TonyK How 'bout a thread on LONG JOHN BALDRY? (11) RE: How 'bout a thread on LONG JOHN BALDRY? 14 May 01

My first exposure to Long John Baldry was in the early 70's when I heard 'It Ain't Easy'. What a great album. I wish I could find the copy I used to have of it. Next I heard 'Everything Stops for Tea' and that too was excellent. I then got one that was pretty lame and I don't even remember the name. I may have used it for a frisbee also.

I saw him live in Asbury Park NJ in about 1972 and he was awesome. However, he was opening for Uriah Heep and their fans didn't appreciate him. Half the crowd was screaming for an encore while the other was screaming "get off the stage!"

I heard a rumor that he was in a mental hospital for a while but I couldn't confirm it. I wondered again when I saw his album 'Baldry's Out', thinking that meant he had been and now was out or that it was a play on words to 'Balls out', an expression for really letting loose. I dunno. You can't judge a book by looking at the cover.
