6/03/76 Paramount Theatre What a perfect time to resume their odyssey - it seems I'm always listening to '72, '69, '77 at this time of year, and then this rascal comes along for the old knuckle-curve-splitter!!!
Q107 in Toronto. Anything and everything from 65 to 75.

I keep telling myself that I won't get sucked into another "duets" album, or another "tribute" album, and then I get sucked in anyway. This one is kind of a hybrid of the two, so there's my excuse. And also kind of a self-tribute album, isn't it? Fogerty plays Fogerty, with guest stars? Throwing yourself a fabulous birthday party, so to speak (Happy Birthday, John Fogerty, 3 days late)?
It's hard to beat the songs, though, and these "covers" for the most part sound great.
always nice to see an Izzard quote here Parkas4Kids.
good lad! or lass!
Very recent two-fer reissue of "Cats On the Coast" & "On the Edge" (1977/1978) Spectacular sound! Randall Bramblett played on these records and he's touring now. A curiosity, no?
I just saw on Hittinthenote release info for the 40th anni of Bros & Sistas - take a look at the fourth offering, very nice and a bargain, too.
Don't forget to listen to 5/31/69 - one of the best of the year!!!
1993's "The Yellow Shark." As much as I love Zappa's crazy, zany, and often hilarious studio records, his live orchestral pieces are devastatingly amazing to those with a palette for music that's more than a little ambitious, daring, and downright creative. My copy is actually one of the few remaining original ZFT (Zappa Family Trust) copies before all the rights to Frank's work got bought up by Warner after Ryko collapsed like a flan in the cupboard. I'm truly glad his music is back where it belongs: with the family. Gail Zappa (or gz for short) has done a wonderful job with keeping Frank's memory alive and well with the numerous Vault releases that have come out since his unfortunate death; I just hope his music can find new fans and fanatics amongst this newest, youngest generation of music consumers.
I, for one, will make sure my daughter is given a steady diet of the 'Dead (who she seems to love), Zappa, and all the greats!
