    What a great album, and a must for any bassist. Dee Murray covers many styles over the course of this live album. it's just piano, bass, and drums(Nigel Ollson), with great vocals from all three guys.

    I am a huge fan of the Elton John Band, and it was listening to Dee Murray that inspired me to be a bassist. I studied the music and learned to play it note for note. When I finally got a copy of 11/17/70 (around '76) I was floored. To me it is almost a perfect live album, you can't listen to it without feeling you are a part of the audience... or in my case part of the band:)

    Sometimes "simple is best". Dee Murray was a great bassist and I really miss him. But he was around long enough to inspire me and many others I am sure.

    Any one know where I can get a digital version of the original recording, NOT the "remastered" CD... I have worn out my album...
