    Yep, it's amazing how you meet a lot of kindred souls on the forum. Music always brings people together. Metheny is truly a 'jazz legend' to be sure! His discography abounds with interpretive brilliance. His First Circle album with tunes like: 'End Of The Game' are melodic show-stoppers. I still have his original self-titled debut album (Phase Dance, April Joy, anyone?). For those unfamiliar with Metheny check-him out.

    Yeah I was selling Audio back then and got the shirt with the Turn Left cover on it,good times!
    Then I saw him live a few times as we had a Ticketron Outlet in the store and always got the first shot at tickets!
    Al Dimeola is another I think I will give some vinyl a whirl to tonight myself!

    Both excellent choices, EZ. Both of these are in my library of favs. One of Al's rarer albums was: 1985's Cielo e Terra an avant garde masterpiece in free-form jazz, almost bordering on New Age. Al's 'Race With The Devil On Spanish Highway' is a standout, classic too.

    One of the pinnacles of 'prog-rock': Close To The Edge from Yes.

    When you mention 'progressive-rock' most people immediately think: Pink Floyd. But King Crimson, The Moody Blues, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Yes were right-up there during this very creative-time in rock music. We must of have jelled on alot of the same stuff EZ. :cool:

    Plus John McLaughlin (assume I spelled it right!); and part of me wants to include some of the Frank Zappa library... "Penquins in Bondage" and "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" come to mind :)

    L'chaim!

    McLaughlin was right in the eclectic epicenter of 'prog-rock', and the fusion-movement. He's jammed with just about everybody, even Al Di Meola. Reminds me a lot of fellow guitarists Larry Carlton, and Lee Ritenour. Another act of that of vintage, would have to be Jethro Tull.

    Zappa, what more can you say? He had tunes like: "The Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue". A pioneer on so many fronts, he actually helped launch Alice Cooper.

    Well that brings back another memory. Had a school buddy in college who used to tell tales of who the band for parties at his high school were.... none other than Alice Cooper. For that matter the band that played at my high school about 3 years before me was Ted Nugent's old band....

    Not everything in the Greater Detroit area was only Motown tunes! :)

    L'chaim!

    I would have to agree. A lot of local talent was around back then: Terry Knight and the Pack, Iggy Pop, MC5, The Woolies, Grand Funk R.R., Bob Seger and The Last Heard, Mitch Ryder/The Detroit Wheels, The Rationals, SRC, and the Amboy Dukes as previously mentioned. Russ Gibb's Grande Ballroom also, brought-in acts, that would later; become world-famous (Janis Joplin, Cream, Led Zeppelin, The Grateful Dead, John Mayall, Canned Heat, and Taj Mahal).

    Probably not a 'crowd-pleaser', but I penciled-in a personal favorite, a neo-classical LP for relaxation. Who better than the cosmopolitan-stylings of Andre Gagnon?

    You got me thinking about Beck, EZ. So I went back in my archives for this early one. Truly a classic with many special guests, quite simply:
