Second and last Fight release. Missed this one on last month's RSD Drop, very bummed. It was going for $175.00(!) on eBay. Stumbled over it, sealed, for $20 at my local shop.

Don't need new music until this is organized.

I’ve been on a huge Redd Kross kick.  This is one of the greatest TV performances I’ve ever seen.

Max Middleton, Tony Hymas and the mighty Simon Phillips. I saw this tour in 1980, Universal Amphitheater. At the end of the encore, Beck hit a huge, "E" chord, stood the guitar up on the stage and grabbed the headstock with both hands. With his feet in each of the cutaways, he pogoed the guitar all over the stage with the resultant, huge crashes of glorious noise. Crowd went apeshit.

RSD 2020 reissue. If I'd have known this was 2x45 LPs, I would have passed. Turns out, it sounds phenomenal. Certainly helps the spartan production of the original release.

Classic of the genre. Great, GREAT metal. The guitar team are simpatico, songs are heavy and diverse. King Dingdong's vocals are, admittedly, an acquired taste, and I never really enjoyed his solo stuff, but it works here.

Bob Welch; the OTHER FMac guitarist. The post-Peter Green era kind of gets the short shrift from blues fans, but I dig it. All of the BWelch era...I dig it.

ETA: I’ll make an exception for, “Penguin.” The best songs are McVie’s, she owns that LP. Rest of it seems a bit unfocused.

I have a vivid memory of a post-FMac Bob Welch hosting The Midnight Special (a quick Duck Duck Go indicates that was Season 7, 15 June 1979, so I was not yet 15).  I had no idea who he was, but I definitely noticed while playing "Ebony Eyes" he was holding his left hand in "that shape."  I watched MS and Don Kirchner's constantly trying to understand how to play guitar and this "shape" kept coming up - ends up it was a root-on-low-E barre chord.

I also remember him eliciting a cheer from the crowd about his choice in clothing and remarking 'fashion was kind of one of his things...'  Why can I remember this?

It was decades (internet age) before I made the Fleetwood Mac connection (my first exposure to FM was Rumours on eight track), but that was after I made the Peter Green/FM connection...

Digging Bonamassa's new Royal Tea. Songwriting partly with Bernie Marsden. Usually, I'm not a Bonamassa guy. But this one comes to my likes.

I gave the new Elvis Costello a spin today. Pretty good. Varied.

Yipes, what a killer live LP! I used to own, "Mahogany Rush: LIVE!", BITD, but never really followed Frank's music. My loss.

When I took lessons from Mary Friedman, he mentioned what an influence Marino was on his own playing. Ulrich Roth, too.

The Grail, the Grail! I have seen it!!

This was stupidly expensive, but glad I snagged a copy. All killer, no filler. This will keep me in line until the 8-CD box of, "SITN", is released this month.

I passed on this on RSD because I'd ordered the 8-CD box (which is already in my Amazon Music library).  I've listened to a song or two, and it's really good.

I did pick up the Marino even though it was RSD First - not sure if that means there will be a subsequent CD or just more vinyl, but I decided not to wait.  I've only recently started to listen to Marino, despite my best friend being a long-time Marino fan.
