    Got onto Amazon.com and bought some replacements for albums I have, and some new stuff. Today's purchase list, ELP - Brain Salad Surgery, Kraftwerk - Minimum/Maximum, Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells, Liquid Tension Experiment, and Porcupine Tree - In Absentia. Now I get to wait anxiously for their arrival.

    Cd's are great. LP Album art is great. Too bad they can't be combined.

    Like the brain salad surgury LP.:(

    ELP
    Sammy Hagar/Van Halen
    Pat Travers Band

    Many years ago I saw him as he opened for somebody, or was at a "Day on the Green" but those days are a bit hazy..... His live stuff is outstanding. I just got the hankering for some Delerium and ordered Karma from Amazon.com just now too. It's an addiction....

    I caught Travers back '93 or '94 or so at a small club ( The Zoo, Winnipeg, Man. ) And it was unreal, they just about blew the roof off the joint. I'm sure I'd have a blast digging through your collection.

    I saw him back in the 70's. I've replaced a lot of my albums with CD's but I've kept all the original albums too. I see you are also a child of the late fifties. Ah, the memories of sixties and seventies rock....

    Yes, born in '57 with a sister 10 years older so I know early 60's stuff I was really a little young for. The '70's had good stuff but like any decade you had to sift thru the crap. Gems like Paul Anka, " your having my baby " or Debbie Gibson " you light up my life " Ahhh, sweet treasures.BTW, you mention Brain salad surgery, I can still recite " Benny the bouncer " from memory. Saw ELP on the " works " tour '77 at the Alladin in L.V., FRONT ROW CENTER. That was a show.:bow:

    To this day I can recite pretty much all of that album. Classic lyrics. Here in the SF bay area, we had "Day on the Green" and it featured multiple bands playing. Later, most of the bands that went big wanted to headline their own shows. The Oakland Arena and the Cow Palace become home away from home for a while there. I also remember seeing Styx and Thin Lizzy at the Salt Palace in Utah too and watching the SLC police kick some serious ass.

    Ok, shipment came in. After enjoying ELP and Tubular Bells after a long absence, I threw on Liquid Tension Experiment. Ladies and Gentlemen, if you like prog rock, know anything about Dream Theater or Joe Satriani, you have to get this CD. Pretty much all instrumental and just outstanding. I should've know it would be good when I saw a disclaimer on the track listings. On the bottom it says about the last track "Caution: "Three Minute Warning" is not for the musically faint-hearted, impatient, or critics of extreme self-indulgence. If you fall into any of the above categories, please hit the stop button on your CD player after track #8. Now I'm listening to Porcupine Tree - In Absentia. Pretty good so far.

    Saw him in San Jose at the SJSU event center with a whole lineup of other good axemen. I think Gary Hoey was there along with Steve Vai and Eric Johnson.

    As much as I like seeing it live, A good set of headphones, a little JD over, and a comfy recliner in the dark also work well....
