Below the link there is something reffered to as "pass",type that in exactly as it is written i.e case sensitive and punctuation and that may be the key to your dilema.
PS some don't have passwords.

Copy & paste is quicker than typing and less prone to errors.

Having been fortunate enough to have seen this band twice in the space of six months during the summer of '77 and the spring of '78, I can state categorically, that: at that time, there was no guitarist on the planaet that had anything on REO's Gary Richrath. I first was introduced to him (with no prior knowledge of) at Anaheim Stadium in August of '77 as REO was third on the bill behind co-headliners Ted Nugent and Lynyrd Skynyrd (also featuring Foriegnor touring behind their first album) and the caught the band the following May at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium topping a bill featuring the Babys and Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. At each stop, Gary was the equal, or better of all of the fellow axe-weilders on display. It's a shame that the band later gained their fame as a ballad playing vehicle for frontman Kevin Cronin and that Cronin had the temerity of firing the immemsely talented Richrath from his own band (imagine Mick firing Keith for being a lush!!!???) As it is, I thank you, Titus, for providing us with this great thread and me for the pleasure of being able to relive those halcyon days and for the riches I plan top mine from your site in the future. Thank you for all that you do. You are truly a godsend.

Peace, Rob

Hi Rob, thank you for taking the time to write such an interesting comment. I confess never have thought of Gary Richrath being a guitar-hero but I never saw them live and their records aren't very guitar-driven.
Oh btw this thread was made by me, AtticRock, not Titus.

Sorry about the misidentification,
AtticRock. As I said: thanks for all of he cool stuff! BTW, I've been to well over 600 concerts and seen so many of the great guitar gods (Zappa, Dickie Betts, Warren Haynes, Gary Moore, Blackmore, Robin Trower, Buddy Guy, Clapton, Jimmy Page, Walter Trout, Pete Townshend...) what I said about Gray Richrath is no joke. Thanks again.

Password doesn't work. Thanks for the effort>

password works perfectly and have to agree with what the one anon poster said. richrath was/is one of the most under rated guitarits ever. although their stuff was mostly simple tunes, when he had his chance to shine, he simply smoked.

don't think i could compare him to trower or page, but that's a different style altogether.

i just grabbed the 2 oldest posts here. the chicago show has a major skip in the second song close to the beginning. :( haven't listened to the whole thing yet.

if you notice, reo hasn't done squat that's been played any where since richrath left. cronin got way to fat of a head thinking they would survive writing ballads all the time!

I don't see a password or pass. I do not see well but I've looked over it again and again.

Can this be re-upped? Thanks for your time and attention.

It can but you'll have to wait about a week or so.
