Iron Horse - Rocket Man

Interesting take and nice tone on the vocal, and close harmonies.

^^^ loved that!
Even before hearing the bonus bass solo!  :-D

IMO the lyrical content of that song is very succinct and brings a melancholy feeling to me... even with that tempo and beautiful harmonies.

Thanks for that one Dave.

I'm playing a show this afternoon with these folks. We were a band, once upon a time... these days, we just get together for the occasional reunion gig. This kinda' cheerful tune leads off the first set today:

Dave, great version of Rocket Man!  I agree with Pauldo, great song, but kind of sad.   “...mars ain’t the kind of place to raise a kid...”; ...who knows what the future may bring!  :)

Listening to the greatest radio station in Milwaukee (WMSE, they play everything from Little Jimmy Dickens to Funkadelic to Zappa and all points in between), anyhow I heard this song and said to my self:
"Self I says, I have never heard this Yes song before"

Well turns out it wasn't Yes, it was Star Castle playing Lady of the Lake.

The lead singer Terry Luttrell was the original singer for REO Speedwagon AND it turns out that the original bassist of Star Castle - Gary Strater owned himself a very nice Alembic... seen in this short clip.

Had a dream about this album the other night... it was being sold for 77 cents!
I already own it...  :o

Speaking of Starcastle,

Guitarist Bruce Botts offers a great bass instructional DVD by the late Gary Strater!!

I have a copy , it's really good!!

Starcastle is a fantastic prog-rock band. They never got the credit they justly deserve. Thanks, guys, for posting the links.  :)

Been enjoying the Jack Casady.  :)

Here's one with he and Jorma, that I often do with my Cousin Graham.

Yeah Jack.  8)   Really, how do you describe him?  His energy and focus while playing is truly awesome.

Hot Tuna's self titled debute album was my first exposure to them, Hesitation Blues was on that as well as this one:

I loved playing this one but somehow it just doesn't sound correct when I do it...  :o
