Deep Purple- Made in Japan- Ian Gillan, Roger Glover

When Deep Purple's limited-release double live album "Made in Japan" snuck out in that country alone fifty years ago, the title was a disparaging phrase made to imply that something was cheaply made and of low quality...So it is ironic that the state-of-the-art live hard rock recording, never bested in the half century since,"...is absolutely live. There are no overdubs..." on "Made in Japan", assures Deep Purple bass player/producer Roger Glover in my classic rock interview with him and Deep Purple singer/lyricist Ian Gillan.

Steely Dan- Can’t Buy a Thrill- Donald Fagen, the late Walter Becker

"Can't Buy a Thrill"  in November 1972 from Steely Dan this first varied assortment of smart pop from the songwriters Donald Fagen and Walter Becker sounds the least like any Steely Dan album which would follow, but my guests Donald Fagen & the late Walter Becker explain why that's the case In the Studio.

Lynyrd Skynyrd- Woman of Mine- Memphis 10-30-73

"Woman of Mine" by Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of only two Leon Wilkeson collaborations with lyricist/ singer Ronnie Van Zant, but had it not been performed live in Ardent Studio in Memphis on October 30, 1973 during a promotional broadcast on Memphis radio station WMC-FM, there is a real high probability that we would never have known of its existence...
