Eagles - Seven Bridges Road

A buddy of mine challenged me to connect Mike Nesmith with the Eagles... A challenge beyond me but with a few clues from him (Garry) I found the tune "Seven Bridges Road". It is the title of a song written by Steve Young recorded in 1969 for his Rock Salt & Nails album.

Ian Matthews recorded "Seven Bridges Road" on his Valley Hi album in 1973 (produced by, and featuring, former Monkee Michael Nesmith on guitar).

The song was recorded live by the Eagles for their Eagles Live album in 1980, and still receives significant airplay on classic rock stations, thus the connection.

Here (for Garry) are appropriately, "Seven" versions of "Seven Bridges Road"... Much more detailed info at "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Bridges_Road"

As always, these are lo-fi recordings, included for discusion purposes... for the hi-fi versions, I believe they are all available for sale... The B

New Beatles Release

It's fun to visit places you've seen on TV and in photos...
My profile pic is of me at the Mansion used on the TV
series "Dark Shadows", which is not in Maine but in Newport RI.

The Beatles new 9-9-9 release reminded me of a pic of me
from the 90's while on vacation... we had a great time...
this photo should be familiar to at least a few of you...
A two minute walk from a "Tube" stop...

I'm the one in the middle of the road...

I was looking at some old comic books and stumbled across this. It's a page from "More Fun Comics #16" from 1937, a year before Superman was first published. Dr. Occult was written and drawn by the creators of Superman "Siegel and Shuster".
Notice the similarities...

for more info see: Siegel and Shuster

Might anyone know why they signed the page "Legar-Reuths" ?

1970 Atlantic 45 singles

Here are some Atlantic 45 RPM singles for 1970 tunes...
quite a collection of colors...

notice the different spellings of the Led Zeppelin tune...
the two red labels are one sided promos, the other
side being a blank white label with no song track...
the yellow label (usually only seen on '50's Atlantic's), is a
German pressing... I wonder if there are any other label colors?
my buddy Tim would probably know... say what Tim?.....

Tim came thru with four more labels...
