  1. Just wondering if there are any Robert Cray fans here. Heard an amazing song off of his Strong Persuader album called "I Wonder" and I was wondering if there exist any live versions of it. None of the shows I'm seeing from that era have that song on the setlist. Did he specifically never play that song live? Thanks to anyone with info on this.
  2. That's great stuff, thank you. I'll have to look out for that one.
  3. So I just stumbled across an article which talked about how Derek and the Dominos were working on a new album just before they split up. Is it known how far they were on this? I know at least "Got to Get Better in a Little While" was already cut and appeared on some later Eric Clapton cd. Have any more of these songs been released, either on bootleg studio tracks, or officially?
  4. I couldn't figure out how to listen to the single, but I did hear some of his album...that stuff is great, thanks!
  5. Haha, well not metal as in today's standards, but I don't know how else to describe that typical 80's sound with the loud bass drum and heavy guitar riffs.
  6. What happened to the J. Geils band during the 80s?? My entire life I've completely written them off after hearing "Centerfold" and "Love Stinks"; I thought they were just another crappy 80's metal band. But after hearing some of their early 70's stuff, "Whammer Jammer," "Hard Driving Man," etc., and even a lot of blues stuff, it seems like they were a great band back in the day. What happened to them? Why did they decide to completely change their sound to sound like every other 80's band? Did their lineup change or anything? Or was it just the changing times?
  7. I've been out of the Zeppelin loop for a bit now, and I just popped in to listen/watch some of the videos on the site. I ended up stumbling across this 8mm footage of the boys live on their first American tour at the Filmore?? When did this footage come out? This is golden, groundbreaking! Why would anyone be taping some random band who happened to be opening for Iron Butterfly?
  8. Haha wow, thanks for the eye-opener. Sounds like there's a whole world out there I was not aware of. Comes out to about $250 a show...guess I'll stick with the electronic way. Also, in response to the earlier comment, I don't really see anything wrong with buying bootleg vinyl records at this point. I could see back in the '70s, if the bootleg companies were trying to rip everyone off and get wealthy illegally off of Zeppelin's fame. But now that the bootleg companies are no longer making records, it's only the record store owners who are making a profit, and you would have to think that any owner who cared enough to even seek out bootlegs would not be trying to turn too high of a margin on their bootleg sales. Of course, what do I know...I'm sure most people on this board have more knowledge on this topic than I do...so you could be completely right.
  9. I would think it would decrease the value, since it's so easy to hear the actual music. But I guess you, Evster, and reswati are correct. The only people who would actually buy the vinyl bootlegs nowadays are collectors, and so this allows the bootleg companies to see the discs as "collectors items," and thus charge ridiculous amounts. Actually, after reading your guys' replies, the investor in me wonders if their value will skyrocket in the coming years, now that less and less actual bootlegs vinyls actually remain in circulation. But I don't think I'd feel too good about making money off of exploiting LZ's success...
  10. After a long search, I finally found a record shop that is shady enough to sell underground material; namely bootleg concerts and studio outtakes. I was so excited to finally get my hands on one of these bootleg vinyls, but then I saw the price. These records are going for upwards of $45! And I'm no expert on bootleg companies, or anything related to the business, but these were extremely partial recordings; I think the most complete show was about half of the "Bonzo's Birthday" (May 31, 1973) release. Are these releases really worth between $45-$200 to people? And are they this expensive everywhere you go?
  11. Yeah thanks, I definitely need to get my hands on a few of those later albums. I always thought the pinnacle of Muddy's career was between the late 40s-mid 50s, but I'm now discovering that his later albums with Johnny Winter are actually just as good, or better.
  12. Oh yes, thank you...that is by far one of my favorite live albums ever released. That version of Got My Mojo Working is definitely the highlight, and it is just perfect. Thanks for that clip too, I love how he starts tapdancing towards the end there
  13. On Miley Cyrus: "She’s had an album released as both herself and Hanna Montana, and unlike Carter, both albums debuted at number one on the Billboard 100! In America, that gives her an honor held by Michael Jackson, Metallica, The Beatles, and even Pink Floyd!" Haha, this is so true. I always just thought of the pop sensations as culturally irrelevant to anyone over the age of 11. I've never put it into a perspective like that. And after I read this, I can't help but agree with him: "How could allow that to happen?" Although, to be honest, I'd have to say the same about Michael Jackson and Metallica.
  14. Oh wow, thanks for that, I can't believe I haven't come across that yet. How would you compare it to Breakin it Up & Breakin it Down? Is it as good?
  15. I came across the 1977 (I think) cd "Breakin' it up, Breakin' it Down" a few years ago, which is a concert from Muddy Waters' new-look 1977 band (with Johnny Winter, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, etc.) Ever since then, I have been looking for more live material from this band. Does anyone know if any other live audio or video recordings of this band exist, bootleg or official? On a different note, I strongly encourage any blues fan to buy this CD immediately. It merges delta-style blues, chicago-style blues, and Johnny Winter electric-style blues into a sound that is just unbelievable.
