gotdrumz - 4/7/2020 at 02:17 PM

Stephen - 4/7/2020 at 02:49 PM

A trio - not a ďpower trio,Ē just gtr, bs, drms
Formed in 1971, & one of their very first live gigs became their best-known recording -
Sort of obscure I guess, but maybe not


blackey - 4/7/2020 at 03:13 PM

Wow Stephen. I'm stumped. Formed in 1971, 3 piece with guitar, bass and drums....early live show became their best known album and not a power trio.

Was it electric guitar and did they sing?


Stephen - 4/7/2020 at 03:21 PM

They did - hint, by happenstance/lucky circumstances etc, their first live gig, or one of their first, was b4 a full house at Carnegie Hall, where the album was recorded


steved - 4/7/2020 at 03:29 PM

Did the guitar player happen to go by the name of Joe?

James Gang did record an album at Carnegie Hall in 1971, but they formed years before that and are definitely a power trio


Stephen - 4/7/2020 at 03:50 PM

My info is bad, itís not their 1st album, & they formed b4 1971
Itís Glass Harp, Live at Carnegie Hall - fronted by the great guitarist Phil Keaggy

As I thought about it they had to have been formed b4 Ď71
Word back in the day, true or not who knows, was that Jimi Hendrix after seeing/hearing Phil, said Phil had it all over him
Jimi of course died in Sept 1970, so...

Sorry for making a mess outta the thread - please continue it, will redeem myself w/another question when I know for sure what Iím talkin about
Itís a very good album - Side 2, the 25 min or so jam, Do Lord


blackey - 4/7/2020 at 03:51 PM

Is it The Wackers. Don't remember their first release. The Allman Brothers played there about November of 1971 according to the Hall website.

Ha, I just went through the Carnegie Hall archives of shows 1971-1972 and was still stumped.

Glass Harp and James Gang both formed at Kent State, oddly enough.


Stephen - 4/7/2020 at 09:15 PM

Hereís another try
4 piece band, voc, gtr bs drms
Formed in 1974 - got great early exposure opening shows for the superstar band on the label - had 2 big hits on their 1974 debut album

It may have been Glass Harpís 1st show outside Ohio - itís a 1971 live recording from Carnegie Hall, I know that much

The Youngbloods did indeed perform the most popular version of "Get Together" but Jesse did not write the song.

Clues: The name of the author of "Get Together" is not the same as the singer of the band in question. After penning a couple of hits, he adopted a stage name and went on to front this popular band, well known in the rock world. This band was never wildly successful, only had one Billboard hit at #49, but they are recognized as one of the original creators of a certain genre of rock.

Bonus points for naming the rock genre, and honorable mention for naming the specific school of said rock genre.

This band was named after a temperance union. It had 2 different formations - the Leader, Singer/songwriter for the 1st 2 albums (and their biggest hit) had to leave and do community service because he was a conscientious objector during the VietNam war. They were around for a while, maybe longer.
The band for the next few albums had 2 guitar players, pedal steel, bass, and drums. They were pickin' to beat the devil and offered to fix the flat tire of a famous country singer.

Thread dropped to page 2 so bumping up. Figure I get to take a turn since nobody jumped in.

Two longtime members served in the Armed Forces before they were in this band . One enlisted in the US Army at 17, completed basic training, got a general discharge after a few months on the basis of "lack of suitability to the military lifestyle." The other was in the US Air Force - taught martial arts in Europe for the Strategic Air Command.

next question

This "Band" was led by a multi - instrumental string player. His 4th album was the 1st one to be labelled as "band". Bandmembers included fiddle, mandolin, bass, drums, sax, and trombone. Jerry Garcia appeared as a guest on one of the solo albums, George Harrison co-wrote on a song on another. Don't let the glasses fool you, he will not be your fool.

Well that is interesting...
I wasn't thinking of Come On In My Kitchen, which I wouldn't say is a "popular" song per the masses as much as the song I'm thinking of.
It certainly does show how lyrics are "borrowed" over time though...

