Which beatle plays those volume pedal guitar leads on I Need You? Harrison?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Si. George brought leftfield sounds in..12-String in HardDay'sNight period that the bYRds copped - eventually Indian of course - slide...altho' Paul played a lot of Leads - which was some friction eventually...

If you get the proper UK version of 'Help!' - which the CDs are now - you see it's a much stronger & more important album than we thot growing up over here...

Last time I heard I heard the hound on fmu was during a Hasil Adkins tribute on Spazz's show I think. Sounded every bit his old self.

hmm... must be this amplifier, which i'm suspecting plays mostly the right channel through both speakers. (or i just haven't heard this song in too long)

  5:00pm scott:

When was the last time that you had that excited expectation, with little information, just speculated rumour release of a new album from a great band?
  5:01pm UncleMarty:

Kubie & the Rats are total throw back ... on 45 !!!! Luv it!
  5:01pm MFlynn:

Wow, that’s Garland Jeffries? Great tune! I saw him recently with an acoustic set and it wasn’t good.
  5:02pm medson:

Hey Todd. Thanks for the tunes all the way up the Soaking wet parkway. Wore my TOPT T Shirt the other day. Now I know what Tom Jones went through ; )
  5:04pm seth from muddy creek:

Awesome set. Making me think about cheap trick
  5:05pm scott:

@coelacathnil: better run, thinks maybe that turboniam is going critical mass.

i liked that Garland Jeffreys tune in the day. not enough to spend my leaf-raking money on it but good to hear it again.

Clapton's most excellent friend and bassist Carl Radle is on that Harrison tune. Must remember great bass players, and great friends, gone 38 years now.
