SATURDAY SONGS - RIDERS ON THE STORM

A great haunting, ominous song from the brilliant, yet troubled,

YOU BELONG TO THE CITY - GLENN FREY - 1985


FRIDAY NIGHT MUSIC -

This song, I know I am weird, is my favorite Elton John song. I saw him perform it in the Omni as his opening song in 1975 when he was 28 and I saw him perform it again in the Macon Coliseum when he was 66.

LAYLA - DEREK AND THE DOMINOS - 1970

Listen to the piano solo at 3:10, played by keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, who was my neighbor while I was in college at Mercer in the late 1970s.  




Derek and the Dominos were a blues rock band formed in the spring of 1970 by guitarist and singer Eric Clapton, keyboardist and singer Bobby Whitlock, bassist Carl Radle and drummer Jim Gordon. Duane Allman played guitar on this track.

Here is Bobby's album cover in my aunt's back yard.
