It never ceases to amaze me how the 'audience' sits so quietly :shock:

A performance, if done right, can mesmerize an audience. Janice Joplin was a good example of this. Another was the Funkadelic's Maggot Brain. Check it out. Amazing guitar work! Although the album release had a vocal prelude this is totally instrumental. At the time it was unusual for a black band to put out something so off the wall. All their other music was more main stream for the time and, to be honest, I didn't much care for it. Still, I LOVE this rip!

Here is another epic song. This is Leslie West and Mountain doing Nantucket Sleighride.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oa7pDgF8rrY

If you were fortunate enough to see any such epic songs in a live concert as I was with Iron Butterfly and IN- A-GADDA-DA-VIDA. So much talent! Lead guitarist was actually a first seat concert violinist.

you will know that you will be totally silent. These epic songs took thousands of hours to put together and to interupt the performance would be an insult to the band.

And then there is King Crimson with Court of the Crimson King.

%2Bking%2Blong%2Bversion%26qpvt%3Dking%2Bcrimson%2Bcourt%2Bof%2Bthe%2Bcrimson%2Bking%2Blong%2Bversion%26FORM%3DVDRE


The point is that the audience would be silent during any such epic song as to be anything else would be an insult against the effort to produce. Such epic songs were not a matter of someone being drunk and throwing down lines. These were extreme efforts that will last for years to come.

Well, the music is not my style (guitar twanging hurts my ears, lol), but the scenery was breathtaking.

I really did like most of Janis Joplin, especially "Me and Bobby McGee".

I totally agree, i guess i didn't make myself clear... what amazes me is that today's youth want to dance like crazed dogs and/or focus on the front of a tiny screen on a mobile phone instead of using the best camera in the world that already has the best memory in the world, their own eyes and brain.

I just don't get why you'd want to go to a live concert and not focus on what's in front of you so it's imprinted into memory, they must miss so much by focusing on a phone (or jumping up and down like a rabid dog), you might as well save the cost of the concert and watch someone elses recording later because the chances are your recording is going to be naff... and you missed the concert... there seems to me to be some kind of credence associated these days with being there for the sake of being there, instead of being there for what is happening in front of your eyes and living the experience.

I don't get it, but maybe that's just me?

I can't help feel like a bong and incense sticks are needed to read this thread LOL

Just so all are absolutely clear, you will never meet anyone more anti-drug than myself, I do look at the 60's & 70's with rose tinted glasses though :geek:

I was going to post a link to Rush Xanadu but the video quality wasn't that great so you're getting Rush The Trees instead, Hemispheres is another of my all time favourite albums:
