Browsing through your music library would be pure heaven for me. Smile Hubster is a big Jethro Tull fan, and an old pal and fellow Tullhead sent him a link to a Tull night concert done at Tanglewood back in 1970. This was before we met, and I love early Tull myself. Smile Rec'd!!

Hey Joe,

Great sheet as always man! That was a great B.B. album, lot's of his seem short to me, 30 min. or so... It's over too soon. Smile Some great playin' there.

That John Mayall USA Union was quite popular in socal in its time. Taylors bass playing was amazing. The David Bromberg was a word-of-mouth deal out there though. Most only heard of it from Dr. Demento playing "The Holdup" on his Sunday night funny songs radio show.

Loved that Buchanan last week too! Those last 3 Alligator releases were peak polished Roy.

a lot of bb king records seem kinda short. i don't know why he/his producers did that, he had a fairly large repertoire.

buchanan's alligator albums were quite well done, though i think i prefer his earlier stuff for its raw edge. i've still got a bunch of buchanan albums the clean up and post, so stay tuned.

have a good one!
