ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Fairport Convention released a remastered version of a live album recorded back in 1970- “Live at the L.A. Troubadour” (January 23, 1977) on May 23, 2013. For a British folk-rock band, this is a delightfully hot album featuring Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, and mandolins), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolin, vocals), and Dave Mattacks (drums). Richard Thompson’s fretwork alone is well worth the price of admission as is the glorious setlist which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music. After all, Thompson deserves to be up there with the likes of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric “Slow-hand” Clapton, Alvin Lee, Robin Trower, Kim Simmonds, even Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, and Bob Welch. You will be so glad you looked into this album we guarantee it. Enjoy.

[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] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s.
[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.
[iv] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.
[v] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.
[vi] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011. Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.
[vii] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018. We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.
[viii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012. Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013. At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends. Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.