With that I will say the song I was suggesting is Mercury Blues with K C Douglas first recording it in 1948 after he co-wrote it with Robert Geddins. It's been covered by everyone from Meatloaf to Dwight yoakam.
But it's apparent that Mr Johnson was singing about that joker a decade earlier than K C was...


fanfrom-71 - 4/19/2020 at 07:44 PM

Also... I would say seniorcoot now has the ball in his court.


BrerRabbit - 4/19/2020 at 07:45 PM


(coot got this while i was posting, leaving up for interest)

I say give Stephen this one for calling "Mercury Blues" out of his own recall.

I went whorin on google, deducted from "Mercury Blues/John Lee Hooker" being "half right", factor in "Bramlett 9 years old when first rcorded"

So - 1948

Ok, cant be John Lee Hooker cuz his first recording "Boogiie Chillen" top race record of 1948

Which leaves the other half of half right- "Mercury Blues" or "Mercury Boogie" recorded by K.C. Douglas whoever that was, in 1948.

None of which I knew, so Stephen gets my turn.

This obscure group formed in Boulder, Colorado in the early 1970's. Despite a great deal of talent among the group's members they were never able to secure a record contract. However, many years later the archives of the guitarist released on cd what would have been their original album and also a separate cd from live radio broadcasts.

Sadly, the guitarist died in '76 from a drug overdose. Present at his final concert in Miami were Allen Woody and Tinsley Ellis. The guitarist eventually formed his own solo band but prior to that replaced two other famous guitarists, from two separate well known and successful groups.

The bassist was a long time member of another famous performer's group and appeared on one of the largest selling live albums ever.

The singer would later become the President of the re-formed Capricorn Records label.

What was the name of the Boulder based band?

Other clues could possibly only be the names of the other band members. They had no releases during the time they were together so I can't add anything like that.

Personally, since it was an obscure band, I don't really care if someone uses google in this case.

Bassist was Stanley Sheldon who was in Peter Frampton's band and appeared on "Frampton Comes Alive" which sold multi-million copies back in the mid-seventies. Who didn't have a copy of that when it came out?

Thomas Dorsey - black gospel composer, known as "The Father of American Gospel Music". I can't believe I had to google that, I watched the Jorma Fur Peace show where he mentioned Dorsey and played a song by him, but it flew in one ear and right out the other. I was too busy envying his arsenal of incredible axes I guess.

Jethro Tull and David/Dee Palmer.

We have a winner!


Randall - 5/1/2020 at 04:15 PM

This is a fun thread; I hope to do it justice!

This band was formed in 1967, and has gone through many changes of personnel and leaders. (Near as I can tell, they have never disbanded.) They were formed from previous members of the Blues Project, Mothers of Invention, and others. They played at Woodstock in 1969 and at the Fillmore East venue before it was the Fillmore East.

Their founding band leader left after their first album, which had sold well. After he left, their second album went multi- multi-platinum.

Members of the band have included a previous member of Edgar Winter's White Trash, a future member of Rare Earth, a future member of the Brecker Brothers, and Jaco Pastorius.

The founding band leader went on to become a session musician, record producer, and solo artist. He has written or co-written or played on songs for Leo Sayer, Gene Pitney, the Banana Splits, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Bob Dylan. He sometimes plays in a band that includes Dave Barry and Stephen King.

Name that band!

You got it, Slade is correct. Their song Cum On Feel the Noize was the #5 US chart hit for Quiet Riot in 1981, who also charted at #50something with Slade's Mama Weer All Crazee Now

Almost unknown here, but Slade was HUGE in the UK, here are some phenomenal stats from wiki:

Slade are an English rock band formed in Wolverhampton in 1966. They rose to prominence during the glam rock era in the early 1970s, achieving 17 consecutive top 20 hits and six number ones on the UK Singles Chart. The British Hit Singles & Albums names them the most successful British group of the 1970s based on sales of singles. They were the first act to have three singles enter the charts at number one; all six of the band's chart-toppers were penned by Noddy Holder and Jim Lea. As of 2006, total UK sales stand at 6,520,171, and their best-selling single, "Merry Xmas Everybody", has sold in excess of one million copies. According to the 1999 BBC documentary It's Slade, the band have sold over 50 million records worldwide.

