Kevin well right offhand I would suggest you look into anything in the Black Uhuru Island Record catalogue. They are pretty accessible but still hard core dynamic reggae, Sly and Robbie riddim driven. Michael Rose their lead vocalist has a great voice and they have many classic tracks. And then buy some compilations like Rockers soundtrack, maybe stick to Island Records catalogue, and then seek out LPs of the artists on them that strike you. Maybe look for Lee Perry produced vocal LPs like Max Romeo War In a Babylon or Heptones Party Time. Trojan Records in the UK is another good starting point. From there you get into the way more obscure styles of reggae by following artist/producer trails. If you want some real specific titles, email me, I think my email is visible in my profile.

Also you might want to check out the "what are you listening to this second" thread, both Hairball and myself have been throwing down some good selections.

Its kind of funny reading some of these posts, and amazing the heights that some fairly local talent have gone in the years since I saw them. Like CCR...I first saw them playing at the Cottage Park Friday night high school dances, as the Golliwogs. A couple years later I happened to be at a favorite beach, Muir Beach, on the Cali coast north of SF and there just happened to be an Acid Test going on that weekend. The first band up, introduced as "we used to be the Golliwogs, now we are Creedence Clearwater Revival" were a real surprise. This had to be maybe late 68 or early 69.

Fun times.

Oh I meant to mention, besides missing the Beatles, I also most regret missing Bob Marley and the Wailers, especially when they were booked at the Boarding House I think it was after getting stranded on the road after besting Sly and the Family Stone one too many times. And this was the real "Wailers" with Tosh and either Bunny Wailers or probably more likely Joe Higgs too, before Bob became the big star of the show. I was out of the country at the time but I knew one of the people who rescued them and arranged the shows, basically to get them some bread to get back to JA.

I also thought about buying a ticket to his shows later at the Paramount theatre in Oakland, but them opening for the OJays or whoever it was, just wasn't near my bag, so I skipped.

Dang, DaveG.
Very, very, impressive.

Proud to say I was at at lease two of the same ones you were at winking smiley

(also, may have asked at the Lisa show, but where did you see Jimi & The Beatles? Seattle?? Sicks Stadium for Jimi by chance?
Great list.

Hey Mike, the Lisa show was lots of fun, especially when she reached down and put her hand on each of us during a song! I’m sure her flirtatiousness was genuine!

I saw The Beatles at Dodger Stadium, August 1966.

As for Jimi, I saw him at Newport ‘69, a 3-day festival in June of 1969, Devonshire Downs, Northridge, California. In fact, the performance I saw is on YouTube and was filmed from right near where I was standing. It was a jam, with Buddy Miles and others.

Hope you’re doing well!

Dave your list is extremely impressive & the only one to feature The Beatles, The Stones, Led Zep, The Kinks & Hendrix. (that's 4 of my top 6 favorites all-time) You're so lucky!

I did notice that the following bands were absent: The Who, Yes, The Doors, Rush, Van Halen etc. If you don't mind me asking, did none of those bands appeal to you or just not appeal enough to go see them and/or other reasons?

(3hrs.45min.) Jimi Hendrix- GYPSY SUN & RAINBOWS - Woodstock Festival rehearsals

Thanks, Kevin. Yes, I was very fortunate to see so many of the greats. Living in L.A. back then afforded many opportunities.

As for the bands you mentioned: I was never much interested in seeing Yes, Rush, or The Who. I can’t explain why, but they just never appealed to me. Van Halen came along after my concert-going lifestyle, though I thought they were all right.
As for the Doors: I went to see them at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in 1969. I really liked The Doors and was excited to see them. After the opening act, The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, I believe it was Ray Manzarek who came out and informed us that Jim Morrison was under the weather and not able to perform. He then introduced their replacement for the show: The Fifth Dimension! Talk about a letdown! So, I never was able to see The Doors.

