    Phil Rizzuto was a closet Meat Loaf fan, I think.

    It's an Americanism that when a male is making out with a female , the further you get is a different base, leading to home plate, which is intercourse.

    That's it!

    Some songs are long and some are interminable.

    Somebody just had to mention Freebird.

    As punishment you must watch the video White Bird by the ultra hippie band "It's a Beautiful Day"

    One of those bands that I've always liked... even though I was never a hippie.

    And, there's a Gretsch connection too-- David LaFlamme playing something other than 5-string violin for a change-- In this case, he's playing a sunburst Country Club!

    Just about all the post-Barrett, pre-Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd.

    Listen to this. I had forgot how wonderful this performance is. I had this on a mixed artist tape when I was in high school and college, but hadn't listened in probably 20 years. Gene Krupa is Gene Krupa, Harry James is at his best. What I completely forgot is how the piano solo steals the show. And not because it rocks, but because it ends up being a delicate masterpiece. This is one of those things that you can listen to over and over.

    This isnt going to be a popular choice.
    Siouxsie and the Banshees “the lords prayer” . Its a tough one for me. As a Christ follower (although i’m not offended by it) i dont exactly feel like singing along. But as a Banshees fan i am glad that they put it out as an album track on Join Hands. And i really really wish id been at the 100 club to see the band literally form, take the stage and decide to play something until they had annoyed everyone.
    Give me half an hour of energy, confrontation, provocation and rebellious rock over a 10 minute guitar solo any day.

    I was going to mention/ask if anything by Hawkwind qualified... or even, in a different vein, Charlie Daniels Band "Saddle Tramp"... at least that is over 10 minutes.

    Nobody's mentioned Richard Harris' "MacArthur Park"?

    How about "Inna Gadda Davida"?

    And Lee Erikson, I like "It's a Beautiful Day", even tho they blew out my theater's Altec HF horns when they played there.

    Yep, and he referenced his own "Born to Run" along the way.

    Was listening to Jr. Brown in the truck today. His Guit-Steel Blues was 11.15 minutes long.
