Title: Music videos that feature EB0 to EB4 and SG variant basses...
Post by: Highlander on June 03, 2011, 01:42:15 PM
Well, the Thunderbird video thread is ticking over nicely so I thought why not give the other classic shapes a spin...

 As far as I'm concerned this video could never be posted too many times, this song, and Andy Fraser's playing ( whole band really) gives me goosebumps. There's a tone going on with that EB and his pile of Marshalls that I'll always envy - simple, beuatiful rock with lots of air, no mindless, soulless wanking going on here. Kossoff is almost crying during his solo, Fraser's is brilliant ( he's not 20 years old at the time!). Definately one the best, underappreciatted bands ever.

You are so right about that vid. Ironically I saw Free at some high school gym somewhere outside of Chicago shortly after 'All Right Now' hit the radio and was not at all impressed. In fact I might have said they sucked, I don't remember. I do remember they were too loud and too loose. It must have been the wrong place at the wrong time.

Kings of Leon - pre-stadium daze, before their hair and 'taches were chopped and someone gave them his U2 collection to listen to REAL CLOSELY. Back then they only had a The Strokes collection to listen to ...

With a seventies walnut EB-3. Looking at their right hands in this vid is heartwarming - quite obviously they had not been playing for too long yet. Their bassist (nowadays an avid and skillfully melodic modern TBird pick player) says he winces when he looks at those early vids now, "because our playing was so bad". It has its rehearsal room charm though.

Of course, not a single close-up of the bass player, even though he is going nuts on that number.  I think he had an EB-3 but I can't tell for sure.

I was amused by the fan being removed from the stage just after 4:30.

Ju want ju some bass tone?

Check the Who's "Youg Man Blues" from the same date:

I think the director hated bass players.  At 4:15 you can see the Ox's fingers moving - but there is not only no close-up of the bass player, they didn't even try to get him in any of the shots except the open and closing shot.

When combining the search words "EB", "busy bass player", "Jethro Tull" and "Spanish" only one thing crops up: The late great John Glascock! And with Carmen he played an EB (with Tull it would be Fenders and eventually the Stingray though he would also pick up a TBird sometimes). Good shots of him at 0.45 (once you have waded through or enjoyed Amanda Lear's introduction!) and later. Seems to have been a walnut or stripped sixties EB-3, short scale and judging by the bony proggie sound with only the bridge pup running, obviously some Andy Fraser influence there. Busy he was. He basically played baritone guitar with Carmen, but nicely though. It got him the job with Jethro Tull too, who saw him when Carmen opened Tull's Warchild tour in the US and sank like a stone though you do wonder why, flamboyant wardrobe, odd meters, folk influences, hard rock riffs, a certain feverish nervousness in the music, all the Tull ingredients were also in Carmen, albeit with a Spanish and not English folklore slant. Maybe they looked too glam or lacked an immediately identifiable front man (the guitarist, David Allen, was their musical brain, but not their front man). Or, quite possibly, flamenco dancing during lengthy and sophisitcated instrumental parts proved too much for the common Tull'ite!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxCGT8l0Rao&feature=related

David Allen's sister Angela, the singer/dancer/keyboardess, and John were an item at the time; given her more recent musical output he proved a lasting impression.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZMXmyxm0e4&playnext=1&list=PLCF0B30C45E1FAE78


Ritchie Blackmore loved Carmen. (And tried to unsuccessfully poach John Glascock from Tull for Rainbow though he eventually found someone with a similar, if more sparse style in Bob Daisley.)

Pete's awesome sound is probably mostly due to his flatwound strings IMO. When you listen to his sound across a variety of their albums the common denominator is always that thudding full of tone sound that only flats will give you. I play almost exclusively on rounds and regularly get sound envy with guys who have that Pete Agnew kind of sound. I recently put a set of flats on my Cargill fretless but so far this is my only conscesion into this coveted territory.
Title: Deep Nazz
Post by: uwe on September 02, 2011, 03:45:27 AM
For whatever reason, Roger Glover, the producer of the Razamanaz album, is reputed to have played all bass tacks on Razamanaz, including Vigilante Man. Glover, forever the gentleman, has never commented on this one way or the other, but neither have Nazareth denied it (perhaps they bargain on the extra sales to DP fans like me who cherish the Razamanaz album as a prime example of Rogers bass playing!). In any case, the fact that the studio version features a roundwound strung bass (as Glover preferred) and is played with a different feel, lends credibility to the story.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiSg2SUvMFI

