Does anyone remember how long DSOTM was on Billboard's Top 200 Albums?  Include time spent on the Top Pop Catalog charts and the number becomes a bit mind-boggling.


The last I've been able to verify is that it was on for 736 consecutive weeks  and then it's racked up another 1123 non-consecutive weeks since then for a grand total of 1859 weeks or 35 years and 9 months and counting.

 

Note: Billboard changed the rules back in 1988 than stated albums over 10 years old cannot be listed officially on the Billboard top 200 charts, but they have still kept track of these albums.

 

BTW - The closest competitor to the ongoing 1859 weeks, Johnny Mathis' Greatest Hits at 490 weeks total.

Did you know that Floyd were such fans of Monty Python, they funded the Holy Grail movie with some of the profits from DSOTM?

Apparently there was some Pink Floyd played in Fit the First of the original HHGG too, but I never heard it.  It was in the radio version, but when BBC sold the show on cassette tapes they didn't have the rights for the music, so it was edited out.


Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.

LOL....that reminds me of the old TV show WKRP in Cincinnati, during the first season they had a Thankgiving episode where they dropped live turkeys from a helicopter as a promotion...anyways, there was a scene where Dogs from PF's Animals album was playing.....a very funny scene in the show but when the DVD of that season came out, they didn't have the rights to the songs, so all the music was overdubbed. Problem was with that scene, the music played such a big part, they had to cut the entire scene out.

That is unbelievably cool!

 

 

 

Oh, and yeah, re: HHGG and WKRP, I know how that goes... I heard that the reason it took forever for the Daria seasons to come out on DVD because they didn't have rights to all of the music that had originally aired with the episodes. They're a bit different without the orig music... ~shrugs~

Someone mentioned Rush, I remember them playing a free concert in StL for a KSHE Kite contest one summer, mid-seventies I think. They have long been a favorite in StL. My first album purchase was Chicago's second album I believe, followed closely by Blue Cheer (best cover of Summertime Blues eva'). I was always a big fan of early Grand Funk as well. I still have a decent collection of vinyl and a nice turntable to crank up when the kids are out of the house. Rock music's best vehicle is vinyl in my opinion. Saw REO play at a drive-in theatre in early seventies along with BTO as opening act. In my army years, mid-seventies, I also became a big fan of R&B music. Earth, Wind and Fire, Isley Brothers, etc. with some George Clinton thrown in for variety. Saw Pink Floyd DSOTM concert in StL in summer of '73. If not the best concert I ever saw, certainly the most memorable and historic. Any one remember Slade? Saw them in small theatre venues a couple times in early seventies. A straight up PARTY band and a blast of a show. Loudest concert I ever saw was  ZZ Top, in Austin in '75 or '76. They opened for Peter Frampton.

 

Sorry for being long winded.

Cool.

 

I saw Rush play in St. Louis, but, not until like 2004 or somewhere around there. It was packed and the tickets were hugely expensive. :-/ Sorry to say, I didn't have that great of a time, but, my idiot ex-boyfriend, for whom I had bought the tickets because Rush was supposedly his favorite to see live, made us leave early, so we missed all of the songs at the end of the set that I actually knew.

 

I got some free tickets to that same venue to see Tom Petty back when I was a teenager, though. Man, that was a good concert. On the lawn, surrounded by some suspiciously laid-back people... hehehe. Enough room to move and breath. Great time.

I think the best concert I've ever seen was on my birthday last summer, REO Speedwagon and Boston at the Soaring Eagle Casino in MT. Pleasant, MI.  I've always loved Boston, so the chance to finally see them live was great.  And they ROCKED!  REO Speedwagon sounded just the same as they did on the live album they released back in 1973.

 

The best part of the night, though, was when my 17 yr old daughter said: "I think the show is about to start, I see old people with guitars."  :smileyvery-happy:

Party?!

I have to say the best Party Band I ever saw was the mighty J. Geils Band hands down. Peter Wolf didn't sit still for a second. It was such a great concert, practically in their own backyard (they were from Boston) so they really kicked butt.

 

Sad to say, it ended up being their last concert together as a band as Peter Wolf left the band soon there after for his solo career. We all know how that worked out. It think they might have since rejoined for a show here and there since, not sure.

I attended the 1969 Isle of Wight Music Festival. I saw (sort of, from a long distance back in a muddy field), Bob Dylan, The Band, The Who (interminable), Pentangle, the Bonzo Dog Band and a good many others whose performances I don't really remember. None of the celebrities who were there came back to that field and if they did they wore a soggy blanket like the rest of us. It was crowded but fabulous and felt very hip to be there. Bob still mumbles his music as bad as that night's performance of "The Mighty Quinn".  Erm....

 

Regarding 1973, why that was the year "Greetings from Asbury Park" was released. I have a demo pressing, which I quite value.  Who's old, then?
