Classic Rock Bottom


With all those Castles, Kings, Queens, Bishops and Knights, it makes you think of a Chessboard, doesn't it?
This time at Ye Olde Renaissance Fair we will hear Songs of Battle and a Love Triangle.
And then our Trip To The Fair will end, for we may have stayed Too Long!
Both Halves of this show were Dedicated To The Memory Of My Good Old Friend, Dan Donnelly, FDNY.
We Are All Diminished When A Man Of Honor Passes From Our Ranks!
Here are the links to listen, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Dropped in at the end of the Series, but it's true, better late than never, lol!
I like those Renaissance Fairs, you're lucky. 
And I could go for a Turkey Leg right now!
I kicked off Pt.4 with Yes to make up for all the songs I played that nobody knew, lol!
Very early on, the RRHOF became a joke, the less said about it the better!
The acoustic guitar on the Suzanne Vega is real nice, makes it for me- and I'll ask you too, did you catch the Surprise Ending?
Seemed like the guy was gonna score...but!
And the GPell to Bonnie Raitt with it's cool electric geetar, and what I thought was the perfect closer to the series.
Finally, call me dumb, but what is LARPing?
I swear, I don't know, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Well you finally came around and got into it.
I thought the others were Renaissancey, lol!
Getting Strawbs confused with the Raspberries- perfectly understandable given your diet of berries and nuts!
Nice you had a favorite, guess I got better as I went along.
That Vega song is really good, and did you catch the Surprise Ending?
This just in...yes Bonnie Raitt can play more than the Blues, lol!
Let's Go Mets Tonight!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Good half Mike.  Although I do think I prefer the previous half overall.  

I thought the Suzanne Vega song was really good.  And I see you played Guinnevere by CSN.  I guess I called that one.  

I think the Golden Pell will go to Bonnie Rait.  That song, Too Long At The Fair, was really, really good.  I was thinking about how great the guitar work was, then you said it was Rait, and I thought..."I should have figured that out.  

Anyway, good series.

Dropping in mid-series again, better late than never!!  Mike - I think you should take this one step further and do a LARPing series.  I know Jon would appreciate that!


Charlotte host a quite large and popular Renaissance fair, in fact it should be starting in the next week or two and running into mid November.  Its well attended and the Turkey Legs are a must eat!!

Kicking this off with Yes is great!  Love them.  I would make a comment about the RRHOF fame right about now but I cant stomach them.  Suzanne Vega, kinda weird vocal style, but the acoustic guitar was nice!

Interesting listen but I gotta give the GPell to Bonnie Raitt because it had cool electric geetar and I heard the Yes track before...

Resume LARPing...

This sounded like Renaissance Fair songs!

That was The Strawbs? I get them confused with The Raspberries. It makes sense. The confusion.

For a series of shows that I thought I had heard before but hadn't, I think this one was my favorite. In a way the sounds kind of sounded the same, but they weren't. Well, with the exception of Yes.

You know, too bad that Vega is really known for a couple songs. This song is really good.

Well, then. THat wasn't the blues from Bonnie Raitt. She plays more than the blues????? Why, what the.....

Nice show!!
