Deep Purple, 1973 at the Boston Garden. I was 13 years old. My big cousin Tommy took me in to see them. He was the star quarterback of the high school football team. It was my very first concert. I started working that year. I earned $1.85 an hour. I washed dishes after school and saved for college. My bank gave me a real passbook and 5% interest on my deposits. I went to a state college and got a four year degree and didn't owe a dime at graduation. That inexpensive, excellent education has served me magnificently throughout my life. How times have changed. Some for the good and some for the bad. Some of the good is gone. I have the memories of beautiful women of my youth and all of the joy and pain that those romances bore me.

Your post title made me remember a pleasant memory. I'll never forget my cousin Tommy for creating such a wonderful memory. PEACE.

It bothered me for many years.



Decades in fact.





One summer night back in 1978 I had a little transistor radio. My first electronic device. Small and battery operated I would listen to a few songs in bed, switch it off, and go to sleep.

One night the DJ said "and now the new song by..." anyway whatever, I had heard DJ's say that before. The song usually wasn't that good. But the song I heard was great.

So here is the problem.
I never heard the song again.
And worse, some group called the Steve Miller Band immediately came out with a similar sounding song, but it wasn't as good. Something about a crate of papaya and other meaningless references. I mean I was there! For the great wave of people going to the beach, camping on small islands, catamarans, sail boats, and all day in the sun. I had never seen a crate of papaya and no one I knew particularly liked them.


Never heard the song I liked again. But goddam this freakin Steve Miller idiot Band was everywhere. Blasting other, better, songs off of all the radio stations. Then the movie "Jaws" hit, and America stopped going to the beach.

A decade later, Steve Miller is selling Best of Albums. Summer parties in College always seem to have at least one of his songs. But it just reminded me that people with better publicity obliterate people with real talent. And I still didn't even know the name of the song I liked, or who made it.






A decade later the internet.
I search and search. No luck. No one knows what I'm talking about. Everyone on the Net in those days is either too old or too young.


A decade later, around 2008 I search the internet again. Searching my memory for a lyric, a keyword, something, anything. Nothing.


But now it is really bothering me. Nostalgia has made this into the best Summertime Song I _ have _ ever _ heard, and I can't even remember a single lyric.

One night I go into full google-fu and youtube-search. I just knew it was real. I wasn't imagining it.
SIX HOURS LATER the sun is rising, I feel like an idiot for wasting an entire night, but I'm driven.

I don't stop. I must have done thousands of search variations. Sampled hundreds of video results.

And then...


And then ... I found it.


Ladies and Gentleman: my obsession. After thirty plus years. I got to hear the song Again.



May I present to you Jay Ferguson.

Oh , yeah .Got to see them a few times here at the old Fox theater (not to be confused with Fox news , no relation)
There was one album that did not receive much publicity that I liked - Black Sabbath, Vol. 4 and Snowblind

And a little side story - I had every single album that was ever produced by Black Sabbath (including Vol 4) . I came home one night and decided to listen to some (rough night at work). Could not find them anywhere . Asked the wife if she had seen them. And this is a true story - She had donated them to her church charity sale. What was the old Ripley's saying

Believe it , or not.
Ya just cant make that kinda stuff up.....

Young and in love ? I.E I have no clue. She said she no longer had set them down and they sold. I mark it down to the pure hilarity of it all...

Great thread! I was listening to Deep Purple - 'In Rock' lp a couple of hours ago while making dinner, then stumbled on this thread, haha.

Nektar: 1973 Remember the Future

I was lucky enough to find these dirt cheap at a second-hand shop near my old place... Both great bands, Camel too!


Another lucky find, & it's probably one of my favourite rock albums from the '70s, though I'll just post the best known song here... Turn it up!
