  1. Cool! Weird how it looks like they're all jammed together, almost like they're the opening band or something.
  2. So I went to see a friend's band last Friday night, and since it wasn't wall-to-wall people or anything, I didn't wear my mask. I am fully vaccinated by the way. Well, what do you know, I caught covid. I was down for the count yesterday, it kicked my ass. Feeling a bit better today. Just wear your mask people, stay safe
  3. Haha! Now THAT was bad! Like Mr. Burns said "We did twenty takes and THAT was the best one!"
  4. What, you mean playing those? I can't play either one (yet, anyway), but I do love both songs.
  5. Jonny The Bends These Are My Twisted Words - I figured this out on guitar recently and just can't stop playing it, it's just so cool and weird, I love it
  6. That's correct, Elf and ELO. Well, although just an okay recording, and it does have some cuts, there's enough there that proves it indeed WAS an excellent night for DP MK III
  7. For over forty years I've been searching for a bootleg of Deep Purple at the Long Beach Arena from November of '74. I was at this show and always considered it to be one of the best shows I've ever seen. Well, I finally found it. I downloaded it last night, I will listen when I get home. I'm sure it will be anti-climactic, right? Still...I haven't had this giddy feeling of FINDING something in a long time. I still remember when I found Led Zeppelin LA '71, same thing, just YES! VICTORY! haha The search was always part of the fun. I do hope it lives up to my memories. Hopefully it's not an awful recording. We'll see. I will report back with my review. Another thing I want to find is Jaco Pastorius at the Beverly theater 1983. I've heard there is a recording, I just haven't seen it. This one is kind of the opposite - "was it really as BAD as I remember?"
  8. Awesome!! Still wanna hear that '71 Hawaii show, despite the poor review
  9. The fuck up on Moby Dick is startling....Is Bonzo getting pranked by the band here? He does the whole drum intro (post solo) and they don't come in. Reminds me of that time they left Plant hanging on IMTOD, also a '75 show. Mistakes? Maybe. But It got me thinking they might pull stuff like this on each other just for fun
  10. Well, they played all originals at the UFO show. They played there quite a bit, so these could be two different gigs or "pt. 1 and pt. 2" of the same gig. I'd have to listen, so many of these have wrong info on them.
  11. That's not the UFO show, there's no recording of that one (that I'm aware of). This is earlier, but same place (Golden West Ballroom)
  12. Indeed I was! What a show, one of my all time faves. Here's a few pics
  13. I was at that one too. Tommy Castro opened up. So basically, every concert I went to, Strider was there lurking somewhere, haha. Maybe sitting right in front of me, who knows 😄
