Don McLean has had a long career, 50 years. He is most known for his big hit "American Pie". I looked and found some other songs and picked one, from his Tapestry album, called "Castles In the Air": youtu.be/TTqi7iEZEWA

And here he is live at BBC with "American Pie": youtu.be/RciM7P9K3FA

Thin Lizzy's biggest hit was "The Boys Are Back in Town", but they also had a more minor hit from the same album. I will play both.

The other one from the same album is "Jailbreak" youtu.be/iC6Cgb8nHwk

Because Ozzy Osbourne's solo material is after 1979, we can portray the music from Black Sabbath. Here are three great songs:

In conjunction with the celebration of Ozzy's birthday, here is a description of his first band Black Sabbath.

Black Sabbath were an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, drummer Bill Ward, and singer Ozzy Osbourne. Black Sabbath are often cited as pioneers of heavy metal music.[1] The band helped define the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970), and Master of Reality (1971). The band had multiple line-up changes, with Iommi being the only constant member throughout its history.

Since I posted "Hold Your Head Up" and "God Gave Rock and Roll To You" last time in June, how about another Argent song covered by another band. This time it is "Liar" which was covered by Three Dog Night Night in 1971.

I will do two songs.

The first one is from their 1971 Album "Flowers of Evil". The song is "Dream Sequence: Guitar Solo", which also has the lyrics to the Chuck Berry song "Roll Over Beethoven". This is significantly shorter than the 25 minute version. youtu.be/Ohy4JoyThis

And, of course, you can't not have "Mississippi Queen". Here he is playing with Peter Frampton. youtu.be/VMhPgo2fofg

Alex Lifeson is great on this song. It is "Working Man". It features the first drummer for RUSH, John Rutsy. youtu.be/SZYr_J9H54I

For Michael Jackson, I thought I would do one with the Jackson Five and one during his solo career. The first one, with the Jackson 5 is "I'll Be There" youtu.be/VzLzUqdGBNo . From his solo work, it is "Rock With You" youtu.be/5X-Mrc2l1d0

Foghat had three hits. The biggest and the one the radios seem to play over and over is "Slow Ride". The other two are lesser hits, but still great songs, "Food For the City" and "I Just Want to Make Love to You". Here are all three:

Slow Ride: youtu.be/aCr2APDza_I

I Just Want to Make Love to You: youtu.be/G-h1IOb5kF0

Fool For the City: youtu.be/Cbdptuf9-yU

They are long videos. First one is almost 10 minutes. The second one is 5-1/2 and the third one is over 6. They are all live in concert. Enjoy.

I will feature both Tom Petty's and Fats Domino's music. Fats' big hits were in the 50's, but he is such a blues and musical icon, it would be a lack of respect.

The song I heard was "War Pigs", which many thought, because of the timing of it on the 1970 album Paranoid, was about the Vietnam War. The song was originally called "Walpurgis". Here is a description on what the bassist says the song is about.

The original title of "War Pigs" was "Walpurgis", dealing with the witches' sabbath.[1][2] "Walpurgis is sort of like Christmas for Satanists. And to me, war was the big Satan", said bassist and lyricist Geezer Butler. "It wasn’t about politics or government or anything. It was [about] evil. So I was saying 'generals gathered in the masses / just like witches at black masses' to make an analogy. But when we brought it to the record company, they thought 'Walpurgis' sounded too Satanic. And that's when we turned it into 'War Pigs'. But we didn't change the lyrics, because they were already finished."[3] Prior to its official release, the band often altered the lyrics significantly when performing it live.[4] An example of this can be found on Ozzy Osbourne's compilation The Ozzman Cometh, which features an early version recorded by Black Sabbath for BBC Radio 1 on April 26, 1970.[5] While Butler has said that "War Pigs" is "totally against the Vietnam War, about how these rich politicians and rich people start all the wars for their benefit and get all the poor people to die for them",[6] vocalist Osbourne has stated that the group "knew nothing about Vietnam. It's just an anti-war song."[7]

Here they are with "War Pigs" live in Paris in 1970. youtu.be/K3b6SGoN6dA

"Whiter Shade of Pale" may be their biggest hit, but this is the 70's team page, so I had to go with another one. "Conquistador" was also off that first 1967 album, but became a hit in the U.S. in 1972, only hitting No. 16. Here they are with "Conquistador".

Bob Burns was only part of the band for the first two albums. Looking them over, I chose a slower paced song that is largely overlooked by most radio stations. Here is "The Ballad of Curtis Loew":

This song, which is their international hit, was a B-side of a 45 record. The A-side was "Hello Melinda Goodbye". It was written by their lead vocalist and guitarist, Les Emmerson. It was covered and was a hit for Tesla. Tesla's live version is the version you most often hear on the radio. Of course, it is "Signs". This video, though amateurish, is really well done.

Anyone who has ever seen Joe Cocker live knows that I mean when I say that he is not having a medical issue when he performs. He just gets so into his singing and the song that it looks like he has some kind of chronic condition or an urgent medical issue.

Here he is with a cover of the Lennon/McCartney song (on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album), "With a Little Help From My Friends". The video is about 7-1/2 minutes.

"Rise" is a song written by Andy Armer and Randy Badazz Alpert, and first recorded by jazz trumpeter Herb Alpert. The instrumental track was included on Alpert's solo album "Rise" and released as a single in 1979. It reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in October of that year and remained in the top position for two weeks. Herb Alpert thus became the first (and only) artist to reach the top of the Hot 100.

Here is the great instrumental song, "Rise":

Another enjoyable funkalicious sound of two songs from this group.

The first is, for the most part, an instrumental. It is "Pick Up The Pieces." Live at the Montreux:

The second is equally good. It is "Cut The Cake". On Soul Train.
