All-Star Jam Posted by Mr. Moderator Jun 152011 What makes you sentimental? Men in brightly colored slacks playing Maj7 chords get me every time! 15 Responses to “All-Star Jam” tonyola says: 06/15/2011 at 5:53 pm I think what gets me is the spaniel-ears haircut he wore later on along with the receding hairline and shades. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/515Z1ntTAhL._SS500_.jpg “Sentimental Lady” is a pretty bland song but I will say that most of the Fleetwood Mac albums he appeared on (Future Games through Mystery to Me in particular) were pretty decent. Maybe not as stirring as the Buckingham-Nicks Fleetwood but pleasant listening nonetheless. 0 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 06/15/2011 at 7:55 pm What the heck show was this? Mick F on drums, Christine M on BU vox — huh? 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 06/16/2011 at 12:33 am A cameraman tells his story of filming the return of Brian Wilson to the Beach Boys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-BvAyWaEaY 0 High Five jungleland2 says: 06/16/2011 at 8:53 am They sound very under-rehearsed. Maybe the studio version is just so damn smooth that any live take is going to sound rough around the edges. This is a song that I like the studio production of much better than the actual song itself and this is proof. Mick looks pretty bored. I’d like to see this song done by a heavy group (Faith No More?) There was a band that did Summer Breeze as a 90’s grunge / thrash song that kinda worked. I’m sure my friends in Yacht Rock do this song. 0 High Five Oats says: 06/16/2011 at 9:13 am Attention Mr. Mod! http://thequietus.com/articles/06436-metallica-and-lou-reed-collaborate 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 06/16/2011 at 9:33 am Totally! j2 just tuned me into this as well with his newsflash. 0 High Five funoka says: 06/16/2011 at 11:37 am Christine McVie gets me all nostalgic. I like some of her 2004 solo album “In the Meantime” She turns 68 next month! 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 06/16/2011 at 11:48 am I had no idea Buffalo Springfield was actually reuniting and touring until Townsman plugdin sent me the following link: http://www.twentyfourbit.com/post/6506764683/watch-buffalo-springfield-rock-bonnaroo-mr I’ll take Buffalo Springfield over any of their harmony-singing, Cali-based contemporaries. 0 High Five Oats says: 06/16/2011 at 12:10 pm My wife was very surprised that I expressed zero interest in this tour. I explained that, of the band members, I only care for Neil and I’m not even that interested in seeing him at this point. If he brought back Crazy Horse, maybe. If I had a time machine and could go back to, say, 1976, then definitely. 0 High Five jungleland2 says: 06/17/2011 at 9:12 am I am very excited about this show. I only know their Best Of LP (my dad played this all the time when I was a kid) and I just picked up their three studio releases. In a strange way it’s a “new” band for me since I am hearing most of this music (save the 10 songs on the best of) for the 1st time this week. 0 High Five misterioso says: 06/17/2011 at 2:47 pm I was never a big fan of Sentimental Lady. But Ebony Eyes, on the other hand…much better. Loving this clip (again, with portions of Fleetwood Mac dropping in), which I had never seen until a couple of minutes ago… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nX_N2WxFDC0 All sorts of clips from Cal Jam 1&2 on youtube. Where’ve I been that I’ve never seen these? Mod’s hero Frank Marino played Cal Jam 2. Here he is, doing–go figure!–Purple Haze. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg7DKZ8_sYE 0 High Five BigSteve says: 06/20/2011 at 11:21 am Folks here may be interested in an extensive interview with friend of the Hall Martin Belmont: http://jeffcramer.blogspot.com/2011/04/very-candid-conversation-with-martin.html 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 06/20/2011 at 11:41 am Thanks for passing along that link. That was on my To Do list, but getting shoved back by old-fashioned work requests. Did you see that Andrew Bodnar, I believe, is in your profession? I smell a groundbreaking rock-librarian crossover interview, BigSteve, and you’re the man to do it! (Maybe our resident Rock Psychic will want to contribute as well.) 0 High Five BigSteve says: 06/20/2011 at 12:39 pm I did see that, but I don’t want to know about a library that won’t give one of its librarians a couple of days off to go play bass in New York. 0 High Five mockcarr says: 06/21/2011 at 2:02 pm Ray Davies makes me sentimental. Happy 67th, Ray. Here’s to having the longest birthday possible, I had a girlfriend like that. 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
