Not listening to whole album, but damn, Wilson Pickett could sing. One of my favorite pop songs of my youth, too:

It's Christmas.

Why would a music enthusiast not listen to some this time of year? wink.gif

Looked this one up as well. Oasis, that's where I knew this name from. Unmistakable once I heard a few tunes.

Rose Hill Drive - Live at the Gothic Theatre 3-22-2005



For those unfamiliar with Rose Hill Drive, they were a great band who played in the style of late 60's, early 70's hard rock bands such as The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Mountain, Led Zeppelin, Grand Funk...etc. Their live repertoire consisted of original songs plus a generous number of cover songs. Sadly, their live material was never captured on any official release (to my knowledge). Their studio albums only hint at what they were capable of in concert (IMO). Fortunately, the band allows audience recordings of their performances to be downloaded from archive.org (where this recording comes from). Check them out.

I had the good fortune of seeing Rose Hill Drive open for The Who in 2006 and I was stunned by their great performance. I generally dread opening acts, but I was blown away by them.

Dude, I am all over Rose Hill Drive. I have everything they ever put out on CD, including the original self-titled EP with "Intruder," their cover of "Shakin' All Over" from the "Stubbs the Zombie" soundtrack, and their self-distributed foursome album "Americana" from 2011. I hope we haven't heard the last from them.

I've seen those boys five times since 2008, first opening for Gov't Mule, once opening for the Stone Temple Pilots and three times as small-club headliners. As you know, their originals are very strong, and their covers are eclectic. I mean, who actually covers the Band of Gypsys? These guys do -- I've seen them do "Message to Love" and "Who Knows." Nobody covers those songs.

You might seek out "Live at the Fox Theatre," which is/was an official live EP available as a download from Rhapsody.



It's all early stuff -- "Cool Cody" and "The Guru" and the like -- and it rocks like hell.

Noel Gallager is one of the great songwriters of the later-day rock-'n'-roll period, and his solo album does not disappoint. One of the best tracks from the sessions, "A Simple Game of Genius" didn't even make the cut:

Ha ha. A very little kid. I think I probably first heard him perform it on TV or maybe the AM radio. It stuck with me.

Thomas Tallis, Spem in alium, Choir of Winchester Cathedral.
Followed that with the Kronos Quartet instrumental version.
Compared to the etherael beauty of the choir, the Kronos Quartet version..excuse the pun...sounds "wooden" and pedestrian.

Thanks for the suggestion of "Live at the Fox Theatre". I had heard of it could never find it. I do have two CD singles which contain live material. I don't subscribe to Rhapsody unfortunately. Maybe I'll have to see if they have a trial membership just to get that EP.

I don't think you need to subscribe to Rhapsody. I think you just go to their web site and buy stuff. That's what I've done in the past.
