Just found your site and your comments.
Thank you for posing these videos. "Wheels of Fire" was my first album ever purchased. Expensive for this young teenager at the time. Still have the very same one (somewhat deteriorated).
I am sorry now (kicking myself) that I did not follow Baker and Bruce into their phase with Gary Moore.
Thank you, again.

You're welcome. That was a good choice for first album. It's not too late to hear the BBM album, you know.

I'm contacting a well-connected friend this week. He can acquire any music. I will ask him about the BBM album.
Funny story:
I attended a concert at the recently-built (1973) "Rich Stadium" outside Buffalo, New York in 1974. The bill included; Jesse Colin Young, Santana, and CSNY.
About 5 years ago this friend of mine mailed me a double cd recording of that exact concert, which was not officially recorded. Nearly 40 years afterwards. I understand that he acquired it on the internet. Thank you again for posting the videos.

In principle I don't approve of this, but I'll tell you anyway: the entire BBM album can be found on YouTube. Seems like everything can.

Agreed. The internet has seemingly impacted an artist's livelihood in a negative way.
The story about my friend accessing music on the internet perhaps needs a bit of clarifying. He has shared with me that there are sources which do involve a transaction. He indicated to me long ago that he does pay for music. All of it? I am not certain.
As for me? I miss those days when I would travel to a brick and mortar location to peruse a plethora of music choices. Marveling at album art. Reading liner notes. Sometimes my mission was laser focused. Other times I would find something unexpectedly and simply take a "flyer" on it. That is how I came across Ry Cooder's solo album (digital recording) in 1980. At a store called, "Peaches", in Fort Lauderdale, FL. That is but one example. Far too many to list here.

Seems like everything can.

Including this:

Height of irony.

Ha. I was going to mention that song.

:-)

I just want to remind everyone that this is Week 45, which means that week 52 is very close and they have commitments.

AMDG

Yes, I was planning to post something about that this weekend.
