    Just started listening to this again recently...Great great album (like all of Scotts)..
    What cracked me up was that in the car yesterday I looked at the sleeve notes and saw that it was co-produced by Michael Landau ....
    Now I can definitely hear his influence on the record - Scott plays very like him in certain sections...

    Anyone else find this?

    It's like one of those things that once someone tells you something about something, even if you've listened to it a 1000,000 times, it takes on a new blatant life after you discover the "new" thing .. .. (Squeaky drum pedal in Zep's Since i've been loving you for an ex)

    Not sure if this has been talked to death - sorry if it has =)

    PS Sorry for the diabolical grammar and punctuation above..:bonk

    Amazing disc.

    That version of "Rituals" is worth the price of admission all by itself.

    Yes me too, not only the CD booklet said some tracks were landau's produced, but in tiny letters with all the thanks for the sponsors,the doggys bla bla , there was a big thank you to mike Landau for having Made Scott aware of the power of the Eb tuning (à la Hendrix, Chuck Berry....).

    Incredible .....

    I've been aware of this way before ....

    Thanks for the reminder. I'll put that on my iPod straight away.

    Landau has had an influence on Henderson since his first solo record, 'Dog Party', back in '94. Henderson asked Landau for advice on how to get a bigger, bluesier strat sound for that recording and Henderson's never been the same since.

    And I 100% agree with fusion58. 'Nomad' was my first experience of Henderson and I always loved 'Rituals' but I think the WTTB version is possibly even better than the original.

    Can't wait for the new Tribal Tech & Henderson releases this year...

    Yes , that is part of the ritual to have a bigger blusier strat sound : the Eflat tuning,
    make the bends more flexable...

    Mr. Sphaghetti, check out the forum on Scott's site. There's an archived Q and A section with a lot of great info straight from Scott. It's a fun read, Scott has a great sense of humor and is very generous with gear info.

    I remember Scott was transcribing Landau licks when I was at G.I.T.

    I know he's been a huge ML fan for a long time.

    I'd love to hear a Landau/Henderson collaboration =)

    Has this happened in a studio yet? (Both dudes playin! Up there in my fantasy duets with Brian Setzer and Will Ray!)

    Henderson basically ruled out the possibility of an album because it'd have to be covers and he's not interested in doing that. It'd be great if they did something like Renegade Creation but it seems unlikely. Anybody know Mike Varney? Get him to float the idea to the boys.

    I actually feel that the writing on this albums isn't quite up there with his other solo albums. Good to be sure, just not quite as good. That said, the playing is outstanding and Ashes is a desert iland track for me, just a gorgeous track
