...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."

"Fool for the City", with the title song plus "Slow Ride", dominated American FM airplay from its release in September 1975 all through the following year ( #20 Billboard ). This is a bittersweet edition of In the Studio as both of my guests, Foghat co-founding guitarist/singer/songwriter Lonesome Dave Peverett and slide guitarist/songwriter Rod Price, have since passed away

It is bittersweet to share with you the World Premiere radio broadcast of INXS "X" which I was so fortunate to get to produce and host in September 1990 with guests lead singer/lyricist Michael Hutchence and keyboardist/ composer Andrew Farriss.

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".

Here are the first-person accounts by Joe Cocker and Leon Russell of a remarkable multi-media event, the Joe Cocker Mad Dogs and Englishmen US tour, concert film, and soundtrack double album on its fiftieth anniversary.

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.

In the 45th anniversary August of Marshall Tucker Band's "Searchin' for a Rainbow", we feature Doug Gray and former member Jerry Eubanks telling charming stories while surrounded by "Take the Highway" and "Can't You See" (sung by Toy Caldwell ) from MTB's 1973 debut; a scorching live performance of "24 Hours at a Time" with Charlie Daniels on fiddle; the late George McCorkle's "Fire on the Mountain","Virginia", and "Searchin' for a Rainbow".

The World Premiere radio special in July 1980 for the Lynyrd Skynyrd survivors' highly-anticipated ( and highly emotional ) return as the Rossington Collins Band on "Anytime, Any Place, Anywhere".

Keyboardist Gary Wright chose a bold pioneering effort which had never been attempted before then, with spectacular results from the songs "Love Is Alive","Made to Love You","Blind Feeling","Much Higher","Power of Love" (the only song to include electric guitar, courtesy of Ronnie Montrose), and the million-selling hit "Dream Weaver". Join Gary Wright here in a very rare In the Studio classic rock interview

"The 'Burning of Bowling Green' ," Outlaws singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist Henry Paul recalled aloud, invoking an almost mythical status like some Civil War battlefield to the 1975 Ohio music festival where we first met just weeks after the release of their first album, The Outlaws , which contained the late Hughie Thomasson and Monte Yoho's "There Goes Another Love Song" and the instant Southern Rock classic "Green Grass and High Tides".

Traffic albums "Mr Fantasy", "Traffic", and "John Barleycorn Must Die", the latter marking its 50th anniversary, included former Spencer Davis Group teen prodigy singer/organist/guitarist Steve Winwood, reed man Chris Wood, and drummer Jim Capaldi. Guitarist/singer Dave Mason, a former Spencer Davis roadie, shared a talent for melody with the other three on the first two Traffic albums, but little else personality-wise, and was cut loose for the second and final time before the second album hit store shelves.
