Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Linda wouldn't have had any way to know this, but she became a "star-in-waiting" with 'Different Drum'. For those of us who were paying attention then - and who had their ears to the ground, she was welcomed with open arms. It was never a matter, for the listening public, that she'd end up being a 'one hit wonder'; she had already walked through the door. It wasn't a matter of 'if, it was a matter of 'when'. All it would take was another 'successful' 45, and in 1970, with 'Long Long Time', she came closer. Then, everybody knows what happened in late 1974 with 'Heart Like A Wheel' and 'You're No Good'. But the point is, she already had a seat at the table in 1967; it was just a matter of time. I'm so happy that she stuck with her career. All of us are the richer for that decision.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Terry Lee most likely had heard Peter, Paul & Mary's 'A Soalin' before adapting some of it for 'Flight Thirteen'. PP&M were huge during this period. Their 'In Concert' LP, from 1964, got to #4 on Billboard.

Here's their version from that LP: https://youtu.be/hDlG4TS6wFA

Re: “Vintage Vinyl Tucson

'Don't Blow Your Mind' is a damn good record! Thinking back, it's amazing how relatively open local radio playlists were then - and how completely wired teenagers were to AM radio. FM was just for "serious" music like Classical, Jazz and "Easy Listening".

Thanks, also, for the local history about Copper State Studio. Looking at that address on 'Street View', the building to the right of #211, with the sunburst grills on the windows, sure looks as though it could've been a recording studio once. Is this the same building or was the original torn down to put up 'The Cadence' apartments? Anybody know?

Re: “Know Your Product: Ace Frehley

Ace!

Not only the coolest thing to ever belong to the KISS family (sorry Gene, you've become really pathetic, especially when you open your mouth) but also the reason I started believing rock and roll rules.

Major props! DC

P.S. Thanks to Brett Callwood also. I am envious of you for getting to do this. Fucker! (I hope you realize that part was jest.)
