A nice tune from The Gin Blossoms. Enjoy!
Go Stevie Go – what a great tune.
July 2, 1971 brought us the release of The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East. I could pick any song from it and couldn’t go wrong to showcase this astounding live band but ‘Whipping Post’ has always been a favorite of mine.
Classic Todd who celebrated his 71st birthday a few days back.
From Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere released an astonishing 50 years ago today. Turn it up!
Behind the Groove gives all the details you need to know about the recording of this 10cc classic.
The trio spend three weeks recording the vocal phrase “ahhhh” sixteen times for each note of the chromatic scale, building up a choir of 256 voices that are spread across a sixteen track multi-track tape. Wanting the voices to repeat in perpetuity, they create several tape loops each twelve feet in length. Having made numerous tape to tape bounces of the choir section results in an audible degradation of the vocals, creating the eerie, soft sound that is one of the songs hallmarks.
Nice jam from The Marshall Tucker Band. Enjoy!
Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George and John Hammond cover the old Blind Faith classic.
