Since we’ve been home for most of February, I’ve had time to frequent my nearest Salvation Army for records and VHS tapes. It’s pretty sweet because records and tapes are a quarter there.
Going through their stash this month I found a Dave Brubeck record, a Bill Evans Anthology, Genesis live double-disc, and the Blues Brothers soundtrack on vinyl for under $2. They were all in good condition too. (I also bought Kazaam, Wizard of Oz, Tim Burton’s Batman & Nightmare before Christmas, and some other movies for about the same price.)
So for post 6 of BBR, I’ll feature The Dave Brubeck Quartet record – Time In Outer Space.
Joe Morello was an amazing jazz drummer and dominates the whole B side of this record. Hope you enjoy!
Tonight we’re in Grand Rapids, MI at The Tip Top Deluxe with the Kent County String Band. Showtime is 9pm. See y’all there.
Genesis double live. “Seconds out”? Wore that record out in my prog rock days (now a days my attention span is too short for 10-hour bass solos). They were the first concert I ever saw. 1977 in Dayton Hara Arena, general admission. Doors open and you run as fast as you can upfront. Lousy sound, but virally no security so the floor was nuts—basically a BYOB opium den.
And they had lasers man! (use your best FM Rock jock promo voice here)
“Genesis! With their mind-blowing laser light show!”
Two roadies haul out this big machine to create the aforementioned mind-blowing-osity and the crowd went nuts. Of course today you could reproduce this with a laser pen for 19.95. Rock on.
