Re: The Fleetwood Mac Thread

Peter Green period all the way....Really bugs me when I put on a track from the Green era and they've no idea who it is... :evil: I like the Green period best as well. The 'Rumours' period has been overplayed since, indeed all the Nicks/Buckingham work has been. "Why Did You Do It" honestly isn't a...

Re: The Steve Winwood Thread

Traffic themselves (as well as Mason) were under-rated, I would say. 'Paper Sun' is one of my favourite psych hits. I like the simpler Mason-type songs (Mulberry Bush, You Can All Join In etc) as well as the more prog-type ones. I am sure that, like Family and Jethro Tull, they could have had more h...

Re: The Jimi Hendrix Thread

I like to think Hendrix and Clapton would've gotten together at some point. :D I think it could have happened - might still have been happening now. And similar to e.g. Joe Cocker, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Peter Gabriel, Jimi might have had sporadic hit singles from successful albums, in t...

Re: Mansun

My memory is that around the time of 'Grey Lantern' they were making their mark amongst several others, and on the cusp of more success. They had a lot of exposure via the music press and radio. But by the time of 'Six', which I don't really remember, Britpop had burned out taking Mansun and others ...

Re: The Steve Winwood Thread

Yes both great songs. Wouldn't like to say which is best. 'Low Spark of High Heeled Boys' is Winwood at his finest, but the unusual title and the length of the song make it beyond the reach of the top 40 audience. Whereas 'Gimme Some Lovin' is a very commercial song, appealing to everyone. The two s...

Re: The Jimi Hendrix Thread

If Jimi had lived he would have to be his own man, like Joe Cocker and Bob Dylan. Perhaps you can estimate his post-1970 career by using Cocker and Dylan as a guide. They continued indefinitely, but probably their most potent material was up to 1970. And I don't like to think of Hendrix being in the...

Re: The Fleetwood Mac Thread

The Bob Welch period descended into various difficulties, amongst which was the rights to the name 'Fleetwood Mac'. One consequence was that a band of anonymous musicians was put together to fulfil touring commitments in 1974. Mick Fleetwood was supposed to be in this line-up but withdrew at a late ...

Re: The best song ever...right now at least

I thought the thread title referred to the best songs currently being released.

In which case, there isn't much. :cry: :)

Re: The Steve Winwood Thread

Yes indeed, a great raw live performance. Great vocal, great organ, great guitar, and great bass underpinning it all.

Always think that Stevie Winwood could have had hit singles throughout the 70s had he wanted to. He was prog, but he could be commercial.

8-) great pictures - they also document changing times, and how fashions progressed in a relatively short period.

Yes, they had a good run in that 1969-70 period, including some great singles, between Kirwan joining and Green leaving.

Re: The Jimi Hendrix Thread

Jimi might have gone into jazz-fusion type rock...He might have been able to create a newer genre of his own! Yes this is quite possible. Though I think his most potent work could have already been recorded by 1970. There was a heady atmosphere in the late 60s. At this time the 'music industry' was...
