steppenwolf

Monster

Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean

1973 rock-jazz fusion

zappa

by 1973 (40 years ago, believe it or not), rock musicians were starting to catch up to jazz musicians in terms of musical skill. this week i feature rock musicians who flashed some jazz-like chops and/or improvisational skills, albeit, nearly all guitar-based.

this week's artists and tracks from 1973 include steely dan's "bodhisattva," pink floyd's epic "dark side of the moon," wishbone ash's les paul electric "blowin' free (live)," the amboy dukes's instrumental masterpiece "eruption," a 9 minute, live high-energy medly by focus, frank zappa's "montana," and the who's relatively unknown "the stone." 

the length of the tracks ranges from 3 minutes to 11 minutes... to quote the opening track: look out!
