Re: Albums That You Shelved After One Listen

^ Those first 2 or 3 Mahavishnu lp's are excellent...Goodman found a band that was as good as if not better than his own abilities.
The Flock were interesting imo but didn't have the chops he had.

Re: The Bill Wyman years - the ultimate Rolling Stone tune poll!

I like the early lp's the best (64-74) and for me up to Goats Head or Rock n Roll (1974), that's about when they ran out of ideas imho...there are a few good tunes after that but they became a parody...

Re: Obscure Music: Rock, Jazz, etc

They, Gravy Train, did 4 lp's and most of them are on you tube.
I like that early Brit proggy blues rock sound from 1968-1972 or so..there were a few US bands also but the Brits had it down.

Re: David Bowie versus Elton John!

I think if one looks at the lps by both from 1969-1980 the material by Bowie carries more weight and gravitas than Elton's stuff....though as mentioned Elton did some nice songs in his career.
