Allan Holdsworth

I had the good fortune to see Allan Holdsworth play live a few times.  He was always amazing – but, then again, I was a huge fan of Tempest!

I managed to get some of his hard-to-find records / CD’s, too:

John Wetton

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wetton

I will never forget finding Mogul Thrash, before I knew who was in them.  It was a terrible album on RCA UK.

Later, I discovered John Wetton was the bassist of Family, a band I loved very much.  I still think his best work was with Family.

Later still, he joined King Crimson…then Asia…had a solo career…while there are those who favor his K.C. activities, I always loved his work on “Fearless” and “Bandstand”, making my favorite Family 45 “Burlesque”.

Happy birthday Phil Ochs (1940), Zal Yanovsky (1944), drummer Lenny White (1949), guitarist Alvin Lee (1944) and Maurice White (EW&F) (1941).

My late brother saw The Sensational Alex Harvey Band in Germany.  I never had a chance to see ‘em, though they place right behind seeing Family play live!

Family

Happy birthday Rick Gretch (of both Family and Blind Faith) (1945) – today “Wonderwall Music” by George Harrison is released – the first Beatles’ solo album (1968).

FAMILY

The initial Family LP was produced by Dave Mason of Traffic (and it had an insert)!  The 2nd Family LP had a giant poster in it.  “A Song For Me” had an insert in it.  I never had the chance to see them play live and I would love to see that!

Floyd Cramer

Happy birthday Floyd Cramer (1933), Cleo Laine (1927) guitarist Philip Catherine (1942) and singer Simon LeBon (Duran Duran)(1958).

I have been a big Floyd Cramer fan for many years – that, and I enjoy instrumental easy listening albums.  My discography is far from complete – he must’ve had a LOT of albums for RCA!