The most gloverish bass playing on Razamanaz is featured here - sounds like straight off Machine Head, typically idiosyncratic Glover timing and phrasing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su2Rn6hYx3I

And which other Purple musician played on this track uncredited, class, intro at 0.10?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r3Jw6xN0AU

Come on, hear the similarity here at 4.11!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rvkvjummb7g

Needless to say, you also hear him here, intro at 0.22:

Dear Lord, that can't have been too hard even for you, can it?!!!!

But for the really, really slow and thick ones among you, I'll even supply a pic of him (far right) together with the brother of a Rolling Stone (far left), you can see some similarity in their Faces (nudge!).

Now Roger Glovers playing is something I know a little bit about having played in a DP tribute band for years and ya know Uwe, I have never listened to Razz in the same way as I would anything from Purple. Its always been an album that I just play and listen to the band as a whole. Tomorrow morning its going back in the car for a few more re-runs. Have a listen to the bass on Fool Circle as an example of Pete Agnews Flatwound sound. Especially noticeable on the more sparse reggae sounding tunes like Let me be your leader or the live version of Cocaine (one of my favourite non Cale versions).

One of America's finest with a disciplined version of one of their greatest hits played in their usual so(m)ber state. Cann-abysmal but great.

The (lamentably late) Jance Garfat is the odd man out, playing solemnly and steadfastly his seventies EB-3 or -0 (hard to catch him, the camera man was probably distracted a lot of the time). I have a soft spot for him because long before I earnestly listened to music or considered bass playing his very prominent "flats with a pick" bass sound was the first bass sound I actually conciously registered on a pop album, namely Dr Hook's Sloppy Seconds (without ever realizing what it was, I thought it was drums initially  :-[ :-[ :-[ ).

And as regards the guitar "solo" - Ted Nugent eat your heart out!!!  :mrgreen:


And here is them sending out an earnest if steel guitar-drenched message of diversity to a probably slightly bemused/bewildered German TV audience (and Alexis Korner!).

With Jerry mentioned, his son's Jason moving tribute to him fits right here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqRbFxM6zXk

Scheff Sr. played on this Scheff Jr. composition at the invitation of Chicago without knowing the lyrics, the finished song was only played to him afterwards over the phone which had him start crying ...  :)


Come, let's talk just you & me
For once just let me be.
The little boy you used to know.
Relive that summer's bliss.
Cause they came no more like this.
Those were the days,
the days when love was still in style.

All I ever dreamed I'd be
is what you are to me.
Bigger than Elvis.
And for all the missing years,
a memory reappears.
Bigger than Elvis.

I saw you on TV.
The king, you were to me.
Could you feel me watching you?
At times my heart got mad,
only heros are allowed
to run free, that they could come back inside of me.

All I ever dreamed I'd be,
is what you are to me.
Bigger than Elvis.
And for all the missing years,
a memory reappears.
Bigger than Elvis.

We know the sadness of goodbyes
must be the one that's bringing tears to your child's eyes.

Oh, from now on I'll walk with you
making music like you do.
Would you believe I always knew?

You were never hard to take
in some mysterious way
Bigger than Elvis
And for all the missing years
your memory reappears
Bigger than Elvis.

Now I've found the missing years,
forgotten all my tears.
I've found the missing years



I saw Chicago this summer. I wasn't expecting much, came for the opener Blood, Sweat & Tears really, but good as Blood, Sweat & Tears were, Chicago were justly the headliner. It was more than two hours of all their music old and new played exceedingly well and fresh, with huge drive and passion. I became a convert. And Jason is not only an excellent bassplayer but also a great singer doing both the Cetera era and his own stuff full justice.

No, that was done by Wilton Felder in L.A. All the Jackson 5 hits were done there. Felder played on a number of their early hits, Ron Brown and Don Peake played on some others. After Jamerson moved to L.A., he played on a few of their later album cuts, but no singles.

