Third Stage Live...

 

IF You Like BOSTON - You NEED This!

So Far, I've Posted Some Concerts from 1977, But After Finally Releasing Their 3rd Album, Boston Toured and Played The Entire Third Stage Album!

This IS One of Those Damn Near Perfect Bootlegs!
(You've Not Heard Me Say That, 'Til Now!)

This Could Be Released as an Official Live Album!
Yep! It's That Good!

PERIOD .

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

Just One Golden Earring...

 

Barry Hay... Now Where Have I Heard That Name? 

Oh Yeah, He's the Lead Singer for Golden Earring!

This Was Released as a DVD and an Accompanying CD Back in 2008 (And Has Gone Out of Print)... The Covers Included are for the CD, But There's More Tracks Included in the D/L Than Listed!


NOTE: Don't Let The BIG BAND Part STOP You From D/Ling This. It's a Big Band, But a GREAT BAND! They are Top Notch Musicians That Can Play ANYTHING! They Do Swing When Needed AND They Rock When Needed, as well! 


Barry Hay Is a Great Singer and Here He Sings a Bunch Of Songs He Likes (Includin' Songs from Golden Earring...)

Just Look at The Song Titles (Yep. Those Songs ARE The Ones You Think They Are!) That Barry Chose to Perform Live...


This Is Highly Recommended for Those That Like a Variety of Music Styles!

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

And The Piper Will Lead Us To Reason...

You May Not Have Heard Of (Or Heard...) The Band PIPER

But You Have Heard AND Heard Of 

the Band's Lead Singer and Guitarist - Billy Squier!

I Think Everyone Involved Knew From The Beginnin' 

That Billy Was "The Man" - The Star of The Show!


They All Played Their Part Great, Though...

And, Piper Made Two Great Rock & Roll Records!

'Cause The Other Musicians Were Really Good as well!


One Song From This Album Was Re-Recorded

for Billy's 1st Solo Album (The Tale Of The Tape) - 

Who's Your Boyfriend?...


NOTE: I Uploaded These Two Albums Separately (In Case You Already Have One Of Them and Need The Other) OR (IF You Want BOTH! - There's a 2 For 1 CD Set Below!)


Notice The Back Cover: ONLY 1 Person Is Pictured!?!

Piper - 1976 - Piper

https://workupload.com/file/dX74W39698B


And, Here's the Second Album by Piper...Can't Wait!

It's Another Great Straight On Rock & Roll Record!


Notice the Back Cover of the Album:

That's Billy Squier Movin' on to Bigger and Better Things!

Piper - 1977 - Can't Wait

https://workupload.com/file/a2TMvNFQMtn


Both Piper Albums were Re-Issued on a 2 For 1 CD a Few Years Back, But Has Since Gone Out of Print...

So, IF That's The Way You Wanna Have Your Piper - Here 'Tis!

A Celebration, Mr. Blue Sky's Up There Waitin'...


 The genius that is...Jeff Lynne.
Musician,singer,songwriter & producer he's done it all.
ELO,The Traveling Wilburys and of course
working with the remaining Beatles.
BBC Radio documentary.
Interviews and music,you know the score.


There's Still A Little Magic In The Air...


 An audience recording here.
But not any audience recording.
A Dan Lampinski recording.
It's fantastic,up there with a soundboard recording.
So if you're a Queen fan or a Classic Rock fan this is a must have.
A Night At The Opera on Tour so Queen
are still in their epic phase.
They're all on it at this show they sound great.
Is Brian May one of those under appreciated guitarists?
I think so.


I Strut Right By With My Tail In The Air...


 Fantastic little show here from those 
Rockabilly rebels,Stray Cats.
Relocated to the UK they recorded their first couple of albums here.
Had a couple of hit singles too.
Anyway these three guys make a great sound.
Replicating the classic early Rock 'n' Roll,Rockabilly sound.
But of course putting their own twist on it. 
Classic.

Open Fire When I Hit The Stage...


Classic Hard Rock from Dave and the boys.
That one two punch of Earthshaker & Black Tiger
put them in the spotlight. 
So here they are in '82 playing tunes from those albums.
I saw them in 1982 supporting AC/DC.
(My first show)
Still going but with only Dave as the remaining original member.
They're still worth seeing.

You're The Voice...


 Time to mellow out a little with Van the Man.
Great sounding show from 1970.
From Them to a long and successful solo career.
He's done a variety of musical styles but the 
one constant is that great voice.


...at Brighton Polytechnic


 Here's Cheap Trick from the BBC Broadcast 
of Rock Goes To College from 1979.
Riding high on the Budokan album at the time.
(Another that's in my Top 10 Live Albums)
Great little show as you would expect 
from one of the greats. 


Found All The Parts...

 

Here's Somethin' I Been Workin' On...
(One Of Those Projects I's A Tellin' You About!)

