does anyone know what he was using when he recorded this stuff?
i seriously love that tone!
Love it too. Always struck me as Blackie into a tweed in a big room.
I reckon there could be an echoplex on there... Definitely some sort of delay...
I freakin love that movie!
I know I think I am gonna watch it tonight for a nightcap.
I had the soundtrack for years and have lost it? WTF, I don't loose stuff? Thieving elves in the night!
You gotta watch it at nite with all tif lights off and loud! Its gotta be loud!
Neil Young has a Fender Reverb Unit and a Maestro Echoplex and they must have been vastly used for that sound. It is as drenched as it can be! Guitar is probably Old Black. I remember reading sth about the White Falcon, but this is probably wrong. After all, at the CD, there are some "artistic" dark, almost shadow-like pics, where the shape of Old Black can be identified. Amp-wise, tweed deluxe is the one that comes to mind, but once again, I've come across folks stating it was a Magnatone. In any case, the expoding amp is not the case here. The main characteristic of this one is the "wetness" and of course the playing.
Anyway, very unique piece of music. Not talked about as often as it should, IMO. Very spooky stuff...
Cool cool movie Mitchums last one too...and the music is just awesome!
Its definitely rekindled my GAS for an ep3 echoplex... My timefactor just doesn't get close enough... I'd thought about getting an ep pre and putting it in a parallel loop with the timefactor but to buy all that stuff i might as well just get an echoplex and be done with it...
Prescription Electronics Overdriver-(better yet Honey Bee >Tim)-Skreddy Echo-Bigsby equipt something
The acoustic version of this is amazing as well
i might know someone who wants to get rid of an Overdriver
a 59 tweed deluxe modded with 6L6's, an altec 12 and the Whizzer, fender reverb unit, echoplex, and probably Old Black
Whatever it is, it's also all over the live album Weld. Fantastic.
Some people say they could listen to their favorite actor read a phone book. I could listen to Neil Young noodle through that setup...
That's an awesome tone.
I've been telling people about that movie for years. And the soundtrack is a big part of why it's so good.
I feel that the music and the photography and the dialogue and the acting meld in an integral way , really a complete masterpiece . Jarmusch hitting on all pistons , his work is sublime and gives me goosebumps . His photograpic vision really reminds me of Orson Wells , in that it is a truly unique , singular vision , Neil Young is a perfect collaborator and an equal in every way !
My sentiment exactly.......well stated!
Spot on assessment as far as I'm concerned!
"Dead Man", it stars johny Depp and Neil Young did the sound track...
you should check it out...
