[QUOTE=tessler;489325]Love the first CTS album, but [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safety_in_Numbers_%28Crack_the_Sky_album%29"]Safety in Numbers[/URL] has to be my favorite![/QUOTE]
The live albums, (Either the authorized, complete with the William Tell Overture noodling or the unauthorized WBAB booty are terrific and capture the essence of this mostly unknown band.) I think John Palumbo went on and did at least one solo.
The entire collection is very difficult to find, I have bits and pieces.
The only music I'm hearing today is coming outta one of these:
HEY! Cheap Trick fans (i've seen a few posts)
anyone digging this?
Well I guess I have been out of the loop, had not heard of the band and I missed the show at the Double Door. Quite honestly, I doubt I would have made the trip into the city.
Thanks for bringing me up to speed, Derek. Interesting personnel/combination.
Time Fades Away[/URL] is one of my top five albums of all time. I bought it when I was a kid in the 70s. Little I did I know that it would be one of the only Neil Young records not released on CD.
Like a late night run to White Castle, once in a while I need some BOC. In this case specifically ME262.
What's not to like about a good rave up?
I know. Guilty and ashamed. (not really)
This again is about where my head was musically and how this album twisted me up. This one brought hard rock and southern rock together for me which was completely new.
When they got "heavy" they were as good as any band at that time IMHO.
The 3D "inlay", which is really an outlay and only on the original release was pretty cool too.
Bobby Caldwell was a great drummer, could do quick rolls better than any I have heard who played a kit and not timbales. Met a similar end as Jaco, street fighting.
The Brian Setzer Orchestra is the best! They wrote new arrangements for many great classical songs. For example-Take the 5th is the new version of Beethoven's 5th.
Just added Captain Beyond to my itunes. I'm slowly converting my vinyl to itunes with an ION USB turntable. Today was Cleo Laine Live at Carnegie Hall, John Mayall's The Turning Point, and an unnamed album with Norman Blake/Tut Taylor/Sam Bush/Butch Robins/Vassar Clements/David Holland and Jethro Burns. The last is the newest; recorded in 1974, Cleo in 1973 and John in 1969.
The "other" Frank.
I am giving this band a try [url]http://www.timtheband.com/[/url]
Oh some of this:
And this genius:
And back when Phil had chops:
Brand X, [B]nize[/B].
Fond of their album "Do They Hurt" myself.
Also, Phil doesn't sing which for me is a good thing. ;)
