  6. Complete version of "Could It Be Magic"

    In late 1973, Bell Records release the debut album by Barry Manilow. From that album came a song which ran 7:18 called "Could It Be Magic" & has a bass guitar near the end of the song. On the Arista album "Barry Manilow I" the song was cut to 6:49 BUT has a choir (no bass guitar) near the end of the song. Same thing on 1992 "The Complete Collection And Then Some" box set. Here is the original 1973 version with the bass guitar & which has NOT been released on CD or on itunes.

  13. Ides talking "Vehicle" on Antenna TV

    I was about to go to Three Oaks, Michigan (between New Buffalo & Battle Creek, MI) to see The Ides Of March on Saturday, May 4 but I have decided not to go. It will take me 3 hours from my home. Hopefully that The Ides will come to Flint, Michigan (known as the "Vehicle City") to perform in 2020!!! I have seen The Ides Of March for the first time in Dundee, Michigan on June 20, 2003 & in New Buffalo, Michigan in August of 2006!! Both shows were FREE!! There was a meet & greet afterwards too!!

    From June 20, 1975, here is Herb Alpert with the T.J.B. "Desert Dance" (NOT on any Herb Alpert album or 45 single during the "Coney Island" sessions). By the way, remember The Raspberries when they were on the NBC Saturday morning show "GO" back in September of 1973?? They used different colors (NOT the fault of your TV receiver). Here is the same thing on "The Midnight Special":
  16. Dateline NBC: Timeline

    Back around the late 90's, Jane Pauley did a segment called "Dateline Timeline". Now the Dateline Timeline, all of the following events happened the third week of January, do you know what year it was? Forgot the headlines (but I am not sure if Jane Pauley said this though, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl) & the top movie at the box office BUT Pauley said on TV, "Rhoda" starring Valerie Harper was big & Eric Carmen had a song on the charts "All by myself, don't wanna be all by myself anymore" All right what year was it 1975, 1976 or 1977, the answer when Dateline continues after these messages from your local station. So what year was it (blank), "Rhoda" hits big & "All By Myself" hits the charts, it all happened the third week of January 1976!! From our studios in New York, here again is Stone Phillips. But that is all that I can think of back then. Matt
  17. Barbershop song

    King Crimson "Barbershop" (from "Three Of A Perfect Pair" CD bonus tracks reissue):
  18. Now on itunes

    I have decided to go to the itunes website & download my music!! Since the first week of April, my brother Mike fixed the website & now I will be paying $ 9.99 for the complete CD. All you need to do is go to a store which has gift cards & will cost $ 15, $ 50 or $ 100 & there is a secret code (just have to write down your password) & on the right corner shows how much you have & there you have it. The artwork however when you copy from the printer only has the front cover of the album or CD & on the back side are song titles & total time of the song. It does NOT have extra pictures, lyrics, musicians who are on the album & liner notes on itunes whatsoever. I just bought on itunes King Crimson's "Discipline" (1981) "Beat" (1982) & "Three Of A Perfect Pair" (1984) (all remastered) BUT it does contain the complete booklets on all 3 CD's!! The next Sting album "My Songs" (new recuts of The Police & solo material) (out in late May) also contains a booklet which you can download!!
  19. Dateline NBC: Timeline

    I don't watch Dateline NBC anymore since Stone Phillips left the first week of July of 2007.

  22. The Hawks (itunes) don't buy

  23. The Hawks (itunes) don't buy

    I just downloaded on itunes The Hawks debut (1981 which has the songs "It's All Right, It's O.K." which went to # 32 in May of 1981 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts & the song "Right Away" which went to # 63 on Billboard Hot 100 Charts in May of 1981) on a blank CD for $ 7.99 Problem is, it is NOT remastered because it is on a scratched record on a cassette tape!!! Their second & final album "30 Seconds Over Otho" (from the Summer of 1982) is NOT available on itunes yet. Both albums did NOT charted on Billboard Top 200 Album Charts. I listened to it on headphones so do NOT buy that on itunes but even though 4 people enjoyed that recorded CD do NOT buy it!!! Wait until Real Gone Music or Beat Goes On (BGO from England) gets the remasters on a future date someday!!! Matt
