      They could trade a Hendrix song for "Every Night a New Surprise.". I know , how incorrect !I mean, we know Jimi was a big supporter of the group , and that's great , but , we've heard these songs a zillion times. If you're going to make people pay $65 , give 'em some more surprises. Even Zakary Thaks (Sorry for the earlier spelling) nailed "You're Gonna Miss Me " and "Levitation", tho' it seems everyone disagreed.

      The more I take it in , admitedly second hand , I wish they'd lose the Hendrix covers and try a little harder not to sound like ZZ Top , though it's exciting this is happening at all.

      As far as other Texas Garage bands that tried again , Kenny and The Kasuals are TIGHT LIKE THAT, but they are'nt taking too much stock in their many great originals. Same with Larry and The Blue Notes. I saw them in '86 OR '87 . They PLAYED great , but , no originals , virtually nuthin' that could be called Garage Rock.  Zakary THAX WERE REET BY ME , THO' NONE OF MY FRIENDS AGRED.

      Yes, those were covers as well of the bands you mentioned.  Just thought it was odd that whoever made the list credited some covers but not others.  BTW, Wild Thing was more akin to Hendrix' version in style.

      Was "Reverberation" the 13th Floor Elevators' tune? "Whatcha Gonna Do" the Small Faces'? "Before You Accuse Me" Bo Diddley's? Just curious... ;)

      Funny how the list maker didn't identify Wild Thing as a Trogg's cover.

      We went and it was a great time. Opening band was Headless Horsemen who also sounded great for not having played together in a number of years.  Was it worth the $65 tickets?  We'd say YES!  We did say NO, however, to the overpriced t-shirts and posters.

      Kopper , I just now saw one clip on you tube , which sounded great , of "Need Me". There's several clips up , now. "Reverberation" could only be The Elevators' classic , as Gibbons has always credited them as a huge influnce on The Moving Sidewalks' sound . Plus , ZZ Top did it on "Where The Pyramid Meets The Eye" , one of the only tracks on that , well intentioned , comp that I can stomach......AND , Billy has sat in with Roky, every chance he could , in recent years , and he looked , to me , like he was having too much fun NOT to attempt a Moving Sidewalks' reunion. They probably did "Before You Accuse Me" , the Bo Diddley classic , because it was a staple in The Elevators' and Roky's solo live set , and because Billy is rumored to like him some Blues. But , "What you Gonna Do" (sic) is a M.S. original.

      $65! Wow. BB Kings is probably always that expensive in NYC. Glad to hear it!
