Default Speaking of Rock n' Roll...

With the other thread bemoaning/discussing the latest inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, how about posting some cool play lists you've assembled or just some old, forgotten songs that you love hearing...but other people may not know or remember. Could be a nice opportunity for people to discover some sweet tunes that they aren't familiar with.

I'll start with a playlist put together expressly to play (and loudly sing along to) while zooming down the highway. A bunch of the songs are obviously well known classics ("Old Days" even mentions baseball cards), but there are a bunch of hidden gems here, too, especially the ones kicking it off:

Run Runaway - Slade
Tired Of Toein' The Line - Rocky Burnette
Ride The Night Away - Jimmy Barnes
You Keep Runnin' Away - 38 Special
Already Gone - The Eagles
Second Hand News - Fleetwood Mac
Since You Been Gone - Rainbow
Do Ya - ELO
Break It Down Again - Tears For Fears
Nothing But the Wheel - Peter Wolf
Ain't Wastin' Time No More - The Allman Brothers
What Is Life - George Harrison
Old Days - Chicago
Death Or Glory - The Clash
Rock And Roll Girls - John Fogerty
I'll Drink To You - Duke Jupiter
Pump It Up - Elvis Costello
Teacher Teacher - Rockpile
Animals Medley - David Johansen

Here are some lesser known favorites, all 1960's, of course:

Beatles- Three Cool Cats
Rolling Stones- The Spider and the Fly
Buffalo Springfield- Bluebird
Jefferson Airplane- Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon
Spirit- Fresh Garbage
Jimi Hendrix- Voodoo Chile (not to be confused with Voodoo Child)
Chambers Brothers- Time Has Come Today
Richie Havens- San Francisco Bay Blues
Paul Butterfield Blues Band- East/West
Blues Project- Wake Me, Shake Me
Donovan- Legend of Girl Child Linda
Yardbirds- Shape of Things
Mothers of Invention- Return of the Son of Monster Magnet

I could go on forever, but I'll stop at a baker's dozen.

Your post gave me some soul. Namely, mentioning The Yardbirds sent me to their tune, "Heart Full of Soul," and from there I segued into "Soul Deep" by The Box Tops. Good stuff!!

"Heart Full of Soul" is another great Yardbirds hit. I think they are among the most underappreciated and forgotten 1960's bands. Being that they evolved into Led Zeppelin, and featured Clapton, Beck, and Page, they should have gotten a little more respect.

Barry,
Reading your list reminded me I had not heard one of my old favorites for a very long time.
Went to YouTube and found it live.
Enjoy.

Hi Richard,
My apologies but I lost track of this thread and just saw your post today. Great clip, thank you. I saw the Chambers Brothers perform this live in 1967 at the Village Theatre, and can still picture it in my mind's eye (six months later, the Village Theatre was renamed the Fillmore East).

Cliff- Fresh Garbage was a great song, but there was another song on the same album that became headline news a year or two ago. It was called Taurus, and a riff on that song is almost identical to the opening of Stairway to Heaven. And it was on that basis that the surviving members of Spirit (Randy California is deceased) sued Led Zeppelin for stealing it. Both bands toured together in 1969, so there really was some basis for the lawsuit. Of course Spirit lost their case, but if you listen to Taurus you will hear how remarkably close it is to Stairway.

I did not see them in the '60s but about 20-25 or so years ago I was walking up 3rd Avenue in the upper 80's. I passed a very small dive bar that had a sign in the window,, Chambers Brothers coming on,,, such and such a date.
I went with a couple of friends and we were sitting nearest the stage. It was great. There were maybe 40-50 people there.

Those spur of the moment concerts happen sometimes. If I'm not mistaken, I think all four Chambers Bros may still be living.