Somewhere a few years ago I saw an interview with Felder where he mentions what bass he used but I can't remember now what it was. Maybe a Tele Bass.

"Slade In England" was THE premier Slade web-site for many years. It's owner Dave "Greywolf" Graham put a great deal of time and effort into cleaning up & distributing rare Slade footage and audio which left many fans deeply grateful.
Yes, it was the Lochem Festival in Holland - he states so in his description on YT.

One fan claims to have the whole gig on video, which most take with a pinch of salt.

Post by: Basvarken on September 11, 2012, 10:25:53 AM
Oh I'm sorry I didn't read the YT notes. The video automatically opened on my iPhone and closed when the song was finished.

I'm pretty sure the Vara (one of the Dutch broadcasters) did not broadcast the entire concert. They usually showed two or three songs by each artist on festivals like these. If that fan has the entire video it must be a video he shot himself, which is highly unlikely with the technical possiblities of home video cameras and getting them past security back in 1981...

VERY interesting - there are only 3 tracks known to exist for certain. Would you happen to know whether the camera-men you see on stage were solely for that purpose and whether they would have recorded the whole gig to select tracks later OR left the stage the rest of the time?

Post by: Basvarken on September 11, 2012, 10:51:13 AM
Usually the broadcasting companies (and photographers) only got permission to shoot two or three songs per band on festivals like these. Managements and record companies were pretty anal about high quality footage showing up on the bootleg market.

Even to this day festivals like Pinkpop only show a few songs per artist on TV.
Whereas German broadcasting companies like WDR were allowed to film and broadcast entire concerts at the famous Rockpalast broadcastings.

It was at the end of a 20 minute medley which starts with Cum On Feel The Noize, into Chuck Berry's "I'm A Rocker", into "Boney Maronie" (Lennon style) into "Whole Lotta Woman" (Marvin Rainwater) into ZZ Top's "Waitin' On The Bus" and finally Born To Be Wild, by which time sweat was pouring off their hair, chins & noses etc etc......................... :-\  I guess you had to be there; I was ......... many, many times.
Only reason it's never made it to film in it's entirety is that Holder thought film crews would spoil the flow of the gig and because he had deep pockets and short arms.

I love the harmony-drenched, beatlenesque, "my-name-is-Jim-Lea-and-I'm-a-serious-musician-please-don't-judge-us-on-how-our-lead-guitarist-dresses"-Slade best. The really hard rocking Slade - particularly in the latter part of their (second) career were a bit too heavy-handed for me. In comparison to "Miles out to sea" and "When the lights are out" - both compositional genius - a track like "Lock up your daughters" sounds like a Kiss B side (yes, they could still play that song convincingly due to their enegized live prowess, but the composition itself is "nuzzing to rite 'ome a-bout". Speaking of Kiss, the best non-Slade Slade song ever written is still Crazy, Crazy Nights, don't you agree?

Impressive Slade history sir! ........ and yes the "old guard" fans knew they were just pandering to their new-found HM fans then.

Little known fact is that the oft quoted retort by Dave Hill of "You write 'em, I'll sell 'em" was actually part of an argument he & Jim had at the BBC regarding Dave being more interested in having his picture taken than learning a new riff.
Hmm, not sure about Crazy Nights, wasn't "I Want You" supposed to be Kiss's homage to their inspiration?

Oh I think I must have, Scott & myself have bounced a few vids at each other on here over the years.
The white bass that Nod plays in the "Everyday" vid is the exact same bass (when it was red & still had a Mudbucker) that Jim played since forever. He didn't have it long after it was refinished, it was stolen two years later & never seen again. He then had the custom EB3 made which Scott's is a clone of.

My own fave vid of it in use is this one from SF Winterland in '75.

Loving the Alice Cooper stuff too, keep 'em coming!!! He had a lot of i'view airplay here in recent weeks, dunno why, not gigs that I know of - I used to listen to his morning DJ spot on Planet Rock quite a lot too.

