This'll Burn Off Some Of That Turkey

I was lucky as a teen and young adult (long phreakin ago), like you Howdians in Santa Cruz still are . . . Winterland, Fillmore West, Avalon Ballroom, Playland and Chet Helms, Barney Steele's in Redwood City, Circle Star Theatre, Keystone Berkeley and Palo Alto . . . lots of music everywhere in them days!

We had our horn groups. Tower Of Power, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood. Sons Of Champlain . . . . Even saw the original Chicago Transit Authority with Boz Scaggs (I'll Be Long Gone album time) one night. Both bands with great horns! Not sure, but I'd bet TOP was the horns for Boz Scaggs. By the time he finished Loan Me A Dime and closed with I'll Be Long Gone . . . whew, not a dry eye in the place.

Blues was all around too . . . I saw Butterfield, Bishop and Bloomfield one night, each with their own groups with a jam after . . . that was kewl. Also from Chicago and moved to the west coast and SF was Nick Gravanites, from Kooper and Bloomfields short lived Electric Flag. GREAT singer!!! Ole Nick dropped in, like Elvin and the TOP did, on everyone's set it seemed . . .

But this clip of Southside Johnny, his Asbury Jukes, and The Boss from '78 rivals anything I ever saw. It rocks, it's 8 minutes and more long, and what the hell, it's SO fine horns and all . . . they do it club style from New Jersey . . . and it's solid!

Kudos to TalkLeft Politics and Jeralyn for finding it . . . damn this is tasty! *G*

Turn it up loud. *G*

Just Saw This, Never Seen It-IGBOBLAB

Steve Martin looks like he's gonna explode from both the pressure and the pure phreakin joy of the music these folks put out.

Incredible sound . . . just incredible.
