Together this group has put together something truly special. George Foster has a lot of talent and is musically unafraid to take on any style and willing to be a completely relevant artist today without having to compromise his craft like so many others.
I like that most of all. You can feel that diversity in his playing on tracks like "Dancing With The Devil", "My Cheatin' Ways", the slow bluesy swagger of "Evangeline", the adrenaline pumping grooves of "Secrets" and "Hard Times". But the track that won me over hook line and sinker is the closing "The Fields Of Aberdare", clocking in at a bit over seven minutes, George Foster's guitar work left me comfortably numb.
Real blues rock guitar played from the heart and soul, what a joyful musical experience it is. This all-original set is powered by George Foster, guitarist extraordinaire, and brought the rest of the way by his perfect complements: Jarrett Williams vocals , John Hart bass , and Gary Ferguson drums. Together, this band is reminiscent of the power trios of the 60s and 70s, with obvious nods to Hendrix, Trower, Marino, and so on.
In an era when music rarely lives up to its promise, George Foster and his compadres deliver big time, with taste, power, and fury. This is a virtuoso joy ride that is a must have for fans of guitar-oriented blues-rock. Steven J. All of the songs have that classic vintage 70s hard rock vibe with some serious soloing from Foster. He lights up the fretboard with blistering licks all over this recording. Another plus is the great soulful voice of Jarrett Williams that fits the heavy funky soul powered rock on display.
If you love classic guitar rock by any of the artists I mentioned above with great vocals and a lot of smokin' guitar work - check this out - it'll bring you back to a time when rock ruled.. This George Foster swings big axe instead of a bat. He has some Hendrix influences which I always love.
I don't remember much about this show except that it took a long time for Tommy James to start playing. Well, the crowd became restless and began throwing grapefruits or oranges at the stage. One person hit the top of the band shell and the fruit dropped perfectly on a cymbal. Local celebrity Pat McMahon was the emcee of the show and he was livid.
They did and the show eventually continued. This was a good, long show. I remember Steppenwolf having a big wall of speaker boxes to each side of them and if I'm not mistaken the grill cloth was blue.
Their guitarist, Paul Cotton, would go on to join Poco. At the end of the show balloons and confetti dropped from the ceiling as it was New Year's Eve.
All I remember was the loud volume, standing no seats and terrible echoing. I think there may have been Persian looking carpets on the floor. My dad bought me a ticket and I went solo. I'm 15 years old at this time. This show had a rotating circular stage centered on the floor.
I remember walking the floor before the show and noticed a large black equipment case. I remember thinking "Who's she? All I remember from them is that the guitarist sweat a lot. Here is this strange band with an over-the-top lead singer. It was so bizarre to me. Just the effect he wanted, I'm sure. Iron butterfly put on a fine show. They had, in my opinion, their best 3 albums out. The played for quite a while and the sound was very good. At the end guitarist Erik Brann stooped down and lit a trough of something on fire.
It was a fairly large inferno. I'm so glad I saw this show. A friend took me and we were high up at one end. Again, a rotating circular stage. There were huge speaker boxes stacked high behind the bands. I don't remember much about the Delaney and Bonnie set but it went off without a hitch.
Blind Faith takes the stage and starts the set. The stage rotates a few times and then my friend and I notice the speaker boxes shake. The stage stopped rotating. After a few minutes people started moving from one end of the coliseum to the other. My friend said, "Let's go" and we headed from our seats way up and away from the stage down to the floor. We ended up right next to the stage. Blind Faith did their set and during the end, Delaney and Bonnie joined them on stage.
About 4 security guys picked her up, held her above their Addrisi Brothers - Weve Got To Get It On Again, and took her off the main floor area right past my friend and me! By the way, one of the security guys was future Dallas Cowboy Bob Breunig. I knew him from Alhambra High School and my family knew his family.
When the show ended the band also walked right by me. Honestly, I did. There wasn't anything remarkable about this concert except it was the first concert in coliseum after Jethro Tull played a year or so before. Security was ultra tight and much of it was made up of regular folks. He couldn't hear him as the music was loud so I had to tell him to put out his cigarette.
All in all it was a good show. This was a most excellent concert. Ian Anderson starts out sitting in a chair playing a guitar. The song is "My God. He did this in one quick motion. This was the only concert I saw from them but that was enough for me. The drummer was wearing a T-shirt, basketball shorts, really high socksand those sunglasses that are about 18 inches wide. The keyboard player was wearing a leather helmet with goggles. And Ian Anderson looked like Aqualung from the album cover.
Not only was the sound spot on, but I love the sound of the band. Here is a similar set list. This show was a real disappointment. Black Sabbath came out and played probably 5 or 6 songs and then walked off the stage.
No explanation, no reason given, they just left the stage. I read in the paper that Ozzy Osbourne didn't like the PA system. They sounded great. I don't know what his beef was but it disappointed the crowd. That left a bad taste in my mouth for Ozzy. Too bad, really, because I love their music. This is the first of four Who concerts I've attended. The year prior, the album "Live at Leeds" was released and that added to the anticipation of this concert. All in all it was a good concert and we also got to see Pete Townshheend smash a guitar.