The crazy (scary) part of that Doors story is that back then who knew if concerts etc. would be available to see (VHS/Beta weren't invented yet) in the future. Back then & even into the late 70's, if you missed it, you were SOL.

Yes is my #4 band all-time (barely ahead of The Who, simply b/c some of the filler on The Who's 70's & 80's LP's was very mediocre, not bad, but not that good either, certainly not up to their standards...I think that is where The Stones, The Beatles & Led Zep really differntiate themselves from the pack). I digress, if you haven't already heard Yes': Close To The Edge, Fragile, Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Going For The One & Tormato, give them a listen. YesShows & YesSongs, their live LP's too. Maybe after all this time you'll perceive them in a different way & it'll click. But I get it, they're not for everyone, a bit of an acquired taste.

maybe try...
Yes - Going For The One (remastered)


Ray Davies has one of the best voices in R&R (imho), they were eerily similar to the Who ~64/65 when both bands were one the rise...iirc they used the same Eel Pie Studios & producers/personnel didn't they?

Kevin, thanks for the recommendations. I will give them a listen.

I remember the Kinks show quite well. It was at the famed Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood in November of ‘69. They had just released their LP Arthur, and Victoria was getting a lot of airplay on the radio. I remember while standing in line, a Rolls Royce drove up and inside were the guys in the Iron Butterfly, who began chatting with everyone! The Whisky was not a small club (500 capacity) but the show had an intimate feel. They put on a great show.

Still though, you got to see Mick Taylor in his "rookie" year. +3 more prime era Stones shows, 70's Who & SRV, good stuff.

Missed

AC/DC with Bon Scott – to be fair I didn’t know about them at the time but they played my hometown

George Harrison – I only had one opportunity in 1992 but only heard about it on the news after the event but I feel I have seen him in spirit at the Concert for George.

CSNY – Haven’t played the UK since 1974

Keith and the Winos 1992 – Birth of first child prevented me going!

@Valeswood

Another impressive list. I love Peter Gabriel's 1st 4-5 solo LP's & Lamb Lies Down (Genesis yrs), but I could never get into the PG era of Genesis, despite trying. I bought all the LP's, used & in Mint condition for $20, was so excited, got home, played them (sampled each song) & could barely get through 1 complete song per LP, yet I love PG's voice. I think b/c it was too random, kinda like eclectic jazz (way over the top) & I don't even like normal jazz. Conversely, Collins is ok, but I like the Collins era Genesis stuff through ~84ish. What can you recommend for original/PG era Genesis? Maybe a Greatest Hits of P.G. era?

I also like Bowie's LP's through ~84/85, but love Ziggy Stardust & Diamond Dogs LP's, yet I can't get into his Live LP's. I've seen him in '90, excellent show. What can you recommend for live (70s) Bowie? (someone posted a Bowie live in '74 iirc here & it just didn't do it for me)

You're probably aware, but make sure to check out 'The High Numbers' on YT...it's The Who (july 64-Oct 64) before they were The Who. I posted a video in a prior post in this thread. (Ooh Poo Pa Doo & Gotta Dance To Keep From Crying). Live at the Railway Hotel is the complete show.

As always, thanks for the detailed feedback JB, that's plenty to go on for now. The main thing I like about Reggae (besides the actual music), is that it always seems to be calming yet uplifting & puts me in a festive mood (based on my very limited exposure to B.Marley).

As far as the "What Are You Listening To Now.." thread, I went through about 15pgs, but it's expanding faster than I can keep up with it, though I forget sometimes too.

