Good Rats - Hempstead, NY 1981

Welcome the Good Rats in an event that started in 1979 and was held annually during the summer organized by New York radio station WLIR and titled Party In The Park.
I've seen different dates to this but recently spotted a flyer referring July 14 at Fireman's Memorial Park in Hempstead, NY.
I don't know about their studio albums but live they did quite a show having bass and drum solos and great guitar work provided by Bruce Kulick that joined the band in 1981.
'Regardless of the band’s lack of international fame, on Long Island there were surely defined as local heroes', a quote from ClassicRockHistory  where you can discover a list of 15 essential Good Rats songs, many of them played at this show.

Budgie - Electric Ballroom, Milwaukee 1978

Budgie at the Electric Ballroom in Milwaukee on 4 May, 1978 during their US and Canadian tour. The Welsh band was presenting the new album Impeckable released on February.
The band line-up was: Burke Shelley on bass and lead vocals, Steve Williams on drums, Myf Isaac on rhythm guitar and Tony Bourge on lead guitar that would leave the band in July 1977.
This is a clean recording lacking some high end though considering the age it's not bad at all.

Blue Oyster Cult - Tramps, NY 1997

A relatively small set for Blue Oyster Cult, I believe they were the opening act in this benefit event for the Make-A-Wish Foundation at Tramps, a New York City nightclub.
Other band on the bill was Krieger & Densmore with a longer set, a show that was shared here many years ago.
A show I don't see circulating these days, at least I didn't found any other share, it came maybe from dime many moons ago. The recording was made by Jerry Moore, a famous Grateful Dead taper deceased in 2009, and transferred by his friend Rob Berger.
Correction: B.O.C. was second on the bill after Waylon Krieger and Berry Oakley Jr.'s band (thanks smmaddog)

Walter 'Shakey' Horton LIVE in Chicago 1970


Walter Horton, better known as 
Big Walter (Horton) or Walter "Shakey" Horton
 (April 6, 1921 December 8, 1981) 
was an American blues harmonica player. A quiet, unassuming, shy man, he is remembered as one of the premier harmonica players in the history of blues.
 Willie Dixon once called Horton "the best harmonica player I ever heard." 
Robert Palmer named him as "one of the three great harmonica soloists of modern blues", 
with the two others being cited as Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson II.

Joe Louis Walker LIVE Waterfront Blues Festival Portland OR 2013-07-04

Waterfront Blues Festival 
Portland OR 
In many ways, Walker’s story is unusual. Born in San Francisco, he was part of the Bay area blues scene in his early teens and by the time he was 16 had soaked up the sounds of artists like T-Bone Walker, Amos Milburn and boogie-woogie pioneers Meade Lux Lewis and Pete Johnson. As he grew up, he found himself on stage with “tutors” like John Lee Hooker, Thelonius Monk, the Soul Stirrers, Steve Miller and Jimi Hendrix. And by the time he was 19 he had built a close friendship  they were roommates for many years with Mike Bloomfield, legendary late guitarist for the Paul Butterfield Band.

Bloomfield’s tragic early death persuaded the young Walker to change his life. He enrolled at San Francisco State University, earning music and English degrees and performing regularly with a gospel group, The Spiritual Corinthians. In 1985, he came back to the blues, fronting a new band he called The Bosstalkers, and made the first of five albums for the HighTone label, before signing to PolyGram’s Verve/Gitanes label, for whom he recorded another six albums.

The concerts from this festival are always great stuff!
