Live Tracks Airs 60s - Early 70s Long Form Jams Including Jefferson Airplane, Savoy Brown, and Barry "The Fish" Melton

As part of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, the concert commitee at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall has organized a special "Thursday Live!" concert for Sept. 7th from 7-10pm with an all-star line-up of local musicians collaborating on the iconic songs of that special era.  Tributes will include the music of Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Moby Grape, It's A Beautiful Day, Youngbloods, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Byrds, Neil Young, and Country Joe and The Fish, to name a few. In preparation for this upcoming community concert, Jim has pulled out the vinyl for some long jam tracks from the likes of Jefferson Airplane, Savoy Brown, and a special local live performance from Barry Melton and friends recorded at a 2011 KDRT benefit concert at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall. For additional sixties-era "flavor", Jim includes some anti-war ditties from satirist and songwriter Tom Lehrer.
