Thanks for participating in our community. To ensure the best possible experience for all members, we have established some basic guidelines for participation.
By joining and using this forum, you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines set for these peer discussion groups. You also agree to keep forum discussions to topics best suited to the medium. Specifically, this is a place at which you can share experiences with other fans, ask questions of the band members and participate in ongoing conversations.
To preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue,
- The discussions on the forum are meant to stimulate conversation, not to create contention. Let others have their say, just as you may. No need to challenge, dismiss or attack others. In other words, treat others as you would like to be treated.
- Do not post commercial messages. This is not a place to solicit business. However, if you have a product or service you believe would benefit someone, you may contact that person directly.
- It goes without saying that all defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything you would not want the world to see or anyone to know came from you.
- Remember that Orleans and other forum participants have the right to reproduce postings to this forum.
- Send your message only to the most appropriate topic(s). Do not spam several topics with the same message.
- Include a signature tag on all messages.
- State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject.
- Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply. Delete any header information and put your response before the original posting.
- Only send a message to the entire forum when it contains information that can benefit everyone.
- Send messages such as “thanks for the information” or “me, too” to individuals – not to the entire forum.
- Use the Web interface to change your settings or to remove yourself from a topic. If you are changing e-mail addresses, you do not need to remove yourself from the forum and rejoin under your new e-mail address. Simply change your settings.
- Best to keep posts brief and to the point. Some stories need telling, but try not to overdo it. Warn other topic subscribers of excessively lengthy messages either in the subject line or at the beginning of the message body with a line that says “Long Message.”
John or Lance… I was wondering at what point in Orleans’ live show history did Jimi Hendrix’s 3rd Stone From The Sun riff get incorporated into TT? 🎸✌️
Mark ... always with the questions that make me go "hmm". I had to look this up. Well, it doesn't appear that way on the 75 Live Harvard Square album. That doesn't mean we hadn't improvised it by then but maybe hadn't made it a staple. IN fact, the riff makes a brief appearance at about 26 minutes in Compared to What, Part 1 @ the Jabberwocky in 1974 (YouTube). And I don't have any live capture of it between '75 the Bearsville show in 1990, where it definitely does figure prominently. So my best answer is sometime between 1975 and 1990. :-).
You know, on second thought, the Hendrix riff may have been a thing from very early on (73, 74) but just didn't happen at Harvard Square that one night. There's just no tellin'.
