The Youngbloods / Jesse Colin Young - a comp of my favorites from them

“Ride the Wind” is so under appreciated and probably little known but it’s one heck of a song.

76F / 79% RH / 14 mph - all in all, a pretty nice day

My buddy from work smoked a tri-tip and texted me to come over and drink beers and watch the game... so we adjourned to the patio and watched from there while we burned a couple smokes with a few beers.

Turned on the iTunes and introduced him and his wife to a few different genres. AC/DC... Live Wire (live from Atlantic recording studios in NYC), Alabama and Allison Moorer (his wife likes country and hadn't heard either), Bruce Hornsby and the Range (his 8 year old daughter is learning piano), Eagles, Elton John, Boz Scaggs... and they were like... dude!

Yeah... musicians... that can sing... and play instruments and stuff. They're both mid 30's. I think we have some converts.

“Are you ready to get down? Are you ready for some rock ‘n roll?”

Thanks Spotify!

"Serves you right to suffer baby, serves you right, Your gonna live alone"

J. Geils-Serves You Right To Suffer

https://youtu.be/jRdRLnKhZlg

I love this song...my ex wife hated the blues, she called it my "feeling sorry for myself music"....anyway whenever we were "disagreeing" I'd put this on and crank it up to "11"...it's funny, because after that I couldn't hear her at all....I could see her lips flapping away, but I couldn't hear anything but some good music
It was prophetic too...she now "Lives Alone"

Guitar lovers paradise:

Santana McLaughlin - September 1, 1973 - Chicago Amphitheater, Chicago, IL

They ended their tour 5 days later in Hawaii. I often times wish the 18 year old me could have appreciated it as much as the old, grumpy guy that I turned into. d'oh!

Dunno when I last listened to the whole album but guessing 45+ years at the very least. Some of those youthful activities I participated in make it hard to recall details. Whistle

They’re in town tonight but I’ve always preferred the original lineup to the one with Joe Walsh. And no Glenn Frey? No thanks.

Missed seeing them in 1977 when they played at the Waikiki Shell. Went to see Little Feat instead but Jaco came up after their show and sat in on the encore - “Teenage Nervous Breakdown”.

Had totally forgotten about MF for many years. He brought his band to my small hometown in '76 and I'd never heard anyone play a trumpet like that before...and few since

Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland

I remember buying a used copy from a “hippie” shpo back in 1970, shortly before Jimi’s death. A few years later as a perk of working in a record store, I swapped my worn out, scratchy records for new copies. The old set was returned by a “customer” because it “skipped”. Liar

Interesting. Hadn't heard of this. Misread your post the other day and thought Rock of the Westies, which I enjoyed at the time of releases and even more once it became apparent it would be the last studio album from him that I could like.
Love most everything he did around 70, so I'll have to give it a listen

Great recording....Border Song is a highlight...always like Rod's version of Country Comfort better, but this is a great piece...the medley is sort of weird/all over the place, but it does give Dee and Nigel a nice showcase

Will compare and get back to you.

Edit: 2018-12-31 - The version I have is slightly longer in the beginning but after listening to the opening cut a couple of times, believe it is the same recording.
