One of the early editions of Saturday Stream focused squarely on music that was recorded at Madison Square Garden. This week Phish announced an upcoming 13-show “Baker’s Dozen” run at the world famous New York City arena, which prompted another look at recordings that have been made and released from MSG. This week’s Spotify Playlist revisits many of the recordings from the first edition, along with plenty more tracks from memorable nights at The Garden.
Expanding from 15 to 75 tracks, the deluxe Part 2 playlist once again features Madison Square Garden Walk Of Fame inductees the Grateful Dead, Elton John and the man who holds the record for most MSG shows, Billy Joel. Also back for round two are the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Jethro Tull, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, LCD Soundsystem, O.A.R. and of course — Phish.
Among the new entries are tracks by Led Zeppelin, B.B. King, The Band, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Paul Simon, Ike & Tina Turner, Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty and several others. For the purposes of the playlist, recordings from the The Theater at MSG – once known as Felt Forum – were included, such as Deodato’s “Also Sprach Zarathustra.” Bob Dylan’s All-Star 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration in 1992 and the 25th Anniversary Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Concerts in 2009 provided a bevy of source material.
