No Theme Thursday

I will come right to the point. There is no theme today, just music memories between 1963 and 1981.

There you go, I could not have explained this medley any better than that. 🙂

    Well that was a quirky toe tapping medley!
    You’re right you can have a fun medley w/out the Beatles or a theme but I think there was a theme…no theme 😂

      Thank you, Mary Helen!
      There definitely was a theme, and that was no theme 🙂

    The medley may not have had a single theme, but intertwined, it had many.
    You may not have played the Beatles, but you did play Guess Who, which was a Canadian band that played a few similar sounding songs…and a song which mimics the Beatles almost exactly – “Mr. Blue Sky” by ELO.
    Thank you for the Iron Butterfly song, “In the Garden of Eden”. That was a song that I listened to a lot during the Psychedelic years.
    It amazes me how bands worked with each other as you demonstrated with Brook Benton, Tony Joe White & Billy Swan. It’s nice to see all of the “friendly” competition.

      Thank you, Jim!
      I appreciate all the kind words, and as I told Don, I’m sure you understand why I don’t type a full response.

    Oh boy, you pushed all my buttons today. The theme could have been “Don’s Favorite Groups Part One”. I could listen to Colin Blunstone all day. I never a bought Guess Who record but I do like there work. I think I told you before the the first live music event I ever went to had the Brook Benton big band playing for all the groups appearing. OK, Iron Butterfly, I honestly think that having such a big hit right out of the gate hurt them. The retrospective that came out a few years ago is fabulous! I often listen to it. Recorded at FILMORE East from 2 live shows. John Fogerty his solo work is as good or better then his CCR stuff Jan & Dean to my mind as performers are equal to The Beach Boys. I dreamed of getting my Hot Rod because of them. ELO Jeff Lin is a genius, just ask any of the BEATLES. THE Kinks my all time favorite British group. And I love British groups! What a great mix today! Do it again. Ray you are the Master!
