…My friend Carl and I went out to the Berne Grange Hall, up on The Heldeberg, one evening to see them. I remember my brother, in his white lamé suit, holding up a Jimmy Hendrix album and saying, “If any of you can tell me who this is, you win the album.” (Silence.) “OK, now we’re going to play a song by this guy.” (Silence.) They play the song. No one knows. Adrenalin gets to keep the Hendrix album for one more week. At least….

    If it was from “Rainbow Bridge” then I can understand. Although it was the best album he ever did (it was released posthumously) not many folk ever heard it.

    Were the other prizes albums from Janice Joplin, Lead Zeppelin, and the Beetles?

    @ Pierce

    The Beetles? Is it an American group?

    Mankel: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I always wanted to hear them cover tunes by Bob Dillon.