"Miles out to Sea" and "When The Lights Are Out" are two of my favorites off Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, which is also one of my all time favorite Slade albums. Over here it barley had any impact and I think back in the UK the old guard found  the album a bit soft, never the less I loved it. I also found their later stuff heavy handed but I still enjoyed it though maybe not as much as the early material. Stu the version of BTBW you posted from '80 lacks alot of the power of the Slade Alive version. For reasons you already stated it sounds rushed and frenzied.Jimmy and Dennis Dunaway are the players that made me want to play a EB3, the Thunderbird won out in the end as my main axe but I still love a good EB3..................and my JD ;) http://youtu.be/LyXIVi34sDI

Thanks for the link Scott; another excellent piece of editing by Dave Graham there. The original film (a TV show of 6 songs) fades out after the 2nd verse, so he's cobbled together parts of other video & done a fantastic job of fitting it to the music.
When I first heard that version when I was a kid it made me want a Telecaster as well as an EB3. I never heard a Tele tone that sounded more like an egg-slicer plugged into the mains.
So I got me one of those too.......
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v476/Maddogcole/Tele.jpg)

They used Hear Me Calling by TYA as their regular opener from 1969-1973, changed to one of their own songs for a few years then used it again in 77 & 78 - I loved it. The band came onstage in total darkness, a pin spot on Nod's mic for the first verse & then the stage exploded in light (& pyros in the late 70's) after that. In all the years I never saw Jim bust a string, which is amazing with the way he punishes them.
More EB3 close-ups, with the extra middle (John Birch pup) which Nod also had at the neck in his Tele (multi-purpose from all those pole-pieces).

Thats a great clip! Pre glitter looks like H has yet to go off the deep end. Love the shots off the Modded EB3. It wasn't till about 2003 That I meet Stu and joined SIE that I ever saw video of Slade and was treated to live performances. as a kid I saw them twice on TV both times with dubbed in music over live footage or lip syncing. Stu, Dave Graham and SIE really opened up everything so much I didn't know, I didn't even know about Don's near fatal car crash. Stu that's a great looking Tele! I have been tempted to do that myself!

Indeed. I saw them like that in 78. In a Wiesbaden club with their oversized PA, all muscled up from incessant if commercially futile US touring in the years before. They whispered Hear me Calling into the mike, you could basically just hear their backline, then Noddy sings "Hear me calling LOUD!" and - wahooooom - the full PA is switched on. It was so friggin loud - beyond painful, it was more like being hit by a car - that the guy next to me - how many times have I reported this already here? - had an immediate attack of nose bleed. Very joyous. What's a little nose bleed against a real rock'n'roll experience? I'm sure he never washed that bloodied T-shirt.

Great sound too, I put a SD Broadcaster replica pup in the bridge. It's heavy though, I think the control plate is brass - chrome plated, it should have been mirror plastic. No chance of neck dive though!  ;D

That'll be down to Charlie their sound man. He loved his toys and used to get awful upset if he couldn't use the full set up, regardless of the size of the venue. I saw them in a tiny disco in Blackpool, England, where the ceiling was so low they couldn't get the PA horns to fit; he moved stuff around so that he could, leaving the band with a tiny stage area so they had to do Shadows type side-steps in one spot. It was like a sauna almost as soon as it started.

Aaah! Doh! Yes, I had looked back over the thread & while Nazareth got a mention I saw I hadn't put a Slade link in, you're right - very remiss of me!
You were at the NME show? Wow, that's one of their legendary ones! I was too young to travel that far then. IIRC they had a mocked up brick wall which they kicked over to walk on stage?
Their '74 tour was the 2nd time I saw them; "Slade's Crazee Nite" with a band called Beckett as support (Many years later I found a still sealed copy of the album Beckett were pushing on the tour, for all of 50p (about 33c ?)

Donnington was in '81, Reading was '80. They were offered Donnington again but Nod turned it down if they weren't top billing, which wasn't going to happen with AC/DC at their peak.
Which one is you?......  ;)

Who is nowadays "lead bassist" with Uriah Heep. I've never heard a bass player in a non-prog band play with as much improvisational freedom as he does with modern Heep. He solos more than Mick Box, their lead guitarist does. July Morning is one long bass solo with backing. He's cool, not just his sideburns.

He still used that EB-3 with Heep after he joined mid-seventies, inter alia on Free Me. He's a customized Fender P man now.

