spindale cycle

On the Spindale Cycle this week we celebrate the birthday of George Harrison (2/25/1943)with a sampling of his successful 1970 album, All Things Must Pass. It features the hit single "My Sweet Lord", as well as songs like "Isn't It a Pity" that were turned down by Harrison's former band, the Beatles. Join Sander for some memories.

Largely ignored by the music industry and consumers when released, this 1971 album is now widely regarded as a masterpiece.  A series of meditations on God, love, and aging through the eyes of an "imperfect man" as he approaches death, it's early Willie for your Spindale Cycle, on his birthday!  




It's Disc 1 of this legendary 1974 live release for the Spindale Cycle, as we continue our celebration of the life of Levon Helm.  We'll air Part 2 on May 21st, as the birthdays of both Dylan and Helm are that week.  




An American original, Texas bluesman Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown is our feature Monday night, with one of the strongest albums of his career, "Alright Again!". Gatemouth would be 88 this Wednesday.  "Frosty", "Alligator Boogaloo", and more for The Spindale Cycle.  




Tune in Monday night for this 1974 album from the Southern-flavored blues-rock band Little Feat, as we remember Lowell George on his birthday this Friday.
