Bachman and Cummings wrote some tasty stuff together.  Kind of like a Canadian 'Lennon and McCartney'.

Thanks for the Canadian memories.

I highly recommend Randy's show.  If you love the history of rock 'n roll and contemporary popular music.

The Guess Who has a fantastic catalog of stuff that fits right in with the openminded RP crowd. I'd suggest stuff from the Road Food album as a start. 

 

I think that is great advice !

This is one of those songs that define an era.  To hear it is to know, more or less instantly, when it was first played. 

"Dat'n-doo-dow-dow
Dat'n-doo-dow
Dat'n-doo-dow-dow
Dat'n-doo-dow"

Yes indeed....definitely defines an era.  {#Cowboy}

Like the Beatles' "Day in the Life" this is two songs - one by Burt and one by Randy - that happened to be in the same key so they smashed them together. New Mother Nature is Burt's part, IIRC.

Respectfully, I disagree. True, some songs seem timeless while others are very much a product of their time. While I see your point I think it's good to preserve some of both. It's one of the things I like about Radio Paradise that it both respects musical heritage and presents key bits of it. I've learned a lot here.

That was my thinking when I watched Townsend and Daltrey at the Super Bowl halftime four years ago. They tried but you got the feeling that Daltrey had forgotten to sing and Townsend just didn't have much energy anymore. I had to explain to a friend in his late 20s that in its prime, the band was one of the most exciting live acts around. 

Some bands can still do it. I hear the Stones are like that.

Really good bridges in any song can send it over the moon for me.  This bridge is definitely one of the best ones.  (Another one that gets me is the bridge in the middle of Indigo Girls 'Ghost'.)

A version played at a winery near me sans Cummings and Bachman.  Another original member has rights to the name by accident.

Would be up for seeing a reunion with BC and RB, meanwhile I am planning on picking up Running Back Thru Canada.
