Double H, you just hit a good note, but forgot about, Salon and Saloon, Alabama Rain, Dreamin' Again, I got a Name, One less set of Footprints, and one of my favorites, Photographs & Memories, along with from The Righteous Brothers's Unchained Melody, You've lost that Lovin' Feelin', and my favorite, Georgia on my Mind, is by far one of Bill Medley's best. The Temptations, The Way You Do The Things You Do, My Girl, Ain't Too Proud To Beg, I could go on and on, but there's not enough room in this space for it, thanks.

Speaking of Bill Medley, Brown Eyed Woman is another song that should be played on any oldies station..Coming out in June of 1968, it caught me by surprise because I wasn't aware that Bill and Bobby had a brief splitup. I remember buying the album Re-Birth a year or so later out of the Woolworths cut-out bin. Looked at the back cover, and yikes!! No Bill Medley. Other great Righteous Brothers songs are Go Ahead and Cry, Ebb Tide, and Just Once In My Life.

I find it very difficult to choose between Bill Medley's version of Georgia on my Mind or Ray Charles's, they're both very good, but I think Bill Medley puts more feeling into it, and I sure can't argue about Brown Eyed Woman, I thought it was great when they got back together again, was saddened to hear that Bill Medley had died. I'm a big fan of the Eagles, the quaint essential American Band , Take It Easy, Witchy Woman, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Best of my Love, and of course, Hotel California. I can go back a little further to Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, with Woman, Woman, Believe Me, Kentucky Woman, M'Lady, and By the time I get to Phoenix, before Glen Campbell recorded it.

I still do a radio program, and although I've thinned it out a bit, I have roughly 2000 lp's, and probably twice as many cd's - 78's, 45's, casettes etc too. But i realized long ago, I'm not so much a collector or an audiophile as I am a music lover. Still, I have some interesting rarities, half a dozen Sun Ra LP's with hand colored cardboad sleeves for instance.

Sun Ra has an interesting catalog that goes back to the late 50's. From what I've heard the best of sun Ra material is the Impulse/abc material. And the ESP label as well is real collectible. I don't have my book with me but if memory serves Sun Ra put out close to 75 albums.

ptsum, nice post... I have to admit that when I read "...The Eagles, the quaint essential American Band" I smiled because in the 70's they were the biggest bunch of peyote eaters west of the Mississippi... sure it mellowed them out... there is a documentary out there somewheres on The Eagles on vhs or dvd, if you are a fan it would be worth your while to seek it out... Take it Easy. T&C

Yea, but look at the music they produce, I do believe a lot of it had to do because they were high.

agreed... I know it was a staple in the music selection, 8-track, cassette, or album back in the day as it was... like Journey was in the 80's... whether we liked it or not it had to be available... wonder why.

T&C,I believe it was mostly a carry over from the late 60s and 70s seem to be the "In Thing" to do at the time unfortunately, but some good and innovative music came out of that time frame.

I have turned my vinyl collection over to my 14YO who loves them. He can identify more bands from the 70s than I can.

Anybody have any bootleg albums? I just have one- Allman Brothers.