Hi Kevin - ARMS Benefit was indeed special. I saw it at the L.A. Forum both nights, and yes I knew the shows were going to be historical as there was magic in the L.A. air. As a 20 yr. old, my first time seeing Clapton, Beck, and Page...separate sets and all together. Both nights were truly stunning w/Jeff Beck being the highlight for me, though the shows in there entirety were fantastic. Clapton was the Master of ceremonies and was a total class act, while Page was a bit weak and frail (and sloppy), though I was still in serious awe to see him live on stage. Along with them, there was Joe Cocker, Paul Rogers, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, along with others...including an appearance by Ronnie Lane himself at the end. Here's a cool news clip from LA station ABC7:



*Still have the t-shirt as seen in clip above. thumbs up

As for Peter Gabriel, I saw him not too long ago in 2012 at the Santa Barbara Bowl during the Back to Front Tour where he played the So album in it's entirety (w/original band) along with many of his greatest hits, and a couple of new tunes. Never had seen him before (or since), but it turned out to be one of the best shows I've ever experienced - both musically and visually.

Aloha!

I like ~50 of Elvis' songs...probably more, but his catalog is huge & I haven't heard but maybe 150-200 songs total. I admire that he could sing just about any style: Gospel, rock, rockabilly, country, ballads etc. There aren't too many alive/dead that could do so many, so well, as he did.

What tour was the Pink Floyd show?


Elvis - Something

ARMS Benefit! Did you know you were witnessing history in the making when you went?

What year/tour did you see P.Gabriel?

Hi Kevin - ARMS Benefit was indeed special. I saw it at the L.A. Forum both nights, and yes I knew the shows were going to be historical as there was magic in the L.A. air. As a 20 yr. old, my first time seeing Clapton, Beck, and Page...separate sets and all together. Both nights were truly stunning w/Jeff Beck being the highlight for me, though the shows in there entirety were fantastic. Clapton was the Master of ceremonies and was a total class act, while Page was a bit weak and frail (and sloppy), though I was still in serious awe to see him live on stage. Along with them, there was Joe Cocker, Paul Rogers, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, along with others...including an appearance by Ronnie Lane himself at the end. Here's a cool news clip from LA station ABC7:



*Still have the t-shirt as seen in clip above. thumbs up

As for Peter Gabriel, I saw him not too long ago in 2012 at the Santa Barbara Bowl during the Back to Front Tour where he played the So album in it's entirety (w/original band) along with many of his greatest hits, and a couple of new tunes. Never had seen him before (or since), but it turned out to be one of the best shows I've ever experienced - both musically and visually.

Steve Winwood & Kenney Jones too. Glyn Johns produced.

There’s a lot I’ve forgotten, festivals and gigs in general between 94 and the early 2000s were drunken affairs.

The bands I didn’t and would kill to have seen were The Doors and Nirvana. I did have tickets for the Dublin Nirvana gig in 94, but that didn’t go ahead Obviously. Weirdly it was scheduled for the day his body was found. (Though it had already been rescheduled from the date)

The Doors I’d love to have seen. Manzareks playing, Densmores drumming, kriegers playing and tone and Morrison’s voice were brilliant live (when on form, they could also be a disaster, but that’s a lot of bands)

Listening to the Doors set from say Detroit in 70, or any of the live albums they put out (way less edits that Rothschild claimed, the bright midnight release have made the complete shows available) they just tore the place up. I have never heard music that so suits the drunken state as the Doors live.

And another 101 artists I love and didn’t see, that list would be looooooong... grinning smiley

@Paddy

If you like Radiohead, I think you'd love Muse...I've ranked them #11 on my all-time list (just ahead of Bob Marley & Nirvana), so pretty lofty company. Literally everything they do is very good to great. Absolution is probably their best LP, but that case could be made for numerous albums.

very handy tool:
Full list of The Doors songs, listed alphabetically: ...you may wanna look at this, some rarities/unreleased stuff etc. Once you click a song, it'll show the # of alternate versions, disc/track/album, release history (LPs/CDs/year etc) & lyrics. Many are linked to YT videos also.

Re: "they just tore the place up. I have never heard music that so suits the drunken state as the Doors live."...it's their mojo & mix, the keyboards/organ especially, puts you in a quasi-trance if/when you're receptive to it.

In recent years I've found numerous unreleased/very rare Doors on YT. I haven't really delved into the posthumous LP's. There's also a lot of Jim's poetry set to their music (not the mainstream stuff).

