I've seen much better footage from both.

Certainly it doesn't come close to Monterrey or the New Years Eve/Day shows that Band Of Gypsys came from. I suppose a case could be made that it's better than his Isle of Wight set, but even on that, it's debatable (even though Hendrix was sickly and not having a good night, the overall trio was much tighter). This was essentially Hendrix jamming with an ad hoc band assembled just a couple of weeks beforehand so naturally they weren't up to speed or anywhere near tight by the time of the show.

I was talking about the whole Woodstock thing to someone this afternoon and they brought up the Ten Years After clip as a highlight....I'd have to disagree with that as well as the tune is sunk by the overlong middle portion of it when Lee seems to be just doing some scat vocals over the beat. It hasn't aged very well IMHO.

Just my thoughts on it all anyways.

As far as guitar playing goes, Alvin Lee mopped the floor with Hendrix, Santana, et al, at Woodstock, IMO.

I've never seen TYA's entire set from Woodstock, but based on "Going Home" and the three minutes or so out of the 10 that Lee actually plays guitar on it, you may be right. Too bad that's just at the beginning and end of the track though, what's inbetween is an ultra long snore that dulls the track's impact and edge. I go home-a, skeebopawow, Whhhhaaaaaoooowwww, do the stomp.

A classic from the early 90's. I spent alot of time rocking the bridge out on the kit on this one.

When the Brian Wilson writes for Crosby Stills Nash Young, you get something like Fleet Foxes.

Quick hit melodies/harmonies: White Winter Hymnal


Long play...beautiful stuff: Sun Giant/Sun it Rises

Hey Hogan...check these guys out. The best band youve never heard of. I think that they are right up your alley. Somewhere near XTC...Chomsky.



Mas Chomsky...at the Granada...a really cool venue in Dallas

You've posted Chomsky before, it seems to be pretty cool stuff.

Are you based in Austin TX? I have an old bandmate of mine down there that's currently with The Mocktigers. Ever hear of them?

I have been out of the Austin scene for years...I'm currently playing in the Dallas area. We may be down there for South By Southwest, but Im not sure about that yet.

Was going to put up Fleet Foxes today, but I see someone else is educating the unwashed masses to this awesome group. If you like Fleet Foxes you might also like Iron and Wine.

I'm always amazed that the Eels (Mark Everett) didn't become as big as I thought they would. I also find it fascinating that his father created the theory of alternate universes.

Eels have alot of superfluous material in their catalogue.

Eels sometimes remind me of a the late Beatles records. Lots of experimentation, constant changes in sound and material, but none of it is crap.
