    I'll just post up "some" of the album covers of my all time "get high" favorites. There are soooo many more.

    I wonder how many of you can recognize these.

    Keep 'em small guys so this thread doesn't take up toooo much bandwidth. No names. Just pics.

    I'm sure many of you will recognize the majority of those albums.

    Yeah. Saw Tull on the Aqualung tour, here at the Forum. Had 3rd row center. One of the best concerts I ever saw. Anderson was in top form. Fucking LOUD, but not as loud as The Who. I think Townsend wanted to make everyone as deaf as he was. I think Live at Leeds captured more of who The Who was (lol) than any other album they did, although the band said they thought it was one of their worst performances.

    lwien, saw that concert as well. great show. I saw a who concert in washington where townshend put the wammy bar through his hand and had to stop playing. was bummed at first then excited because I thought it might be the last show ever....saw the first show days after entwistle died.

    I agree about live at leeds. it was widely considered by critics to be one of the best live albums of all time.... the who were always being contrary to whatever was being said about them. I think they just liked being dicks (at least townshend) speaking of live, frampton comes alive is another.

    Best concert I ever saw was when Roger Waters toured through with his Dark Side of the Moon tour... conveniently, the second time I smoked pot and the first time I enjoyed it! I remember walking up at the first intermission to get a hot dog, ordered it, and suddenly the paranoia set in as I didn't want the hot dog. I felt ashamed spending $5 on something I didn't want.

    I ended up walking what felt like two miles (in reality 15 ft.) to the condiments stand, threw some mustard on, went back to my seat and gave it to the stoner who was passing my friend and I joints. He on the other hand was thrilled by it. :lol:

    Now if you had to guess my age based on my catalogue of faves, what might you guess?

    ob, I used to go to soooo many concerts. Every fucking weekend. Tried to time the acid drops so that we wouldn't start peaking on the freeway traveling to the venue :uhoh: . But I gotta say, out of all them, the one that sticks in my mind the most was Hendrix when he was with the Band of Gypsies. It was his last performance here before he died. One of our friends sitting next to me said that he came in his pants while Hendrix was playing Machine Gun. :lol:

    Such good times.

    Yeah. I remember going into the Forum high as hell, and coming out after the concert and having to wait in the parking lot till everyone left 'cause we couldn't remember where the fuck we parked. :ninja:

    lwien,
    I agree. I am not your age (I am 40) but I have seen some legendary performances in my day. I never got to see hendrix and curse the gods of music (hendrix maybe?) that I did not get to see him. His music still resonates today. We need a thread about best concerts ever seen. or best times at shows. I once was invited into ziggy marleys trailer after a show and hung out for a while. that was a good time. I was also once so wasted I could not use my backstage pass to dave Matthew's because I could not find my way backstage. :p

    Yeah, that was a pretty popular album. I liked him when he was with Humble Pie, but he got a bit too middle-of-the-road for me when he went solo.

    Matty, I have no idea. But if I had to guess, I'd say somewhere in your mid 20's being that I know that there are a lot of younger people that are still into the music when music was breaking such new ground at every turn.

    I like your Joni Mitchell pick. Back in the early 70's, I lived in a place called Topanga Canyon. At that time, there were a lot of musicians living there. Anyway, the city was thinking about making Topanga Canyon Blvd a 4 lane street going thru the canyon, so some of the artists that lived in Topanga at the time decided to throw a benifit concert together in order to keep it a two lane street, just for those who lived in Topanga, so they took over this small club in the Canyon called the Topanga Corral. It was a really small club. Could hold about 80 to 100 people max. I was really fortunate to get in. Who played? Neil Young, Joni Michell and The Eagles. Solo sets as well as playing all together. Mostly all acoustic.

    Also saw The Zeppelin and The Doors in a small club in Hollywood called the Whiskey along with Elton Johns first concert here at the Troubadour. The Byrds at the Pandora's Box. Small club venues like this are a real treat.

    Just really fortunate to be living in LA while all this was going on. Great memories..........:)

    Thanks! Joni Mitchell is a product of my province actually! Such a fantastic artist, and she's put out albums in so many genres, it's just a testament of her skill. Folk to jazz to rock... and her jazz stuff in particular is amazing. Blue has always been my favourite of hers though.

    I am completely jealous of all the opportunities you've had to see such fine musicians in their prime. Granted, I'm in the second "wave" of 70's artists doing reunion tours and "get-me-some-extra-cash-because-i-spent-all-of-mine" tours. In that regard I've been able to see Pink Floyd, Neil Young (who, for his age, had more energy than some young artists I've seen!), James Taylor and several others. I would give my left nut to see EJ in his heyday though, being a pianist myself. It's bad enough you got to see him back then, let alone in a club setting. :o

    And I'm actually 19 hehe... legal in Canada though!

    All of you have such great taste in music! If I could muster up the will to take the time to post up a bunch of images, I would, but I just don't feel like it...lol...The new Flying Lotus album "Cosmogramma" has a badass cover, google it. Been listening to this vaked outta my mind almost daily. If you are in to jazz, or experimental music, or electronic beats, check this album out. He is Alice Coltrane's nephew, and his family influence definitely shows.
    edited to add- this album is also great in how dense and almost disorienting it was the first couple listens, and now when I listen to it, everything sounds so natural and connected and it flows with a definite logic that you just get caught up in. It goes from sounding complex and alienating to being almost simple and welcoming after repeated listens. This is what makes it such a rewarding listen.
