People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
Interesting video......probably late 1980s?.....she's got it going on.....

This Bear owned the first album from this progressive jazz/rock band. If did release a few more albums (early 1970s) but eventually most of their talented musicians moved on to other bands. This tune is from that first album.
Thought about posting the original John Hooker version of "Boom Boom". But I wore the hell out of this CCS album in the 1970s and really dig this take.
Also Spracht Zarathustra (2001 Space Odyssey theme) Eumir Deodato's jazz version. You may recall hearing part of this tune as it was featured in the Peter Sellers movie 'Being There'. The song starts after the opening chord about 42 seconds in. Enjoy.
Check out this blast from my past, probably from about 1975. Great tune.
ofos reminded me that ZZ top were badasses. So in honor of that fact, I thought I'd feature my favorite ZZ song (and it's not one of their biggest hits, just straight honest blues) -

Super tune from one of the most unique rock and roll bands ever.
Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
From Kelly's Heroes (1970)
Are you sure you're not hurt ?
No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
Broke parts take a little longer, though.
From Electric Horseman (1979)
Classic chain saw rock (with a splash of prog).....a great Uriah Heep tune.....Gypsy.
BUN will remember this one.
