Hey, Dragon: that Butch RS interview mentioned this concert getting an official release a few years ago. I have the bootleg.

 

The Allman Brothers Band
Live at A&R Studios, New York, August 26, 1971
and broadcast on WPLJ-FM. A stereo FM broadcast.

"This album was recorded live at A&R Studios, New York, on August 26, 1971 and broadcast in stereo on WPLJ-FM. The objective of the broadcast was to promote their "Live At Fillmore East" album. The show was recorded two weeks after the death of King Curtis, who was a great friend, and a huge influence to the late, great Duane Allman, who also, tragically lost his life in a motorcycle crash in Macon on October 29, just two months after this show.

During the broadcast, Duane pauses to reflect on his late friend: "About King Curtis - that was one of the finest cats there ever was. He was just right on top of getting next to young people, you know? It's a shame. If y'all get the chance, listen to that album he made out at Fillmore West. Boy, it's incredible, it's unbelievable, the power and the emotional stature the man had. He's an incredible human being". A little over eight minutes into the song, `You Don't Love Me", Duane slows the band, leading everyone into his own version of `Soul Serenade'. When Duane repeats the melody of the song , the audience begins clapping along to the lovely tune. Suddenly, Duane jumps in and absolutely cuts the melody to shreds with one of the most emotional and passionate solos you will ever hear, taking it to another amaxing level. This is an incredible powerful, graceful, and loving musical eulogy for his lost friend."

Nice to see some King's X love. Underrated band.

Great news. Midnight Oil have announced a world tour. No news on new material though.

I have that on vinyl. That RS interview with Butch also discussed Duane's heroin addiction, Duane called Butch out backstage about his playing and how Duane wasn't getting anything from him, Butch threw it right back saying he wasn't getting anything because he was fucked up on Heroin, Duane immediately booked himself and other band members into rehab, he took his music that seriously.

I came across this televised performance of Johnny Winter back in 1970 in Copenhagen. Hot doesn't even begin to describe Winter's playing.

This is pretty awesome on so many levels.

 

Enjoy!

I've never really listened to their earlier albums outside of the classic Machine Head and Live in Japan but HOLY SHIT this is a fantastic debut!

post #1778 of 1780

The later Zep albums tend to get sneered at a bit as part of the narrative of the old blues rock dinosaurs being savaged by the brutal violence of punk, but sparked by a Thor-related thought, I revisited "In Through The Out Door" today and it struck me that some of the songs really represent an apotheosis of sorts. "I'm Gonna Crawl" is the peak of their straight blues efforts, "All Of My Love" their best synthesis of folk and fifties balladry, "South Bound Suarez" their grooviest rock and roll homage and "Fool In The Rain" probably their best and least self-conscious effort at something funky.

 

It's an album that I've always felt gets short shrift, and I think that is unfair.

 

 

 

I can't find a video of "Fool In The Rain" on YouTube or Vimeo, but I did find this bit of wonderfulness.

 

 

Farkin' 'ell, indeed, Bonzo. Farkin' 'ell, indeed.

So, at age 42 I just listened to my first Grateful Dead song. Dark Star and Sugaree.

I was expecting something more pronounced but I guess they're just one of the 60s California folk rock bands? Or is there something more to them I'm missing?

I've never been the biggest fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but the nominees for the next class are pretty great (mostly):
