HAPPY VETERANS DAY
NEVER FORGET 

As we approach the midway point of November, it seems that site traffic has hit a hard roadblock of sorts. I hope you’ll remember to stop by and check out the new music in the MMMM and vote to KEEP or DELETE.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

I found all of this week’s tracks on YouTube – the first CP YouTube weekly playlists.  Pls let me know what you think.


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.

mothersdaycrayonsignHappy Mothers’ Day.  Not too much to say today.  Enjoy the day with your mom if you can, and if you can’t then enjoy the warm memories we all share of our mom’s.

We’ve been enjoying the incredible 1982 Zephyr Heartbeat album the past month … and we’re not done with it yet.  Gonna have to be soon though, as new classics are coming in this month from Billy Ryan & Black Irish (2005 remaster of 1988 S/T album + demos) and then sometime around the end of the month we’ll have the newly remastered 1969 Zephyr, featuring Tommy BolinRainbow in the Bathtub as well as outtakes, demos and Zephyr Live @ Tulagi’s record to share.

Looking forward into June, we should have the self-released album from the wonderful Richie Furay, who turned 70 this week.  WOW!  Happy Birthday Richie.

Don ‘t forget … next Saturday – MAY 17 … to join me at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre for Head for the Hills with Grant Farm and Gipsy Moon.

News Notes and Spins May 1, 2014

The first “offical” (unofficially speaking) festival weekend of the month has come and gone … with what appeared to me to be record crowds at FoCoMX (Fort Collins Music Experiment) #6.  That at least from my vantage point at Equinox Brewing on Fri and Sat.  On Sunday, my wife and I purchased a vendor space at the Root 40 Music Festival.   Some very good friends also happened to be there.

ParkHouse_logo_squareAward winning producer/engineer John Macy (pedal steel – Casey James Prestwood & the Burning Angels) and I spent a LOT of time taking about the new “house” he’s in – called Park House, it occupies the space on E. Colfax and Madison (actual address is 1515 Madison) once adorned by the Normandy Restaurant.

John has opened up the NEW Macy Sound Studios in part of the building, and suggested that live recordings and live-streaming shows are in the works.  There are a few videos at the venue website … well worth checking out this “new” venue (guess it’s been open over a year now?) …  and some crazy good artists/bands playing the room.  John also told me he’s remixing the second release from The Congress – and that the new Richie Furay record will be self released sometime this summer.

In a sign to take our mortality, and our health, seriously, both Dan Treanor and Johnny O wound up in the hospital this past month.  Dan and Johnny both seem to be none-the-worse for the heart problems that put a smack-down on our friends, and the out pouring of support from musicians all over the region was genuine and heartfelt by everyone.

Also in news this week … it dawned on me that this is the 30th Anniversary of some auspicious happenings in our scene … 30 years ago Candy Givens from the band Zephyr died after drowning in her hot tub, from a deadly combination of alcohol and Quaalude.

zephyr bathtubZephyr c0-founder David Givens is releasing a number of recordings from the Zephyr catalog, including the 1982 “Heartbeat” record, and a box set that contains the “Rainbow In the Bathtub” record from ’69, a live show from Tulagi’s in Boulder, and a cd of outtakes and demos.  Amazon shows it will be available on May 27, and a limited numbered run is currently available for pre-order.  David also let me know he’s got other Zephyr and Legendary 4Nikators records he’d like to release this year as well.

Other 30th Anniversaries include Chris Daniels & the Kings, who will be releasing a new disc in time for summer that will feature legendary Denver (by way of Phoenix) soul master Freddi Gowdy.  Chris is also finishing up recording the new Magic Music release – from the band that started it all for Chris in the early 70s.  And finally – Airshow Mastering celebrates their 30th anniversary also.  Lots of love to all our friends celebrating this year.

Also appearing this week another great new cut from Fort Collins native Katie Herzig, the String Cheese Incident, and You Me & Apollo and more … Mrs Goat and I are off to FoCoMX today and tomorrow (we’ll be at Equinox Brewing) .. and at the Fillmore on Sunday hosting a vendor booth for the Rocky Mountain Music Network/The Colorado Sound.

We’ve got 43 station presets at The Colorado Sound Live365.  Would love to see 100.  Can we do it by month end?  Hmmmm … maybe … if you help <hint> 🙂

All I can say is, thank you Colorado for your incredible support.  It really matters.

The Colorado Sound S8 EP15 April 2014

Big news this week!  The String Cheese Incident is playing a free show on the “hill” in Boulder April 28th.  And our pal David Glasser at Airshow Mastering blasted this on his FB page … couldn’t be happier brother Dave.   Stop by and congratulate our friend when you get a chance …

grammy“I’m tickled and proud to report that I’ve been elected a Governor of the San Francisco Chapter of NARAS (The Grammy folks). San Francisco? Well, Colorado does not have a local chapter and our vibrant music scene is underserved by NARAS. But over the past year, the San Francisco chapter has reached out to Colorado and sponsored several events in Boulder and Denver. MusiCares, a service of NARAS has helped many Colorado flood victims since the September flood. This is just the beginning. I look forward to being a part of this activity. Colorado musicians – if you are not a NARAS member you should seriously consider joining, and affiliating with the SF Chapter. If you are already a member, I look forward to meeting you.

Zephyr, HeartbeatCOMING NEXT WEEK:   the on air debut of a lost Colorado classic from 1982,  Zephyr’s “Heartbeat” .. the last record recorded by Candy Givens, David Givens and Eddie Turner before Candy died in 84.  There are a couple of videos on YouTube, but the album itself has been sitting in Eddie Turner’s basement for 30 years.  I have never been able to locate a copy.  Until now.  Thanks to Kevin Clock (one of the engineers who recorded the original album)  at Colorado Sound Studios for preparing the old vinyl for airplay, since I’m all digital here.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Candy Given’s death from alcohol and ‘ludes.  Could be the reason for this msg left on my FB page:  “HAPPY RECORD STORE DAY ! Young Goat  Hey, did you see where David Givens is releasing a 3 CD expanded/deluxe release of Zephrs’ very first lp ? Yuppers, one disc of the original lp ( remixed/remastered ), the other two are previously unreleased material : a CD of studio outakes and demos and the third CD is of a concert they did at Tulagis’.”  WHOA!  

zephyr, box set 2014A quick look at David Givens page led me to Amazon … where you can preorder the boxset.  

Some of Colorado’s most legendary and enduring musicians who played in Zephyr are still around playing today … they include Otis Taylor, Jock Bartley (Firefall), and Eddie Turner … Eddie’s been showing up on the blues jam scene lately with Eric Boa and the Constrictors, as he rehabs from a hand injury he sustained several months ago.

So, as I’m writing this blogpost this morning … David Givens and I are PMing at FB … he remastered Heartbeat … and is sending it over for this week … oh man … seriously???  NICE! Thanks David …

Seriously, I feel like it’s Christmas … Happy 4/20 Colorado 🙂

I am also getting pretty excited for The Colorado Sound Presents Head for the Hills at the Mishawaka on May 17.    Tickets at www.themishawaka.com  Check out this performance from H4TH at the Mish in 2012 ….

Zephyr – Heartbeat – A Lost Classic

One of the greatest bands in Colorado music history was Zephyr.  By the time lead singer Candy Givens died in 1982, the band was a trio that featured Candy (vox, harmonica), David Givens (bass, guitars), and Eddie Turner (guitar, backup vocals) with a rotating cast of drummers and other sidemen that included Ken Lark, Gordon Ray Pryor Jr, and others.

Along the way from 68-82, the band also featured the likes of Tommy Bolin on guitar, Jock Bartley (Firefall, Gram Parsons) on guitar, Otis Taylor on bass, Eddie Turner on guitar, Bobby Berge on drums and other local heroes.

wpid-img_20140415_084004_674.jpgIn 1982, the band released their final record – “Heartbeat.”  In 1982, Candy died – and with her death, so too the album.  Until now.

 

eddie turner, chris k, heartbeat recordMonday – April 14, 2014 – Eddie Turner and me at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids with a sealed original copy of “Heartbeat.”  I’d been waiting for 20 years to get a copy.  As far as I know, I’ll be the first radio dj in CO to play cuts from this album since 1982 – if ever.

Interestingly, the band also recorded a couple of videos, as that was the early years of MTV – and Zephyr was prepared to move into the 80s with Heartbeat …

So, here’s what to expect.  Over the next couple of months “Heartbeat” will be the featured “New Album” of the month selection … for us history types, of course 😉

More to follow so stay tuned.
