just a kid, but boy could he sing.
Here is a Derek and the Dominoes video that I just stumbled onto. Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash too.

I like this version as good, or maybe better than the Traffic version.
Mike Bloomfield/Al Kooper
"Dear Mr Fantasy"
Great Stuff.
I dig the Billy Preston style Keys!
**It hits all my buttons, Rock, Blues, & Jazz!

Road's self titled album (1972) made up of Noel Redding and Rare Earth's Rod Richards and drummer Leslie Sampson

A couple tracks have a real Blind Faith feel, good stuff!
 
tedmich 6/17/2018 3:57 PM

Headhunters 1973

Some guy named Herbie on keys and this cool drummer named Harvey Mason

You might consider showing single songs.
Not going to listen to a whole album of anyone, except maybe the AllBros.

Here's a band that didn't get that much air play.
1971, Savoy Brown, "Tell Mama"
I had this on vinyl and played it a bunch, my daughter got my vinyl collection.
May still have it on Disk.
I like the Slide Guitar.
