Worth sharing, so thanks. YouTube is a gift, to be sure.

We truly live in a golden-age for musicians.

We have pianos we can carry under one arm, virtual synthesizers with thousands of modulation options, and YouTube, which brings us instructional material, pretty much any song you want to know, and performances by just about everyone who ever played an instrument since the invention of film.

Whenever the Soul Band wants to learn a new song, we all discuss which specific YouTube video to learn from. We just had this discussion at last night's rehearsal.

I love YouTube because whenever I need to do a handyman job, like fix a toilet, I can find an instructional video for dummies like me that walk me through the entire process.... And yeah, it's pretty good for music stuff too. laugh

Don't sell yourself short. Getting 18-19 year olds to listen to your music is a big accomplishment.

What about that one period where you could sell records, tour the world, and become a multimillionaire from a couple tunes you and your buddies wrote in your parents' garage/basement?

Ok, that can maaaybe still happen but I couldn't help myself haha. Python

Anyway, yeah, YouTube is the most amazing thing. By far the largest musical library on Earth.

What they never told you back then was that the songs had to be good. The only thing that prevented me from achieving international stardom.

The biggest thing I love about YouTube is that it's almost a sort of celestial juke box with everything recorded. You can read a book about 1950's rhythm & blues and actually look up the records. That didn't used to be.

For a long time I was upset that the promised Don Kirshner's Rock Concert DVD's were never released. Now I just watch them on Youtube.

Thanks for sharing this. That's from season 2 of the original "Soundstage" series, which is still in production here at WTTW in Chicago. I'll have to ask around to find out if there's anyone still here who worked on that show. Doubtful! Other guests in season 2 were Bob Dylan and Tom Waits.

Also, I'd love to know the story about the white B3 and grand piano.

That is real good on so many counts. Live and tight. Such talent.

The opening vocal improvisation had a boatload of Roland Space Echo or similar device on it. Then it cut off at 2:39 - the soundman was part of the band.

Listen to the Hammond at 3:48 mark. What a freakin band they were. Sal Azzarelli, I think knew Jimmy well and did some work on his B-3. We talked about it in 2015 at lunch one day when we somehow got on the topic of 3 Dog Night.

Looks like they are using a second keyboardists, on the left in black. Someone is playing a string machine and a Mellotron.

The second Keyboard player is Skip Konte. He had a dual manual Chamberlin that can be heard on TDN's version of Leo Sayer's "The Show Must Go On" from 1974. He was previously with Blues Image. Konte co-wrote their lone 1970 hit "Ride Captain Ride" and the Chamberlin can also be heard on that song. The line "Seventy-three men sailed her" was inspired by the Fender Rhodes Seventy-Three that Mike Pinera used while writing the song and is also heard on the recording.

I have recently revisited TDN and find their work to be very strong. Their guitar sound was a little strange, and they put a lot of work into their instrumental as well as their vocal arrangements. Their voices were as good as any then to now. I use this video to show my millenial friends how I dressed in the 70's (the singers, not the keyboardist)

Here’s the entire SOUNDSTAGE show that clip came from, if anyone wants it:

EDIT: follow the link that comes up to see this on Youtube, won’t play here.



And here’s a show I like even better, from when they were lean and hungry and Joe Schermie and Floyd Sneed were still in the rhythm section. Greenspoon’s pseudo-Garth Hudson organ showcase should be around 30:43. Mix is rough, it’s live;



Enjoy...
