Acorn Watchers Wonder What Happened to Crop

Attention: R. J. Squirrel (and Bullwinkle)

Acorn Watchers Wonder What Happened to Crop -

What I'm listening to, a prequel:

Paul Winter Solstice Concert 2008, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York City, NY

My musician friend Don LaCorte took me to this just after the fire in the Gift Shop back then. It was very good. I grew up listening on occasion to Virgil Fox who recorded on the cathedral's "built into" massive organ, a recording lent by a friend Gerard Verbier, he an organist and his older brother, with a Hammond B-3 and Leslie cabinet, who played in a band that covered many of the early songs of the time from "Procol Harum" or the "Young Rascals". The Leslie cabinet (Ed. - "Leslie speaker" - Wikipedia) of the Rascals I actually think I've heard when Felix went solo, in the Stony Brook University gymnasium where we heard many bands, i.e. the Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker and Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Alvin Lee and Ten Years After, MC5, Dave Mason, Leon Russell, the Allman Brothers, Who, Mountain, J. Geils, Grand Funk Railroad, Mahavishnu, Yes, Jean-Luc Ponty, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, and others. Those days, student activities fees collected were also used to bring some of the new popular music to the university and many in the community attended. The Jefferson Airplane gave a free outdoor concert...had to work at Zum Zum.
