I did a deep dive into my CD collection tonight. I don’t buy CDs anymore. I haven’t purchased one in a few years, and it was a Melvins CD, since they rarely release on LP. The first hour has some delightful genre-busting “album cuts” for your edification. The second hour, as promised, is my weekly live music feature. Just take a look at the playlist below for track, artist, date and location.
I heard that Gregg Allman is cancelling his entire 2017 tour. Hopefully his health isn’t that poor. In any case I pulled out a tasty treat from the famous Fillmore East run in March 1971. There’s also a rare Jack Bruce/Robin Trower cover of a Cream song. I think you’ll agree that Trower give Clapton a run for his money here.
I close the show with a track that is 51 years old this week. The Grateful Dead played the third Acid Test in Los Angeles on March 12, 1966. This Viola Lee certainly sounds lysergic-inspired. You tell me.
