Classic Rock Bottom

Got two more parts on Blackouts- apparently I haven't seen the Light yet, lol!
Looking back at the one in 2003- the one I enjoyed least of all- the last I heard about it was that it originated from Somewhere In Ohio.
Had something to do with an Overload.
Then I'll musically include another item you should always have in the event of the Lights going out.
Finally, is it just an Urban Legend?
Or nine months later, do birth rates really spike in the affected areas of Blackouts?
It would seem there is an awful lot of seducing going on during those periods.
So some Songs Of Seduction!
One more Chapter to go after this one.
Here are the links to listen as you stumble to the Bedroom, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
At Podomatic

I read it, I didn't know he was coming out with an album but I did know his feelings about the so-called Hall Of Fame.

With this beginning I thought I had nothing going, "The Good, The Bad and The Nuthin' In Between Show for me".
Turns out only 2 weren't liked, lol!
Yeah, I like Kenny Rankin a lot, and doing Candles he came to me.
Honestly, I wasn't sure how people would take that Talking Heads song, but I did want to play it.
It was strange even for them, and it is slow and weird- and I dug the title for doing Blackouts.
Oh man, I love the Moody Blues, and I love that they are NOT in the R&R Hall of Fame, lol!
I'll keep playing them and hope you keep liking them.
They have 2 main singers, Justin Hayward and John Lodge, and I hadn't heard about a solo album.
They have all remained friends over the years, and it is not unusual for them to play on each other's solo albums- so in many ways they ALWAYS sound like the Moody Blues, lol!
I felt the same away about those last two songs...nice to hear.
Straight to The Jayhawks...without any interference, lol...the treasured Golden Pell!
I thought you guys would like that one.
Since 2003 I have been connecting that song with our last Blackout, hearing that it started Somewhere In Ohio.
Took a long time, but I finally got that chance to play it.
It is from an album called Smile...daring because of the same title of that legendary lost album by Brian Wilson.
I had listened to them previous to that, always thought they were good.
But then they changed their sound, tweeked it somewhat, and the result was that album is terrific.
Although some of their older fans didn't like the change.
I sure did, and to me that would definitely be the best place to start!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

First song, good. Jayhawks, SUPERB.

And then came The Talking Heads. I listened to this and said to myself, "this song is AWESOME". Then you said it's from The Talking Heads, off their "Remain In Light" album which I had when it came out on vinyl and which I have on CD and have listened to many, many times YET I COULD NOT REMEMBER THIS SONG!!!! Wow. Damn. Wow.

The Kenny Rankin

Moody BLues were good (of course), and then the last two were allright. I think Rankin kind of threw me off of really, REALLY liking the last 3.

Well's The Good, The Bad and The Nuthin' In Between Show for me.

I'll start with the bad:

That first song and the Kenny Rankin song.  I know you're a big fan of Rankin's, but this song is not good to me.

...and the Good:

Everything else.  That Talking Heads song, although I'm not a fan of the band, is way cool.  It was slow and weird, perfect.  I liked the soundbite too.  Those are always great to hear.

And how 'bout those Moody Blues.  I tell you, this is another band that you play a lot, and I always like the song you play.  I read where one of the guys, I guess the singer, is releasing a solo album that sounds a lot like the Moody Blues in 2013.  And the last two songs by James Taylor and Kris Kristofferson were nice to hear again.

Now, for the Golden Pell.  It goes straight to The Jayhawks.  I've been pondering picking something up by this band.  Somewhere in Ohio was perfect for this show and I really, really liked the song.  What album was it on?  Maybe that's where I need to start.
