Listening For The Music -- Introduction

For many of us from the Baby Boomer Generation, music was an important part of life.  Fortunately, some of the music has lived on so we can even occasionally hear it on the radio -- if we know the right stations.  Records (this was pre-CD) were crucial but so was the concert experience.  I've decided to do a series of categorized posts recollecting many of the concerts I remember going to.  They were an important part of shaping my musical aesthetic (several thousand LPs also contributed).  Sometimes the extra-musical element was more important than the sounds -- when important, I'll talk about that, too.

As Frank Zappa said, "Music is the best."  And live music is often the best of the music.