I think that is probably an ESP that looks like a Les Paul.  I know I have seen that bassist Will Boyd at least once with a Les Paul-shaped ESP.  However, I do think he plays different basses, so it isn't like it's easy to pin down exactly what he might have played at any given time.

It certainly does - but my guess is that we´re fooled by the fact that the metal paint on the bridge pickup ring is not yet stripped off. If the pup also is flush with the ring, it sure looks like T bird pup. This instrument seems to be from the early side of the sixties, and they all came with the metal painted bridge pup surround.

Anyway, this is a really good looking bass, love that finish! I´d go monk for a while too, if I could get a hold of one with original polaris white finish.

Being an AC/DC fan, i also notice the guitar player´s jet firebird, at least it looks like it. Now, what about that fuzzy tone he´s got? After the intro he seems to flick a switch (!) on the guitar an turn the fuzz off. Maybe he´s just muting it.. Or maybe it was him that stole the fuzztone circuit on my ´63 EB0F. He sure looks capable of that sort of thing.

Regardless of genre, there are good songs and bad songs - it's that simple. SITP happens to be one of Chicago's good songs. Yeah, they did alot of sappy pop stuff after TK's death, but the earlier hits were usually pretty darn impressive - even the mushy ones. Not to derail (here? ha!) the thread, but Chicago is yet another glaring omission from the RRHOF, as is Three Dog Night (who, BTW, were very adept at choosing "good" songs to record). Both were undeniable chart forces during the early-mid 1970s, at least here in the US - and no slouches in terms of musicianship either. Both are deserving of whatever "prestige" membership in the RRHOF brings.

Agreed.  In high school, even the metal heads would listen to CTA in the school library.  Three Dog Night was an awesome band!  They usually did covers better than the originals, and they picked a wide variety of material.  Even my kids love Three Dog Night, and it wasn't something that got played around the house much.  A combination of stellar vocals, rock solid band and good material.  Here's them, doing Argent one better.

You could not escape Three Dog Night at the American school I went to. I never had issues with them, they certainly had a knack of elevating most of the material they covered, kind of like Manfred Mann's Earth Band whose covers always sounded better to me than the originals. And I did own "Cyan" as an album and only a few years ago bought a bunch of their CDs.

And if Joy to the World doesn't put you in an ebullient mood a couple of seconds into the intro, you have no heart!

I saw Chicago a year or two ago, not expecting much, I only came for Blood, Sweat & Tears, their opening act. Contrary to all expectations, Chicago gave a firework of a great show of their material old and new(ish), hugely varied, but without any seams showing, I was very entertained and the musicianship was top notch. Nice bass playing (and singing) by Jason Scheff too. I'd go see them again anytime.

Chicago and BS&T are good examples of brass-backed rock bands that played extremely well and very tight.  When I listen to their recordings, I'm always struck by how incredibly well they synced and played together. 

The rock bands with brass sections seem to have fallen out of favor....and that's a shame.

You have a point there. And on a non-pro level: Impossible to get everyone together for a rehearsal.

But a sharp horn section is something. Adds dynamics and rhythmic emphasis to music like very little other. I love those fancy brass arrangements that populated the BS&T albums.

The other thing about a horn section is that it will bring discipline to a bass player in a hurry.  There are generally no holes to fill, so you'd best find the pocket and work from there.  It's a whole different approach from a power trio.

These guys have been around for over a decade in Cincinnati.  At one point, they were ready for a huge marketing blitz, complete with licensed comic books and the whole deal.  They don't play often anymore, but their shows tend to be big events.

A note about "live" appearances on UK TV from this era - the Musicians Union insisted that acts appearing "live" had to produce an "alternate/live" version, to keep musicians employed - annoying, but it resulted in a lot of differing mixes, or sometimes totally different recordings, so they could comply with the rules...

We have "Honest Dave's Seal of Approval"...! ;D

Uwe... the end of the Yardbirds and the beginning of LZ is a bit blurry and there was even a live LP released but quickly withdrawn with a song entitled "I'm Confused..."

