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.

J.S. Bach Well Tempered Klavier

The collected works of Scott Joplin

Ray Charles Genius plus Soul

Charlie Parker Omnibook

Stevie Wonder Songs in the Key of Life

Weather Report Mr. Gone

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.

Every now and then you find a gem like this. (Warning, Three Dog Night fans only.)

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.

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.

Ah, yeah, there's always a catch. ;) Dang it!

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.

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.

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)

And THIS is why I like Keyboard Corner. There is always someone around that knows more than me and has interesting facts to share.

Heres the entire SOUNDSTAGE show that clip came from, if anyone wants it:

And heres 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. Greenspoons pseudo-Garth Hudson organ showcase should be around 30:43. Mix is rough, its live;

Enjoy...
