The Patch Of Blue & Tommy Bolin - Correctionville, Iowa

The Patch Of Blue & Tommy Bolin - Correctionville, IA - 1966 (bootleg)

The band formed in 1965 by the remaining members of Denny & the Triumphs after George Larvick, Jr. replaced bassist Denny Foote. The band were managed by George Larvick, Sr., father of band members Brad and George, Jr. George, Sr. did the bookings and drove the bands to gigs in a van with “Patch of Blue” painted on the side.

George, Sr. was impressed with the 13-year-old Tommy’s playing. Whenever he went to pick Tommy up at the Bolin’s home to take him to rehearsal or a show he almost always found him by his phonograph with a guitar, working on learning a new tune. The whole band was very good in spite of their young ages it was a tightly run ship and show, which also help contribute to Tommy’s rapid development in terms of both playing and ease on stage.

They band played a mix of rock & roll, R&B and pop hits such as “In the Midnight Hour,” “Heat Wave” and “Got My Mojo Working.” While George, Sr. enjoyed Tommy’s playing, he has related that he would have to tell Tommy to turn down sometimes. He didn’t feel that Tommy was trying to drown everybody out, but that Tommy felt that what he was playing was good and he wanted the details to be heard.

NB: Esse disco é parte integrante do box set "Tommy Bollin Fever" com 15 cds que registram Tommy em diversos momentos (shows, jams, outakes, etc) e que foi realizado por seu fan club no ano de 1995. Custa a bagatela de 500 dólares. A qualidade do som não é lá grandes coisas, mas vale a pena pelo registro histórico em mais de 1h15 de som.

Stephan Missri and Barry Melton - Jamasutra: Revolution Down The Road

Stephan Missri and Barry Melton - Jamasutra: Revolution Down The Road - 2010

by Jaime O'Neill from newsreview
Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, back when Country Joe and the Fish sang from the back of flatbed trucks to legions of anti-war demonstrators in Berkeley and in San Francisco, providing a heady mix of smart-ass rebellion tinged with apocalyptic fears and acid-addled visions of “Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine.” Other than Country Joe himself, Barry Melton was the big fish in that band, a group more idealistic and studiously dedicated to political action than some others who would ride what was then known as “the counterculture” to fame and fortune. Melton kept the faith, working as a public defender while continuing to explore music, performing all over the world with his own band, and never losing his commitment to social justice and working for a better world. Here, on an album he made with guitarist Stephan Missri, Melton provides a sampling of what international psychedelia sounds like in the 21st century, performed by a guy who helped launch the genre, ably assisted here by Missri, an Algerian-born Parisian who brings his own magic to this party. Melton, Missri and friends create a musical plea to save the planet, with lyrics sung in French and English, backed by lots of kaleidoscopically rippling guitar riffs. Music like this no longer holds the power to “blow your mind,” but it might ramp up your consciousness just a tad.
