He, the Richmond! One of my fave Jack Bruce tunes. Thanks, Bob.

And don't beat me to the punch!
Sat. 5/5/12 9:41am paul in FL:
This song is slightly insane.
Sat. 5/5/12 9:47am Todd in Miami:
Alwick's Records...plus Vogel's Records around the corner...yup bought lots of records there in the 1970s. Are they still around? (doubt it).

Gabriel Mekler, who Bob mentioned earlier, was an interesting guy. He was a classically-trained pianist from Israel who managed to talk his way into a job as staff producer at ABC-Dunhill in the late '60s, while still in his early 20s. He was instrumental in the formation of Steppenwolf and produced their first few albums, as well as much of Three Dog Night's stuff. He died in a motorcycle accident while still in his mid-30s.

We've lost a Beastie Boy and a Burrito Brother in the last 2 weeks. :(
Sat. 5/5/12 10:34am paul in FL:
Ethridge left the Burrito Brothers after the group recorded its first album, “The Gilded Palace of Sin,” in 1969, and eventually returned to work as a studio and touring musician, playing with Ronstadt, Ry Cooder, Randy Newman, Jackson Browne and many others.

that Joe Carroll track was wild. he lives up to his name.
Sat. 5/5/12 10:38am scott:
Chris Ethridge was also in Willie Nelson's band for several years, and was briefly in the not-so-hot refried Burritos in the late '70s (with Joel Scott Hill, with whom he'd made the L.A. Getaway album).

Vividly remember this Davis version of "Man".
