I’m sure that you have noticed that I have not been posting at my normal rate over the past week or so.

- A great “Album of the Week” post from an obscure early 70’s group
- Several new posts of “New Music That Doesn’t Suck”

If we know how they feel about us and still vote for them……we will get exactly what we deserve!
Let’s let Bob Dylan have the last word….

Our feature attraction today is Rare Earth’s 1970 performance of I Know I’m Losing You.
Rare Earth was on the Motown label and I Know I’m Losing you was originally recorded by another Motown group, The Temptations. Here is an amazing late 60’s Temptations performance of the song on the Smothers Brothers show.
Finishing off the triple play may be the best performance of the three and given the preceding performances that is saying a lot. The Faces were at the height of their power during this 1971 performance on BBC. What a band, what a song, who could ask for more……
