New Riders Of The Purple Sage (Henry) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VAmUfCsJlA#lq-lq2-hq)
New Riders Of The Purple Sage


In the summer of 1969, John Dawson was looking to showcase his songs while Jerry Garcia was looking to practice his brand new pedal steel guitar. The two played in coffeehouses and small clubs initially, and the music they made became the nucleus for a band—the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

That same year, David Nelson, expert in both country and rock guitar, joined the group on electric lead guitar. Filling out the rhythm section in those early days were Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and engineer Bob Matthews on bass, who was later replaced by Phil Lesh. In 1970, Dave Torbert took over on bass and the New Riders played every chance they got. Soon enough, smoky clubs all over the San Francisco bay area were filling up with whooping, foot-stomping crowds as their music got tighter and more dynamic. They began to tour extensively with the Dead, and in December of 1970, Spencer Dryden, who had previously showed his impeccable drumming style with the Jefferson Airplane, had stepped in on drums.

Post by: kiwi49er on July 23, 2009, 07:29 PM
I don't count my generation as over yet.  So I'm still open to there being something better. ;)

Youngin' - Johnny Cash - "Ring of Fire" 
Thought about John Denver "Rocky Mountain High" here. Parents albums had an influence

Teen - GnR- "Paradise City" 
To many rock bands to narrow it down really. Found Sabath and Judas Priest by the time I was 10

20's - Linkin Park "Crawling" 
Really hard to pick this as it's when my interest and ability to purcahse and explore music grew.

30's (almost over) - Pot Belleez "Dont Hold back"
Again to many to choose from.  MP3 has changed everything.

There is probably better choices if I split it by genre but the above are all in current rotation on the ipod.



Title: Re: Best song of your generation
Post by: mikenchico on July 23, 2009, 09:36 PM
Well I've been at this one for 6-7 hours now. I gotta agree with most of what you all posted.

gwm - For what it's worth would be on my list
Steve - redeemed himself, sometimes his favorite from a group makes me go WT?? but they did good songs ... LOL ... But Neil's Ohio is epic, the studio versions guitar work makes you FEEL the national guard marching in to subdue the students
RX - The Beatles, I was weaned on them, the medley is a fav, but Oh, Darling with its guitar that just defines a nagging partner. Then in Rain, "I can show you that when it rains or shines, it's just a state of mind", what a statement & Ringo's drum work, you just gotta LISTEN to it. I Want You (she's so heavy) Crank up your speakers, until you can feel it, put on the headphones, lay on the floor and drift away with the storm, when they cut it mid-bar at the end I guarantee you will skip at least two heartbeats as you come back to earth, I used to do that with the kid, we would both gasp, grab our chest and look at each other to see if we were back. The rooftop concert from Let it Be, after all the fighting when they got together and just played their joy still shined through. The forum wouldn't let me list the rest, Across the Universe, Helter Skelter... Plus what they did on their own. No way to choose 1 fav.

Where did I go when I started looking? Bob Dylan's Tangled up in Blue & It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry and 100 more from Bob. Then off to the Grateful Dead, Friend of the Devil and a dozen more from them. The Band's The Weight. Steppenwolf's Pusher. Niel Young, where to even start, Down by the River. Lynrd Skynrd, Charlie Daniels, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zep, and on and on ...

But a song we hoped would define our generation ... hoped, fought & died

We are all living so much longer now.......how can we choose "OUR Generation"....the songs of the fifties and sixties would make sense for someone my age, however, the DEAD and Pink Floyd and Zep continue on, not to mention Abbey Road, and so many more that I can't remember...............I'm sure I'm in the second stage of alzheimers, but  I can remeber lyrics that embarrass my children...................you know?  ....remeberin every word of every song that Dylan, Jimi, the band, etc.    how ccan someone be brain dead, but remember the lyrics of all the songs just   hearin' the melody?

 My brother came home with this album from some group called Canned Heat. I think it was in 69. We start playing it and out comes this. I must have heard it a thousand times since.

Title: Re: Best song of your generation
Post by: kiteking on July 26, 2009, 07:38 AM
In October of 1968, Canned Heat released, Living the Blues, which included, "Going Up the Country". Alan Wilson's incarnation of Henry Thomas’ "Bull-doze Blues" was almost a note-for-note copy of the original, down to Thomas's instrumental break on the quills which Jim Horn duplicated on flute. Wilson rewrote the lyrics with a simple message that caught the “back-to-nature” attitude of the late ‘60s. The song went to #1 in 25 countries around the world (only reached #11 on the U.S national chart) and would go on to become the unofficial theme song of the Woodstock Festival as captured in Michael Wadleigh's 1970 documentary.

I am sure alot of work went into that list but I would have to cut at least 75% for my list. Maybe more 8)

That list missed most of my generation, mid-vinyl. It's interesting that there's no Three Dog Night, Elvis, or Beatles music on the list. I don't have a cell phone or XM, so that probably explains a lot.

It's not that there are bad songs on the list, it's that it looks like corporate "Classic Rock Radio" made it.   :(

Oh, wait!!!  They did!!  :)

My youngest brother once said,

"Most of us just keep listening to the music we had when we were 25 years old."

That list of 100 songs, sadly, is made up of songs I have heard way too many times. That doesn't make them bad, just played too often.  :(

Actually, I just found that list somewhere on the net.

  Kiteking,
 Henry Thomas was pretty dang good. I've been trying to get a collection of his songs together.
 If anyone has any mp3s by him I would appreciate you sending them to me by email.
 Thanks

I only see 2 albums, both with the same 23 songs

Lou Reed's Perfect Day - this is the version that the BBC made for as a promotional video featuring many artists.

It was 1970 and I was living in Santa Barbara. We were at a party when I first heard it and made them play it over and over. Songs back then could become your mantra and this one's stuck in my heart all these years. I miss you Janis...

Bit late, but after some consideration this one covers all the bases:

You are a quietly dark person Mr. B. How many times did you watch "Harold and Maude"? For me it was about a dozen over the decades.  8)

hey, I love that film, along with the other Bud Cort film that came out right before, Brewster McCloud, both as quirky a film as you'd ever want. I always thought the Cat Stevens soundtrack to H&M was very fitting.
