Did you know they played at Woodstock ('69)?:
More and More - Blood, Sweat & Tears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nSvgDwdS9A
Raga Majh Khamaj - Ravi Shankar w/Alla Rakha (audio only): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEetKrEmfiI&list=PL0XnJc-qC5KYp5-nxG15oX7bMRbLQqqHn
If I Were a Carpenter - Tim Hardin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93f7vSt70hM
I need to revisit the Woodstock blu ray..it's been awhile since I watched it...it's a shame Jimi Hendrix was playing when most of the people had already left...

KSOL AM 1450 San Francisco Aircheck 1967 (4:17 DJ - Sly Stone): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2LlPTSu7oo&list=PLkLMg_E_YD64Uw_ZpyGS9oHLeLdfYCn4V&index=2
More Sly spins on KSOL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixz4Fwtc3QA&index=3&list=PLkLMg_E_YD64Uw_ZpyGS9oHLeLdfYCn4V

Sly, Cynthia & Jerry talk about Sly's DJ days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOG2GZFcKFs

He also sang along with records (even after they ended!) and recorded his own jingle:
"Sly Stone is my name.
Playing records is my game.
A little bit different every night.
Always out of sight!...
...You will have to move
You'll be in the groove..."
(Sorry, couldn't find a clip of this 1966 jingle!)

He also worked as a staff record producer for Autumn Records, producing for San Francisco-area bands such as The Beau Brummels, The Mojo Men, Bobby Freeman, and Grace Slick's first band, the Great Society. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sly_Stone

All this preceded the Family Stone. Truly a genius and, IMHO, a waste of his later life.

Did you know that:
Dr. Demento (Barret Eugene "Barry" Hansen) was a roadie for both Spirit and Canned Heat?

Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister was a roadie for the Jimi Hendrix Experience and ELP, besides performing in both Hawkwind and Motorhead?

Ike Turner was an "unofficial" roadie for blues singer Robert Nighthawk?

Interesting #1 album on the Top 40 list right now...Tom Petty has slipped a little to the #9 spot...but the real news is what is sitting on the top of the heap....a real "blast from the past" HERE

On Pink Floyd's song "Remember a Day" from A Saucer Full of Secrets, drummer Nick Mason was frustrated that he couldn't come up with a suitable drum part. Producer Norman "Hurricane" Smith knew what he wanted to hear. So, Smith played the drum part himself. Mason did not appear on the released track.

Smith discovered and signed Pink Floyd to EMI. He also produced the albums Piper, Saucerful and Ummagumma.

He was the engineer on all the Beatles' output, up to and including Rubber Soul. Lennon called him "Normal," since Smith was near impossible to rattle.

Smith also worked with Helen Shapiro, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Frank Ifield, Gerry & the Pacemakers, the Swinging Blue Jeans, Manfred Mann, Barclay James Harvest and Kevin Ayers

Smith had a HUGE hit in 1972 as an artist with "Oh, Babe, What Would You Say."

From French TV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnxoTCvklKQ

Norman Smith http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Smith_(record_producer) died in March '08 at age 85.

Charles Manson auditioned for "The Monkees."

Davy Jones actually admitted he started the RUMOR sometime after the Tate-LaBianca Murders, jokingly telling a reporter Manson auditioned for a role on "The Monkees."

Manson had a lot of connections to the 1960s music scene, even living for a time with Beach Boys member Dennis Wilson, so the lie gained widespread acceptance. In truth, Manson was in prison during the time the show was auditioning, so he couldn't have been there.

I remember seeing the TV version of Helter Skelter...Steve Railsback played Manson and the likeness to Manson was incredible...I remember at the time being so angry that he was using the Beatles as an excuse for his actions...for a TV movie it very dramatic for the time it was produced..

For those that like the Beatles there is an interesting 1 hour show that aired on the History Channel in 2009 entitled The Beatles On Record...I have it on my HD DVR and it's priceless...it's an indepth look at the Beatles during the recording sessions at Abbey Road as seen thru the eyes and words of the Beatles and George Martin....if you ever get a chance to see it... do so...you won't regret it...I've seen paperback's with that title but never any video release..if one exists I would buy it because sooner or later I will lose it on my DVR...

Now an then WMUC plays songs by The Lears (Annabel Lee and Electric Mushroom Voyage), which I thought sounds amazing through my Espey tubed AM/FM radio, Fisher 500C amp (tubed) and Altec Lansing 511 horns for midrange-treble and back loaded horns for bass. One guitarist plays a 12 string Rick in Annabel Lee (Edgar Allan Poe).

If there are any Bob Dylan fans in the house...maybe you can lend a perspective to this upcoming title..give your opinions...I've love some input on this new release..it's the basement tapes HERE

In the last few months I have purchased Blood on The Tracks...Blonde on Blonde..Slow Train Coming..and Freewheelin on SACD..5 discs total and I paid less than $35 total for all of them...prices on these SACD's are very low now..all but one were used but in very good to like new condition...and they sound good..I wouldn't consider myself a true Dylan fan...I just like his hit songs..and getting these various titles is my attempt to get my favorite songs...

My interest in this upcoming release has more to do with the members that would eventually form THE BAND than Dylan...Robbie Robertson..Rick Danko(1999)..Richard Manuel(1986)..Garth Hudson...Levon Helm(2012)...only Garth Hudson and Robbie Robertson are still alive...the dates after the others is when we lost them...if you aren't familiar with THE BAND there is a great blu ray which was directed by Martin Scorsese covering the 1976 farewell performance that is well worth a purchase HERE

So I see 2 pre order versions on amazon now...a 2 CD set with a 56 page book and 38 songs HERE and the "guilty pleasure" mondo set that has 6 CD's and 138 songs and a "deluxe" book with 120 pages and the real location of where Jimmy Hoffa is buried...and countless other "treasures" that the marketing department has included HERE

I'd love to hear from the masses..anything about these new offerings or THE BAND...

Being a MEGA-Dylan fan, I'll get the ultra deluxe ripoff version. Most of this has been released unofficially in the past. So far, I've bought all the "sucker" complete Dylan boxes. Having worked for CBS, I've heard all/most of this. It's kind of like listening to the Beatles' Let it Be sessions (all 75 hours of LIB.) I don't notice Tiny Tim being credited here, so I suspect the Basement Tapes tracks he was on are left off. YES, THAT Tiny Tim (tiptoe through the tulips...)

I'm on my way out the door, so I'll likely post more on this subject when I have more time.

Be My Baby - Tiny Tim & the Band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdA_ZHjLxbU

Although not with Dylan or the Band, here's TT's Do Ya Think I'm Sexy video (BTW: NO, I don't think he's sexy.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N_jlF-sRqk There is a better version of this by the KGB Chicken on Rhino's Circus Royale compilation LP. Sorry, I couldn't find a clip for that.

Let's hear it for the late, great Herbert Khaury, aka Tiny Tim!
