Blind Faith

especially enjoying this one (as I write -- they both before my time, knew the names but hadnt heard either of them).


EDIT// here's another great version (eletrical) of the great "Can't Find My Way Home", needs a bit of volume if possible :-)
Blind Faith - Can't Find My Way Home (Unreleased Electric Version - 1969 Stereo)

@Tom glad you enjoy BF.  Way home was my favorite track also.  Sea of Joy coming in second.  I had the Gold CD of this album.  The gold was a bit of a marketing gimmick.  But they did master them better.  Sp the sound was genuinely improved.  I saw Traffic live at UMass Amhearst one time.  It was a wild evening.  We did get in for free but nobody warned us that this was accomplished by people pushing the crowd into the storm fences.  It took all my strength to keep my feet.  Otherwise I would have been trampled.  They had a couple of ambulances standing by.  I guess this was a regular weekend event at the school.

Also on the program was impressionist David Frye who was famous for his deadly impression of then President Lyndon Johnson.  Strange night.  Luckily none of us sustained injuries.  :)

Traffic? Blind Faith? Awesome!

Let's not leave out Spooky Tooth and Mad Dogs & Englishmen if we're gonna cruise the vinyl racks.  8)

It wouldn't have been the counter culture without the airplane.  :)

Here's a nice version of White Rabbit from Mayssa Kaara:

Thanks for sharing the Karina Wipper video -- I *really* liked her take on the song -- very nice.

And so now here's my favorite:

Sort of getting into the guitar solo thing :p only kidding -- it's not my first port of call -- but I did [start to] grow up in the 70's so heard a fair bit... Not so much a fan of 'Mayall et. al.', but like a lot of what I've heard from Cream:



Cream - Spoonful live version from a concert in Detroit, 1967

I like the MayAll blues guitar stuff.  But his harmonica work is better.  Of course for all time guitar nobody tops Hendrix in my book.  Aside from the fuzz box and wah wah pedal stuff he had this poly-rhythmic thing going where he would accompany himself on the solos, live.  I don't think necessarily a lead guitar solo has to be fast or wild.  A lot of my friends were not impressed with the Traffic Low Spark guitar work.  But I liked it.  It was like the individual bent notes were funky even though not played in a bunch.

B.B. King was another style.  Even though what he played was not technically difficult, he had such a feeling to it that it captured your attention.  Made the guitar talk as they say.  But Eric Clapton is definitely not boiled spinach either.  :)

@Mouser - Exceptionally nice! (But maybe a little too much reverb IMO.)

Phil Woods and Herbie Mann

@Miles - Thx for that one. I've been a big fan of Herbie Mann since I was about 7 years old.

Here's a blast from the 70s. A relatively obscure San Francisco band (with a big following) by the name of Cold Blood performing You Got Me Hummin' and I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free courtesy of Last Days at the Fillmore documentary. Lydia Pense and her cohorts filling in a little bit of the huge gap left behind by Big Brother and the Holding Co. and Janis Joplin's untimely demise.

Big Momma Thornton - Hound Dog

She also wrote Ball and Chain of Janis Joplin fame.  I saw her live in Boston back in the day.  She played the drum kit, blues harp, and sang(but not all at once.)  Quite a show.
