ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Pink Floyd-released a live album from back in the early Seventies, “Live at Pompeii 1972,” on September 02, 2014. Prior to this, the only live album by the post-Syd Barrett Floyd was “Ummagumma” with its one disc of a live show. This is an impressive set, featuring tunes previously found on “Ummagumma” as well as others that weren’t. This is pre-“Dark Side of the Moon” and it offers a glimpse into an exciting time when psychedelic, aka acid rock, still existed and another into the greatest British group of the art. We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your collection. You will indeed enjoy it.

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day. We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”
[ii] When we promoted the music of the Steve Miller Band, we screwed up by not promoting the music of Boz Scaggs at the same time. We look forward to doing it soon.
[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014. We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.
[iv] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014. We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.
[v] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members’ solo projects.

Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[vii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule. Stay tuned for further developments.
[viii] James Comey is a worthless POS and one of the main coup plotters against President Donald J. Trump. We hope he will soon be breaking rocks at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary for his role in the attempted coup.
[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011. Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.