Sry got impatient, looked this up - Mountain debut record was released March 70, not to be confused with Leslie Wests album titled "Mountain" released July 1969. No cigar, but weirdest answer because their first album was well into 1970.

Sha Na Na - debut album November 69, months, not weeks after Woodstock. Yet another swing and miss.

CSN, my first thought as well since they were so damn green nervous and uptight at Woodstock, nope their debut record was May 69.

Which leaves Santana - they seemed so pro and polished I assumed they had been around for years already, so quickly moved on.


Randall - 5/9/2020 at 07:40 PM

I've seen some websites listing the pay for various bands at the original Woodstock, and they list the band Santana getting $750 for their gig that day. Apparently they only got signed because of Bill Graham's insistence. They were basically unknown outside of San Francisco at that time, and Woodstock was their big springboard.


stormyrider - 5/9/2020 at 07:51 PM

Yep

I would argue that one of the Stars of Woodstock (at least the movie and album- I didnít say headliner) was Santana. The album came out in late August

He would play in many unknown bands in the 1980's and 90's and actually played on a song of jon lord's and toured with Alvin lee for a short while before ultimately returning to the rock band he was known for in the late 90's recording a few new songs and a tour.

This band was formed from members of Lowell George's pre-Little Feat band (one of whom later became a founding member of Little Feat) and a member of the Mothers of Invention.

BrerRabbit - 5/12/2020 at 06:15 PM

The founder of this band was born in 1944 in what is now the town of Sovetsk, Russia. His first name as a child was Joachim. His father was killed in action on the Russian Front in 1943. In winter 1945 as the Soviet Army advanced his mother fled with him. Their train got stuck so they spent four years in the Soviet occupied zone - in 1949 they escaped to Hanover, Germany - events which he later recounted in a song recorded by this band.

I can only think of one band when it comes to Germany and that is the Scorpions.


BrerRabbit - 5/13/2020 at 01:50 AM

Nope not the scorpions.

Another couple of clues: This artist and his mother left Germany in 1958.

Now, it might take a rerun or two, but If you put aside distractions, concentrate and listen very closely to the soundtrack of Easy Rider, you might be surprised to discover that it contains music by this band. Their music in the film was obvious to me, but then again I was a big fan of this group, so it jumped right out at me. Worth watching again, to see if you can unearth their contribution to the film.

a shoutout to Tandan, probably the #1 fan of this artist. If he was here he would have nailed this one right off.

This guitarist was from Aberdeen, Mississippi. A cousin and mentor to BB King, his slide guitar playing became the inspiration for BB's hummingbird vibrato. His songs were covered by Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. He was rediscovered by guitarist John Fahey during the 1960s Folk/Blues revival. Years after his death, Derek Trucks purchased his old National Steel guitar. There is a photo of Derek playing this guitar inside the booklet for his Joyful Noise CD. Name the artist.

I'm guessing Bukka White, because I vaguely remember something about Derek having his guitar.


peachlovingman - 5/15/2020 at 02:01 PM

Your guess is correct!


Randall - 5/15/2020 at 07:43 PM

This band was formed in the Chicago area in the mid-60's. Their sound was built around guitar, horns, and vocals. They recorded on a regional label, then signed with Warner Brothers. Shortly afterward, they had a huge hit single (#2 Billboard).

Although not featured in the documentary, they toured on the Festival Express in Canada.

They were on hiatus from 1973-1990, during which time the co-founder formed another platinum-selling group, and wrote/co-wrote major selling hits for other artists, including .38 Special.

The group has remained loyal to the Chicago area, participating in many local activities over the years.

