The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys was probably Traffic's best album!

This mid-eighties song from Husker Du has been going round inside my head for the last week.

Mea culpa.

Saw Shivaree back when they'd just started out. The singer had an extraordinary stage presence, and the guitarist was a master of "dirty sound". The album this track is from has one of the best titles out there: I Oughtta Give You a Shot in the Head for Making Me Live in This Dump

Two tracks from Happy Trails by Quicksilver Messenger Service, which show what you get when two guitarists such as John Cipollina and Gary Duncan take some acid and go into the studio for a recording session. The two tracks run into each other, but I couldn't find them together (other than playing the whole album, that is). The photo is of John Cipollina's awesome custom-built amp stack:

To create his distinctive guitar sound, Cipollina developed this one-of-a-kind amplifier stack. All of his guitars, including the one here, were wired with two leads, one for bass and one for treble. The bass pickup fed into the two Standel bass amps on the bottom of the stack. Each Standel was equipped with two 15-inch speakers. The treble pickups fed the two Fender amps - a Fender Twin Reverb with two 12-inch speakers, and a Fender Dual Showman, that drove the six Wurlitzer horns.

Bit surprised that I haven't seen that guitar rig before as there appears to be an obsession with guitar rigs and guitar tone these days - I could imagine that rig being a nightmare for a guitar tech.

Back in the 1980's I got two Boston songs off of the radio, one was posted a few posts back, this is the other

If you're ever in Cleveland, Ohio, that stack can be seen in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.

Just been looking at David Squires latest football cartoon strip - he mentions Ride and has some lyrics which look familiar - turns out it is from this song which was on an EP that I bought when it came out..

Have only seen the Who once, about 8 years ago. Like the drumming on this early one by them (inspired by the Kinks early hits)

A very long time ago there was a TV programme featuring a drummer called Billy Cobham doing a drum clinic. I was very impressed with his drumming ability. Found out later that he played in something called the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Don't know anything about the band but this is the first video that comes up on Youtube and you can hear Billy Cobham's fantastic drumming.

Mahavishnu was the name given to John McLaughlin by an Indian guru. Seen him a couple of times, most recently when playing as part of Remember Shakti (with Zakir Hussain on tabla - awesome). He's an extraordinary guitar player, and taught Carlos Santana a thing or two.

The word 'guru' reminds me of a single that my brother used to play a lot back in the early seventies. I can remember some songs from the late sixties but many of the earliest songs I remember were glam rock.

The Kaleidoscope track reminds me of some of the music John Peel played on his radio show in the 80's, so here's a song John Peel played on his radio show in the 80's.

A few half-decent rock bands went glam, to cash in on the trend. Sweet was one of them. I saw them play the school dance, would you believe, and they were hard rockers back then. That would've been in '69, I think - roughly when Blodwyn Pig released this:
