Even The McCoys, who did Hang on Sloopy...lol!

11:02pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

That is so true AL Z!

11:02pm   Al Z

Just about every band in the late 60s was doing a blues number.

11:01pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Well, at least you got to see Zep when they were still great. Never saw them live!

11:01pm   Bailey

My second was Ihre Kinder and Alexis Korner in Trier Germany that summer

11:00pm   Bailey

You started going to concerts much earlier than I. Mine was Zep at the Forum 3/27/70

10:58pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Yup! My first blues concert was Savoy Brown in 1968, only my third concert ever and they were touring behind the Blue Matter record at the time!

10:58pm   Bailey

Bought my replacement cope of blue matter, the first clash lp and one of about 10 different versions of ian dury new boots I bought that year and panties and a damned 7" at the same time in the same store.

10:55pm   Bailey

WWell that just shows how much all of us who heard Blue Matter back in the day loved it and played the shit out of it. I replaced my played to hell, bought in 1970 us copy with a british copy in Vienna Austria in 1978 lol

10:55pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Yeah, that Taste song was one of my early favorite blues covers Bailey!

10:53pm   Bailey

Leaving Blues is actually the song that got me into the blues when I was 9 or 10 (via the Blues News sampler). For about two years the ONLY kinds of music I listened to were zappa, the fugs and white guys playing the blues lol.

10:52pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Armando!

10:52pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Holy Jesus! This vinyl is one scratchy mess...haha!

10:44pm   Dave

Do you have "Just to Cry" by The Keef Hartley Band?

10:34pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

You gotta watch all of it, Jeff! It's that good!

10:34pm   Bailey

10:33pm   Jeff

Tore me up! At 1:30 I had to skip to the end... just couldn't sit thru all of it!!!

10:32pm   Bailey

if you ever need a long break you should play side 4 of this album

10:31pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Incredibly moving right???

10:27pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

10:27pm   Jeff

10:26pm   MrMalcontent

I like this show

10:25pm   Bailey

i got a great sounding 1968 radio show this morning. a bunch of 70's etc stuff too but i think the 1968 one is the one you'll want of what i've found so far

10:20pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)


10:19pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Jeff, I think I played Strange Days last Sunday, so it's in another box, but I have some other Humble P{ir blues, if you wanna hear something else!?

10:17pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Oh yeah, I guess I forgot too, Jeff...haha!

10:17pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Sounds good, Bailey!

10:16pm   Jeff

Kinda forgot which show this was (Duh!), perhaps Humble Pie's Strange Days would be more appropriate...

10:15pm   Bailey

i got a great sounding 1968 radio show this morning. a bunch of 70's etc stuff too but i think the 1968 one is the one you'll want of what i've found so far

10:13pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

That would be cool Bailey!

10:11pm   Bailey

good that tonight is the blues show. i might have a chance to send you some rare aretha stuff in time for the soul show

10:09pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Yeah, too bad it's not my Soul Satisfaction week, but she'll get the love on Sunday's show, Dave!

10:06pm   Dave

VERY sad news about The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. : (

10:06pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Bailey! Can't go wrong with any "Taste"!!

10:05pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Dave!

10:05pm   Boss Guy In Claremont (host)

Hey Jeff! It's a sad day indeed! I'll check on the JB request!

10:04pm   Bailey

the best shows often start out with a taste track

10:01pm   Dave

Good evening Blues Guy in Claremont!

9:58pm   Jeff

Somber greetings on this joyful occasion John, all mourn the loss of this great talent! Would it be possible to slip in James Brown's "Static" in during the FIVE HOUR Aretha tribute tonight? ;-)
