    You'll be glad you did. Netflix has it too.
    Last year PBS rebroadcast the best of the 1969 "Johnny Cash Show" and Carl was on there just having a great time ....He made Clapton look like a cardboard cutout. (which didnt seem hard to do - even when he was in Traffic , Eric was considered a weak singer)

    Carl & Jerry Lee was a rockin' combo too, man , a lot of energy there.

    Dropped D is ok. Eddie Van Halen has been using it for years. Drop Dead Legs, Unchaned etc etc.

    But loose the Cookie Monster!

    Smokable stuff indeed. When I stopped smoking pot I lost all interest in Pink Floyd. But not in Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis and Little Richard.

    Telegraph Road - Dire Straits

    I still use it as the "demo" song for my system when I have visitors (well, unless it's a substantially older crowd e.g., my grandparents in which case I just throw on a Diana Krall SACD at a suitable volume .)

    "Wonderland" by Big Country. Uniquely for me, I like the extended version even better. The rare song that is perfect in everything. Idea, execution, vocal, all instruments firing on all cylinders, silence as well as sound. Put together perfectly.

    Their rhythm section was as good as any that ever played, and Stuart Adamson is very much missed by me as well. Another UK lost soul who came to America and died alone. Props to Bruce Watson as well.

    Only one song from the Greatest Rock & Roll Band ever.

    "Jumpin' Jack Flash"-The Rolling Stones

    If you need a hot cover then Johnny Winter And-Live.

    Period.

    Not me. I just picked up an album I'd almost forgotten about, from my "hazy" period in the early to mid '70s: Umagumma. It's a 2-CD set, one live and one studio. To be sure, you almost HAVE to be on dope to really "appreciate" the studio CD (as in, "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict"). Or at least it takes some getting used to; just turn all the lights off with only your audio equipment lights on, sit back and enjoy.

    But the live CD still sounds terrific even when all brain synapses are functioning, including such classics as "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun", Astronomy Domine", "Careful with that Ax Eugene" and "A Saucerful of Secrets". Pink Floyd was pioneering space rock with albums like this (and later, with Meddle) and even though it might not be to everyone's taste, it was very creative work.

    However, for true hard rock which sounds best through vintage JBLs, I'd have to go with the more traditional stuff, like White Room (Cream), Dazed and Confused (Zep), Moodies, and live Who all of which have already been mentioned along with some other very good suggestions.

    HEY, MIKE!!

    I resemble that remark, Lad!! I am listening to some fine Diana Krall, right now, and loving it! At 59, I may well be as old as your grandparents, too!

    But, as I former pro musician, for almost 30 years, I have a fairly eclectic taste in music, and like quite a few different styles. Hate rap, and not much into the most screaming of the Heavy Metal stuff. Other than that, I am open to most anything, and have a large music library, with all ends of the musical spectrum pretty well covered. But, ahhhhhhh, Diana Krall!! Oh, yeah, I like that. The bass player she has is absolutely great. Sounds fine on the new sub and the 4411's! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc (as old as the hills.... which "are alive with the sound of music"!!)
    The only thing that can never be taken away from you, is your honor. Cherish it, in yourself, and in others.

    LOL Doc! Actually, I am very much enamored with Ms. Krall, and have most of her albums. Even more appealing is that many are available on SACD or DVD-A, with marvelous recording quality.

    Like you, I enjoy a wide variety of musical genres, with jazz being one of my favorites for "serious" listening.

    And at 59, you're almost exactly the age of my parents - hardly my granparents who (those that are fortunately still with us) are all in their 80's, God love them.

    As a pro musician, what did you perform?

    All the best,
    - Mike

    I recall a major Detroit radio station had a countdown several years back of what they considered the greatest R & R songs - No. 1 was:

    Day in The Life - Beatles


    Now as to my own vote - I'm surprised this one hasn't been mentioned - one of the most recognized & popular opening guitar riffs and always brings the house down when performed live:


    JOHNNY B. GOODE - Chuck "Duck Walker" Berry!
