My Back Pages

Top ten lists of albums, songs, concerts and performers are not something I do, because there is so much music that I love, and love at different times for different reasons. 

But this in-concert collaboration by a bunch of artists, including Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and George Harrison would be atop any of those lists. 

The older I get, the more meaning this song takes on for me. 

Fooled Around And Fell In Love


I first saw Elvin Bishop with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, where he dueled with Mike Bloomfield on guitar.

Those duels were legendary. That band was legendary. And Elvin took some of that magic with him when he left the band in the early Seventies. As in this song, his best. 

And Mickey Thomas has the perfect voice to sing it.
