Each year we give thanks for those who are no longer with us but who provided endless hours of musical inspiration during their lifetimes – and none loom larger than Spirit, whose mighty guitarist Randy California passed away in a tragic drowning accident in 1997. So it was gratifying to learn that the ever-diligent archivists over at the Big O Zine have posted a free MP3 download of a choice Spirit concert originally broadcast over the radio in Germany on May 17, 1981. Many of the group’s classics are covered – “Nature’s Way,” “Animal Zoo,” etc. Not to mention a killer cover of Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.
Grab it at Big O. Tracklist is below.
