Evening all!
The site is taking an age to respond again.
I bought this when it came out in 74!
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Hi kath

The board is really slow this evening!

You know, Leslie's first opening few bars/contribution to The Ash is a banjo.

Awesome

Yes Laurie Wisefield, ex Home guitarist. He went on to play for Tina Turner and for that Queen musical.

This has that Bill Szymczyk/Eagles sound.

Wasn't the next album produced by Tom Dowd?

Who then kept asking them to turn down the guitars?
