I'm older than most, younger than many. I was drafted to service and reported to Ft Knox on 8 May 1969. Hendrix played my hometown venue, fairgrounds "coliseum" (or as Zappa called it - a Barn) on 11 May '69. I was very disappointed. No worries, I'll see him when I get out. Of course he died in '70. When I got out I went to every concert I could. There were a slew of mini festivals touring in those days. You could pay 6 or $8 and see as many bands in one day-night. Foghat ELO Chuck Berry Richie Havens Its a Beautiful Day Eric Burdon Ike & Tina Rare Earth BB King Johnny Winter Edgar Winter etc etc. At one such festival early afternoon, outdoors, Louisville '73ish.. (ok I was in a celebratory mood)(and maybe napping) and I hear All Along the Watchtower coming from the stage. My first thought was Jimi recorded. In fact it was Mahogany Rush. I had never heard of them. So few videos made from those days.

one from 2001 - youtube says I can't embed it 'Voodoo Chile Montreal 2001' if it doesn't show up

Here's one, Mark Seymour has been dining out on this song for 35 years. You have no idea how massively popular this song is in Australia to this day.

Good live version with Eddie Vedder 

Ciao

This Steven Stills took me back, sorta before Stills was Stills in a way.  Super Session is a great record.  Groundbreaking fusion IMO.

The original.  Donovan.  Some guitarist upstart, Jimmy Page.

Rather expert thread dredging, there, NEWELL!  :grin:

After Jaap posted this, I got the chance to be there when these guys toured through Nashville. It was frikkn' awesome! I've been a fan of them ever since.

Pretty interesting,  some of the "interpretations" of other music I never liked at the time.

(I jus' wanna apologize for this in advance . . .)

[edit: this is the Ac/DC song I was looking for that , I think, compares with Steve 'n' Seaguls  "Thunderstruck"] . . .

 

I love this one too! Heard both on outlaw country/xm sirrius radio! Really like offbeat interpretations of mainstream music

Just curious if any if you listen to "Live from Here"?  Chris Thile.   It's the show that took over Garrison Keillor's  "Prairie Home Companion" on Saturday late afternoon on many public radio stations.  I'll admit that I don't like it as well as the original but it's still pretty good, certainly more music and much less stories and comedy.  I don't miss it when I am around the radio.

another thread drift has got me thinkin about some country music. I wanted to post "Hickory Wind" by Gram Parsons as covered by BR549, but couldn't find a decent youtube vid. Here's the next best, expertly covered by Keith Richards. Gram Parsons and Richards were friends briefly as Parson's life was cut short, but he's known for having a huge influence on the Stones drift into American country.

K did an incredible job !

It's interesting to watch what people have to do with their faces to perform an accent not their own. When I first moved to the rural US South, my face would ache at the end of the day!  A true South'ner can recite the vowels without moving his face or lips. There is a certain "efficiency" to the speech that oft' leaves out consonants and entire syllables.

I recall the actor, Ricardo Montalban, replying to Johnny Carson asking, ["Spanish sounds like singing to us. What does English sound like to the Spanish?"]

RM: ["It sounds like dogs barking."]

(Obviously, he had not been listening to EmmyLou!) :wub:
