I've been watching this a lot as of late and it's awesome. This is also the LP "You Can't Argue With A Sick Mind". Walsh was so much better than most people remember and this is also the tour behind "So What". What a band. Can you imagine any of the youngsters today playing & writing like this?? Rocks golden day's of the 1970's when creativity was at a peak. Notice how back then everybody had the same basic equipment? Strats, Pauls, Tele's, Twins, Marshalls, MXR was new in 75 but everybody had an individual sound. It wasn't about the pickups or the effects or the fret size it was about the MUSIC! I'll get off my soap box now and just say I'm really glad I grew up in the 70's and went to Winterland almost every weekend in SF and saw the real deal bands and stars at there peak!
Very cool, this takes me way back. Lot of talent up there, and if the audio is 'true' (and I think it is) they sounded great.
Gutted for the hundredth time at 11:47. This would have been a year at the most after he lost his Emma.
I hear ya.
"So What" is my favorite Joe Walsh album.
Thanks for posting.
I saw him on that tour at the Spectrum in Philly. He was warming up Johnnie Winter, who had that great rock band with Floyd Radford at the time. Joe lit it up. Place was freaking crazy, it was a dance concert so no seats on the rink level, and I was mushed up in the front with these women that were super hot. It was cool. Ahhh, Philly.
Great kick ass Joe Walsh moment. Yeah I still play Sick Mind. I love Meadows.
It's freaking me out how young he looks.
Incredible stuff, and how about???????????
He's had one hell of a career! One of the true unsung heroes of R&R!!
Willie can lay it down deep in the pocket!
It always surprises me when watching him play just how light and delicate his right hand his when playing because his tone is anything but. Then you take into account how relaxed and in the pocket his phrasing is and it kinda makes sense.
Fooking brilliant player. Love me some Joe Walsh!
I watch it at least once a month...that and he Olympia Tavern one with the James Gang
I also just found a show from 93 on youtube too...love me some Joe!
Great stuff, right there. Thanks for posting.
Ive played the hell out of the first barnstorm album the past year or so after discovering it.
That's an all star band. Roky played percussion with Hendrix as a youngster. Great show. Is Don Kirshner still around? I used to love that show, but at that time I was playing full time myself, on the road for 3 years and missed a lot of this great stuff.
Joe and Don Felder always were a great pairing. All the musicians here are great. I feel bad for the kids today. They missed out on Golden Era of Rock in the 70's.
I saw a taped show a while back from a couple years ago and before playing Rocky Mountain Way Joe said, "This is the song everybody know me for. If I had known that I would have written a better song".
That was good for the soul!
The flute part Joe Vitale played in Turn the Stone reminded me of this one from Barnstorm.
Geez thanks for posting this!! Total pleasure to watch! Major throwback time!! Felder and him were just so good together,really feed of each other so well. Great stuff!
What amp/s is JW using here? Sounds Fender tweed?
Joe always has been one of my top 5. Saw him in this era and after Eagles. Sometimes I wish he hadn't joined the Eagles. Kind of like Ron Wood. Wish he never joined the Stones. these guys didn't need to kind of integrate into these monolith bands. They were both so creative, Joe tho....man.
