This week’s Turn It Up Tuesday was inspired by the UK’s Planet Rock on-line radio station. I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s the best thing going in my opinion. Their music selection is second to none.
I was listening the other day and heard a song (and a band) I had never heard of before. The band was Taste, and the song was, Born on the wrong side of time. I was so impressed that I looked them up online. I was surprised to learn that Taste was the first group that the late great Rory Gallagher was in before he went solo.
Here’s a studio version of the song. I love the 60’s vibe to the music. Following this video are some clips from Taste’s performance at the Aisle of Wright Festival in 1970. Yes, that’s the same festival that (according to Wiki) featured performances by The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, The Doors, Ten Years After, EL&P, Joni Mitchell, The Moody Blues, Melanie, Donovan, Free, Chicago, Richie Havens, John Sebastian, Leonard Cohen, Jethro Tull, Taste and Tiny Tim. Now that’s a show!
Speaking of shows, you guys will enjoy the 2nd video…
