     I was thinking about this the other day on drive back home.  In no particular order, my faves are

               Quarterflash
               Firefall
               Heart
               Journey
               Foreigner
               Fleetwood Mac
               Berlin
               Pat Benatar
               Eddie Money
               Laura Branigan
               Olivia Newton-John

and a few more that I've forgotten right now (must refer back to my lp/cd collection).

                        Add your own, too,

     How can I forget Sade?!  Especially now that her new album is out, Soldier of Love.

     O.K., I've just ordered Sade's Soldier of Love CD.  I'm eager to hear it.
     Meanwhile, because I am on the mailing list, Marv Ross of Quarterflash/Trail Band tells that there is a special, intimite concert this Sunday in Portland.  Darn!  I'm too far away.  However, there will be a Trail Band concert in June and a Quarterflash concert in July.  I hope to make one or both.

     Oh, boy!  Heart is having a concert on September 19 at the Tachi Palace Indian Gaming Casino in my area.  I must get a ticket!

              Missed Pat Benatar when I was at CommVEx,

     Ooo, Al Stewart has a few upcoming concerts in California.  The one nearest to me is really expensive, and the other one is far away... 4 hours away.

Heart is having a concert on September 19...
     The Heart concert was amazing!  Hundreds and hundreds of people were there in the outdoor amphitheatre.  Heart played new songs from their new CD, "Red Velvet Car", and old favorite songs, like "Dreamboat Annie", "Barracuda", and "Crazy on You".  Nancy Wilson's voice belted out the lyrics with power.  Ann Wilson showed off her guitar prowess and her trademark "guitar hop/shuffle".  The night was cool and clear, and the crowd ranged in age from young to old.  I was so pleased with the evening, I bought the new Heart CD for $15 from their souvenir table.
     FWIW, after the concert I went to the local SaveMart supermarket for a sandwich.  What was playing over the store's loudspeakers?  Music from Heart!  Today while cleaning out some papers, I dug out a Heart concert ticket; I had last seen them in Las Vegas back in 2004.

             Truly,

     Next Sunday is the SCCAN meeting.  The night before that, Al Stewart is giving a concert in San Juan Capistrano (an hour south of the SCCAN meeting place).  So, I will go to that concert and listen to the melodies of the great Al Stewart.

A friend of mine just lent me his copy of "Hardest Hits, volume 1."  Very, very cool and quite rare.

http://www.discogs.com/Various-Hardest-Hits-Volume-One/release/190124

There is currently one for sale for the low, low price of only $100.

     When I was in the Pacific Northwest, I went to the July 28 concert of Quarterflash in Vancouver, Washiington (across the river from Portland, Oregon).  The clear warble of Rindy Ross' voice is always an amazing listening experience.  As is usual at their concerts, there were a couple of new Marv Ross' songs.  At the rate they are going, they should bring out another new CD of music.

          Second time to see them this year,

P.S. While in no-sales-tax Oregon, I also had to buy Stevie Nicks' latest CD, "In Your Dreams", from the Fred Meyer department store.

     Whoa!  The Bangles just released a new CD, "Sweetheart of the Sun".  I'll have to buy it.

     Darn, last Saturday they had their 30th anniversary concert in Salem, Oregon.  I had to send them my apologies for not being able to attend.

          However, the Warp 11 concert that night was great,

     Hurrah!  Another 30th anniversary Quarterflash concert is coming to the Aladdin Theatre in Portland, Oregon on Dec. 31.

          I'll be there!
