    Smack music. I got up and heard this yesterday morning and had to go back to bed. I was late for work, along with probably every other optician on the planet.

    Not today though...

    Not the best quality video, but this is one of the best songs ever written - Waterloo Sunset by Ray Davies and the Kinks.

    Montrose...What a blast from the past. I saw them in Dallas in the Cotton Bowl July 4th 1975. They were the openers. Also on were The Eagles, Trapeze and the Stones. We were there mostly for the Stones (of course..) but also for Trapeze. They were known for really great live shows...They made a big mistake letting Montrose go before them...

    Nobody there had heard of Montrose, but they blew everyone away! The Eagles hadn't had a lot of radio air around there (yet) at the time, but they were awesome too. "One of These Nights" album had recently been released. They even played a few numbers that would later be on "Hotel California".

    Then came on Trapeze. Oh, the anticipation!...And they sucked! They were out of tune and time on most songs. They were booed from the stage. The Stones were spectacular, as always. But everyone I've talked to that was there agreed, Montrose with Sammy, were the best of the show.

    Some highlights/lowlights from the same concert;


    As if it were Woodstock, there were announcements not to take the "brown" acid...

    It was 104 degree's that day, even hotter on the field. People were passing out right and left. They opened some firehoses at the opposite end of the stadium that everyone crushed to get to..

    Me and a buddy were making and taking bets on which direction people would fall when they passed out. He won the last one when he locked eyes with this girl standing above us. My buddy slowly started to lean to one side, this girl kept following his leaning until she fell down, passed out....

    We has a similar experience with a Jefferson Airplane concert. Their opening act was Iron Butterfly and this was before any station had played In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. They blew everyone away.

    Then came Jefferson Airplane, only without Grace Slick who was reportedly ill. They really sucked and people were walking out before they were even done.

    I had that happen to Yes once. The warm up band was called Gryphon. Nobody had ever heard of them. They came onstage one by one..drummer(oddly standing nearly upright behind his kit)...a bassist...a guitarist..a Rick Wakeman clone keyboardist(who was as good as Rick, also on the recorder)....and a..a..an electric bassoon! WTF??!!
    They started playing and it was magical - the sound was perfect (you could see Eddie Offord at the board), the musicianship was outstanding, and a great time was had by all.
    Then Yes came on and the evening was sorta ruined - their sound was too loud and distorted and rather muddy. Still they put on a great show, but Gryphon stole the show.

    A friend of mine thinks Ray Davies is the rock poet god, has everything he recorded, but I don't remember hearing this one.



    Here's a live version of Waterloo Sunset if you're interested.

    For the most notable newcomer to the thread, who if I remember correctly, reminded me that they were the Iveys before they became Badfinger.

    The Iveys/Badfinger were one of my favorite groups, and sadly one of the most tragic in rock history. Both Pete Hamm and Tom Evans committed suicide.

    Pete Hamm (who was an extremely gifted song writer and singer) wrote 'We're for the Dark' which remains one of my favorite songs of all time.

    To follow up on my previous post, one of the best songs ever written by Pete Hamm of Badfinger was 'Without You' which appears on their No Dice album. However the Badfinger version of that song was overshadowed by the Harry Nilsson cover which was one of the most beautiful songs he had recorded. Here is the Nilsson version.
