Bass player is killing it on this track.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Hugh McCracken is playing too


I recall he played on Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl - is that correct?

Tis true.

He plays on Steely Dan albums (Hey 19), Pauls Simon & McCartney, Lennon and Art Garfunkel albums - apparently turned down the chance to join Wings.

Indeed!

Quite simply The Man for many of my own guitar heroes.

Mike Bloomfield certainly.

Oddly, Steve Hackett did a Chicago blues tribute album, Blues With A Feeling. I suspect it has never been synchlistened. I hope it never will...

It is worse than The Man's own Prog tribute LP from 1974, In The Court Of BB King.

Or did I dream that?


mwhahahahaaa



:lol: :lol:

mwhahahahaha!

Nice tubs

It bops along nicely

Yes - Gerald 'Fingers' Jemmott - I have always thought this track was a jam that was turned into a song.

Hugh McCracken is playing too - he gets quite a few licks and touches in.


I guess he was the one playing those wah wah licks.

B.B. is a master of dynamics - even more so live than on any of his studio albums. Never afraid to turn the volume right down, even to having the entire band laying off.
