Here's the thing tho, I suspect Wheels of Fire must have some influence right, being Ginger's big live document from the 60s?
Well the thing is, Ginger didn't really have a big live document from the 60's.
He does have huge live documents that were RECORDED in the 60's though (released in the early 70's, to answer your question).
I mean Wheels of Fire was THE live testament of the late 60s to the best live band of the era.
Most people would argue for The Dead as the best live band of that era. NOT ME THOUGH.
And yes I agree, there are only four songs there. And only three of them were spectacular. And only one of them is highly revered by many to this very day, (no doubt due to it's helpful radio exposure), and I think you know which song I mean. ("Well I'm goin' down to Rosedale...").
And if I'm not mistaken wouldn't that live Toad be the first major, big-deal live unaccompanied drum solo in rock? (Or am I wrong?)
Probably not. Every time people like you and I make assumptions like that, it always turns out that somebody did it first.
Remember Sampson who used to post on here? He was very good for shattering a lot of the 'myths' held by gullable classic rock heads (one of which was myself).
