Classic Rock Bottom


It has occurred to me that this Rockollections show will not go on forever.
Some day, for some reason, it will end, as everything does including us.
So rather than wait to play particular songs in a Theme, or finding a reason to play them, I have decided to go for myself and just play them because I want to!
These are Favorites of mine encountered over the many years I've been listening to Music, and some may be just Guilty Pleasures on my part.
Included in this opening half are some what I named "Rock Me Out Bed Songs".
Because they literally would do just that, lol!
I invite you to my home, sit anywhere, and listen while I play some tunes for valued guests!
Here are the links to what promises to be even more Free-Form than usual, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Thank you.

I realize now how unimportant that is.

Good day to YOU Sir, LOL!

New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, generally from 79-83.

Would it kill you to let me understand what the hell NWOBHM is, LOL?

Comment by Jon on May 31, 2014 at 5:37pm

Actually, I like both versions. The blues of FM and the metal of JP (who, believe it or not, are NOT NWOBHM).

You nailed it...until someone comes along and does it again, and you'll prefer the Judas Priest one, lol!

That's what happens when you get old. You refuse to embrace change.

It's ok, but the old Fleetwood Mac has more going on in it, a far more interesting sound.

And I tend to like the ones I grew up with anyway.

Now you can say that you've heard this version!

Comment by Mike Pell on May 28, 2014 at 10:15pm
Hey man, they are not victims...unless you find the bodies under my floorboard, lol!
I am sure Gene Simmons has some gems, he was quite the man with the ladies!
Wow, Super show you say, must be on that wavelength.
Yeah, Robert Gordon kills on that one alright.
Isn't that Coasters song great?
Everybody I've ever played it for really dug it.
Wow, the first time you've ever heard The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown)?
I am proud to be the supplier, lol!
Like I told Jon, I didn't know that Judas Priest covered it- the Mac is only one I know.
And again, that's why I need you guys for that kind of information I don't have.
Now with regard to the Golden Pell, if I hadn't heard them, all would be contenders, and all close.
My pick after some thought would have been John Mayall.
Your pick, after some thought, I expected to be The Green Manalishi, and I was close.
Never expected Tim Buckley to get it for Halucinations- although I thought you would like it, as it is a killer, atmospheric song.
So while Tim Buckley is still grossly unknown and underappreciated, he gets the recognition of your coveted Golden Pell.
Nice going bro, I like that immensely, your openness to all music!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Watches are not 40's, whenever my battery goes I am lost.
But you make a good point with telling them to check their cellphones.
I would though, because it would piss me off big time if some broad I was picking up the check for was texting someone during dinner, or at any point in the evening actually, lol!
I don't think I said I have a LIST, just playing stuff from my Top 5 Million, a number I picked out of the air.
A long time ago I realized when playing music for people at home, I frequently said. "This song would be on my Top 100 of all-time"!
It gradually became apparent that by 100 I meant 1,000- and that didn't even make it- so now I say my Top 10,000...maybe more, lol!
I like The Who's version of Summertime Blues, and even others like Blue Cheer, but Robert Gordon's is the one.
Funny you should mention The Who though, because if I had more time I would have played the best song from that Live album, Magic Bus!
You wonder how many people know the Judas Priest version more than the original version from Fleetwood Mac?
Don't count me, I didn't even know they did it- I told you, that's what I need you for, lol!
Alright, I am not going to respond or even verify your math regarding my non-existent list.
Like I said on the show, I don't DO lists man!
But I LOVE it when you go all dramatic, usually with RJ, like this:
Please. For the love of all that's holy,
You can break me up, laugh my butt off, LOL!
Thanks for the listen and writing,
