This Alabama band of all teens sadly only recorded one self entitled album in 1970 (released in 71′). Consisting of Myke Jackson, Mike Neel, Stan Lee, Tommy Gilstrap & Allan Dalrymple were unable to find a label in their neck of the woods who recorded their kind of music. A small label (Nashboro/Nasco) who up to that point had only recorded country/bluegrass & gospel gave them a shot. A couple of months after the recording their 17-year old lead singer Myke Jackson was busted with an ounce of pot and got sent off to reform school for 6 months, thus the band broke apart.

Good Friday ~ “Jesus Is Alright With Me” ~ Doobie Brothers
Favorite Doobie Brothers song. God infused with one of the best blues guitar riff.
Saturday Slice of Pie ~ “For Your Love” ~ Humble Pie
Steve Marriott, Greg Ridley, Peter Frampton and Jerry Shirley.
This unplugged session took place two years (1969) before the best Live concert of all time “Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore (1971) was ever done. It showed how masterful Steve Marriott really was without the amps and how all the members just mixed together perfectly. From Small Faces to Pie and beyond. The man was raw, pure soul to the core.
The Yardbirds made the song famous but Humble Pie’s style made it a classic.
Friday at The Fillmore ~ “Turn On Your Love Light” ~ Grateful Dead, Greg & Duane Allman, Barry Oakley, Peter Greene & more…..
On Monday I started with Detroit’s Bob Seger’s rendition.
Bobby Bland got first strike with this song, but never did he do it like the Grateful Dead who got second strike in 1966. And certainly not what turned out to be the jam of a historical proportion with members of The Allman Brothers Band & Fleetwood Mack joining them on stage.
