    Found my old Seaweed CDs & have been listening for a couple hours now while I transfer them to mp3. So happy right now. Reminds me of college and good times. Ned's Atomic Dustbin is another band that makes me smile that not many folks talk about anymore. Hell, what bass player couldn't smile at a band with two bass players, right?

    What about you?

    Yeah, I've been listening to, or should I say re-listening to Seawind of late too. I was a huge fan back in the 70's. Their music seems (IMHO) as fresh today as it was back then.
    I always enjoyed Ken ('Kenny') Wild's playing.

    Not to turn this into a Seawind topic, but I've only been able to find 1 video YouTube of the band playing together:

    If you know of any others, please post.
    Thanks...

    The Bogmen's album "life begins at 40 million". So good!

    Coincidentally, God Fodder made my short list for "favourite album cover". Mainly as I liked the colours and bold simplicity of it, in the same way as I like the Never Mind the Bollocks and Screamadelica covers.

    But more on topic, James and The Wonderstuff hold a smiley place in my heart; I seldom hear their stuff any more, but when I do it brings back happy memories and consequent smiles.

    I used to play a couple songs by Nantucket and saw them open for The Doobie Brothers. Really good band. Interestingly, they were not from Nantucket but were from North Carolina.

    Gentle Giant. Speak of a forgotten band that had kilotons of musical ideas.

    I have to go with Manfred Mann. I love "Blinded by the Light". It's just a kick a$$ song.

    Crustation never fails to get me groovin'. It's a pity that Trip Hop died in the 90's.

    Pavor was way ahead of it's time. Their stuff still rivals modern death metal bands.

    Ah yes, some local boys made good. Gotta love that gypsy queen tune.

    I use to have a gig with another Minnesota band that had a couple minor hits, they were called "CROW." Black Sabbath covered their big hit "Evil Woman" on their first record. It was OK but I liked Crow's version better. Its probably on youtube somewhere.
