Old friend of mine actually used to live in a house in Laurel Canyon with Spirit in the 60’s. Like every member of the band except the one guy who was married and lived nearby. Some fun stories, as one might imagine.

Johnny Echols of Love's B-Day today. Has related he would just drop acid into bandmate Snoopy's cocacola when he felt he was getting too 'uptight'. Those were the days...
  11:01am P-90:

…back when being “too uptight”was a disaster to be avoided at all costs

PG's first solo 45... About leaving Genesis and the rockstar world.
  11:02am P-90:

Yes, it’s a song about leaving a successful band to try a solo career
  11:02am Rick A:

Yeah, Model Shop is great though I wonder if young people today can identify with the male protagonist's angst. I guess his fear of going to Vietnam resonates. It's clearly the model--pun unintended--for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, given the oil refinery in both Brad Pitt's and Gary Lockwood's front yards.

It's a stretch--he wasn't solo--but Gabriel had cut a single two years earlier. He produced and performed, backing up Charlie Drake:

Lots of good reading about Neneh Cherry and Little Solsbury Hill was had because of that set.

P-90 U remember the first Spirit song I heard. Was in mid 90's in a cafe during a high school field trip. I was very excited to hear it and made sure I asked the waitress what was the name of the band on the speakers. Hello DJ Surface Noise with Joe McGasko, nice sounds coming from the speakers right now too!
  11:22am Cassanndra Tolduso:

Wow all thumbs typing in my car (my (no U) Mid 70's field trip.

Hey Cassandra! Careful there in the car!

Thanks DJ JoeG. I have to drive two miles for signal (none at home) I listen on my laptop on the side of the road, using my phone for wifi hub. Never while driving.

Wow, this Janis Joplin track makes me wonder how her sound would have adapted to the 1970s. Never heard her so contemporary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am Handy Haversack:

Great set and show, Joe! Really enjoying it. Have to get out in the sun with the dog (and bring back cat food!). Many thanks!

Later on, Surfactants. Stay on top!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am PigeonsAndRust:

Whoa I had to pull over to check the playlist. This is fascinating
  11:25am Cassanndra Tolduso:

That Todd Rundgren did the engineering might have something to do with that sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wouldn't have guessed Janis & Todd was a thing!
A fairly Nazz-like arrangement & all...
  11:28am Cassanndra Tolduso:

That sure surprised me too Rev Rabbit. Interesting to hear where he took Janis with his wizardry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Todd of course Produced the NY Dolls' debut. Not a total mutual admiration society there - but sure got the job done...

Everytime I hear "Harvest Moon" I'm hearing another song behind it...is it "Walk Right Back" by the Everlys?

Brian that would be so good! Great set Joe, just tuning in ❤️🤍💙

  11:36am Rachel Bo Bachel:

Joe YES was just trying to remember too… and then I was hearing “swinging party” by the replacements and that Frank and Nancy Sinatra song seem musically related too… good for that new sound-Alice’s feature on Wake and Bake!
