    LA electric fusion hot-shots take it down to the swamp!

    Always dug this tune because it's such a stark contrast to their usual sound. Love the changes on the main theme. Scott's acoustic solo is one of my all time favorites by him. Some tasty (yeah I said it) slide and open string stuff he does too.

    I've been spinning a lot of Scott lately. Revenge Stew is definitely quite different than most of their music. I'm surprised he doesn't play more slide, like on this song. He thinks he's a pretty terrible slide player, but I think he rocks it quite well.

    Here is one that I had forgotten about, until it came up in shuffle a few days ago.

    A classic from Scott. Willis is actually holding the strings down for Scott lower than Scott's fretting hand to make the action more playable.

    I can never hear too much Tribal Tech.

    "If the Band of Gypsys went to Berklee" is what this ^ tune sounds like to me. Badass. Scott does a pretty convincing slide with the trem bar. Re-examining Thick, you can hear how much Kirk was using that tambourine with his rim shots. Gave a kind of identity to those late model TT records.

    Nomad has been one of my faves since it's release.

    I haven't listened to Tribal Tech (or anything similar) for a long time, so the fact that the first tune (Revenge Stew) wasn't in their usual style wasn't as obvious to me. Although I still found many other things to like.

    Then I was busy around the house when youtube automatically moved on to the next song, called Salt Lick. It's probably in their more typical style, which ended sounding up refreshing to me after not having listened for so long What great playing by all of them. Damn, I love Scott's solos!

    It sounds a lot like Gary is playing an upright bass on RS. Anyone know?

    None just his regular fretless. Gary is my favorite bassist and one of my very favorite musicians and composers.

    One of the few people in the world who can follow a Henderson solo and not sound insipid in comparison.
