I just love this band. OK. Enough preamble.



hree Dog Night is an American rock band. They formed in 1967 with a line-up consisting of vocalists Danny Hutton, Cory Wells, and Chuck Negron. This lineup was soon augmented by Jimmy Greenspoon (keyboards), Joe Schermie (bass), Michael Allsup (guitar), and Floyd Sneed (drums). The band registered 21 Billboard Top 40 hits (with three hitting number one) between 1969 and 1975. It helped introduce mainstream audiences to the work of many songwriters, including Paul Williams ("An Old Fashioned Love Song"), Hoyt Axton ("Joy to the World", "Never Been to Spain"), Laura Nyro ("Eli's Comin'"), Harry Nilsson ("One"), Randy Newman ("Mama Told Me Not to Come"), and Leo Sayer ("The Show Must Go On").

A prolific band for sure. Now to my favorites...







Forgive the hair and clothes kids, it was the 70's. That's what we heard on the radio(ancient listening device
).

The flares are blinding! You could take somebody's eye out with those.
I guess cotton was cheap back then.

Great moogly moogly, that sure brings back a vivid flashback to my childhood.

My dad was in radio for 45 years and I went to ALL kinds of concerts.

Thee Dog Night is one of my earliest concert memories.

Front row stage left.

”One” has always been a favorite of mine.

Thanks so much for making me remeber what a great Dad I had and for making my day.

Funny how synchronicity works ! Yesterday I was kinda in a blue funk, sad about Syria,
Anyways my daughter is following me around trying to make me laugh, " Listen to this song mom, listen to this song mom ! " No, I say to her, I'm not in the mood ! LOL...she finally got me with " Never been to Spain "...... I actually have never been to Oklahoma, but I started singing that song like I had been !

Have appreciated this band since I first heard them as a kid.

Here is Shambala in Mono(it's true form as there only exist fake stereo foldings aside from the true mono) from a promotional copy
It peaked at #3 on the billboard list:



And here is One from a 1969 7" 45rpm single. It reached #5 on the billboard list.



Through the medium it was ment to be heard. Analog.

Even though it is through a digital end, the crispness and liveliness of the original medium still comes through.

I always flip on an lp/ep when I really want to listen to something.

Oh, and nothing compares to the goldie's era. Period.

ETA:

Just remembered that I have the 7" 45rpm single in mono from Three Dog Night:

A side : Shambala, B side: " Our ' B ' Side ".

Released on the label Probe which was owned by ABC/Dunhill records. Released 1973.

"Black and White"...great celebration of the Brown v. Board of Education decision.

I read this before on Wiki, so I thought that I'd share...the original opening lines to that song (but weren't recorded) were:

Their robes were black, Their heads were white,
The schoolhouse doors were closed so tight,
Nine judges all set down their names,
To end the years and years of shame.



They are a great band, for sure--I grew up listening to them on long trips with my dad, and sometimes even out of the tape deck that he installed in his 1930 Model A street rod. Good memories...thanks for the trip! I'm playing every single one of these right now
