@sunburnwilly - believe it or not Disco is actually a hard style to perform well 

 

What is disco? 4 on the floor with high-hat? 

"ZZ Top released Eliminator on March 23, 1983. MTV was exploding onto pop culture. The album's mix of dirty blues riffs and dance-floor-friendly drum machine rhythms was just the ticket."

Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush played in my hometown as many times as ZZ did in the late 70s. His tunes are the same caliber as Jimi's mostly. His shows would blow you away, Teddy and Aerosmith or whoever he opened for away also. His "live" from the late 70s sounded just like part of his shows.

Here's one more for the road tonight!

 

Canada's Best!

...Sorry Alex L.

The Mahavishnu Orchestra is considered one of the most important jazz rock/fusion bands of the 1970s. It was founded in 1971 by John McLaughlin. In addition to McLaughlin (guitar), the band featured Jerry Goodman (violin), Jan Hammer (keyboards), Rick Laird (electric bass) and Billy Cobham (drums). Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Inner Mounting Flame #75 in its 2013 list The 100 Best Jazz Albums

Soft Machine is a British band that is one of the pioneers of the Canterbury Sound. It formed in 1966 in Canterbury, England, and initially played a central role in the music scene there.

From the beginning, Soft Machine focused on their own artistic concept. They experimented with lightshows and tape collages. They made their first demo recordings, which were not released until 1981 on the album At the Beginning. The recordings made at that time were musically still very much in the compact format of usual pop songs. For a short time, guitarist Andy Summers also played, but he soon left the band again. When, after an engagement in France, Daevid Allen was refused re-entry to Great Britain, he stayed in France and founded Gong, Soft Machine recorded their first LP as a trio, The Soft Machine (1968).

 

Soft Machine was one of the house bands at the legendary UFO Club in London in 1967 and 1968, where they often performed with Pink Floyd. After an extensive tour of the United States, during which they opened for Jimi Hendrix, Kevin Ayers left the band. A replacement was sought and found: Hugh Hopper, who had been the band's roadie. He was joined as saxophonist by his brother Brian, also a member of the Wilde Flowers. Hugh's expressive playing on the bass and his qualities as a composer shaped the band for a long time. In this line-up the second album was recorded in 1969: Volume Two. Characteristic compared to the previous album, typical jazz harmonies, odd meter and, through Hugh Hopper, a denser rhythm section now came to the fore. Around the same time, Soft Machine dropped the "The" in the band's name.

The group was briefly reinforced by jazz pianist Keith Tippett and three musicians from his band: Mark Charig (trumpet), Nick Evans (slide trombone) and Elton Dean (alto saxophone), who became the fourth permanent member. In this formation some concerts were performed and a part of the third album Third was recorded. This double album was highly praised by critics and also shows the group's development towards more complex rhythms and extended instrumental pieces. Along with Miles Davis' ******* Brew, it is now considered one of the most important early documents of the fusion of jazz and rock, and the band's best record. In 2007, Sony BMG released a remastered CD version with revised sound and with a live bonus CD of BBC recordings previously released in 1988 titled Live at the Proms 1970.
