1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    I remember when it was a hit on the top 40, I am thinking it was 1971.
    Nice to know she is still out there doing it. I wish I had seen it but friday nights are gig nights........
    I wonder who did that nice guitar work on that song, as well as the production. Nice guitar sound.

    Fantastic stuff. Supernatural-tight rhythm section too. 'Clean-up woman' was a classic for sure, but my favourite is 'Pain' from the 80s. One of these productions that builds up without you even realising it. Then Betty hits you with that note.....
