My top three

3. Springsteen's first European gig at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, Nov. 18, 1975. Now available on dvd for everyone to enjoy.

2. The Dead and Capt. Beefheart at Bickershaw, England, May 6-7, 1972. A night and day when music transcended the elements.

1. Little Feat - Jan. 19, 1975 Rainbow Theatre, London. Their only show in London on the Warner Bros. tour that also featured the likes of Orleans and Tower of Power, with The Doobies as headliners at every show.

Clearly, no one at Warner Bros. realized that there was a substantial and fanatical cult following for the Feat, and heads subsequently rolled as a result of this major fuck up. The sold out Rainbow turned out to be packed for at least 90% by us Feat freaks - the band never knew what hit them as they stepped out to open for the Doobies. It was an utterly magical vibe, the hall was packed for the opening act, the audience immediately sang along with every song, stayed on its feet and went apeshit after every number, eventually forcing the house lights back down for a third encore. The experience, and the climax - an acoustic Willin' by Lowell - were so intense that people were moved to tears and started leaving by the droves once the Doobies started up, simply because we were utterly drained and because nothing they could do could approach what we had just experienced - a sort of collective mass orgasm.

Sorry (edit)

The above post was copied directly from the festivals web site and I omitted the reference. Sorry 'bout that folks. I'll be looking for this one to add to my collection.

Thanks, William-O

An expanded version of “Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival Chicago” will be available on Rhino Entertainment home video on November 20. A two-disc version of the first Crossroads Guitar Festival, from the Dallas Cotton Bowl, became one of the world’s top-selling music DVDs, going platinum eight times in the United States alone.

Crossroads Guitar Festival, Chicago, 7-28-07

Hands down the best show of this year, and perhaps the best show I've ever seen period. Definitely an Instant Classic: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, BB King, Steve Winwood w/ EC for Traffic reunion, Willie Nelson, Robbie Robertson, Jimmie Vaughn, Hubert Sumlin, and John Mayer just to name a few. What an extraordinary day!

Tomato Can

Tomato Can is a four-piece blues/jazz band featuring 17-year-old guitarist Pat Kane (who's shared the stage with such acts as Johnny Neel and Derek Trucks), keyboardist Mark Bader, and Bassist Jon Pelkey, as well as recently added fourth member, drummer Bill Gardiner. The band's eclectic sound is a mixture of its influences, which include not only blues greats such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters, but also John Coltrane, the Band, and Tom Waits Check um out ! :)

David Bromberg

Just caught Bromberg in Pittsburgh--great show, great musicianship, great audience--well worth the ticket price if you like roots/folk rock. He is a great showman and the shows are just plain fun.
