sorry i missed your birthday - hope it was the best!
that rocks!!! thank you for posting those vids!!
Someone posted "The Real Thing" on YouTube, along with a blurb from Tbolin.com :
On October 6, 1974 Mouzon booked rehearsal time at Glen Holly Studios in Los Angeles, and convened there with Tommy on guitar, Rocke Grace on keyboards and Stanley Sheldon on bass. They recorded the material but it was all wiped except for one tape that Tommy took with him. That material contained "The Real Thing," which was released as a bonus track on the 1993 CD release of Mind Transplant on RPM, and along with rest of the surviving material on the Tommy Bolin Archives release Tommy Bolin & Alphonse Mouzon: Fusion Jam CD.
which elicited this comment from Alphonse Mouzon:
Al Mouzon comment:
So. according to Al Mouzon, this jam was not even recorded at Glenn Holly...It's worth mentioning that the version on "Captured Raw" is printed on the CD with a serious digital glitch and also was generally an inferior sounding version of the recording. The one released as a bonus track on Al Mouzon's CD Mind Transplant seems to have been more carefully mastered, there is no glitch and the levels are better.
Thanks for tracking down the origin of each of these tracks. It is somewhat annoying that they keep releasing the same stuff with different titles and calling it "previously unreleased." I wouldn't mind if they noted that it was previously released material, so the collectors would know exactly what they are buying.
i always love learning about the back stories on these records - i don't have a huge tommy collection or anything, but i do have some stuff. i don't have this, yet...
yesterday i bought my first Flying V guitar, and i must say it is a real baby, which got incredible tone for the price!. It is no Gibson, it is a Epiphone, a beautiful 58ties model with korina wood and alnico pickups.
It has a breathing percussive tone and a lot punch in the bottom.
I like Epiphone, also this little 5 watts amp!
So i have lot's of fun at the moment as you can imagine,
congrats on getting your first flying v!!
iv'e got the same epi '58 reissue korina v and the same valve junior!!!
Sorry to say that, but this album is just another victim of loudness war - one of worst example´s of this crime I have ever heard. I am not able to hear WHOLE album in 1 listening.... it´s just painful to hear that album! It´s really sad, because it seems that in that whole "noise" some really good music was hidden!
maybe 'noise' to you, but i hear vital, powerful rock 'n roll - the big beat, pumping bass, fresh guitar grinding through those marshall and orange amps, with possibly the greatest voice in rock on top of everything....oh yeah, my kind of noise.
i have had mine for a while now - can't disagree with anything or anybody.
this was damn good rock 'n roll and it sounds good now, especially in the remix.
For my $, CTTB was DP's most interesting effort...I think David was at his peak vocally, and what can you say that hasn't been said about Tommy? He was such an innovative player who just had such a great imagination in the way he approached guitar...He and Glenn were so locked in musically that it was sick..They were truly twin sons of different mothers...
agree 110% .....i hit shuffle on the ipod on the train home from work yesterday and what comes out first? "this time around/owed to g"
such a fine line up.....so good!
