Nice!

Just found this live version of the same - recorded in 1968:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HfkSzsyh1E

Love the clean sound of a "Power Trio" e.g. Cream :

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_trio

"A power trio is a rock and roll band format having a lineup of electric guitar, bass guitar and drum kit (drums and cymbals), leaving out the second rhythm guitar or keyboard instrument that are used in other rock music bands that are quartets and quintets. Larger rock bands use one or more additional rhythm section to fill out the sound with chords and harmony parts."

A great great band as everyone knows. I saw Jack Bruce live in ‘97 when he was touring with Ringo’s All-Starr band (with Gary Brooker of Procol Harum and Peter Frampton). Also, I taped it! Here’s the set list. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/ringo-st ... 741ef.html
Then a few years later I saw Clapton. I never saw Ginger Baker though. Now only Clapton left alive.

Trower is great. I remember when A Whiter Shade of Pale came out, it blew me away. Although according to Wikipedia Trower hadn’t joined the band yet. What do you think of John Cipollina (Quicksilver Messenger Service)? I love that band. https://youtu.be/Wi0e7brHdMQ

The organ solo introduction to "A Whiter Shade of Pale" brings tears to my eyes.

"Happy Trails" / Quicksilver Messenger Service is interesting. Not familiar with them. Wiki lists the genre as "psychedelic or acid rock" and I can kinda hear why with the long guitar solo. Wiki says one side of the album was a single song (filled with lots of guitar improvisations; gets pretty experimental and free form about half way into the first side).

"The recorded live performance of the "Who Do You Love Suite" was almost 27 minutes long, and some of Gary Duncan's solo ("When You Love") was excised,[citation needed] perhaps due to the space constraints of LPs. At the end, Bill Graham announces, "Quicksilver Messenger Service." According to Mick Skidmore, Cipollina found the critical laud for "Who Do You Love?" baffling, saying "it was just a two-chord jam.""

Coincidentally, I clicked this thread to say that I've been listening to Opeth's latest album In Cauda Venenum and saw your username as the latest post. It didn't really grab my attention when it first came out and I've been trying to give it another chance, but I still find it a bit disappointing. The production is good and I like the sophistication, but the songs still seem meandering and aimless.

I've not heard of Soilwork before now--I'll check them out more.

Awesome!! Yea I got into Opeth during the Ghost Reveries years and feel a bit disappointed in their latest also, although its their best since Watershed. I dig Lovelorn Crime, Garroter, and Universal Truth, but thats about it for the new album.

I love Soilwork. Some of my other favs. are Slipknot, Korn, In Flames, Devin Townsend

You might enjoy a Clapton CD that features only Robert Johnson songs, Me and Mr. Johnson. Interestingly the CD does NOT have Crossroads in the 14 tunes it features.

I listened to the Nouveau Jazz Showcase for a while last night. Good selections with new artists (unknown to me anyway)! 🧐

Herbie Hancock goes classicdal - depending on how Gershwin is judged - classical? pop? jazz? Other? All? Whatever, Herbire does it his way, to the delight of another original, wunderkind conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel. Sorry the video is a bit blurry.

The Studio Outtakes — Frumious Bandersnatch. A San Francisco group active from 1967-69 whom I’d never heard of before. They were almost unknown outside SF as they never landed a national recording contract. But they sound pretty good, with a sound similar to Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead. The name was taken from Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky. I’m listening on Apple Music but I see their music is on YouTube.

Here’s an album on YouTube though it’s not the one I was listening to.

Johnny Winter with Leslie West from Mountain (I think), from Step Back.

Aways good to listen to Johnny, he knew his way around a guitar, for sure.

I'm surprised he lived as long as he did.

Fun thread!

I've mostly been listening to Coltrane '58: The Prestige Recordings, featuring his "sheets of sound" era playing YouTube of "Come Rain or Come Shine". The precision of his virtuosic playing while still making elegant melodic phrases and voice-leading is truly astounding!

I've also been checking out Aaron Parks newest release Little Big II: Dreams of a Mechanical Man YouTube of the first track, "Attention Earthlings", and anything/everything by Walter Smith III YouTube of "Capital Wasteland"!

Listening to the eponymous album "The Empty Hearts".

It's an upbeat, throwback-to-earlier-times rock&roll album, rather enjoyable. Glad to hear the guys in this band are still making good music -- they're from The Cars, The Romantics, The Chesterfield Kings, and Blondie.

Gary Clark Jr.

I first head him on a CD from Eric Clapton's concert for Crossroads, the drug treatment center in Antigua he supports.

He has the same style guitar playing as Anders Osborne, kinda rough around the edges, raw.

I remember long ago reading The Rolling Stone Record Guide's entry on Forever Changes. They rated it as a 5 star album so I figured I'd buy the CD and give it a try (this was the '80s). And I still remember listening to it for the first time... wow, what a listen, it was and is really captivating! I'll have to listen to it again, thanks for posting.

Meanwhile I'm currently listening to "A Can Of Bees" by the Soft Boys.

Right now, Peter Frampton Band's All Blues.

A lot less frenetic than his earlier works when he was a rocker.

Very mellow.

Here’s some news about this album. The Electric Recording Company of London England has just announced it’s issuing a mono master on vinyl from the original source tapes. But the prerelease price of £300 is a bit too steep for me! (No affiliation)

ERC057M Love - Forever Changes (True Mono)
11 June 2020 by Electric Recording Co
.

Mastered in True Mono from the original 1st generation master tapes (identified by the abrupt edit at the end of “A House is not a Motel”) via our 1965 all valve Lyrec / Ortofon analogue cutting chain. No equalisation or compression was used during the mastering process.

^^^ Yes, that's pure soul. Quite some talent.

Philly area:

The last song on WXPN's Funky Friday broadcast was this. Funkytown- Lipps Inc (original)

I can't get the song out of my head, so I'd thought to pass it along. :)

OK, switching to WRTI: Nouveau Jazz Showcase, Temple University radio.

I listened to part of the Nouveau Jazz Showcase last night. They had some good selections!

Right now I'm listening to this interesting, new jazz trio from the UK I heard about on NPR today. Nice harmonies and eclectic sound with acoustic bass. NPR speaks highly of them FWIW. :happy

Trio: "GoGo Penguin"

NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert:

While I love jazz standards, it's always fun to hear up and coming musicians with new ideas.

Outside enjoying family. Listening to Jimmy Buffet on Amazon Prime Music.

Drinking a Leinenkugel Summer Shandy, smoking a Rocky Patel cigar.

In about 30 minutes we will fill up our pot we usually use for frying a turkey for a shrimp boil. Yum!

Life is very good!

I hadn’t heard of this group before. They’re pretty good! I’m streaming their self-titled album right now. Thanks.