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/2d/LiveYardbirdsfeatJimmyPage.jpg)

I had a boot' of it and still have it on tape somewhere but it is very irritating due to the dubbed "cocktail-bar" noises... :-\

It's not a song by Page and he nicked it off a support act they toured with...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTsvs-pAGDc

As a curious aside one of the Yardbirds (reputedly) lived in the house next-door to me (we moved here in '92) and Page used to go to my school (Heston) - you noted the Heathrow connection to DP too being that I was a born 'ounslow boy... ;D

Honest Dave's seal of approval has way more credibility than that of the people who were ignorantly disagreeing with me.

I can remember the excitement of getting the first Yardbirds' album.  I think I must have been 14 and it was a Christmas present wrapped under the tree.  I was literally losing my mind having to wait until Christmas to open that present.  Seriously, it was tough, and although long ago, I can remember the intensity of all that.

My oh my, Frau Steed, that footage is kick-ass!!! Never seen it before, even a live version of Thanks for the Memory which I never even knew existed!!! Lea was dissatisfied with his own keyboard playing on the studio version (needlessly though me thinks) and wanted a "real keyboarder" to overdub what he thought should be only the guide track, but no "real keyboarder" could replicate his attack so they left his take on.


Also noteworthy for the twin lead solo - a rare thing for Slade even though they did it in their very early days before their commercial success. Wishbone Slade!!!  :mrgreen:

The loudest thing I've ever witnessed was definitely Motorhead on the "Motorhead" tour - their "first" tour round a load of smaller provincial venues - Cambridge in my case - they supported  BOC with an earlier lineup but that was not the same... never seen them post Fast Eddie...
Probably my fave Slade gig was during their second coming - a Christmas show at the Hammersmith Odeon (approx 1980) with Noddy resplendant in red suit and beard for a certain song - as a general rule they did not play it and at the bigger shows made the audience do it, even in summer... ;D
When I saw them in '74 at Wembley it was duing the peak of their career, but Wembley was a cavern and they were dots - Home supported them for that gig - NME awards show... great show, but...

Good shot of the doubleneck and its bass-half at 1.30, knob positioning make me wonder whether the whole doubleneck was even a lefthand model he turned righty or whether a lefthand bass wass grafted together with a righthand guitar.

EDIT: You are absolved, Ken, you were referring to the Ohio Players, right? Can't open that vid in Krautland either ... Yet I was goose-stepping to conclusions, forgive me!!!

 In ever rarer idle moments I've been looking for video evidence of Pete Agnew (of Nazareth) actually playing an EB live thru several Marshalls as he he did when I saw them back '75.........

Day of the show........Before my buddy Jim and I sat out front smoking pot waiting to get in.

No luck finding the EB at all  :sad:  Instead, we have ample evidence supporting Uwe's insistance of Roger Glover being an influence on the band. Forward the video to 0.48, you'll see Pete playing Roger's modified Rickenbacker 4001!  Kudos, Uwe!

I once had a dream in which Kicks played in its entirety throughout the dream.  It sounded really good, too.  Along with a dream in which I was a Roman soldier, that's one of the weirdest dreams I've ever had.

A couple of my all-time faves are The Great Airplane Strike - especially the bass lead at the start of the number....looks like Fang has a Hofner.

And "Hungry", which was another biggie and is a pretty powerful song....and the bass just slams the listeners all through it....

Is the EB well running dry already?

Holdsworth fans should know this singer well, and Mick Moody is there as well.
Nice EB0F playing here, although at 4:26 parts of the pickguard is modded or taped over.
Not many EB0F clips from the early days around.

Also note the dog sitting between the orange cabs, the trippin´ audience and a purple marshall that matches Paul´s

Interesting, the EB 1 didn't have the Schaller behemoth bridge yet back then. I thought BBM were underrated and suffered unjust backlash for the obvious Cream connotations. Gary Moore could be grating most of the time (be it solo or with Thin Lizzy), but I found him relatively pleasant with BBM. Funny seeing that vid now, I bet poor Gary did not envisage that he'd be the first to go among those three.

I have a friend who is a big fan of both Cream and BBM.  He seems totally convinced that it was Gary Moore's looks which kept BBM down.  When it comes to matters such as these, he can make a convincing case, since he is convinced that rock stars should always look the part.  The point being, of course, that the public cares very much how someone looks.  Somebody, I suppose, might try to argue that Ginger Baker doesn't look so good, either.  My answer to that would be that he is too much of a living legend now for that to make much difference.  In fact, during Cream, I think Ginger may have looked the coolest of all, kind of like a pirate/rock star combination.

Your friend is not alone. Gene Simmons said the same thing about Gary Moore in the eighties: that if it wasn't for his looks he'd conquer American radio and MTV. In my view it's not a recipe for success, but it can help more than a little. Peter Frampton was a good guitarist, capable songwriter and had a hard-earned touring pedigree both with Humble Pie and his own band - still, Frampton Comes Alive did not sell for the music alone.

Now Ginger looks so bad he reminds me very much of the way my father looked before he died.  I see no way he could be in good health.  However, during the Cream days, he did dress the part of a rock star, IMO.  I thought Jack went a little over the top with that fur hat.  Eric Clapton looked way too much like a dandy.  It's all subjective, but Ginger did look cool to me.  Now, however, he acts like a madman, and probably always did.  Like breaking the reporter's nose who was doing the article on him.  Stuff like that is just inexcusable.

I wasn't even aware that Gene Simmons said that.  He gets criticized a lot for being outspoken.  I can take it or leave it, but find that much of the time he is accurate, although maybe a little too brutally honest.

They were. The only modern EB-0 is the Epi one which as their workhorse starter model has been in their catalog for ages. By the sound it could well be an early sixties Gibson though (when mud hadn't gone overboard yet, more a middish growl) or one after market equipped with a - gasp! - Model 1 which would explain the more audible sound.

Gibson hasn't (re)issued one pup basses in a long time, the newish Grabber II excepted, the most "recent" ones I can think of all stem from the early to mid eighties, i.e. original Grabber, the WRC "Clown" basses with their sole Rick Turner diamond shaped split-coil (which never made it into production) and the Victory Standard. Plus the 1986 limited run of TB Rev IIs for Japan.

Thelast ones came out in the late seventies, sales were already miniscule by then. No one in his right mind wanted a deep sounding short scale back then. In the following decades gibson didn't even produce a short scale up to the advent of the SG reissue.

Great footage, havent seen this. Lost tapes are always fun!
I recently got back a cassette with the 'only known recording' of a band i had back in '93.
The band lasted for about a month, and was just some friends having a good time between other band projects.
I always record and document, so hearing this for the first time in 20 years got me tasting the lost tape-fruits big time!

From that day I never borrowed tapes to drummers.

Nice one!  At first I thought it was a Rivoli (headstock shape was stretched due to bad pause/movement in shot), but I think it's an EB2.


I love how rustic that vid is.  It's like they finished recording the song and shot the vid in the stiudio's C room right then.  Love the awkward trumpet player failing to stay out of the shot when not playing and looking like he dunno what to do with himself, the drummer with the tall boy on the monitor (nicely framed camera guy), Roland pulling a very good Desmond Decker on a casual dress day impression and some fine skank legwork all around. ... but my one biggest music vid pet peave: guitars not plugged in.  Especially inexcusable due to the location. Come on indeed.

I say Rivoli by what's bopping up in the bottom left corner at the beginning of the vid. Rivolis were popular at that time in the UK, Bruce Foxton from The Jam had one too.

Not a video, but he who may not be named holds an EB-2/Rivoli. Must have swapped it with the bassist for the pic.

True, Sutch was no musical talent, but he had an eye for one. And Blackmore credits him with important lessons in showmanship and letting him play pretty much what he wanted. He'd only pull young, shy and bashful Blackmore to the front of the stage when he played a guitar solo. And with the Savages he played a lot of solos.

It's possible that his accomplishments might have been greater than I had been led to believe.  I'm always ready to get a more complete view of something.  (Well, unless it's something which makes me look wrong.  Then I might not be quite so eager.)

  My buddy Dave  runs the SIE board and he has painstakingly put together much of the Slade video that is out there, often using multiple sources of video and audio to make a complete performance. The performances are live but some of the tracking may be a we bit off due to the multiple sources. Anyone catch the glitch in Just Want a Little Bit? For a brief instant around 1:40 Jimmy is playing his Ibanez Flying V!

