Rubycon (Side 2)

Rubycon (Side 2)

by Tangerine Dream

I know it's been a few weeks since I've posted. However, I've recently learned that the mainstay of Tangerine Dream, Edgar Froese died of a pulmonary embolism on the 21st of January. As a tribute, I'm Jamming (IMO) one of his finest moments. R.I.P. Edgar

Voyage

Voyage

by Family

The best track (IMO) from their debut album "Music in a Doll's House". The entire album is peppered with gems. Roger Chapman (along with Pavlov's Dog's David Surkamp) have the most distinctive voices in rock - bar none!

Voodoo Chile

Voodoo Chile

by Jimi Hendrix

The best blues I have ever heard! I've never been much of a blues fan, but this blasts you into orbit around the Crab Nebula! Mitch Mitchell on drums, Stevie Winwood on Hammond organ and (I think) Noel Redding on Bass.

Living In The World Today

Living In The World Today

by The Neutrons

The Neutrons were a spin-off from the magnificent Man band of South Wales. They were originally formed by the late Clive John when he left the Man Band, and (probably as a joke) first called them Iowerth Pritchard and the Neutrons! The band also had Will Youatt and Phil Ryan, who would all re-join Man.

Live at the Met (Excerpt)

Live at the Met (Excerpt)

by Robin Williams

My first non-musical Jam (and it won't be the last). The full version of this, plus the stuff he did on "Mork & Mindy" is (in my view) the best he ever did. He was, first and foremost, a stand-up comedian - his improvisational skills were second to none. The acting was secondary, though it paid more. Na-nu, na-nu. R.I.P.

I'd Rather Be the Devil (live)

I'd Rather Be the Devil (live)

by John Martyn

The version of this I posted before was from TOGWT, but THIS version is utterly brilliant. Backed by Double Bass (Danny Thompson) and Drums (Terry Cox???), this is the best recorded version I know, but which ORIGINAL album did it come from? The Wikipedia entry is wrong, as someone has noted - that someone being me!

Spunk Rock

Spunk Rock

by Man

When this track first saw the light of day, the record company (Pye) took one look at the title and ordered the band to censor it. So they called it "Spunk R**k"! Only 1500 copies of this album were ever pressed - and I've got one of them! This gig also had the version of "Silver Machine" that launched Hawkwind.

Baba O'Riley

Baba O'Riley

by The Who

The cover of "Who's Next" (from which "Baba O'Riley" is culled) shows the band walking away from a block of concrete that they have used as a urinal. Originally, they wanted to show a big stack of Marshall amps in place of the concrete, but lawyers decided otherwise! Bloody lawyers!
