How Rock Bands Got Their Names

Let's See Action

Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's see freedom, let's see who cares,
Take me with you when you leave me
And my shell behind us there.

I have learned it, known who burned me,
Avatar has warmed my feet,
Take me with you, let me see you,
Time and life can meet.

Nothing is everything, everything is, nothing is,
Please the people, audiences,
Break the fences,
Nothing is.

Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's see freedom up in the air,
Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's be free, let's see who cares.

Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's see freedom up in the air,
Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's be free, let's see who cares.

Give me a drink boy, wash my feet,
I'm so tired of running from my own heat,
Take this package and here's what you do,
Gonna get this information through.

I don't know where I'm going,
I don't know what I need,
But I'll get to where I'm gonna end up,
And that's alright by me.

Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's see freedom up the air,
Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's be free, let's see who cares.

Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's see freedom in the air,
Let's see action, let's see people,
Let's be free, let's see who cares.

Nothing is everything, everything is nothing.

Music by The Who
The Who - BBC Sessions BBC Sessions
by The Who, recommended CD released in February 2000.
One of the most creative and explosive bands of the '60s, the Who didn't record an official live album until 1970. For fans of the revved-up, introspective, and humorous fare that made records such as My Generation, Sell Out, and A Quick One instant classics, 1970 was a good three years too late. Rather than referring to sometimes-dodgy bootlegs to discover what "Pictures of Lily," "Disguises," or "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" sounded like live, we are now presented with a surprisingly clear document of the band at--arguably--their peak. The CD, culled from archival live-in-the-studio radio broadcasts made between '65 and '73, keeps all the radio-announcer introductions and short interview segments intact, with a few bonus, real-life Sell Out jingles for good effect. A fabulous portrait of the artists as a young band, the disc brims with minor revelations--chief among them that they were pretty sorry as an R&B outfit and that (surprise) with Moon, Entwhistle, and Townshend bashing about, even a midtempo number like "Happy Jack" was a total scorcher live.

The New Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll
New edition of one of the best encyclopedia of Rock & Roll - Cheap!

2.00 x 9.15 x 7.31

Book Description
In 1983 the first edition of this book broke ground in covering rock and roll and its history. This new edition has expanded in size by more than a third to include new performers. In order to keep the size reasonable, some solo entries from the previous edition have been combined into group entries. There is a good range in coverage in terms of both time (Leadbelly to Del-Vikings to the Cranberries) and genres (Basia to Cypress Hill to Def Leppard). In addition to entries for performers, there are such topical entries as AOR, Grunge, MTV, and Gangsta Rap. Each letter of the alphabet contains a list of Grammy winners whose names begin with that letter. This information might be more useful arranged by date in one list. Black-and-white portraits are provided rather sparingly.
With its reasonable price and its currency through early 1995, The New Rolling Stone Encyclopedia is recommended for high-school and public libraries.

Reviews
This is the definative RockNRoll reference book. It may not contain every band that ever was, but does it really need too. Helpfully lists band members names, birthdates and hometowns, when and where the band was formed All the albums up til publishing date etc... Contains non-biased entries with a special page for each section on Grammy winners -- who won what and when, as well as a listing of the Hall of Famers. This is the way to start your Music reference collection, I know, because its how I started mine.
Selected by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as its official source of information, this authoritative volume, first published in 1983, once again tops the charts with its full coverage of every aspect of the rock scene. Accompanying the more than 1,800 performer profiles are essays that reveal the artists' musical influences, first breaks, hits and misses, and more
