    Fair point. I have absolutely no idea what sort of effort Eastwood makes to reproduce the pickups used in their repros. I was also unaware of the onboard fuzz. In fairness, Eastwood doesn't make strong claims of accurately reproducing out-of-production instruments. They aim for cosmetic repros, and if the general build features nail a particular vibe, so much the better. Note that the neck on the Eastwood is maple not aluminum, and there is a heel to it.

    I remember a local store had a Messenger at the time, but I was ignorant enough in those days to not count off the frets and think "How the hell did they get a neck to be stable if it was joined up that high?". I just looked at it, thought that it was weird he'd be playing a guitar that lacked a cutaway, and thought nothing more of it.

    I went to see her in 1970, I think, with the Full Tilt Boogie Band, at the Montreal Forum. James Cotton opened, and they had your basic S.F. light show with pulsating oil-and-water blobs. She must have played "Try" for about 20 minutes. The original "Cry Baby" by Garnet Mimms is pretty damn fine, but Janis does it justice too.

    Speaking of obscure bands, here’s a live-in-the-studio cut from Patto’s “Roll ‘Em, Smoke ‘Em, Put Another Line Out” album:

    Loud Green Song - Patto - YouTube

    The guitarist, Ollie Halsall, had been playing all of 4 years when he did this insane solo, playing a three-pickup SG Custom through a cranked Princeton Reverb. (For those of you who know about Eric Idle’s mock-rockumentary about the Rutles, aka the “Pre-Fab Four”, Ollie plays most of the guitar and bass and some of the keyboard parts on the Rutles songs, and Patto’s drummer, John Halsey, plays the Rutles drummer Barry Wom.)

    When you mentioned The Rutles, that grabbed my attention. Big fan of them I had seen Patto's discs in delete bins over the years, but never really heard anything by them. Halsall's playing, and tone, on that tune are particularly wicked; right up there with the solo on Crossroads from Wheels of Fire, in terms of reckless abandon. Thanks. I much enjoyed that. Here's a great Rutles concert from a couple years ago: http://www.archive.org/serve/Rutles2...nchesterUK.wma

    An article in the current Guitar Player reminded me of this Ronnie Montrose tune: Ronnie Montrose - Town Without Pity - Live 1978 - YouTube
    I have the album (non-live) version on 8-track, no less, and played that sucker over and over.

    Another Weekly Installment of those Obscure 60s, & 70s.
    Here's a band I always liked in the Late 60s.
    Was Part of the Flower Power Era!
    They pretty much had only one hit that I remember, but a Lot of good Album Cuts.
    Here's Three that I dug Up, Including their hit White Bird.
    "It's a Beautiful Day", Enjoy!
    It's A Beautiful Day - Wasted Union Blues - YouTube
    It's a beautiful day - Girl with no eyes - YouTube
    Extended Live Version of White Bird!
    Sound quality Isn't great, but you get the Idea of their Great Talent.
    White Bird - It's a Beautiful Day - Live - 1971 (stereo) - YouTube
    Keep Rockin!

    Paul Butterfield's Better Days live at Winterland, w/Amos Garrett doing that....thing.....he does, on guitar.
    Paul Butterfield's Better Days - New Walkin' Blues (1973) - YouTube

    Blodwyn Pig, a band that was sprung from the loins of the 1st-issue Jethro Tull.
    Blodwyn Pig - See My Way - YouTube

    The Move's original version of a tune made over many times: The Move - Do Ya (Studio Take) - YouTube

    Big fan of singer Terry Reid. He was originally slated to be the singer for Led Zeppelin but turned the gig down. This track amply demonstrates why he was on the short list: Terry Reid - I Put A Spell On You (Fillmore West - 1968) - YouTube His cover of the soul ballad classic "Stay with me, baby" (that most people will know from Bette Midler's rendering in "the Rose") is also pretty powerful: Stay with me baby - Terry Reid - YouTube He's still gigging around these days, and his pipes are what Rod Stewart wishes he still had. His rendition of the Four Seasons tune "Rag Doll" with Waddy Wachtel's house band is quite credible and adds new life to the tune: Waddy Wachtel Bernard Fowler & Terry Reid The Joint Rag Doll - YouTube When you consider its almost 40 years between this and the earlier tunes I linked to, I think he's held up pretty well

    I remember the live album from Jimi Hendrix "In The West", and one of the songs really gives me goosebumps when he plays the last F# cord at the end and lets it sustain.....
    JIMI HENDRIX - HENDRIX IN THE WEST - Little Wing.wmv - YouTube
    This wiki says that it was recorded at the Albert Hall in London. No wonder the live recording sounds so good.

    Beginnings has got to be my favorite track from Chicago. I was just trying to guess how many different percussive instruments were being played at the end. Cowbell, wood block, wood claves, maracas, tambourine, and various shakers.

    I went to see them when they were still Chicago Transit Authority. Terry Kath was a big big man. How big? He made his Strat look like a ukelele.

    Howdy guys... Thanks for the cool thread Big_Tee!

    Here's my super top secret contribution... I haven't listened to these guys for years... used to have a DD cover band rehearse in my studio back in the 80's... they turned me on to the band.

    If this doesn't take you back to your 4 track ping pong multi-tracking daze, I don't know what will...

    And two more since I am kind of on a Krautrock kick right now.

    This one is a recent version of a classic -


    And then a 70's version of another *mostly keys* driven song (but there isn't a lot of the classic stuff to choose from on Youtube) -

    Obscure in this thread is any Song by anyone in the 60s,or 70s, that wasn't necessarily a big hit, or gets constant Air Play!
    Some of Hendrix stuff didn't get a lot of air play, Then or Now.
    Especially Not When he was a live.
    Thanks for you post and songs.
    Peace,
    B_T

    How a bit more Robin Trower.
    Love the sound of that Strat, OCD, & Marshall.
