A diverse offering of genres today......

Sorry, no pics today (I know it makes it bland but I didn't find anything that fit the way I wanted them too. So here's the music!!!!!!

First up is Slade - Live at Sheffield (UK) and it's circa 1973. Sorry no set list on this one but if you are a Slade fan there are no surprises here! Nice sound and this is a single file with no track separation.



This was a surprise which I found many years ago. It's Sandy Denny's band Fotheringay with a compilation of stuff from several sources (listed below). For fans of the UK folk band this one is indispensible.

Fotheringay - Wild Mountain Thyme

1 Too Much Of Nothing - Bob Dylan
2 The Way I Feel - Gordon Lightfoot
3 Interview
4 The Sea - Sandy Denny
5 Eppy Moray - Tradicional
6 The Lowlands Of Holland - Tradicional
7 Interview / Gypsy Davey - Tradicional
8 Will Ye Go Lassie Go (Wild Mountain Thyme) - Jimmy McPeake
9 John The Gun - Sandy Denny
10 Bold Jack Donahue - Tradicional
11 The Ballad Of Ned Kelly - Trevor Lucas
12 Intro / Banks Of The Nile - Tradicional
13 Late November - Sandy Denny
14 Nothing More - Sandy Denny
15 Memphis, Tennesse - Chuck Berry
16 Silver Threads And Golden Needles - Dick Reynolds / Jack Rhodes

The players:

Sandy Denny
Trevor Lucas
Jerry Donahue
Pat Donaldson
Gerry Conway

Robin Trower has long been one of my favorite guitarists and this one of my favorite shows of his. It was recorded in San Francisco on either 11-2 or 11-3-73 at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco California. Most sources I've found go with the former date, but there is such a discrepincy I'm leaving it open. I really don't care, it's all about the music to me anyways. This is from an LP called Guitar Bandit released on the Amazing Kornyfone label (Tarkl-1939) many years ago.


1.The fool and me/2.Twice removed from yesterday/3.Lady love/4.Day dream/5.Day of the eagle/6.I can't wait much longer/7.Man of the world/8.Sinners song/9.Little bit of sympathy.

R.I.P. Jimmie Dewar


From back in their progressive days here is an excellent set from Journey entitled Live at the Record Plant '74. Date is unknown and it features the more experimental side of the band. Steve Perry isn't here so if that Journey is your cup o' tea, you may not like this much. A personal opinion: Gregg Rolie was a better singer, I just never got into Perry that much. Too much whoa-whoain' going on with him. No set list, sorry.

Not yet Steve


Here are some John Lennon & the Plastic Ono band demos from the album of the same name released in 1970. These were floating around on a CD called "the Dream is Over" and thought some of you might enjoy them. The last track is cut short by whoever I got them from back in my trading days. Tracks are tagged.

John Lennon demos and ouutakes


John McLaughlin & the Mahavishnu Orchestra - the Mourning Flame of the Eternal Five. Compilation of the band's TV/radio performances from 1973: ABC In Concert, Don Kirshner's Rock Concert and BBC in Concert. A little bit o' hiss but still nice. This is tagged as "....Eternal Fire" and I always thought that's what is was called until the internet came along. For the jazz fusion/proggers out there!


Thanks again for checking out my blog and if you'd like to thank me, just click that little box at the top of the page. I know I sound like a broken record but these are tough times for me and it really helps ends meet. Thanks!!!

Your timing is impeccable. I'm off to see Mr Trower in London tomorrow night. This will put me nicely in the mood! Much appreciated (as are all of your posts). Thanx. - Bob.

Thanks for the Robin Trower show...I've been on a Trower kick here lately and I think this shold do nicely. Also...

I ripped a Farflung disc for the guy over at 8 Days In April because I thoght he would really dig it since they are one of the few current (more or less) bands that truely invoke the spirit of 1970's space rock...around here we say they are more Hawkwind than Hawkwind. Anyway, if anyone is interested you can email me at:

rocknrollsteve at gmail dot com

and I'll shoot you over the links for the zip files. If you are into stuff like Golem and Hawkwind/Nik Turner you should really check 'em out...

Thanks again for the killer stuff, especially the Sabbath and AC/DC shows...

I'm not complaining here, just a suggestion. Blondie quality is great 5/5, whilst Slade is 2/5. Could you add a similar comment to the posts.

Not meaning to moan, I am grateful. Damn, the Blondie concert is amazing!
