Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Greetings from Tannersville via Bay Ridge.

Great start sir!

@LBM nice hearing your voice today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Figgsrock:

EFD, I assume you saw that UMG filed to have that class action suit dismissed?
Avatar 9:18pm CC:

It was kind of a cheap way to get a hit record back then but everybody did it...just write a song with a popular name in it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Ciggy:

Pure Pop for now, people?
Pure pop, for now people?

Tubes just seemed to disappear, played that stuff a lot in high school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Bootsie:

I was never a huge Tubes fan... until I saw them live a few years ago. They give great show! Saw them again recently and probably will again.

That really is a drag..!.. so that should make copies of records cut from the original stampers even more valuable???

  9:43pm JakeGould:

Neglect in the art world—which includes publishing and music—neglect of the past is very common. FWIW, people hate CDs and digital streaming, but honestly many items would sit stagnant and decay if not handled for reissues and such.

Anyway… This is a great interview!
Avatar 9:47pm JIMD2019:

this is interesting .. esp the concept of hard drives being obsolete :-(
  9:48pm P-90:

Oooch Tim Hardin kinda casually took a little hit there...
Avatar 9:48pm Mailman Tom:

Saw Canned Heat at the Fillmore East before they played Woodstock. They were terrific!
  9:49pm JakeGould:

@JIMD2019: The best way to store data on hard drives is to copy data to multiple drives and store them in different locations.

Or if you have the resources, a RAID array is the best way to go. And that said, good luck getting a budget to do either in many places.
Avatar 9:51pm JIMD2019:

Thanks man! I’ll lookup the raid thing. my teacher was like “if it doesn’t exist in 4 places, it doesn’t exist” luckily I haven’t started backups of anything important yet
Avatar 9:53pm JIMD2019:

I like the line “blue collar velvet underground” so good
  9:53pm Listener Bop Monroe:

Have a case of slightly warped LPs of first band was in. Stored in a cold moist basement. Not worth listening to but they're safe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The newspaper up here has Woodstock 50 articles on a daily basis. www.poughkeepsiejournal.com... It's like following a soap opera.
  9:54pm Listener Bop Monroe:

Canned Heat and the Chipmunks!
Avatar 9:55pm CC:

  9:55pm Listener Bop Monroe:

Great interview gentlemen.
  9:56pm JakeGould:

@Ken: Upstate NY politics and economics is fascinating. Also, did 91.1FM just go down for a moment?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Figgsrock:

EFD/Andy -- I have one platinum record from my days in the early 1990s as an MD at an active rock station. The fact that it's for Candlebox doesn't make me want to leave it far behind.
  9:58pm steveL:

How were so many so great at Woodstock? It’s like there was a groove throughout. Or I could be high.
Avatar 9:58pm Mailman Tom:

Henry Vestine left Canned Heat before Woodstock. Harvey Mandel replaced him in the Woodstock lineup
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm efd:

hey thanks everyone! A little preoccupied in the studio, but scanning the comments when I can!
  10:00pm Carmichael:

Evan, you played The Tubes! That was a great song that dumbasses took literally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm efd:

ha, yeah, kind of the "Born In The USA" of its day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Ciggy:

What I got from the NY Times article was that the industry didn't have the chance / foresight to use today's technology to remaster the lost master tapes due to the fire.
  10:04pm JakeGould:

@Ciggy: The industry is notoriously cheap. Not just music but pretty much all industries. They are focused on pushing out current product and archives and “ephemera” are just that.

Nobody at the top of any of the major record labels cares about how to deal with old merch past tossing them in a warehouse somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

So much more than the film could contain...appreciate it.
  10:06pm JakeGould:

Also, 91.1FM went down for a short bit while I was typing that 10:04pm comment. Back up but just bringing it up.
  10:07pm Listener Bop Monroe:

My friends wil ask 'is the dead on it?'

so are they?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

So Universal acquires several other labels thru takeovers over a great period - & allows these priceless irreplaceable works to be destroyed
- but also covers it up - & continues to obscure the facts about what's lost when clarity is most needed...
Avatar 10:12pm Mailman Tom:

What about the 2nd stage at Woodstock? Many performers played under that tent, including Tiny Tim.
  10:13pm Carmichael:

I’ve seen the Tubes at least 20 times. They are a big NorCal band who are on every multi bill in town. You live here, you’re gonna see ‘em.
  10:14pm JakeGould:

Here is a link to the “Woodstock: Back to the Garden” stuff: www.rhino.com...

