Detroit Funk Indeed

Eastown Theatre, Detroit, as depicted by the mesmerizing DetroitFunk

Check out the interior even after ages of decay. How do modern concert venues even show their faces, looking like they do?

Here are some of the regulars that played this historic hall according to this website.

Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels - Take a Ride (lala)
Lee Michaels - s/t (lala) - um, wow. If you like Hammond Organ, and I like Hammond Organ, this record might just make the Leslie lying long disused in your heart start spinning again. If he stretches out like this on album, I cannot fathom where he went in concert.
Savage Grace - One Night in America (lala) If Iggy and Tom Jones averaged out and fronted a biker bar band. In the best possible way, mind you. Also there is some Drive-By Truckers song that shares chromosomes with the solo in "Hard Time" but I can't place it.

Try and wrap your brain around this lineup:

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band,
Ted Nugent & The Amboy Dukes,
Ry Cooder
(Alice Cooper?)

Thanks aworks, the fine people of Detroit, ravers, and the internet in general
