When observing potential song subjects for October 1985's "Power Windows", Rush lyricist/ drummer the late Neil Peart saw an uncanny number of socio-political issues which have become front page headlines again thirty-five years later.

It was the mid-Eighties, and rolling the streets of Dallas/Ft.Worth felt less right in a big-block muscle car and just right in a fire-engine red BMW M3 with The Cult "Love" cassette permanently jammed in the dash player blasting "She Sells Sanctuary","Rain","Nirvana", and "Big Neon Glitter". Hard to believe it was thirty-five years ago.

...for me in Autumn 1970 with discovering the Allman Brothers Band, as it was their second album, "Idlewild South" , which was my gateway drug to a five decade musical high for what turned out to be, as legendary producer Tom Dowd put it it, "the greatest musical fusion I've ever witnessed."

Last Fall 2019 when I made what felt like a pilgrimmage to a suburban Dallas movie theater with very dear friends to see Neil Young and Crazy Horse's film of making their latest album, "Colorado" , I could not resist the comparisons to "Ragged Glory" three decades earlier.

"Light and shade," Jimmy Page once told me, speaking to the secret of Led Zeppelin's universal popularity, and never was that combination more on display than on the title song to Jethro Tull's September 1975 "Minstrel in the Gallery".

Because of production delays and the notorious rainstorm, the Woodstock "headliner" and highest-paid performer reserved to close the show, Jimi Hendrix, ended up going on in the morning light of Monday, April 18. when many of the hundreds of thousands had left. Three who remained that day and participated in the legendary performance are my guests bass player Billy Cox, drummer Mitch Mitchell, and recording engineer Eddie Kramer.

If you really want to have fun with a self-proclaimed Deadhead, first have him/ her set down their phone and then ask them to name the Grateful Dead's highest-charting Billboard album up to the band's 1987 best-seller, "In the Dark" . You'll get a lot "Workingman's Dead" and "American Beauty" guesses, and after that I'd have picked "Terrapin Station". The correct answer turns out to be the tasty mid-decade effort by the Grateful Dead, "Blues for Allah". Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, & Phil Lesh are In the Studio.

But after selling over a million copies of the album "Hints, Allegations,and Things Left Unsaid" primarily on the phenomenon of "Shine" alone, the second album in March 1995 simply under the name "Collective Soul", and containing "Where the River Flows","Gel","December(Spit Me Out)", and the gorgeous "The World I Know" is one of the strongest sets of melodies and tasteful arrangements to come from the era. And it has been remastered and expanded for a special twenty-fifth anniversary edition on both compact disc and double vinyl. Ed Roland is my guest In the Studio.

The Band's sublime third effort, "Stage Fright" , released in August 1970, went Top 5 and sold over a million copies. Widely viewed along with Bob Dylan, The Byrds, and Gram Parsons as fathers of the Americana musical movement, The Band also may have been one of rock's first alternative groups. In part one of this classic rock interview, main songwriter Robbie Robertson ("The Weight","The Night They Drove Ol'Dixie Down","Up on Cripple Creek","The Shape I'm In") helps me make that case.
