Pasadena 2017 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Levitt Pavilion Pasadena, Memorial Park, Pasadena, CA; August 13, 2017. Very good audience recording.

Former Paul Revere and the Raiders singer Mark Lindsay brings his classic hits to the Levitt Pavilion Sunday night. As the lead singer and saxophonist of Paul Revere and the Raiders, Lindsay rose to fame in the 1960s with a string of hits that included “Kicks,” which Rolling Stone eventually named one of the 500 greatest songs of all time. More than 50 years later, Lindsay’s still bringing musical memories back to classic rock fans by teaming up with Micky Dolenz of the Monkees for “The 50 Summers of Love Tour,” in addition to performing his own solo shows. Lindsay will be leading his own band Sunday night at the Levitt Pavilion Pasadena, blending a mix of the Raiders’ hits including “Hungry,” “Good Thing,” and “Him or Me - What’s It Gonna Be?” with tunes from his solo career, including the hits  “Arizona” and “Silver Bird.”

Thanks to  ijwthstd for sharing the show at Dime.

ijwthstd noted:

All year long I just assumed I would be going to see Deep Purple & Alice Cooper at the Greek Theatre. Except there were none of the usual bargains associated with these package tours. And the show sold out in advance. And the day of the show ticket drop in the front section ran around $180. Not one to sit at home and cry about missing a show I just went to this one instead. Super cheesy but it was still fun.

  2. One of the first friends I made on Facebook. And Paul Revere and the Raiders AND the Monkees belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Thanks much for sharing this.

  3. Thanks for this. I’ve seen him a bunch of times the last several years on the Happy Together Tour. But the sets on those shows are nowhere near as long as this. He is a physical freak of nature. He’s in his early 70’s and the man is in shape! And during “Kicks” he does these very high leg kicks, unbelievable. Incredibly thin, and he has pencils for legs. The man will live to be 100.

  4. Old men cant rock,didnt know this geezer was still alive,sounds like shit.

  5. Uh, no, he doesn’t “sound like shit”, his voice is in much better shape than his contemporaries.

  6. Thanks for sharing this. I grew up watching Pau Revere and The Raiders, seeing them on Where The Action Is and other TV shows. OK, the costume were a bit corny but they were a legitimate rock band for the era. I remember the bass player nicknamed “Fang” would flip his bass around at the end of a song with “FANG” proudly written on the back. I am amazed at how well preserved Mark Lindsay is —- good genes, good living, who knows?

  7. It is my first time hearing this show but obviously, there are some people that have no clue what good music is. I am sure I know who this guy likes. And they suck. Mark Lindsay is a true rocker and one of the best lead singers I have ever heard.