Here is the set list. This was a fantastic show. Their first two albums were out and they were really on top of their game.
Plus you can't beat the sound at the Celebrity Theatre. It was one of those nights where the sound was perfect, the band was just great and the crowd was enjoying every minute of Shame The Devils - Robin Trower - The Steel Album. This was not the concert where, I heard, Jim Messina had his hand in a cast.
I believe that was the next year. What can you say about Frank Zappa? He's quite the showman and one heck of a guitar player. My favorite album is "Hot Rats", but I really like quite a few.
One thing I remember clearly is the percussion work of Ruth Underwood. Called the band's "most political song",  Rolling Stone ranked the song number on its list of the Greatest Songs of All Time. There was all this violence going on. I mean, they almost toppled the government in France; de Gaulle went into this complete funk, as he had in the past, and he went and sort of locked himself in his house in the country.
And so the government was almost inactive. And the French riot police were amazing. Richards said, only a few years after recording the track in a Rolling Stone interview with Robert Greenfieldthat the song had been "interpreted thousands of different ways". He mentioned how Jagger went to the Grosvenor Square demonstrations in London and was even charged by the police, yet he ultimately claims, "it really is ambiguous as a song".
Richards plays the song's acoustic guitars as well as bass, the only electric instrument on the recording. Shehnai is performed on the track by Dave Mason. It came in a little suitcase, and there were wire brackets you put the drums in; they were like small tambourines with no jangles The snare drum was fantastic because it had a really thin skin with a snare right underneath, but only two strands of gut Keith loved playing with the early cassette machines because they would overload, and when they overload they sounded fantastic, although you weren't meant to War Of The Worlds - Plan 9 - 8 Hits From Hell that.
We usually played in one of the bedrooms on tour. The drums were really loud compared to the acoustic guitar and the pitch of them would go right through the sound. You'd always have a great backbeat. The basic track of that was done on a mono cassette with very distorted recording, on a Philips with no limiters. Brian is playing sitar, it twangs away. Dance The Night Away - Mann - Manns World holding notes that wouldn't come through if you had a board, you wouldn't be able to fit it in.
But on a cassette if you just move the people, it does. Cut in the studio and then put on a tape. Started putting percussion and bass on it. The song opens with a strummed acoustic guitar riff. In his review, Richie Unterberger says of the song, "[I]t's a great track, gripping the listener immediately with its sudden, springy guitar chords and thundering, offbeat drums. That unsettling, urgent guitar rhythm is the mainstay of the verses.
Mick Jagger's typically half-buried lyrics seem at casual listening like a call to revolution. Cause in sleepy London Town there's just no place for a street fighting man, no.
Unterberger continues, "Perhaps they were saying they wished they could be on the front lines, but were not in the right place at the right time; perhaps they were saying, as John Lennon did in the Beatles ' " Revolution ", that they didn't want to be involved in violent confrontation.
Or perhaps they were even declaring indifference to the tumult. Other writers' interpretations varied. InRoy Carr assessed it as a "great summer street-corner rock anthem on the same echelon as ' Summer in the City ', ' Summertime Blues ', and ' Dancing in the Street '. The song was released within a week of the violent confrontations between the police and anti-Vietnam War protesters at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.
This was much to the delight of Mick Jagger, who stated: "I'm rather pleased to hear they have banned the song. The last time they banned one of our records in America, it sold a million. It's stupid to think you can start a revolution with a record. I wish you could. Keith Richards weighed into the debate when he said that the fact a couple of radio stations in Chicago banned the record "just goes to show how paranoid they are".
At the same time they were still requested to do live appearances and Richards said: "If you really want us to cause trouble, we could do a few stage appearances.
We are more subversive when we go on stage. Tour shows: "That one line, 'What can a poor boy do but sing in a rock and roll band?
And it's funny; it's got humour to it. Jagger continues in the Rolling Stone interview when asked about the song's resonance thirty years on; "I don't know if it [has any].
I don't know whether we should really play it. I was persuaded to put it [on Voodoo Lounge Tour ] because it seemed to fit in, but I'm not sure if it really has any resonance for the present day.
I don't really like it that much. Released as Beggars Banquet ' s lead single in August in the US, "Street Fighting Man" was popular on release, but did not reach the Top 40 reaching number 48 of the US charts in response to many radio stations' refusal to play the song based on what were perceived as subversive lyrics. While many of the US London picture sleeves are rare and collectable, the sleeve for this single is particularly scarce and is considered their most valuable. A staple at Rolling Stones live shows since the band's American Tour ofconcert recordings of the song have been captured and released for the live albums Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!
Oasis recorded a version that was released as the B-side to their single " All Around the World ". The song can be found on the fourth and last studio album by Rage Against the Machinetitled Renegades. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
