R.E.M.- Murmur 40th- Michael Stipe, Peter Buck

R.E.M. "Murmur" quietly emerged April 12, 1983 and has never left my essential music list, along with its follow-up "Reckoning". Michael Stipe & Peter Buck are here In the Studio for "Murmur" 40th anniversary. Songs include "Radio Free Europe","South Central Rain","Can't Get There from Here","Driver 8",  and an ultra-rare live acoustic performance of "Maps and Legends" from McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica.

Simon and Garfunkel- Bookends- Art Garfunkel

"Bookends" by Simon and Garfunkel went to #1 sales in both America and the UK, and since then Rolling Stone magazine has ranked "Bookends" as the #21 album of the entire Sixties, as well as #234 on their Top 500 Albums of All Time. Art Garfunkel is my guest In the Studio for this ultra-rare classic rock interview.

Genesis- And Then There Were Three- Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins

Progressive rock band Genesis flirted perilously close to the mainstream for the first time in December 1976 with "Your Own Special Way" on the album Wind and Wuthering, yet there are no reports of any permanent injury. Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins join me In the Studio. -Redbeard

Procol Harum- the late Gary Brooker, Keith Reid, Matthew Fisher, Robin Trower

Keith Reid, Procol Harum lyricist, has passed away March 23. “Live with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra" from the eclectic British band Procol Harum, which has the distinction of placing two of the most unlikely songs at the top of the singles chart five years apart with "Whiter Shade of Pale" in 1967 and "Conquistador" in 1972. This ultra-rare interview features organist Matthew Fisher, lyricist Keith Reid, guitarist on the first three studio albums,Robin Trower, and the late singer/pianist Gary Brooker.

Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991- Gary Rossington, Leon Wilkeson, Billy Powell, Ed King

Highly significant in their long, colorful history," Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991" was the band's sixth studio album but, more importantly, the first new studio album since 1977's fateful "Street Survivors"; their first since the tragic plane crash that year claimed the lives of three band members; their first to anoint original Lynyrd Skynyrd lead singer Ronnie Van Zant's youngest brother, Johnny, as their permanent singer; the return of original guitarist Ed King, And sadly, "Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991" would be the first album without original guitarist Allen Collins.

Mick Jagger- Wandering Spirit 30th anniversary

Mick Jagger joins me from the In the Studio archive on the thirtieth anniversary of his third (and easily best) solo effort,"Wandering Spirit". Jagger is in fine voice throughout and surrounded by crack studio musicians who bring their "A" game because, well hey, it's Mick bleedin' Jagger, okay?

Little Feat- Dixie Chicken 50th- Bill Payne, the late Paul Barrere

If only the world's most acclaimed rock musicians voted for election into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Little Feat would have been inducted on the first ballot years ago. The list of famous Little Feat fans included the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Bob Seger, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Palmer, and Robert Plant just for starters. But for most of the Seventies, they didn't sell many albums...

The Byrds- Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, the late David Crosby

David Crosby of The Byrds has died at 81. The members of the original Byrds - singer/songwriter/electric 12-string guitar player Roger (Jim) McGuinn, singer/songwriter David Crosby, the talented but tortured late singer/songwriter Gene Clark, bass player Chris Hillman, & the late drummer Michael Clarke - were always unabashed in their acknowledgment of their influences, equal parts American folk singers, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. Yet instead of being hopelessly derivative, somehow they ended up being one of the greatest imprints on both the form and substance of rock and country music to this day.  McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman join me in this ultra-rare classic rock interview covering the first four Byrds albums Mr Tambourine Man,  Turn Turn Turn, Fifth Dimension , and Younger Than Yesterday in February 1967. - Redbeard

David Lee Roth- Best Of

The incomparable David Lee Roth "Best Of" including the platinum solo album, "Skyscraper" here In the Studio.

Steppenwolf- John Kay

Mainstream rock fans would vote Steppenwolf into the Rock Hall easily if only for pretty much single-handedly putting hard rock and its term "heavy metal thunder" onto American Top 40 radio with "Born to Be Wild". Lead singer John Kay is my guest In the Studio.
