Classic Rock Bottom


More of that NEWER Music for most of this 2nd half of Odds & Ends, songs from the last year or two.
The Theme without a Theme, lol!
Beginning with a guy who I'll bet has had more Music released since he died than when he was alive!
Included in this episode are some Doctors, and a song you probably know by Led Zeppelin, but it is actually a very old Traditional Tune.
And breaking out of all the New, a return to some Old with a dedication to a sorely missed Folk Rocker who died in April.
Beginning with the first time I heard him, it all changed for me- and I can honestly say without this musician, I don't listen to Music the way I do.
Here are the links to listen to listen to an almost half and half show, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Oh...but if he didn't say anything how would we know it was him, lol?

There was still that experimental 60's feel to it, that to me lasted from around 1964 to around 1974.

THAT was the 60's!

No, you misunderstood me, I liked the Richie Havens.  I just thought it would have been better as a total instrumental, without the few spoken lines.

Wow man, you did a Rockollections Marathon, I couldn't even find the time to reply it was so much, lol!
Yes, Hendrix was known to be able tp play a little guitar.
Damn good song I thought, and I only chose one from his album.
Yes on Lonesome by Dr. Dog, no on Gallow's Pole- fair enough, I can't win 'em all.
And the Golden Pell winner is Nils Lofgren!
My fave album of 2011!
I'm telling you, it's a great album, with all sorts of different moods and tempos.
And naturally he does a Springsteen-like track.
Let me know if want a few songs, my favorites.
Too bad you didn't care too much for the Richie Havens, I've loved it for years.
Thanks for listening and writing, and the test of don't EVER do that again, LOL,

Good man, you liked the Richie Havens song!
I love it, and have for years.
What band was it there was a notable absence of, lol?
Can't seem to think of it.
I had you going with that Gallows Pole eh?
This is good:

I counted and there have been 72,734 albums released by Jimi Hendrix since he died. That's a lot.

Yeah, that's a lot, LOL!
I really like the Dr John album, and I only chose one song- there's a lot more in there.
It's not Dr. Lonesome- it's Dr. Dog singing Lonesome- but you could be just busting my chops.
I kid around and tell a lot of people that I like some new music, as long as it sounds like the OLD music, lol!
In point of fact, most music today DOES suck!
Thanks for listening and writing, and especially for the...drum roll...Great show! 
Wow, that's high praise from you, I appreciate it.

I'll give the edge to the first half, but this was good too.

I liked the "new" Hendrix tune.  Nice guitar, imagine that.  Dr. John didn't really work for me, but Lonesome by Dr. Dog was definitely better.  I also didn't really care for that version of Gallow's Pole.

I have a Golden Pell winner for you.  It's Nils Lofgren.  Another totally cool song.  That album currently resides in my Amazon wish list.

And that final song was kind of jazzy.  Jon's finally right about something.  I could have done without the few spoken lyrics.

Ooooooooooh. This was NICE. That Richie Havens song was really jazzy, man! JAZZY!

I like this show better than the first even though it was mostly new music since there was the notable absnece of a band I shall not name again.

It took a second to figure out that Neil Young song. Zeppelin? Really? Oh, yeah. Got it. Gallows Pole.

I counted and there have been 72,734 albums released by Jimi Hendrix since he died. That's a lot.

Dr Hook John was a good song. And Dr. Lonesome didn't sound like something new, it sounded like something, well, old. There's a lot of retro music stylin's happening. Maybe most artists figure that music today sucks and they don't wanna sound sucky.

Great show!
