Now Listening...

Recommended Posts

Many will scoff. So if listening to a full 6:53 of outstanding (albeit not hippie genre) classic '70s rock is a lot to ask, let me recommend starting at about 4:34. And if that is still a bit too much, drop in at 5:15 and stick around through to the end. Stevie is incandescent and the band is world class. They didn't sell the number of albums they did by being boring either on or off the stage.

 

 

And to see her going similarly off the hook in a stunningly gorgeous way, some of you may want to check out the Midnight Special '76 video. FYI, Midnight Special was what we had in the mid and late '70s before MTV. Live music by live bands. It was pretty cool.

Chuck's post set me off into a day with Fleetwood. I had them playing either in my mind or on speakers for all hours. They had so many good hits and history. I only saw them live once, Jan 25, 1970 in the very little little "Sports Arena" in Atlanta, when they were in transition from being a blues band to pop rock music.  The following week they opened for the Grateful Dead in New Orleans and the next day set in with the Dead for their "New Orleans bust" fund raiser and then  a week or so latter were on the New York stage with the Dead and Allman Brothers.  But then their leader, Peter Green, got a little too weird from The Bear's chemistry and soon left Fleetwood Mac to a more mystical life. The band grew to become one of the biggest hits of their era.

I'm going to have to pull out my old double album, "Fleetwood Mac, Live in Chicago" on which they play with the Chicago grates such as Muddy Waters etc.

check Out these Uncle Walt’s Band (Champ Hood, David Ball and Walter Hyatt) tunes played by David Ball and that Carolina Sound, if you are in Austin or Nashville. :) Or just Spotify Uncle Walt’s Band anthology.  Champ Hood’s son Warren Hood is a virtuoso on the fiddle, though he studied classical guitar at Juilliard. It was fun to see these guys  fill the night air with song last night. 

 

 A tribute Uncle Walt’s Band from 2008? or so. Marshall Hood on the lead guitar.

I just never got into Dylan besides Jerry/dead doing it. I believe the song when I hear Jerry sing he ain’t give you none though. Every time I hear Jerry sing I buy it. I’m not religious but when I hear Jerry do gospel I believe it.
