Chick Corea

I don’t typically delve into music much here but in honor of Chick Corea’s recent passing it just seemed appropriate. I was a little to young to have attend this show or even know who RTF were. I’ve since seen all the members of Return To Forever perform live accept Lenny White. There aren’t a huge number of live albums that were recorded in Albuquerque venues but this is one. If memory serves it was recorded at the since demolished Civic Auditorium. I only attended a couple of shows there but it hosted some greats, including Led Zeppelin. An older friend of mine of mine used to joke about mining the marijuana resin from the ceiling with a pickaxe before the building was demo’d...







Kettenkrad


I can’t really say why but riding a Kettenkrad is on my bucket list.

Iceberg of Bernalillo


The Iceberg café located just beyond the railroad tracks in Bernalillo, New Mexico. This photo of the Iceberg café and Rio Pecos Gas Station was taken not long before they moved it back to Albuquerque. For a white, a Polar Bear lived on top of the Iceberg.
