The Colorado Sound S7 EP39 OCT 2013

chris at ob hmls sunday june 16 2013Monday / Oct 28, 2013: Good morning. Not a lot of time this morning, and obviously not yesterday either considering this didn’t get done and posted til now. Full day of music yesterday in support of CAN’D AID FOUNDATION at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont. Felonius Smith, Grant Farm bluegrass, and Rocktin’ Grove killed it noon to five …and then we had our Sunday evening show upstairs in the loft with David Williams gypsy jazz featuring David and Enion Tiller. All in all a really magnificent day of music.

So, what do Glenn Frey, Joe Cocker, Joe Walsh, and Rick Derringer have to do with Colorado music history? Three are current or past residents in the state – and two were produced by a famous rock producer who had a label in Denver (Tumbleweed) in the 60s, who recorded the first two records to come out of Caribou Ranch, and who subsequently went on to become the Eagles producer in the mid-70s.

Video Pick of the Week:  Danny Shafer and his family are among those who lost their home and possessions in Lyons this year.  There have been numerous benefits in support of Danny, the Tillers, and the many others who have lost because of the floods.  This video is from one of those benefits… grab the Kleenex kids.
