    Isn't that also the name of your album or band??

    Yes. Reason being, when I started this show I didn't really know I was on to something. I just wanted to try ZOOM with some of my band mates and the first few were just them and a some local musician friends. For the second one I called it SOAL Night Live, just as joke really. As if people would tune in weekly to watch me blather about my tunes and stuff. Not likely... I quickly realized that it would be better if I had a "known" guest to chat with and looked up some FB friends like Jake Livgren and Mike Keneally to get started. In hindsight, SOAL is a better name for the show (than the band) since it is a story of someone's life. Or a band or a genre, etc. I did use a tune from my band's album as the theme song. Just to make things more confusing! It's been nice to cut to the chase and talk to people we discuss here often.

    For Episode #46 our guest is Ambrosia drummer Burleigh Drummond. We take a look at his early musical inspirations and dig into the history of one of the 70s greatest progressive meets pop groups. Their history and discography are discussed in detail. With info on the creation of each album and key tracks on each. Including Alan Parson's involvement on their first two. Their move away from prog rock into more R&B "Yacht Rock" territory is discussed too and how the Yacht term expanded their fan base into new generations. We look at choice deep cuts and hits too, like "Holdin' On To Yesterday", "Biggest Part of Me", "You're The Only Woman" and "How Much I Feel". Great stories of opening for and touring with mid 70s acts like Kansas, Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers, The Beach Boys and more are here. A look at Burleigh's brief time with Frank Zappa comes up too and much more!

    I am watching now. Like the recognition of Animal Logic with Stewart Copeland, Stanley Clarke and Debra Holland. One of the most incredible rhythm sections in rock.

    BTW why would I could I not find the FB link for the live show?

    Festivals came up in the discussion with Burleigh and I was surprised ROSfest didnít come up. Ambrosia played a somewhat proggy version of their repertoire there at the Keswick.

    Burleigh mentioned Apothecary off Life Beyond LA. They did a killer performance of the song at ROSfest with Joe Puerta really showing off.

    For Episode #47 we catch up with Guy Pratt, bassist for Pink Floyd since the mid 80s and all of David Gilmour's post-Floyd solo albums and tours. He also played on the amazing debut album from Toy Matinee. He's done stints with Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry too. We talk his current activities- a podcast with a who's who of rock and more, and his Lockdown Licks series on YouTube. Then, we talk about his early musical inspirations and loves, early gear and early bands. A look at his bass collection over the years is next- gear talk. Around 55 minutes in we turn to talk of Floyd and the tours and album he was part of. Also, we discuss his time playing with Jimmy Page and David Coverdale, and his current gig with Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, playing the great tunes from the pre-Dark Side Floyd catalog.

    Enjoyable listen. Great interview.

    For Episode #48 we set a course for adventure as we look at the history of Yacht Rock. A musical genre that is unique. Unlike any other, the yacht rock genre was coined/named decades after it's heyday, thanks to a show in the mid 2000s that was a tongue in cheek parody of it called....wait for it.....Yacht Rock! Out of that 12 part series (available on YouTube) a new reverence for the artists included in it grew and new generations became hip to the music. We take a look back at the well known artists like Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald, Hall and Oates, Ambrosia, Boz Scaggs first. Then, we dig into a list of groups and artists that had a handful of seminal yacht tunes. One hit wonders and two and three hit ones in some cases. Many songs share a similar "uptown" approach to harmony, but occasionally a simple nautical lyric or a groovy captain's get up gets in the yacht ballpark too. Our co-host is Greg Lee, bassist/vocalist for the Atlanta based Yacht Rock Revue. Their flawless attention to detail has garnered them worldwide acclaim as THE ultimate tribute to Yacht Rock in a live setting. They also have an album of original music that transcends the Yacht tag too and offers a fun, fresh compliment to their classic live catalog.

    For Episode #49 we chat with Camel bassist Colin Bass. He fills us in on his latest doings, musical and otherwise. Then, we take a look at his earliest musical influences/loves, early bands, basses and gear. Next, the bands he was in prior to Camel, including playing with Gong's Steve Hillage. His time with Camel and a look at the albums he was part of is next, and even a couple he wasn't. He shares memories of recording each and fave/standout tracks. We also discuss his work with world music catalysts 3 Mustaphas 3 and a look at Colin's major hit in Indonesia, Denpasar Moon. The future of Camel music is discussed and Colin reminds us that only Andy Latimer can really say if it will happen. Maybe someday we will get a chance to ask him.

    For some reason, I got the impression that Kit Watkins only toured with Camel. Colin Bass set me straight. Wow, how did I miss this studio effort with 2 songs he is credited with. One is a Happy the Man song (Eye of the Storm).

    For my 50th episode the current lineup drops by to discuss their recent studio album The Other Side, the new live album Live at The Wildey Theatre and their current doings. Their plans in lieu of the eventually rescheduled live stream/broadcast. They have a great 2+ hour live "best of" to share on the 5th instead which should tie you over. We look back at early vinyl purchases and talk about their current gear. Then we take a look at their discography, album by album with personal memories and anecdotes. Some of which even the guys in the band hadn't heard. I added minute markers for each album in the comments.

    I NEED A HAND (By Dec 4th) CAN YOU HELP? The big prog rock magazine out of the UK called PROG has a yearly Readers Poll and one of the categories you can vote for is "Prog's Unsung Hero". This is a category for people on the periphery, not artists per se. There are dozens of categories for artists too this year though. Could you drop them a line and vote for me? I think between my musical talk show (SOAL Night Live) and the work I have done for 20+ years at Progressive Ears I should qualify. Send an email to prog@futurenet.com With the subject line "Readers Poll 2020" and then, in the email say- "Please nominate Sean Tonar for Prog's Unsung Hero of the Year". I'd be grateful! Cutoff date is Dec 4th so please hurry and thanks a million!
