Hey man, thank you for mentioning the band Dada. It must have been 20 years since I've last listened to them, but today I've listened through those first two albums, twice, and they still sound so, so great. Incredible how many great band/players drift out of your head, isn't it? But, sincerely, I really appreciate your putting them back on my radar. Cheers!There are so many killer tones, but here are the first two I thought of:
The lead tone in the Black Crowes version of Hard To Handle, and the Strat tone in Dorina, by Dada. Both are masterful in tone and technique.
Can we celebrate some Sonny Landreth?
How ‘bout Tab Benoit
EDIT: Maybe not fair to Tab, but JLH with Ry:
It’s one thing to aspire to tonehood in the studio, but another to produce it live.

The kentucky headhuntersBefore I click, what’s the name of the band that did this?
Robin Trower had a college gig in my home town, around '73/'74. My buddy and I sneaked into the sound check, in a cavernous sports hall, with fantastic acoustics. Robin liked them, too- because he played for nearly an hour, whilst the other band members came and went.....
Better than the gig.
