original Fleetwood Mac from 1969..........
What are you listening to Bevo Joe??
Dedicated to my daughter Claudia!
It's Monday, it's overcast outside and I'm in a melancholy mood today thinking about someone very special that died suddenly & unexpectantly in late 2020.
I have not been quite the same since.... this album takes me back to first days.
a little more Wishbone Ash..............they just dont make good rock n roll anymore.............
Still in a Moody Blues frame of mind.... true greatness.
7th Sojourn album reminds me of fall 1972, my Freshmen year in college living in the dorm listening to this album and drinking beer with my roommate....
Better man than me Worster, when I was in college ‘guzzling’ beer was a more apt description, ah heck, inhaling was even better. Sad case.
The core 7 were a lot more than just 7 unique albums, they were a musical culture and lifestyle. When Mike Pinder left all that seemed to change. No doubt they had some great albums and songs after that, I even love December Snow, but the culture didn't seem to be there anymore and the albums didn't send the same message as before. And Moraz was just a mistake. He didn't fit with the others and offered nothing more than just being a decent keyboard player.
Too bad Pinder had to leave.
RIP Ronnie Spector..........
RIP Ronnie - I've had an earworm for Be My Baby since I learned of her passing yesterday.
Today: 461 Ocean Blvd. album... Eric Clapton 1974.
Here is one of my favorite cuts:
Agree 100%. Pinder left in 1978 after the album Octave and they were just not quite the same after that. Although Long Distance Voyager - circa 1981 is one of my fav albums of theirs - a masterpiece.
The last time I saw them was about 3 years ago at a casino outside Minneapolis. Edge was still drumming, with Hayward on guitar, Lodge on bass guitar. Ray Thomas had died about a year earlier so there were some backups for keyboard and other stuff.
They still sounded GREAT and the crowd was going nuts including my group.
Meatloaf gone. Had a few good songs. Seemed like a good guy, and was a Texas, apparently had moved to Austin recently.
meatloaf two outta three ain't bad - Bing video
Bat out of Hell - a collection of songs for men that only men can appreciate & love.
Guy was a great performer, perhaps the only one to ever rival James Brown.
RIP Meatloaf, another Texas legend bites the dust.
Blink 182 Aliens Exist (live)
Who was in their original lineup?