THIS Is an EARLY Cars Concert from The Rat in Boston!

It's an Audience Recording, But Actually Sounds Pretty Good!

And, Would Old Rocket Post a Recording That Sounded Like It was Recorded Out in the Parkin' Lot of the Venue, From Inside a Parked Car, With The Motor Runnin?

Now, You Remember me Tellin' about Cap'n Swing, Right?


Well, Apparently This Concert Took Place Sometime in APRIL 1977! 

Now, That's Significant 'Cause The Cars Became The Cars Sometime Around February 1977...So, That Means They'd ALL Been Together for About 2 Months at this Point! And, It Kinda Shows in Some Places...

The 1st Song, I Believe, Ben Sings...Listen Closely and He Starts to Come In a Tad too Early, And They Sound a Little Loose on a Few Songs...Elliot is Solid Throughout! 


Also, The Cars Didn't Start Recordin' Their First Album Until February 1978!


Also, Again, On THIS Recording They Do a Couple Cap'n Swing Songs: Strawberry Moonlight & Lover and a Holiday!


I Made The Covers With Those Old Bootlegs in Mind - You Know The White Record Sleeves with The Papers Pasted on...


Anyway, This Is Pretty Cool To Listen To a Band In The Makin'

I Hope You Enjoy This One As Much as I Do!

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

Tellin' Tall Tales of How it Used to Be...

 

Rose Hill Drive May Not Be a Name You Know, But They Were/Are (?) a 3 Piece Heavy Blues / Rock Band from the Mid to Late 2000's...(That I Know Of...)


They Made Some Really Good Records of Their Own Material, 
BUT, Here We Have Them Doin' Led Zep II...

This an Excellent Audience Recording and The Guys Do a Better Than Average Job Of Playin' The Classic From Start to Finish!


Not Much Else To Say, 

IF You Like This Kinda Stuff, 

I Don't Think You'll Be Disappointed!

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

Sweet Home Chicago...

 


This One Is Recommended For Die-Hard FOGHAT Fans ONLY!

It's a FM Radio Broadcast, BUT - It's Not The Best Quality!

You NEED to Know That Goin' In!

It's Not Really Terrible, But There's Somethin' Just Not Quite Right About It! Kinda Like It's Not Tuned All The Way to The Radio Station When It Was Recorded...


All That Bein' Said: We Takes What We Can Gets!


So, Give It A Try - It's Worth a Listen...It Just May NOT Be One You Keep or Listen to Often...


But, I Figured I'd Put It Out There For Those That Want It!

Sound Quality and What Each of Us are able to Tolerate, Well, That's ALL Subjective, Anyway...

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

Back in '74...

 

Here's a Couple of Bob Seger Concerts from 1974!

This First One is From The Aragon Ballroom in Dallas, Texas...

It's a Pretty Good FM Broadcast 
(Not The Greatest, But Not The Worst, Either!)

Anything It Lacks in Sound Quality Is More Than Made Up For in The Setlist!

It's Definitely Worth a Listen or Two!

Bob Seger - Dallas 1974  (192)

https://workupload.com/file/Sveub372XyC



This One Is The Better Soundin' of the Two Shows!

A Few Of The Same Songs from the Previous Show in Dallas are Played Here (Or There, I Should Say) Out in San Fran...

It's a KSAN FM - So It's Great Quality Sound!

My Guess Is That This One Came Later Than The Dallas Show, 'Cause It Seems Bob and Band are Gettin' Closer to the Live Bullet Time Frame!

But, Well, Which, IF Either You Get Is Up To You!

Bob Seger - San Francisco 1974  (320)

More Than A Feeling...

 

Ah! Now Here's a CLASSIC!

Boston Live at Long Beach 1977!

Yeah, I Already Posted the Early and Late Shows 

Recorded on March 16th, 1977...

But This Is The One From March 19th, 1977 and Was 

Broadcast (Broadcast-ed?) on The King Biscuit Flower Hour!

Excellent Sound Quality and a Great Performance 

from Tom & Brad...And The Rest, Here on Hear Rock City!

Boston had That Unique Rockin' Sound in the 70's 

That Was Just Great!

And I Still Listen to This and Their First Album From Time to Time!

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

https://workupload.com/file/KvY6fyAtJpH

It'sNaz...Again...

 

First, Here's Nazareth Opening for Deep Purple on The King Biscuit Flower Hour from Back in 1976 out there in California at The Long Beach Arena!

There's Only 5 Songs Here, But Naz Picked Some Good'uns!

This Flight Tonight is Always Good and Of Course, One of the 3 Saddest Songs I Think I've Ever Heard - Woke Up This Morning! And It's Not a Ballad or a Blues Song?

When You Don't Have Much Time 

and Want Some Naz, 

This'll Do The Trick!

