Hi Rick,

You are single-handledly turning me into a hopeless Youtube addict. I hope they never come up with a 12-step program! Yes it is a lot of fun to read your posts and you surely have me jonesing for my old vinyl collection, which sits gathering dust at my parents' house. Thanks to you, last time i was there i dug out the fist two Blackfoot albums--No Reservations and Flying High. Do you have them? Great stuff, better IMO than the stuff they did after they got famous. (But that's always the way with me, i prefer them when they are off the radar.) Sat in the Same Old Easy Chair in the living room, put on the headphones, and was a teenager again--that is, until I went to stand up and my knees hurt! Next time i go out there I will box them all up and ship them to CA--you can send records for cheap in the mail, though when I sent my books out here with the Media Mail rate it seemed like the postal service had destroying each and every box as some kind of holy mission. Sheesh!

If you have Blackfoot, will you have to wait to listen til you get through W, X, Y, Z, and A again?

Got you beat on typing--I use three fingers.

Regards,
Richard

Hi Richard,
I didn`t see this when you posted it, in fact I missed it when I posted about John Hiatt below...... I just dug out my only Blackfoot album and am listening to it, before heading back upstairs to resume watching Rory `s Live At Cork Opera House. I like this album. Always liked Rickey Medlock, who was the original Dave Grohl(starting on drums before switching to lead guitar). He`s got great American Indian tattoos too. Most don`t, but I still consider Rickey an ORIGINAL Skynyrd member. On an off comment on a parrallel frontier........my first wife was Blackfoot, and a guy I graduated from high school with married Gary Rossington`s exwife.........now his ex as well........just things that I think of when I hear Blackfoot.

Blackfoot/Marauder/1981

just finished:

John Hiatt/Riding With The King/1983
Saw him a few weeks ago with Lyle Lovett.
Lyle was telling about the first time he saw John(late`70s-early`80s).
At that time John was playing lead guitar in the Ry Cooder band.
Now that`s strong credential right there......playing lead for Ryland Cooder !

Rick you should definitely check out Blackfoot's No Reservations and Flyin' High if you can find them. Great stuff. No Reservations has the song that was Highway Song before there was Highway Song--I Stand Alone--and Flyin High has a few tracks that are just plain scary, they kick serious butt seriously.

Here's some stuff from No Reservations--

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJ9U1NKC ... er&list=UL --the song "Stars" is supposedly about Ricky's feelings about the Skynyrd guys, i imagine he's hoping they've forgotten it!

Lord this all brings back memories...


Love the thought of John Hiatt playing lead for Ry, true enough, you can't ask for much more credibility than that!!!!!!

Gotta quote your whole message, Rick! Yes Carl Radle was one of the greats of the bass guitar. I was never into much post-Cream Clapton, but this record kicks butt and you are right--Delaney and Bonnie and co lit a fire under Slowhand!

Ah... the Mothers.... Mothermania was my soundtrack for a few summer vacations. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant stuff!

Richard

The GFR no-title "Red Album" is so ahead of its time! It's like something produced by Rick Rubin before he was even born--COMPLETELY raw!

Grand Funk`s music is ageless for me Richard........I still just love it !

Just finished listening to:
North Mississippi Allstars/Keys To The Kingdom/2011
This just came in the mail. The picture on the cover is the Wheel Within The Wheel like of Rory`s afterdeath CD. This new release is in memory of the Dickinson brothers` father who passed away before the recording of this album. It is good music with an inspiring message. I highly recommend it. Unfortunately only 11 of the 12 songs on the CD are included on the vinyl. That`s why I love getting a download card with it that has all 12 songs on it. They should have sprung for the second vinyl disc so they could fit it all in. What Were They Thinkin` ?!?! After all, the cost would be passed on to the consumer, and the song they omitted was the song that their father requested them to record......and from his death bed.

Spent the morning checking out Tim and his band(Devils Creek) on youtube, their site and more. VERY SOLID BAND !

Now everyone has left the house and I`m gonna crank up some Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and some Runaways.
Her and Grace Potter are my favorite female rockers to see or hear these days !

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts/Album/1983
