  2. One of my top ten favorites and I still have the original album. Alone.. had a great guitar solo that you didn’t dare talk through (here it comes, wait for it…), it made the song special and the album was everybody’s favorite. BTW, DM is touring with his current group he’s doing a Traffic set as well as solo stuff. He’ll be in Clearwater in February; I won’t miss it. I saw him several times in the 70’s and at one point he had a kick ass band. DM was a major influence on my playing and while it may sound sacrilegious to some people, there were reviewers who said that his version of All Along The Watchtower was better than Jimi’s. While I don’t buy into that opinion, I think that DM’s version was second to none. Alone… was ubiquitous on FM radio, owned by every music lover and a perfect album for the times. You couldn’t be in a room when this album was playing and not be in a good mood.

  3. Well, thanks for a future category: “Guitar Solos That You Didn’t Dare Talk Through!” .
    But think how familiar that was back then and how non-existent it is now. Other than a concert or club, do people get together and listen to music for something other than an ambient backdrop to a party? There must be some small cults still out there; hold-outs of civil-ization.

    • I love your idea about songs/solos that demanded undivided attention (“why did you talk? Now I have to start the song all over again”). I guess some of us could get a bit OCD at times, LOL!

      Maybe there are some people today who respect music enough to love it (I hope so). However, I doubt that it means the same to them as it did to us. I believe that what we’re discussing here is a the salient point in explaining and understanding the 60’s.

      Music validated everything we stood for. Music was the passage way into the collective consciousness, the nucleus that we danced around, the soul and beating heart of the counterculture; it connected us to the artist and to each other. Without music and the love we felt towards it, we would have been like a mass of unconnected wires. Keep the faith brother. Peace.