The Doors - Carol (live in Detroit)

The Doors - Peace Frog

The Doors - A Feast Of Friends Fun fact: based on Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor, 17th century Italian classical.

Elvis - Something

I saw Pink Floyd on the Wish You Were Here tour in 1975. This was in Hamilton, Ontario. Great, great show. They opened up with Wish You Were Here, took a break, came back, and if I'm not mistaken, performed all or just about all of Dark Side of the Moon!

Regarding Elvis, I treasure that concert immensely! I believe it was something like 5 months or so before he died. He came to my hometown of Rochester, NY. Sadly, this was the later day, bloated Elvis. However, he had moments of brilliance. That guy could do anything with his voice: country, rock, gospel. Just incredible! Last piece of memorabilia: the day that Elvis died, I was at a concert in Rochester seeing Linda Ronstadt and she announced it to the audience!

I saw Nirvana once at this little dump called the Cattle Club in Sacramento, before they got famous.

Didn't really hear anything I liked. Even after they got famous I was like "what is it anyone hears in these guys?" Then the dude did the ultimate career ending move that makes you famous and the rest is history.

@Valeswood

Another impressive list. I love Peter Gabriel's 1st 4-5 solo LP's & Lamb Lies Down (Genesis yrs), but I could never get into the PG era of Genesis, despite trying. I bought all the LP's, used & in Mint condition for $20, was so excited, got home, played them (sampled each song) & could barely get through 1 complete song per LP, yet I love PG's voice. I think b/c it was too random, kinda like eclectic jazz (way over the top) & I don't even like normal jazz. Conversely, Collins is ok, but I like the Collins era Genesis stuff through ~84ish. What can you recommend for original/PG era Genesis? Maybe a Greatest Hits of P.G. era?

I also like Bowie's LP's through ~84/85, but love Ziggy Stardust & Diamond Dogs LP's, yet I can't get into his Live LP's. I've seen him in '90, excellent show. What can you recommend for live (70s) Bowie? (someone posted a Bowie live in '74 iirc here & it just didn't do it for me)

You're probably aware, but make sure to check out 'The High Numbers' on YT...it's The Who (july 64-Oct 64) before they were The Who. I posted a video in a prior post in this thread. (Ooh Poo Pa Doo & Gotta Dance To Keep From Crying). Live at the Railway Hotel is the complete show.

Kevin

The PG era Genesis can be a bit difficult to get into sometimes due to the length of the songs but well worth the effort. Supper’s Ready at 23 minutes is an absolute prog rock masterpiece! Probably the most accessible LP is Selling England By The Pound but if you prefer live recordings as an introduction, I can upload Live At The Felt Form (1973) which contains most of Selling England and Six Of The Best to WeTransfer which gives a very good overview of the PG era apart from there is no Watcher Of The Skies.

Bowie? I love all his 1970 live albums! If you like the Ziggy era, then Santa Monica 72 is the one. There are 3x 1974 live albums which are all different in their own way but the real deal is Live at Nassau Coliseum 1976.

Thank you for the heads up with The High Numbers, I hadn’t seen that before.

Thanks for the offer, I may take you up on that Genesis in the future. I'll give them a listen on YT/other sources & see if "it clicks" this time. It was early '00's when I initially sampled all the PG era LPs so maybe I'll perceive them differently now. As far as Prog. Rock, Yes is my #4 rated band, so I'm no stranger to long (seemingly drawn out to the average listener) songs (masterpieces). The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is by far my favorite Genesis album, so I'm not sure why the other PG era albums didn't jive.

I've got a few Bowie '76 Nassau Col. songs in my library...I'll have to go back & listen to the whole album.

You've just entered The Twilight Zone, and the next thing you know you're at a two week long music festival that includes performances by ever band and musician listed in this thread...maybe it's a three week festival...
I'd really look forward to seeing The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers (w/Duane), Muddy Waters, Bob Marley, and quite a few others that I never had the opportunity to see before...
