Re: The 1970`s: Can You Dig the Get Down and Boogie, Baby

Looking for obscure late 60s, early 70s albums ( a habit of mIne these days), I came across this one from 1971 by Bolder Damn (great name!). It's not really my kind of music but I was quite taken by what the drummer was doing. Apparently he uses double bass drums with pillows stuffed into them! Love that "bell" sound he gets too. This is the opening track, "Find A Way":

Hard to believe 40 years (today) have passed by since we lost this extraordinarily talented man. RIP Keith.

Track: Keith Moon drum solo 1974.

Lots of great songs in the new BBC drama series Trust, about the Getty family. Here's one from 1972:

This three-song medley used to get played a lot in Paradiso, Amsterdam's "pop temple", prior to concerts. We bought the album after that--the medley still sounds superb. Dig the crazy backing vocals on "Hey Julia"! RIP Robert Palmer and other musical cohorts on the album.

Not a big fan of ELO like many people are. I just don't see it, but hey, different tastes and all. However, this was always my favourite from Jeff Lynne.

It's an odd one for a favourite;

This live version is brilliant. Just listen to the tone on that Gibson, awesome!
