You gotta love The J Geils Band. Peter Wolf, the quick witted lead singer. Magic Dick tears it up on the harmonica. And the rest of the band pulls it all together into a power house, or powder keg. Being from Boston, my home town, I grew up listening to them. Peter Wolf was a DJ on the best rock station in New England WBCN. Which I just recently found out no longer rules the air waves. It's kinda sad that BCN is done. They to me represented what real rock radio was about. No play lists, and foul mouthed DJ's whacked out on god knows what. This is an FM recording live at the Fillmore East. It sounds great, and the band plays some real gems. So, light one up, and start tearing up the carpet.

This is a great sounding audience recording from Thursday night. Paul McCartney at Fenway Park Boston, MA. Recorded From Section A4 Row 11 by Flying Gonz & Daughter. I just want give a big thanks for recording and sharing this with us. You did a wonderful job. From the videos that I've seen so far from this show, Paul doesn't hold back. He's got pyrotechnics, huge video screens, tons of lights, lazers and fireworks. Quite an amazing concert. People got a full on show with over 30 songs and 2 encores. Check it out.

Good news for all you Tropicália fans. Not only will the Os Mutantes be releasing a new album. We will also get a tour to back it. Its been over 35 years since they have released new music. The album titled Haih or Amortecedor should be out the first week of September, on the Anti- record label. The tour will start at the end of August in Los Angeles. I hope to see some of you in Atlanta at the Variety Playhouse. If you haven't heard them live before, you can check them out here: The Os Mutantes Live in Seattle, WA 2006-07-26. This was the first tour they ever did in The United States. This is definitely something exciting to look forward too.

OK, first off this is supposedly the earliest known soundboard recording of Led Zeppelin. They are the supporting act for Country Joe and The Fish at The Fillmore West, San Fransisco. Taj Mahal was the opening act. To me it's kinda of a weird pairing of bands, but hell I like them all. The Country Joe portion of this concert is officially released. I have it, and really enjoy the album. Comparing the official release of Country Joe and this soundboard of Led Zeppelin. The sound is pretty damn good. It just doesn't have that extra mastering polish. Either way it's a must have for all die-hards, and everyone else. I don't consider myself to be a die-hard, and I love this recording.

Here is some amazing sounding psychedelic country rock. The New Riders of the Purple Sage opened for The Grateful Dead at the Boston Music Hall. This was a mind blowing night. If you don't have The Dead portion of this show, I highly recommend it. With the recent passing of John "Marmaduke" Dawson, I thought this would be a great show to remember his talent by. This soundboard recording comes from Jerry Moore, who also passed away in June. Jerry Moore is well known in the Dead community, for his amazing concert recordings. Both of these guys are greatly missed. Fortunately for us, their psychedelic contributions will be cherished for many years to come.
