“spirit in the sky”

THE SONG “Spirit in the Sky” celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Norman Greenbaum’s sole Top 40 hit and gold single, which reached No. 3 nationally in 1970. Norman was first heard on the radio in the prior decade as a singer, guitarist and songwriter as a member of Dr. West’s Medicine Show and Junk Band. The quintet’s novelty song “The Eggplant That Ate Chicago” reached No. 52 in 1966, sounding like a Lovin’ Spoonful campy movie song. Norman told Goldmine, “It is very campy. That was my first Top 100 single. I was part of a psychedelic jug band. We painted our faces and had a light show and were one of the first bands who did that in Los Angeles. Rather than have a rock and roll band,…

THE GRATEFUL DEAD The Contender For The Cornell Crown, Buffalo 5.9.77 5 x LP This 5 LP set with custom-etched 10th side, features arguably the best-ever renditions of “Help>Slip>Franklin’s” and “Comes A Time”. Remastered by Jeffrey Norman from the original analog board tapes and produced for release by David Lemieux. CHEAP TRICK Out To Get You Live! 1977 2 x LP In June 1977, bursting with kinetic energy while recording follow-up In Color, the group spontaneously booked a handful of club shows at The Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, knocking out audiences with an onslaught of down-‘n’-dirty rock righteousness – including favorite songs that wouldn’t appear on albums for years. Released for the first time ever and newly mixed by two-time Grammy Award winner Guy Massey (The Beatles, Ray Davies, The Jayhawks), Out…

10 albums that changed my life

REB BEACH Reb Beach was certainly one of the top guitar slingers of the ‘80s, performing and recording with Winger and Whitesnake and collaborating with the likes of Alice Cooper and Night Ranger. Beach is now releasing his first instrumental album which is a culmination of more than 30 years of intense work on his craft. The record, A View From the Inside, comes out November on Frontiers Music and it is intense in so many ways. It is blended with amazingly beautiful melodies that dig deep to the roots of a variety of musical genres. Beach, selling multiple platinum records and having no less than six Top 40 singles with the band he co-founded with Juilliardtrained singer Kip Winger, not only has proven his musical prowess but has honed his songwriting…

checking back in to morrison hotel

When The Doors entered Elektra Sound Recorders on November 4, 1969, they weren’t just starting work on their fifth album. They were also trying to resuscitate their career. And Morrison Hotel, released in February 1970, did just that. The group sounded newly revitalized and invigorated, from the rousing opening of “Roadhouse Blues” to the bluesy sign-off of “Maggie M’Gill.” Even the album’s cover art was destined to become iconic. “It was a great album to record,” keyboardist Ray Manzarek remembered in his memoir, Light My Fire: My Life With The Doors. For the 50th anniversary of the album’s release, a new reissue, released in October, features revamped sound, a second CD of previously unreleased outtakes and the album on 180 gram vinyl. It’s The Doors getting back to basics, after the…

strawberry fields forever… and ever

The year 2020 is important in Beatledom. John Lennon would have turned 80 on October 9, and December 8 is the 40th anniversary of one of the darkest days in Beatles history. Last year I started to think about December 8, 2020 — the 40th anniversary of Lennon’s assassination. I am reminded about it every day as I live very close to the Dakota apartment building where Lennon lived and was gunned down. I walk in Central Park almost every morning and often get stopped by tourists who ask me two questions: 1) Where is the Metropolitan Museum of Art? and 2) Where is Strawberry Fields? I usually walk them over to the Strawberry Fields, where there is always someone playing Beatles songs on an acoustic guitar. No matter the season or the…

THE 35TH ANNUAL Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees in The Class of 2020 include T. Rex and The Doobie Brothers. Both bands are saluted with worthy flip sides below. On November 7, the induction ceremony is scheduled to air as an exclusive HBO special in place of a live performance. “LIFE’S A GAS” — T. REX (Flip side of “Jeepster,” U.K. 1971) Britain’s T. Rex debuted in the U.S. Top 100 in 1971, first under the name Tyrannosaurus Rex with “Ride a White Swan” on the Blue Thumb label, followed by “Hot Love,” as an abbreviated T. Rex, on the Reprise label. Both singles peaked in the bottom of the U.S. Top 100. The Marc Bolan glam-rock group did considerably better in the U.S. in early 1972 with “Bang a Gong…
