oh, and how was the apple pie, last weekend???
Avatar 11:11am Michael Shelley:

Wayne = comp
Pie was VG - home made crust makes it - but I would say SLIGHTLY undercooked
  11:13am Clarke:

do you have a certain type of apple that makes the best pie?? i have lately been into Envy apples - but not in pies.
Avatar 11:14am Michael Shelley:

When we're not in apple season - my standby is 1/2 Granny Smith & 1/2 Golden Delicious

Although I am indeed quite a Cheap Trick fan, I always thought their cover of this Terryville Reidsville track held/added nothing to tthe Terryville Reidsville original. Terrycloth Reid'so version is just so majestic.

@Frank. It was clear that you weren't The bulk of the Taxman rip offs happened in the 60's. It's funny because the lick plays itself, and as you know, it's really easy to play.

Clarke nails it.
  12:20pm Clarke:

i think it speaks more to being UP on things to not be surprised by an opening act - in other words, most of us knew at least a little something about most of the bills we were seeing...???
  12:21pm Clarke:

i had NO idea who Cheap Trick was until they opened for KISS - just out of the blue, my new favorite band.
  12:24pm Clarke:

in fact, i was so blown away by cheap trick i walked out on KISS halfway through...
  12:28pm Clarke:

MS - i think you are right about The Band - but, also Dylan's "endorsement" of them was super important
  12:29pm AlexB:

Saw The Band in 1986 (without Robbie) at the Lone Star Cafe in NYC. Tiny venue - almost no one there. They were brilliant!! And then - about a year later - saw the Grateful Dead close with The Weight to about 10K audience. Boggles the mind...
  12:30pm ?:

Including Nick Lowe and crew. Great story about Brinsley S hosting them at their rehearsal house in Will Burch's pub rock book.
  12:30pm Clarke:

and this is a marvin gaye song - so obviously not written by marvin either...

Great cover; saw The Band a number of times back in the day, great show (saw a New Year's Eve show, if I remember correctly, when Dylan came out as a guest). Ahhhh...
Avatar 12:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I thinks : Last years of the 1960s - got so FarOut that Earth was a Trip. Bob w/ 'JohnWesleyHarding' often cited as a repudiation of Psych. Us bYRdmaniax gotta point them out as early (both as FarOut & the Return Trip)... Good Old wet blanket Bob. More than an endorsement - a close collaboration. He's no small thing...
& yeah - TheBand's tracks were FolkMusic as soon as they existed. That timelessness. A lot like those of another band's just then, whom people love to hate - The Dead's.
