Tommy’s Coffee Break Calendar for June 2nd
6/02/1973 (47 years ago today) - Here he goes again: Paul McCartney has both Number One spots on the U.S. charts -- "My Love" starts a four week run as the #1 single, and "Red Rose Speedway" is the #1 album, his second chart-topping post-Beatles LP (the first one being 1970's "McCartney" which featured "Maybe I'm Amazed") -- This was a great year for Paul: "Live And Let Die" comes out in the summer, and the "Band On The Run" LP is released in December. Wicked!!!
6/02/1978 (42 years ago today) - Thin Lizzy release the ferocious-and-now-generally-accepted-as one of the best double live rock concert sets ever, "Live And Dangerous" -- Recorded in London, Toronto and Philadelphia during the tours for "Johnny The Fox" and "Bad Reputation", Phil Lynott and band were absolutely spot on and in lean-'n'-mean peak form -- Every side sizzles: as a live document, it's right up there with Little Feat's "Waiting For Columbus" and Bob Seger's "Live Bullet", so, yeah, we believe it qualifies as a must-have...
