Rock & Roll Saturday Night (live, Analog, 1971)

Description
If you have been following our other postings you know that we wrote and recorded these songs between 1968 and 1973. All recordings are Analog, Tape, and most, including this are live cuts. No edits, no multitrack, just a couple mics and a feed off the FOH mixer.

We wrote this song because our agent told us "you need more 'Rock and Roll" tunes. Fun songs. Elvis, Chuck Berry... you know "ROCK & ROLL".

We already did a few 50's and early 60's cover tunes, so we decided to write our own "OLDIE". We wrote this...

"Rock and Roll Saturday Night"

Simple song. Simple lyrics. We played some gigs with hundreds of people up there singing and clapping with us.

Hope you enjoy. This is a short cut- normally we all take off on solos and do a long "sing along with us" segment. In this version, Bobby, the true musical prodigy of the band who could play any guitar, brass, reed or woodwind instrument in any key without ever having played the instrument did a little vocal solo towards the end. Wish we had his sax solo on this cut- he played like he had grown up with Buddy Holly.

So, lean back, get ready to clap your hands and sign along as we "Rock & Roll Saturday Night".

Ten Years After...
Yes, we had a lot of fun... as our drummer reminded me, we typically practiced 4 hours every day, then out on the road for 3, back home, a little sleep, and repeat. Truly a labor of love. As always Feter, thanks for the listen and the very kind comments.

Keep Rocking
That's the name of the game. We had a lot of fun writing this song and often used is as an "Ice Breaker" if we had a "shy" audience. If they really got into it we would lengthen it, toss in some solos, and even come down from the stage and get out with the audience and get them clapping and singing into a mic (or occasionally some of them would come up on stage and sing and dance with us).

ROCK AND ROLL WILL SAVE YOUR SOUL!!!
