question/hint?

 

is it a collaboration where they are playing together? Or a various artists recording?

Incredibly diverse LP. I think it was the solo debut for this gifted soft rocker. The big hit came to represent a philosophy of the California hippie-types. Love this album.

 

It was in the can, & Jimi passed. Hence it was subsequently dedicated to James Marshall Hendrix.

Im not sure what the album was called but wasnt the artist who released it Stephen Stills, im pretty sure it was around the time CSN were releasing solo albums. If its the same album I remember than I believe it also feature Booker T. Jones and Ringo Starr. I think...

Ahh, this new site is drivin me nuts! Quote thing has changed...

You nailed it IR Babs. Stephen Stills indeed.

Jimi's track is more subtle & understated. Clapton lays down a SCORCHING solo(one of his best?)  'Love The One Yer With' was the big hit.

Think of a 2-decade janitor, with mop & bucket..likely "cleaned up" less than EC did, from most reports.

Read the biography of Patti Boyd(beauty married to Harrison, then his bud, Clapton), & it's supposedly a miracle he's lived this long.

Did you know Clapton's dad was Cdn(WW2 baby), he had a half bro in Van who also played guitar & had substance issues? Was reading this in a Van daily, some 20 yrs back...

Ever met any of the legends nux?

 

a guy that used to work for me had a good story of his dad (bar musician at the time) 

 

anyways rod Stuart and co rolled up on him in a limo and asked where there may be a party.  It went on from there as to be expected.

 

unfortunately I've never met any of the greats.  I'm 39, so a bit late.

No, afraid I never really got the chance-didn't hang out in them circles.

47 now, & I realize how strongly music brings back vivid memories. Whether good times or hard, music's always connecting & sorting out the nostalgia.

Interesting to hear the 60's & 70's tales..them guys got away with everything, & nothing was PC-maybe that's why the tunes were so great? :^)

Good ? riff, you've got me there(Stairway, of course?) I know off Zep lV another tune was tribute to the (then) gorgeous Joni Mitchell. Page & Plant both really dug Joni, I've read.

Also, which UK artist suggested they never wrote ballads, which prompted the beautiful 'Rain Song'?
