Because if you’re a Magma fan, you’re gonna wanna see this.
Where else are you gonna see Jimmy Page whip out a Vox Phantom? Could have done without Mr You’re A Better Man Than I, though.
Amazing stuff, and, I shit you not, it involves flying carpets!
Featuring Mike Oldfield on bass, Lol Coxhill on soprano, and Dave Bedford on accordion. Ayers at his most beautifully wistful and romantic.
Sam is absolutely burning it up, and on a guitar borrowed from Earl Hooker! Raw and dirty Blues.
Watching Easybeats videos in remembrance of singer Stevie Wright, I stumbled on this cover from last year’s Australian, Bruce Springsteen tour. Watching Springsteen attack the bouncy, can’t-wait-for-the- weekend anthem, with his raspy delivery and aggressive demeanor, makes for a fascinating study in contrasts. Fortunately, because it’s The Boss, it totally works. R.I.P. Stevie.
Coachella 2008, and I had never seen this. Watch before it is removed again.
I cannot begin to limit my Tyrannosaurus Rex/T Rex favorites, so I’m gonna take the easy out and post the excellent Born To Boogie documentary, and the Wembley 1972 gig that accompanies it on the DVD release (hint: BUY IT). The music of Marc Bolan figures into my life as prominently as just about any musician, and to see him at his prime is just transcendent. Boogie on, Electric Warrior.
