I have encountered many big Rush fans over the years at shows and elsewhere and I am always surprised to find out how many have never heard this Max Webster/Rush collaboration "Battlescar" from 1980.  I guess we had better access in Buffalo by being able to tune into the Canadian rock stations.

I always liked songs incorporating circus music (sorry, I do not have video for any)...

 

The classical example (as far as rock music is concerned), and one of the most innovative McCartney tunes...

 

 

Brilliant, but much darker...  The United States of America made only one album, but it is outstanding. No guitars, but very primitive synthesizers and "ring modulators". One of the most innovative bands of the late 1960s...

 

 

Another short-lived band. The Flock combined a brass section (a la Chicago or Blood, Sweat and Tears) with a violin (Jerry Goodman).

Have had both of the last two a few times... just never connected with either. In the theme:

 

 

 

 

What is the last time you ever saw a drummer reading sheet music? Me neither lol... Annie sounds great.

Admittedly, the name of the band first piqued my interest. But despite the name there in nothing R-rated in their music and lyrics, just smart power pop. They are mostly Canadian, with two Americans mixed in (the drummer and the red-haired vocalist - Neko Case).

They used to play this a LOT on 97 Rock, and I would catch this most frequently on Fridays.  Great track, tho!

Fascinating track, and band.  Alan Parsons didn't play that many instruments on this track, if memory serves, and the singer was from Pakistan (Karachi), which was rare for the time.  (Some) people forget, also, that Alan Parsons was involved with production on a number of the Beatles' albums as well as with Pink Floyd.

This morning our local paper announced a concert by a group that had been voted Best Band in Austin in 2017. Always on the lookout for something new I decided to check them out. This was absolutely not what I had expected - they blew me away. Here they are - Shinyribs...

Darkness on the Edge of Town turns 44 this month.  Here's a classic from this great album.

 

 

Bruce Springsteen was HUGE in Phoenix AZ right from the start of their touring career. I lived there from 1980  - 1986 and saw him play a show at a concert venue when they lost power. Literally in the middle of the concert the place went dark. It takes  seemingly forever for they to get the power back on.  Then a spotlight comes on in the dark, pans to the stage and it's Bruce with a push broom just goofballing LOL...and even with the power delay, he played over a 4 hour show He stated at that concert how Phoenix was so supportive of he and the band how appreciative he was. And he played his ass off. THAT'S why he is THE BOSS.
