Rare to see.....
How cool, a Bigsby electric mandolin. Wouldn't that have been practically a relic by the time this video was made?
Tiny Moore had his Bigsby mandolin built in 1952.
Well ... Roy played Les Pauls occasionally.
I would love to spend an afternoon sight-reading this stuff with two other fretted instrumentalists, at tempo, if possible. What great ensemble writing on display.
Vintage Fan,,That is a great video and song.All of the fellows in that band
are also great but Roy is one of my favorite guitarists..Thank you for posting
The last time I saw Roy onstage was in Texarkana, in either 1985 or 1986. He was playing a black LP that night.
Me too, in Austin, around the same time.
What an amazing, all star band.
Sadly, not many of those stars still shining.
There is one thing I have noticed and there are a handful of videos out there to show this; when Roy takes a solo, it is always well constructed to fit into the allotted measures, but his final note tends to end with a very abrupt staccato leaving the space open for the next musician to come in. It seems to me the next musician never cleanly picks up on it smoothly, so the transition is always a break in motion from Roy's part. It seemed to be his style to play and then get out of the way quickly.
I should say in this swing tune it is very much part of the style of swing to do it, but he did it frequently on other tunes and his solo here reminded me of that observation.