Ten Years After. Please don’t destroy my memory of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm jmd:

Great show and interview EFD and Andy. Thanks.
  10:18pm Listener Bop Monroe:

Thanx for the link, very thorough! Questions answered!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Damn! 14 years...
  10:25pm P-90:

Let’s hear it for “non-psychotic fact-based questions”
  10:28pm Carmichael:

I’m not used to “fact-based” ...
  10:28pm Johnzon:

just tuned in idk who this guy talking is but if he's been in a band for 40 years it seems to me like his voice sounds ten or twenty years younger than he actually is
Avatar 10:32pm CC:

I wish somebody would do that with the Atlanta Pop Festival recordings from 69 and 70???
Avatar 10:33pm Mailman Tom:

I went to the Atlantic City Pop Festival. It was held 2 weeks prior to Woodstock and it was rain free!
  10:35pm steveL:

This is a top notch nerd fest! Very interesting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Great interview this guy!
  10:39pm Van Chinski:

This show has been amazing. I'm not the world's biggest Woodstock fan but this has been fantastic listening on so many levels. It finally got me to sign up for the comment board after decades of listening. Great show, EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Read 'Prisoner of Woodstock' by Dallas Taylor - CSNY's drummer. Paints a picture...
  10:47pm P-90:

Amazing to hear this after all these years
  10:48pm Daybreak and the...early mid-summer!:

This sounds great, but then again I’m listening out of the one speaker on the bottom of my iPhone, so what do I know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm KidProJoe:

Knowing what happened to the 69 Cubs, I bet the Mets won.
  10:50pm Listener Bop Monroe:

I did the brown acid
  10:51pm P-90:

Was that John Morris making the stage announcement about the electrical “trickle”?
Avatar 10:57pm CC:

It matters because at that point in time we had an opportunity ...a small window of opportunity to change the world ...caring, sharing Peace Love Brotherhood concern for the ecology and the economy... that was all important to anybody who considered themselves a thinking human being who was looking forward to a brighter future!!!...simple!!!
  11:01pm steveL:

Taught us how to behave at such events. Fascinating.
  11:02pm sufferwords:

I care about Northridge- it was 3 blocks from my house
  11:02pm Daybreak and the...early mid-summer!:

The people at concerts these days doing it with their phone lights. Easy to shake your head at, but naturally trying to catch a magic moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I suppose even as a negative example - toilets & overdoses & traffic & so on - it was a 1st & a biggie...
  11:06pm Johnzon:

my uncles were at woodstock... my grandpa drove them there from Long Island but he wouldn't let my mom go because she was a girl... even tho her younger brother got to go. they stayed till the end and helped clean up after
  11:09pm Johnzon:

hey now... kale can be fun yo
  11:11pm Mike tp:

didn't know blood sweat and tears were there.in 69 they were my first concert experience at Montclair St college Montclair nj Tim Hardin opened.they were great .

what if i wanted to know how boring a show was? immersion ruined
Avatar 11:15pm Hoboken Jack:

You're my ride home soundtrack!
  11:21pm medson:

This sounds amazing. I need to buy this.
  11:22pm PJ:

I missed most of the conversation, so forgive me if this question has been covered: out of all the music festivals that took place from, say, 1967 to 1972, why did Woodstock get so much acclaim that it became synonymous with hippiedom and the “youth movement”? Was it the movie, or the Joni Mitchell song, or something else?
  11:23pm steveL:

Ride, Jack, ride!

Live Who was always special. Things could happen. It’s better to pay attention.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm efd:

hey PJ, we literally just talked about that in a previous mic break so I'm going to refer you to the archive for that one. :)
Avatar 11:29pm CC:

Great version of the Fred Neil song!!!
  11:30pm PJ:

Thanks, EfD, I will wait for the archive to go up and will turn on my lava lamp and enjoy (seriously, it’s a good interview)
  11:37pm Sally:

Great interview! Enjoying this discussion and the music. Thanks EFD and Andy Zax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm medson:

These tracks and this interview are amazing.
@efd Are you playing the Woodstock tracks strictly from CD’s?
  11:50pm Santos L Halper:

Loving this, thanks guys.
  11:52pm Daybreak and the...early mid-summer!:

With that...to bed! Nighty night all.
Avatar 11:52pm CC:

Most excellent indeed Andy and Evan!!!... thanks for the reminiscence!!...
