SPELUNKING IN CANADA


 THE TROGGS

Live at the 94th St Music Hall, Victoria, BC, Canada; March 16, 1991. Fairly good audience recording.

It’s not often that live Troggs gets shared on the net so fans of the group might want this latter-day lineup as a keepsake.

The Troggs had their day in the sun in the ’60s   but thanks to Wet Wet Wet’s version of Love Is All Around and the film, Four Weddings And A Funeral, the group became hot again in 1994.

The band’s original drummer, Ronnie Bond, died on November 13, 1992. Dave Wright, another founding member, died on October 10, 2008. In January 2012, after over 40 years of touring, vocalist Reg Presley retired due to lung cancer. Presley died on February 4, 2013 at age 71.

OH JACKIE



THE OZARK MOUNTAIN DAREDEVILS

Live at the Roxy, Los Angeles, CA; December 11, 1975. Excellent FM broadcast.

Mention “country rock” and most people will mention the Eagles. Those into country rock will likely remember The Ozark Mountain Daredevils for their hits, Jackie Blue and If You Wanna Get To Heaven. Jackie Blue, with its smooth vocals a-la Curtis Mayfield is not your typical country rock song but then fans of the group will probably tell you that the Daredevils, from Springfield, Missouri, are not your typical country rock band. Take Better Days, for instance. The song may have a funky beat but that didn’t stop the band from taking an extended jazzy excursion with the flute.

 “The Daredevils manage to mix the traditional sounds from the hills and hollows of the Ozarks with R&B, ’70s rock, and you name it… The Daredevils always managed to jump back and forth from the pure rural “hillbilly” sound to any number of directions.”
