    QLB has the Frampton Live LP in vinyl safely tucked away somewhere in his mother’s house. Great music. Frampton peaked early then faded and I’m not sure why. He’s a lot like Gino Vanelli who is still a great entertainer and musician but was unable to translate early success into fame. Money says his works will stand the test of time.

    OK, AWD, I’m here to make you jealous. Way, way back, I saw Grand Funk Railroad at Shea Stadium in Nueva Jork. The opening act was……Humble Pie, which included the lead guitar of Mr. Peter Frampton.

    AWD, speaking of Jethro Tull, you should check out a gal by the name of Anna Phoebe who was hired by Ian Anderson as the violinist for at least one of the band’s tours. She is smoking’ hot and was also the string mistress for the Trans Siberian Orchestra for a while. Some of her single stuff is very interesting.
    1975-76 was a great time in music and FM radio was reaching it’s zenith.
    For the rest of you and those who weren’t born or too young here’s a few of my favorites.
    1) Rhiannon- the defining work by Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nix’s delicate vocals nail it in a rock classic about a Welsh witch.
    2)Dream Weaver-Gary Wright. Synthpop classic with weird Eastern philosophical influences. Distinctive in its sound and often overlooked.
    3)Dreamboat Annie ( the long version) Ann and Nancy Wilson better known as Heart establish themselves as superstars with an LP of the same name. Short and sweet, a song about one hell of a daydream.
    4)Love of my Life-Gino Vannelli. From the Gist of the Gemini LP, IMHO one the ten best albums from start to finish ever made. Superb musicians with Gino pounding out superb vocals. Highly underrated yet a classic about a guy who is clearly “smitten.”
    5)This Masquerade-George Benson from his “Breezin” album. A departure from Benson’s usual jazz guitar music, with haunting vocals about a relationship caught between success and failure. There have been many versions before and since, but George knocks it out of the park.

    • Quartier, I’m familiar with most of those songs and I agree. Songwriting sure has taken a turn for the worse with the advent of advanced technology. I’ll check out Anna Phoebe. (AWD is listening to Who’s Next as I write)
