Revisiting a little something called "LEON LIVE" a mind-blowing 3-vinyl record set of LEON RUSSELL performing at the Long Beach Arena in 1972, there's SO many tunes on this thing, I don't think anyone can approach it's statistical density, ya dig me?

A horrific one indeed, lots of great material,
Leon at his peak, strangely enough it's an
official live album but the sound is sub-par,
 sounds like some mics were placed on 
stage and that's it. Dig his Jumping Jack Flash
and Youngblood medley which takes up 
all of side 5. 
Amazon link to song and album. Usually if a song is
longer than 10 minutes they don't let you purchase it
individually but this nice 16 minute track is only 1.29
The Sheer Horror!!

here's some Dessert for later, try some of "BONZO'S CAKE" ;-) Compilation I put together earlier this year, A Labor Of Love utilizing Many Different Sources of the Famous May 31, 1973 Zeppelin show, Dig THIS!

oh yeah! Zep in 73' at their home, the LA Forum
What's not to like?! Link.

around this next corner, look it's "CHARLEY VARRICK" 1971 Bank Robbery Flick w/ Walter Matthau still holds it's charm all these years later, Just a great movie all around and So Horrific Hump Day Night Before Turkey Day, THE HORROR!!

Always been a big fan of this one since Ed and
I used to go see it as kids in the theaters in 
Hollywood. I'm "thankful" for growing up
where I did with such great art everywhere,
A terrific actor by name of Andy Robinson gives
a kill performance as the doomed accomplice.

OFFICIAL TRAILER also with option to watch entire film.
Otherwise, pretty easy to find.
Trust me, if you've never seen this, check it out!
Anything Sheree North is in is okay in my book!
The Horror!!

THE CLASH ask "Who's Next" in this nice audience boot from 1982 opening up for The Who in BUFFALO NY so if they knew Who was next why were they asking Who's Next, ya dig my philosophy? The Horror!!

it's a goody, A- audience capture, link
The Horror!!

around this next corner, HARVEY KEITEL doesn't quite know what to do with his "FINGERS" in this 1978 Indie Gem from James Toback, who wrote The Gambler from 4 years prior, this time he Writes AND Directs, THE HORROR!!

A young Harvey Keitel plays Jimmy Fingers, part-
time aspiring concert pianist and part-time collector
for the mob, and since this ain't no editorial type
blog, dig this link to a real review by Peter at
Every 70's Movie, a highly recommended blog!
Using my Palm Springs Rating System, I give 
this one 3 1/2 healthy palm trees


1978 flick but easy to find...
The Horror!!
