    Are you going to the Mott gig at the Barrowlands on the 20th of next month? Zal Cleminson doing the support so should be a good gig, let me know and I'll buy you a pint on the night. We just started doing 'Once bitten' in the band, great tune to play.

    Nothing illustrated the great divide that existed back then between youth and adults better than this One Toke cover. Lawrence Welk thought it was a modern spiritual!

    Should be a great gig! But I don't think I'm going to be able to make it. :( First in a long time that I would actually have wanted to go to :cry:

    1979.




    00:30 to 00:34 - The simplest (but effective) guitar solo on record.

    Ok Eddie.

    The wife and I perform this 1971 hit as a duet.

    Well, no, Starland Vocal Band were not the American Abba. Sorry, but Abba were far, far superior to SVB. Better songs, better arrangements, better production, and Angie and Frida were way hotter than the chicks in SVB!

    Another vote for Amos Moses, just a slightly different version!

    There seems to be a lack of Skynyrd in this thread....puzzling...

    Cordially, please read my post again: I said that VIDEO was the American equivalent of an ABBA VIDEO. The staging looked like an inexpensive knockoff of the typical ABBA videos. No comparison of the groups was implied.

    What effects are Zal using to get that sound? Love it!

    Not sure, Zal usually only goes for one effect and that's volume, lots of it. Might just be the recording but it does sound like there's a wee trace of a flanger in there, possibly a treble boost for the solo but pretty sure that's just him winding up the bridge P90.