Correct! Their big hit was "Vehicle", which in my opinion, still sounds really good; not dated at all.

Jim Peterik (the group's co-founder) left and formed Survivor ("Eye of the Tiger"). He also did a lot of work with .38 Special.

This band was started by one of the top stars of the British Invasion, they had one hit single before he left the group in the middle of a European tour in 1970. Jimi Hendrix's last appearance was with this band.

They went on to success, best album 1973 Billboard, Couple top 10 hits in 1975.

It would be interesting as I believe War and the Animals would of been huge if Burdon stayed in either band.

This "Rock band "was formed in 2001 and has released 6 albums along with 2 Ep's. They have a song that shares the same title as a Allman Bros song. The name of the band is after a type of cigar.

The band is classified as a rock band but definitely has southern rock roots. I guess being from the Bluegrass state may be a reason why.

This band was named after the hometown of its main members. 2019 saw the release of this band's first album of all new recordings in 30 years. One of their early hits had a promo video done in old silent film style with a classic "damsel in distress on railroad tracks" sequence.

While I think up a band, here are a couple of thoughts about Black Oak Arkansas.

Although probably obscure to most now, at their peak they were a pretty big act. It always seemed to me that their marketing and image got them noticed at first, but ultimately limited them. But it's easy to imagine a young David Lee Roth being influenced by "Jim Dandy" Mangrum's stage persona.


Randall - 5/20/2020 at 07:34 PM

English Band/American Band

This band had their beginnings in England in the late 60's, but primarily known as an early 70's band. They are known as being heavy organ-based, with gothic influences. Their music is primarily heavy/complex/prog rock. Their band name is literary-derived (clue!).

They have produced 24 studio albums and sold over 45 million albums world-wide. They have performed (with various members) well into the 21st century, but are apparently more popular outside of the U.S. than within the U.S. (not much of a clue).

They changed their band name when originally being formed from "Spice" (just an info-bit, not a clue). They were influenced by the American band, described further below.

American band:
This late 60's band is from Long Island, and known for heavy organ/slow tempo songs (clue), composed of organ, guitar, bass, and drums. The drummer is a pretty well-known drummer (clue).

They were an influence on the English band above and Deep Purple.

Two of the band members later formed a group with a well-known English guitarist (clue!)

Name the English band, and bonus for naming the American band.

Improvisational prog rock, acid jazz, space rock, this group has always defied description. Formed in Paris in 1967 by a former member of Soft Machine - numerous line-ups, still performing. During the late 70s early 80s they had a nomadic following in Europe, similar to the American "Deadhead" phenomenon.

It was difficult to come up with a clue, the wiki on this group is endless, gotta be a great book
written or could be on them.

Great sound btw, if you are in explore mode check em out!


JimSheridan - 5/21/2020 at 12:12 AM

Jeez Brer, is it Gong?

You're making me think of Steve Hillage or Ozric Tentacles.


BrerRabbit - 5/21/2020 at 12:46 AM

Yes, Gong. Pretty sure Steve Hillage played with them at some point. Gong is strange - it has been several very different sounding groups. Lineup changes it just moves on. Would have been fun following em around Europe to the summer festivals, I know zero about the Euro hippie era.


JimSheridan - 5/23/2020 at 08:25 PM

Minneapolis band famous for their 1980s stuff. They in the studio were playing a ragged, drunken version of "Like A Rolling Stone" that they changed to "Like A Rolling Pin," not realizing that Bob was actually at the studio at the same time and listening to their hijinks.

This band could be considered as a "one hit wonder". They were formed in Union City, Indiana and had a huge hit single in 1965. That song is the official rock song of the state of Ohio. Another song of theirs was later covered by David Bowie. The group took their name from a B-side song by the Ventures.

Members of the group later went on to be the backing band for Johnny Winter. In 1973, the band's guitarist had a hit single that name-checked a previous band of one of the ABB's founding members. This guitarist also recorded with Steely Dan and others.
