    The Turtles - The Turtles Present The Battle Of The Bands
    (1968, White Whale)




    A concept album, with the band pretending to be a series of different groups, playing in varying styles from psychedelic "The Last Thing I Remember, The First Thing I Knew" - The Atomic Enchilada, to surf music "Surfer Dan" - The Cross Fires, to bluegrass "Chicken Little Was Right" - Fats Mallard and the Bluegrass Fireball. "Food" - The Bigg Brothers, includes a brownie recipe with a special ingredient. Fun stuff, nice job covering different music styles. The inner gatefold includes pictures of the different bands.

    Stephen Stills - Stephen Stills Live
    (1975, Atlantic)



    recorded March 1974 at Auditorium Theatre, Chicago. includes a version of "Rocky Mountain Way" tucked into a Stephen Stills medley, with some scorching guitar. A nice version of Wooden Ships also on The Electric Side. Playing with Joe Lala, Russ Kunkel, Kenny Passarelli.

    I saw Stills perform a few months later, in August '74. The opening show for the 1974 CSNY reunion tour in Seattle. It was a fantastic show[/URL], they played a 4.5 hour set with 44 songs, ending after 1:30 in the morning. Ticket price? $8.50.

    I don't have that album, I don't know how I missed it. The only time I was at the Auditorium Stills was there then too. The venue was newly restored to its original (perfect) acoustics, a product of Louis Sullivan's engineer partner Adler. The place had been an abandoned wreck for years. It would still be difficult to find a better sounding place to hear music.

    It was CSN&Y and it was the first time they had played in public. Joni Mitchel opened. The next day they played their second gig - Woodstock! I don't remember what I payed, but it wasn't much and their were no corporate sponsors. Those were the days. And very heady times.

    Oh - they were great that night, Joni and the boys. I think we music lovers were born at a great time in history. I hope my kids, now teenagers, will be able to say the same thing.

    earlier...

    Buffalo Springfield - Retrospective - The Best Of The Buffalo Springfield
    (1969, Atco) early 1970s reissue; SD 38-105



    also pictured on the right side is a still sealed copy of the same SD 38-105 reissue that I picked up at a thrift a few years ago. I wonder how short-lived was the label used by Atco for this issue? I don't see it often.


    now...

    J. Geils Band - The Morning After
    (1971, Atlantic) Promo/NFS

    Great story, that Auditorium must have been a nice venue in 1969. Heady times for sure.

    You've seen this clip of Joni, Grace Slick, CSNY, and others from the Airplane on The Dick Cavett Show the day after Woodstock?

    Stephen Stills showing off mud on his jeans from Woodstock. Joni mentions that they played in Chicago on Saturday night (that show you saw), and on Sunday "the boys" went to Woodstock.

    I had seen that clip years ago but forgot about it. Thanks! There is a second clip of him performing "Four and Twenty." Sometimes I forget that Stills is a monstrous talent and think he is just an astonishing talent. Next to Neil Young, he still shines too and that is the highest compliment I can pay a musician. I saw them together once before in Buffalo Springfield; I wish I had caught more CSN&Y concerts. The brass ring for me would have been to see the Tonight's The Night band out somewhere. But I have never been to California and those gigs were low key and stealthy. My chances of talking to Garbo would have been better.

    Stills being nearly destroyed by drugs is one of the most depressing events in music history, as far as I am concerned.

    You've read Shakey, right?

    Sad, but looking back it's amazing how much he accomplished in the 60s and early 70s BEFORE he was 25 years old. in the middle of those times, losing Jimi Hendrix who I have read he was close to, plus having money and rockroll fame poured on him. I have never finished Shakey, that's a good reminder to pick it back up, thanks.
