Gotta say mine Allman Brothers Eat a peach or Live at Fillmore east
Beatles and Zep are favorite bands. Abbey Road favorite album. Stevie Ray Vaughan best concert. Favorite song depends on the day. Today I would say The Beatles ‘Flying’.
Three Dog Night
Another favorite chilling-on-a-Sunday-morning album: St. Germain's Tourist.
I love "It's a Beautiful Day". That album is perfection.
Yes, those strings and the melodies are to die for.
Speaking of cool concerts, Diana Ross is set to perform at our state fairgrounds this fall. 78 years old and still doin' it. Gotta see this one!
Best album: "It's a Beautiful Day"
Song: S & G's "Feelin' Groovy"
Concert tour: Sting's "Brand New Day"
Fillmore East has always been in my top ten.
I know it's not the same, but my favorite concert was a Pink Floyd cover band backed by a Symphony Orchestra. They played Dark Side of the Moon from start to finish, and they added some songs from The Wall, Wish you were Here, and Momentary Lapse of Reason. Outdoors in the mountains where we could bring in ANY food and bev we wanted. Meats, cheeses, fruit, crackers, and a shit load of alcohol. I knew all the songs and the singer sounded just like David Gilmour. I bawled like a 14 year old girl at a Justin Bieber concert.
There's a great Pink Floyd cover band near Minneapolis that I've seen: the Fabulous Armadillos; I last saw their "Floydian Slip" concert in 2016. I won't forget when because their performance of "The Wall" took on special meaning in that election year. Their finale in the song was a "tear down the wall" chant that a few of us in the audience joined in. This was in a rural town north of Minneapolis where most of the audience—including the friend I attended with—were clearly Trumpers who didn't appreciate the twist.
