I need to take a music appreciation class because I don’t "get" Sun Ra, I mean he is/was an interesting character. His costumes always reminded me of the "School Play" sort, thrown together, sometimes just a gold piece of fabric over his shoulders with some wire with purple feathers glued to it. The music is kind of different…………………..

I didn’t want to let this topic slip away with out sharing this magic moment in music………….

Several years ago I was camping with several families. We were way up in the mountains in North Carolina,
Everyone had gone to bed and I think I had to wake up because of baby or something…………………
I started mulling around the camp site and I found my good friend Kevin W. awake, we opened a bottle of wine and put another log on the fire. I had my little wind up radio………………….you wind it for 60 seconds and you get about 30 minutes of music……..well, I wasn’t sure what we would find, but after searching we found this[glow=red,2,300] live Led Zeppelin[/glow] it was not any live Led Zeppelin I had ever heard before. We listened to two songs and they seemed really "Off" then the DJ came on and said something about this was a "bootleg" recording from 1974 or something of the sort……..but no venue……….then he went right back into the music…………………….it was CRAZY, with each song Jimmy Page got further and further away from the rest of the band like in measures of music, like he was 2 to 3 measures off. Then he would go into these solos and it was like, My God, I think they have lost him, at certain points the band would try to bring him back without much luck………………..Kev and I were on the ground laughing. Robert Plant was over the top bad with his girly oooohs and ahhhhs,the drums sounded like someone was just KNOCKING THE CRAP OUT OF EVERY BEAT……………………..I have never heard anything like it again………………….I wonder if anyone else has heard really bad Led Zeppelin before. Now, with youtube, you see many film recordings, but almost all were done with multiple cameras so we are getting what the band paid for, so most of the stuff I have been able to see on youtube, ROCKS, This was so magically bad, but funny, and I will never know from where it came, even the station was a mystery. Perhaps everyone was drunk or stoned or both……………………………………………………..
