Classic Rock Bottom


I am attempting to Build A House With Song, and it seems the next logical step would be...well, what is it that Real Estate people say?
It's time for Choosing A Location.
Let's look around- maybe a House In The Country!
While I know WE would be Good Neighbors, I can't speak for everyone.
And of course, we don't need a Mansion, just a simple House.
With a Solid Foundation!
Not just Beams and Concrete, but also with Values, Morals and Faith!
Please join me for this 2nd Chapter, picking out a place where we can use our Weapons Of Mass Construction.
Here are the links to listen and select a nice suitable place, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Before I read what you wrote RJ...Pink Floyd...Another Brick In The Wall, lol!

How could you ever go wrong with a McCartney tune!  I don;t usually post much from him on CRB because he doesn't play very well on here to some folks.  But I may rethink that because he's got some solid stuff.  And this series reminded me of Speed Of Sound (what a great album!!) - You should really consider playing Let Em In once your house is built.

And then you hit me with Out In The Country!!!  Dang!  One of my all time faves, love Three Dog Night....  And with that 3rd tune its clear where this house is being built.  You know people in the country move a little slower than most, this house could take a while to build!  You know watching flowers grow can get pretty boring really fast.  just sayin'.  Interesting tidbit that the Flowers in the Window tune was co-written by McCartney.  He has an album titled Flowers In The Dirt - wonder if there's some weird connection.

The Kinks!!  Shocker...

Mike you got sentimental in your selections to end this show.  I found it quite nice!  I'll give the GP to the Laura Burns tune!  Nice stuff here...

No Floyd?  I can't believe you're not gonna use some bricks to build the house.  You probably should furnish it too.

That first Blood, Sweat & Tears album, Child Is Father To The Man, is great!
Al Kooper quit after that one, and David Clayton Thomas took over the vocals and their self-titled next album is very different, but great too!
You wanted some Three Dog Night, then GET SOME, LOL!
And hey, get that Kinks album Face To Face, you won't regret it.
Although albums and the songs on them were short and concise then, no taking a 3 minute song song and stretching it to 6 or 7 minutes to fill a CD!
Not a bad joke about Nebraska.
I had you in mind for Bruuuuuuuuuce, no other real good reason to play it, lol!
Travis doesn't do rap...if they did I doubt I'd play them!
No, still no morning wood song- they may be good for propping up tents but I am not building a tent.
Thanks for the listen, writing, and now you can go back on the roof and signal...soon as you're done working in the garage, lol,

Hey, you liked 'em all- that's a good thing!
Three Dog Night IS one of the all-time great band names, and do you know the story about how they chose it?
Yes, I was waiting for you to list the staples, lol!
Never Turning Back is just beautiful- and as I said, I've never played it on the radio other than on a few notable  9/11 shows.
And the Golden Pell goes to Travis for Flowers In The Window.
Excellent pick!
Although if I had never heard them before, I would have picked BS & T (Al Kooper quit after that first album) or Three Dog Night.
Next? I still don't know, I haven't recorded it yet.
But I think we will be finishing up the framework, lastly wth the roof since you build up.
You know what I do now- I pull out all the songs I can think of about a Theme, and then as I play them I think of others.
Pink Floyd is not in the pile, you must know something I didn't think of, lol!
But that makes it all fun, and I like it when you or anyone second-guesses me.
Getting people to think is great, and doesn't it feel good when we have a meetting of the minds and I DO play one or more you thought of?
Sure, everyone is invited to take The Grand Tour!
Ain't that big a house though, lol!
Thanks for the listen, writing and always insightful comments,

Funny stuff. I was thinking about picking up some Blood, Sweat & Tears while driving into work a few days ago, forgot about it and then you played a song by 'em. That is so cool!

Then, as I was listening, I wanted some Three Dog Night! 

Then I listened some more and you said something about everyone having to own that Kinks album and I don't! And I don't wanna! Don't ask why!

Then I got lost....Bruuuuuuuuuce and Nebraska? Hey, why do the trees in Iowa bend to the west? Beacuse Nebaraska sucks! Get it!

Then it got a little bit country and I drifted off and then came Travis and I liked that. Never knew rappers could do stuff like that.

Then the show was over. Still no morning wood song. They're good for propping up tents.

Another nice little collection of songs Mike,  I liked 'em all.

Doesn't Three Dog Night have one of the all-time great band names?

Some staples...Paul McCartney (more so with The Beatles than solo, but still), The Kinks and Bruce Springsteen.

That last full song Never Turning Back was real nice.  And lyrically, it fit this theme perfectly.

I think I'm giving the Golden Pell to Travis.  Flowers In The Window was a really cool song.  

What's up next?  Materials?  I'm expecting some Pink Floyd for that.  And I wonder if, when we're all finished, we might take The Grand Tour?
