    Ginger sounds loud because of the studio conditions and he's hitting more cymbals and I'd wager hitting/kicking a little harder than on the original recording...seems like instead of waiting until the last verse of the original, he started doing more right off the bat on the Glen show. Nothing wrong with what he's playing though, that's classic Ginger. I appreciate "Sunshine" but it just never got me like "White Room". One of the reasons is Ginger's kit sounds way better on WR. It would be nice to hear "Those Were The Days" once in a while. All just my take on things of course.

    Horrible. Neutered. Boring. Loses all power and groove clean.

    But it is an encouragement to all of us who've been made to turn down too low at a gig and made to feel ridiculous - it happens to the best of us. Even the very best.

    And it wasn't totally clean either, it was a bit crunchy so that Marshall was probably on 5 or maybe just slightly below. So it was still kind of loud.

    Clapton didn't seem at all bothered by it. I would have been totally thrown off my game, sulking, and my performance would have sucked as a result of my tone being hugely affected.

    Hate to be a killjoy, but he is out of tune. Bruce is a little better he's out, too. Still cool to see though. They both sound better in that Whisky clip.

    Not sure if it was Glen's show specifically but IIRC many TV/Radio/Studio spots back in the day had problems with any kind of fuzz/distortion tone regardless of volume. Even a guitarist in the Merle Haggard band ran into this when they cut a few tracks with a fuzz pedal.

    There's a famous story about Buddy Guy being told around '59 that he couldn't turn his amp up in the studio like he did in the clubs. After Cream came out and a record or two of theirs sold like crazy Leonard Chess personally called Buddy into his office to apologize for not letting him record with his "raucous sound."

    yep. Maybe it had to do with cultural bigotry back then - rock, especially hard rock, was only marginally acceptable for the masses back then, whereas a blasting orchestra was "legitimate" music. Witness Mike Douglas' irritation as the "Grapes" were making some off-camera noise. Almost the best part of the video...I wonder if there were any interesting off-mic responses from Skip & the boys...

    Those old sound engineer types didn't understand that guitars were often intentionally distorted...to them that was mortal sin and had to be resisted at all costs!

    There's a story that the Youngbloods were rehearsing for the Johnny Carson show and were not co-operating with the staff's stage directions which they found square & unhip. They were being argumentative while Johnny was in his office watching all this on his monitor. Finally he stormed down to the stage (a rarity) and threw them all out, never to have a rock band on his show ever again. Fuggin heepees...
