Just listening to some of their old hits on the 'puter and thought I'd ask if anyone else dug the band from it's early 70's glory days?

I really liked the live album and Suitable for Framing.
I was only in grade school at the time, but I still think it was good stuff.

MAMA TOLD ME NOT TO COME ......Written by Randy Newman. TDN's version is rocking and I love the electric piano.

I have a version of Randy singing it (on his 1970 live album from the Bitter End), it's only his voice and acoustic piano.

Three Dog Night was a great band.

When you start counting, they had a lot of hit songs.

I've seen both Three Dog Night and Chuck Negron in the last few years, both tour every year, especially the fair/outdoor shows and casinos.

Weird to see your post, Dave, 'cause I've had "20th Century Masters: The Best of Three Dog Night" in my truck all week. A great summary of Three Dog Night, just chock full of excellent songs. The 20th Century Master series is on Geffen Records, and if I'm not mistaken there is a best of The Allman Brothers Band among them. Track listing:

1. Joy To The World
2. Shambala
3. One
4. Black & White
5. Mama Told Me Not To Come
6. An Old Fashioned Love Song
7. Never Been To Spain
8. Liar
9. Eli's Coming
10. Easy To Be Hard
11. Celebrate
12. The Show Must Go On

Hell yes, love their music. Floyd Sneed is one of the most underrated drummers ever. Great band, great songs. "Cyan" is a wonderful record.

Did you know that Three Dog Night took their name from an Australian expression meaning a really cold night? In Australia, they sleep with dogs to keep warm at night, and when it's really cold out, it's a "three dog night."

I always loved Three Dog Night. The stations back then really wore their music out, but it seems that had one hit after another. Where's Kenny? We need a TDN tribute thread.

Here I am..LOL !

I like a BUNCH of Three Dog Night songs, but I always thought they sounded better on studio stuff as opposed to live. I'm going to scope them out on youtube. See what I can find.

I have another tribute half complete, it may be done tommorow. Hope it goes over well.

If not then i'm gonna have to call on "Godzilla".

Their vocals where fantastic.

I started getting into music by listening to Top 40 radio via my battery powered AM radio that I received as a Christmas present. So, these 3 Dog Night songs were part of my early musical education.

Eli's Coming
Joy To The World
Mama Told Me Not to Come
Family of Man
Black and White
One (written by Henry Nillson)
Celebrate
The Show Must Go On
Liar
Never Been To Spain
Shambala

What a great singles band they were!

Three Dog Night was an excellent band, remember seeing them in concert around '71, and they were tight, both the band and the three vocalists. Was very impressived. Always enjoyed their music, but seeing the band live made me appreciate them that much more.

Btw one of Three Dog Night's first hits was a cover of Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness" and from what I understand they got their arrangement of the song from hearing the Hourglass play it.
