Just heard this and thought of this thread.
Big Daddy, with bassist Johnny Hatton (BSO). That’s where he got the nickname Spazz!
The remaining Cowsills can still bring it.
those Mike Sammes basso backround vocals on some of the old Olivia stuff
i always find those fun to hear
Oh, sweet! Thanks for posting that!
That is awesome! My father used to love Olivia Newton John and I grew up hearing him play her first album over and over. I too used to enjoy those basso background vocals.. they were quite the combo. Haven't thought of those days in many years.. thanks for the memories!
Anything by Steely Dan.
Especially Flo and Eddie on Goucho's "Hey Nineteen"
Awe! Too many! Stones, Floyd studios... Clapton live 90's. Too many jazz fests to mention. Grace church. My daughters in choir! Backing vocalist can make a difference between a good song a great song. Keep on singin!!!
The Beatles, Poco, CSN (and Y), and even the dreaded Eagles all had great harmonies, as did Loggins and Messina, Joe Walsh, and Dan Fogelberg. And Dave Mason had the Pointer Sisters as his back-up singers on his tour after his first hit solo album Alone Together.
RIP Toots, love ya
i like that in the old tunes the bass and drum guys got more freedom.
i can justhear it "ok guys do your thing"
Completely agree on "You're so Vain." Great song, great performance that's taken to an all new level when you realize that Mick's doing the backing vocals. It was my freshman year roommate who made me listen to the song w/ headphones. I had heard the song a thousand times on the AM radio and never realized he was on the track. It blew my mind.
But respectfully disagree on "Heart of Gold." Great song, great performance--even though Neil seems to not love the song--but the backing vocals don't add much.
The little changes in phrasing just does it for me
From the 2 minute mark they just kill it..
