    Wow this is one grooving mother!!! You in da pocket! Serious sauce on this one! Damn you sing well too.....

    Your versatility never ceases to amaze me! The open string bits in the solo were really nice.

    YEAH MAN!!!!! That was awsome - somewhere up there Lowell is smiling ear to ear!!!! What are the chances of us getting a backing track? I'm a total Lowell fanatic - would love to take a stab at this... with vox or without :)

    Thats a HIT
    Its going into permanent rotation on my Ipod.
    LOVE the slide work!
    Great vocals, hook, mix, the whole package.

    Looking for a great stomp comp for slide? Look no further than a BJF.
    Talk to Dean (Pinkstrat)

    hey thanx guys- everyone seems to get the musical history!

    Red Ant-all the parts are programmed/played by myself over many tracks-I'd have to go in and do remixes-not too hard-just a tad busy this week.

    On another note - I programmed Skin it Back-Dixie Chicken-AND Fatman in a Bathtub[LIVE-version!]-all the keyboards drums bass-almost note for note.
    I also updated Skin it Back to a more of a heavy funk with loops-once again-tucked away & probably needs dusting off. I ll try:AOK

    Ed-Lowell used a Tele bridge pick-on his Strat?-wow! -never knew.
    My Strat has Harmonic Design -mini humbucker.
    ...his sound was still pretty big even on the bridge.

    Scott>>I quit Soundclick a while back-cant remember why-I will hunt down Crazy-my current site im not allowed to post clips--may have a new site soon tho.

    In the immortal words of Yoda - "There is no try. only do" :D

    Funny, i've actually started doing almost the same medley - mine was "Spanish Moon -> Skin It Back -> Fat Man", but got bogged down and never finished. I'd LOVE... did I say LOVE... LOVE to hear that!!!!

    Another awesome tune, John! :RoCkIn
    I'm with Frankenstrat on this...slide, vocals, composition, you've got the whole package. More importantly, you've captured the "essence."

    On the medley, I hear Spanish Moon fading into Old Folks Boogie. ;)

    I have SO many variations on the medley, from various shows.... my favorite might be Santa Monica Civic from 1973... also has an absolutely KILLER "Two Trains" on it...


    Man i miss Lowell :(

    Oh sorry- I assumed....
    BJF- Bjorn Juhl- the Mad Professor- he makes amps and pedals. Lots of pedals. His pedal company is BJF
    http://www.tonesafari.com/bjferef/
    He makes this compressor pedal. I think is the Pale Blue Compressor. All his pedals have different colors associated. Anyway- Dean turned me on to them at the Tampa Tonefest. Tomo and I both immediately ordered one. I think it will be all over Tomo's new CD for his funk stuff. I leave mine on almost always for my slide stuff. Super transparent, very tuneable, and (shh) extremely quiet. Two of my other friends went with the BJF, one replaced his Keeley.
    Dean can get them- although they are in short supply. If you find a used one (unlikely) you want the 3 knob version.
