Welcome to the birthday party! Thanks bb! :)

Good morning! Lovin' this Banana stuff and Dillard and Clark!!
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 9:10am Bob Brainen:

Morning All!
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 9:10am Nanker de Tucson:

This Dillard & Clark reminds me of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/4/15 9:12am purpleknif:

Morning Bobert!
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:14am P-90:

Happy Fourth, Bob and everyone. Kicking the show off with a nicely appropriate Americana feel. But I've also been curious to hear if Bob will have any reflections to offer on the occasion of bassist Chris Squire's passing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/4/15 9:16am purpleknif:

No more rain, please, even if it is pennies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/4/15 9:19am Ken From Hyde Park:

Clay Pigeon played some Yes in the second half of his show the other night. www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 9:22am Nanker de Tucson:

Wow! Between the Buttons tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 9:26am JakeGould:

Nice pile of Rolling Stones right here.
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:28am katy:

Sorry to be *that* person, but what advert was this used on?
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:29am Jack:

My favorite Nicky Hopkins song.
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:30am katy:

Oh crikey! It was this one... no wonder I remembered it.. I helped make some of the bunnies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLUAbkRUvVQ
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:34am William:

Cool, Calm & Collected?
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 9:36am Nanker de Tucson:

Didn't Brian Jones play oboe on Dandelion? Pretty sure The Beatles had him play oboe on at least one of their tunes too.
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:38am Jim Duffy:

According to a Lennon interview, Brian Jones played sax on "You know My Name (Look Up the Number)."
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:44am William:

I always thought Yes must've really dug the first C,S&N LP. Similar vocal harmonizing.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 9:53am Bob Brainen:

True dat Jim D.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 9:55am Bob Brainen:

Makes sense William. I think ~everybody~ was blown away by the CSN(&Y) sound. Obviosly they were fans of the "father bands" Byrds/Springfield/Hollies
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:58am Moe:

Early Byrd and Yes fan, but never heard the very first Yes album, found them with Starship Trooper... Byrds cover... Thanks, Bob...
  Sat. 7/4/15 9:59am P-90:

Squire (who had been a kind of "all-star" choir boy in his youth) and Yes lead singer Jon Anderson were both madly in love with that "California" vocal harmony style, from the Beach Boys to the SF folk rockers. Guitarist Stev Howe told me once that fans never guessed that the band which had been the huge-est inspiration to Yes was the Byrds...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/4/15 10:00am Greg from Bloomfield:

Happy 4th, Bob!
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:00am Monstrositor:

Jon Anderson has cited CSN as an influence. You can really hear it on "Yours Is No Disgrace."
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:00am William:

Agreed Bob. You were spot on in with opinions on Yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/4/15 10:02am Ken From Hyde Park:

Well, I think I'll take a chance on the rain holding off for a while and check out the parade in town. Will bring umbrellas, of course. Enjoy the day!
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:09am Moe:

Saw one of their early seventies shows with wake an, buford, etc. Steve Howe had a merry go round guitar rack that he spun mid song for different guitar sounds and effect...
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:12am Monstrositor:

Any cut in a Yes song is making it too short. Also, Peter Banks was still there for Time And A Word. Howe joined after it was recorded, before it was released
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:14am P-90:

Banks is on Time and a Word, The Yes Album is Howe's first.
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:28am Stuart Rose:

A brilliant blend of music, Bob,
That first set was perfect for the Fourth of July. Deep roots of this country's music, founding fathers.

And now, an hour later, we hear a kazoo and some chicken pickin' guitar.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:30am Bob Brainen:

You are correct sir Moe. But isn't that Howe on the cover? That's what I went by. Banks is credited on the back.
Thanks for correction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 10:30am Sean B.:

The Intro to this awesome Kinks tune had shades of Blind Faith...
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:36am Moe:

Credit goes to monstrositor
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:37am Bob Brainen:

Ok, thanks monstrositor.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:42am Monstrositor:

Thanks, Moe, and you're welcome,Bob. Atlantic in the US didn't approve of the original artwork for TAAW, so they just slapped the most recent photo of the group on the front, which had Steve Howe.
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:46am Nardo:

Love this Utopia track!
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:46am SmokinJ:

Now we're talkin'...
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:49am moe:

and thank you for the in depth background on Yes...
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:50am Nanker de Tucson:

Another fine show today, BobB!
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:50am Stuart Rose:

Is it just me, or is Bob, in recent weeks, playing more straight blues than he normally does?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 10:50am dinatekno:

ooohhh, this sounds like Emmitt Rhodes!
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:54am moe:

could never understand Buford saying he left Yes for Crimson for more money, saw the Buford Crimson and they were playing smaller halls than Yes, who were playing MSG size venues...
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 10:56am Bob Brainen:

Stuart I ~think~ I am!
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:57am dennis diken:

nice show Bob!
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:58am P-90:

Thanks, Bob!
  Sat. 7/4/15 10:59am Moe:

Unless he was just a salaried member...
  Sat. 7/4/15 11:00am Moe:

Thanks for the show bob...
