  1. I really really want to see Winter live sometime, but he keeps picking venues that are obscure enough that I can't go (I have no car). Fall River, MA? Why not Boston? Woonsocket, RI? Why not Providence? It's really annoying.
  2. Sweet! I'll be picking up the DVD for sure. As somebody who saw him in November, I have to say that I can't wait. NEW LIVE! ALBUM FROM BLUES GREAT B.B. KING SPOTLIGHTS CLASSICS AS WELL AS SONGS NEVER BEFORE RECORDED BY THE KING OF THE BLUES It has been estimated that blues great B.B. King has played more than 10,000 shows in a career spanning nearly 60 years. Whenever the King of the Blues has carried his venerable guitar Lucille onto any stage at any time, the performance has become an unforgettable classic--and on occasion has been immortalized on some of the greatest live albums ever issued. Yet in 2006, he marked a first when he recorded a live album at two of his own clubs, B.B. King's Blues Club in Nashville, Tennessee on October 26/27 and in Memphis on October 29/30. The best of these memorable concerts are now presented in both the DVD and CD formats as LIVE! (Geffen/UMe), released February 19, 2008. For the two-hour-plus DVD, the concerts were taped in high definition video and mixed in 5.1 Surround. Bonus material includes a behind-the-scenes “making of” feature and a special message from King to his fans. To fit on a single CD, the audio disc features 12 of the DVD’s 18 songs. On LIVE!, backed by his remarkable touring band, B.B. lays down quintessential performances from his signature tune “The Thrill Is Gone” to “When Love Comes To Town,” the song that introduced him to a new generation in the late 1980s, to Big Bill Broonzy’s “Key To The Highway,” for which he teamed with disciple Eric Clapton in 2000. He also performs a pair of songs he has never before recorded--the standards “You Are My Sunshine” and “When The Saints Go Marching In.” B.B.’s band opens the show on the DVD sans King with “Manhattan Blues” and “Two I Shoot.” During the concert, the musical icon revives his ‘50s and ‘60s R&B hits “Rock Me Baby,” “Don’t Answer The Door” and “Why I Sing The Blues” plus other B.B. gems from that era such as “A Whole Lot Of Lovin’,” “Ain’t That Just Like A Woman,” “Bad Case Of Love,” “I Need You So,” “Darling, You Know I Love You” and “All Over Again.” Along with the early ‘70s hit “Guess Who” is “Blues Man” from the late ‘90s. King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, becoming one of the first artists so honored. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked him #3 among the “100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time.” In 2006, he was presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest honor awarded to a civilian; his 1964 album Live At The Regal was voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame; and he won his 14th Grammy Award, for Best Traditional Blues Album for B.B. King & Friends: 80, which celebrated his 80th birthday the previous year. He has won eight previous Grammys in that category and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. “The Thrill Is Gone” is also in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Whether live at the Regal, San Quentin, the Apollo, or a B.B. King’s Blues Club, B.B. King rules over the blues.
  3. You don't respect Stevie Ray Vaughan? Peter Green is one of my favorite guitar players of all time. Does anybody know where I can get Live in Boston Volume 3?
  4. I've been on an Allman Brothers binge lately. The Allman Brothers Band - Atlanta International Pop Festival (too lazy to write out the entire name of the album, it's huge) The Allman Brothers Band - At Fillmore East (no words to describe it) The Allman Brothers Band - Idlewild South (worth it for Hoochie Coochie Man alone)
  5. I love Robby and I think he's one of the most underrated guitar players around. I had the pleasure of seeing him earlier this year on the Experience Hendrix tour, and he had an absolutely scorching solo on Red Hose. Too bad Buddy Guy didn't play with him; that would truly be something special. I'm not a fan of the whole "best of" stuff, as I don't really like compilations, but I do love the Doors' Bright Midnight Archive collection. There's some really good stuff that they're digging up (Live in Detroit is one of the best full concerts that I've heard, hands down), but I agree that the best of releases are getting old.
  6. They just finished up their last tour in October. Last for me was B.B. King. Simply fantastic.
  7. Hey, if you like Peter Green you should check out the album "A Hard Road" by John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. Great album, featuring Green on the guitar.
  8. Machine Gun beats just about everything ever made. Red House is one of the best blues songs of all time. Voodoo Chile is up there as well. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) has fantastic guitar work Foxy Lady is a classic Manic Depression really speaks to people Little Wing was brilliantly composed Hey Joe was the song that got him to the spotlight, and deservingly so The Star Spangled Banner performance at Woodstock is one of the best political statements of all time, if not the best. I'm stopping now because I'd be redundant, not because I ran out. Not to mention that beyond his artistic mastery on the first and last ones on these lists, he was technically brilliant. Could anyone realistically EVER do Machine Gun ever again? I'd have to say no.
  9. He had Rod Stewart for awhile. The version they did of Jailhouse Rock is kickass.
  10. As good as his guitar is, it's his VOICE that really gets me good. Thanks for sharing the videos!
  11. Jimmy was originally commissioned to score the music, but his work was eventually thrown out due to differences between him and the director. There are bootlegs floating around with the real thing, though. Pretty cool stuff.
  12. I like Plant's singing voice more than Jim's, but Jim, in my opinion, is the most creative frontman that has ever performed. Zep hasn't put out a live album that has matched Made in Japan, yet. The performance of Child in Time gives me chills every time.
  13. Well, I suppose I'm just a fan of excess, then. Although I agree with you on No Quarter. Shame it got truncated on the new version.