Nazareth - Long Beach California 1976  (320)

https://workupload.com/file/YqdkDtJzWga



Now, If'n You's Got The Time and are in the Mood for More, Here's a Full Concert from the Scottish Ones!

They Start out Like So Many Times with Telegram

And, Why Wouldn't They? That's One Great Opening Song!

And They Get Into Some Live Versions of Quite a Bit Off 

The Hair of the Dog album on 

This Excellent Soundin' Soundboard Recording!

Like the Rarely Played Loved And Lost and Changin' Times!


EVERYONE Should HAVE THIS ONE!

It's A CLASSIC: IT'SNAZ!

Nazareth - St Paul 1976 SBD (192)

https://workupload.com/file/tPQSqgvYetx


AND AS AN ADDED BONUS:

From 1981 - Live in San Jose, California, 

Right Around the Time of Their Excellent Live Album 'SNAZ - 

Here's an FM Broadcast for You!

They Sounded a Little Different with the Addition of Billy Rankin and John Locke...

But, Still, It Was Good!

All The Information Is on the Back Cover!

Blue      Öyster      Cult!!!!

Live from The Palladium for 2 Shows (an Early and a Late one...)!

It's the Same Setlist for Both But (We Don't Care!) it's a Pretty Good Setlist for the Time and Quite Varied as well!

They start at The Beginnin' with Stairway to the Stars ("I Think I'll Sign It, Good Health To You") and Then Bounce Back and Forth with Harvester of Eyes ("That's Me") Dr. Music (Another Example of the Syndrum in the Late 70's!) to Hot Rails To Hell ("The Heat From Below Can Burn Your Eyes Out") and Then The Rest and Out!

That Other 3 Piece Band From Canada...

Here's an Excellent Quality Concert from TRIUMPH!

It was Recorded Back in 1982 Down in Florida at The Tangerine Bowl in the Summer, So You Know It Was Hot!

And So Is This Show!


Rik, Mike and Gil Rock The Sunshine State With Songs from the Then New Allied Forces Album and Some of Their Older Material!


I Always Liked the Song Lay It On The Line

"I Don't Ask For Much, The Truth Will Do Just Fine."


You Also Get a Rare Live Version of Nature's Child off the Progressions Of Power record...


And, I Didn't Even Mention The Blinding Light Show...


Plus There's a Couple Bonus Tracks from 1988 as well...

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

https://workupload.com/file/NYsrzt28aPL

Heart To Heart, Eye To Eye - Love Is A Lie...

 

This Is Hands Down MY Favorite Aldo Nova Concert!

It was Recorded LIVE in New York City, Back in 1982 (Not Sure of the Venue?) But was Broadcast on King Biscuit!

It's Relatively a Short Concert (Just 7 Songs) But Aldo and The Band Were Particularly On Fire That Night!

They Play Pretty Much the Bulk of That First Album! 

If You Really Listen to the Lyrics of Several Songs...

Someone Did That Boy Wrong! 

Aldo Seems To Have Gotten Burned by Some Girl Sometime Before Writin' Those Batch of Songs!

But, I Guess He Ended Up Gettin' The Last Laugh...

'Cause He Hit The Big Time With That Record!

Hope You Enjoy This Show Half as Much as I Do...

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

https://workupload.com/file/GvGPMXAprFh

Kinda Like Pat, But with Sax...

Anyone Remember This Band?

Quarterflash was a Band Centered Around Rindy and Marv Ross! They had a Sound, Similar, but Not Quite as Rockin' as Pat Benatar...


They had Catchy, Rockin' Pop/Rock Songs with Rindy Playin' the Saxophone!


You May At Least Remember the Hit Song Harden My Heart!?


This Is an Excellent Soundin' Concert from The Agora

 in Dallas, Texas and Broadcast on King Biscuit back in 1981...


It's Somethin' a Little Different, 

Dependin' on the Mood You're In!

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!

https://workupload.com/file/XD26pUJHgbe

They're Like Fire and Ice...

 

Found Another '79 Pat Benatar!

Live in Seattle, Washington near the End of The Year!

Similar Setlist (But, Who Cares?) to the Others...
Runnin' Out of Great Things to Say 'Bout Pat and Her Partner in Crime (and Life!): Neil Giraldo...

'Cept, I Recently Saw one of those Dan Rather Big Interview Shows on AXS-TV with Pat and Neil...(Track It Down If You Can!!)

Neil Explained Why He Plays Solos the Way He Does.

First and Foremost, He Didn't Want Them to Be Boring!
And, He Didn't Want to be THAT Guitar Player that just Goes Off In His Own Direction Regardless of What the Other Players are Doin'
And, Thirdly, He See the Whole Song as a Producer First, and then All The Individual Parts that Make Up The Song!

So, Here's Another Excellent Performance from Pat, Neil and the Rest of The Band - Rockin' In The Free World (The Home of Grunge)!

Enjoy and Play It LOUD!
