    Steve Cropper also used a Fender Harvard Tweed amp in a lot of Stax Recordings with those guys in the house band.. I think you can catch a glimpse of that in one scene

    This is one of the coolest threads ever. It will become part of the TDPRI lore.

    Senrik, that's totally awesome! Thanks for posting the back story. That movie was part of my childhood, but I never paid attention to the backline until I saw this thread.

    Do you know which scene? With the exception of the scene in Ray's Music Exchange, it looks like the other amps are BF Fenders. And in that scene, it looks like Matt Murphy is the one plugged into the tweed amp.

    I haven't noticed the Harvard amp, but I guess this is a good excuse for seeing the movie again.
    I think Matt Guitar Murphy is playing through the Pro amp in the scene in Rays Music Exchange, but I know the amp belonged to Dan Ackroyd and that he used it for his harp mic both in the movie and in live shows. I am planning to send him a letter with a picture of the amp and kindly ask him to verify the story.