Yeah he was. One of my favorites. There's a bunch of other great Bowie footage filmed at the BBC Studios from '72 on Youtube. It's really great. Crystal clear footage, great sound. It was filmed at the BBC for later broadcast on The Old Grey Whistle Test. In that stuff Bolder is playing a Mustang. I love Hunky Dory era Bowie. Timeless.

But I think Randy Rhoads guitar playing is what made this album sound so classic. And not the plop-plop-plop bass sound of Mr Daisley.
It' s not Bob's fault or the EB3. It's just the production that makes it sound so horrible.

When I had Blizzard on vinyl, I don't recall the mix sounding so great either. A little like it was recorded in a dumpster under water. The 2011 re release CD sounded clearer but still maintained the aggressive rough feel. Randy was definitely cooking too, along with the whole band.

It sounded different from any other recorded bass sounds of the time, totally individual and I believe it was a conscious move by Daisley who had been a P Bass player with Widowmaker and Rainbow and to my knowledge never played the EB live with Ozzy, he was really just looking for that sound to record. His pick attack is so hard and swift that it works with the EB even if you have Randy Rhoads beside you. I read an interview where he said that he is still happy about the sound on that first Ozzy album today.

But even with long scale basses, Daisley prefers a middish honk edge in his sound if he gets his say soundwise (and is not just a session man) as he did with his own project Mothers Army:

It's probably from Turner's years in a New Jersey covers band (Ezra or whatever their name was), he's real good at emulating other people, doing different styles, too good sometimes.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7avxC4mfbvk

Just listen to him doing the singer/songwriter thing here at 3.00:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dwl3bvOqM68

This stuff is real rare, I never knew that anything of his career pre-Fandango existed, much less on youtube. And better still: The Ezra bassist plays an EB so it's all VERY connected!

Do we now have to rewrite British pop history just because Jimmy Savile was an undetected/"conveniently ignored for too long" pedophile? I'm all for giving those people a trial when they are still alive, but acting like they weren't there at the time when they were there is intellectually dishonest and historical revisionism. It's like Tony Iommi wiping Dave Holland's (ex-Trapeze and Judas Priest-sticksman, convicted child molester, proclaims his innocence) drum tracks off one of his solo albums. And I prefer reading Phil Spector's production credits on future "River Deep, Mountain High" releases too, convicted murder (many decades after the production) or not.

If we started emptying our museums of all art that was painted/created by people that would today qualify as child molesters, we would sure look at a lot of blank walls. The whole concept strikes me as archaic and superstitious: Let's eradicate all evil from our historical records and - voilà! - it never happened or at least we are not reminded of it anymore. Easy way out. I won't burn my Rolf Harris CD where he spoofed a couple of rock classics (some of them quite entertainingly) and don't see myself advocating pedophilia if I don't (in any case, it was a gift from someone who had illegally made a copy of his CD, so it was actually to the damage of Rolf Harris!).

If we started emptying our museums of all art that was painted/created by people that would today qualify as child molesters, we would sure look at a lot of blank walls. The whole concept strikes me as archaic and superstitious: Let's eradicate all evil from our historical records and - voilà! - it never happened or at least we are not reminded of it anymore. Easy way out. I won't burn my Rolf Harris CD where he spoofed a couple of rock classics (some of them quite entertainingly) and don't see myself advocating pedophilia if I don't (in any case, it was a gift from someone who had illegally made a copy of his CD, so it was actually to the damage of Rolf Harris!).

It's terrible that Savile was able to get away with what he did, and for so long, but it's really disturbing to see his history erased, if that's what's going on. It's even more than intellectually dishonest. Hiding his past is the kind of action that lulls people into being complacent instead of being on guard against future offenders.

I think it may be darker (in higher places) and there is a lot of guilt that it was so blatant, but so many chose blinkers... a certain British entertainment company has so much to answer for... incredible, considering how obvious it was and for how many decades he was involved with kids programmes...
There is something (very much) going on at present where police officers are being asked to come forward; also that they will be protected from prosecution, for being ordered to look the other way... :o

I hardly ever see Gibson basses. As it turns out this local group, Big Mean Sound Machine out of Ithaca, is fronted by the bass player (composition, arrangements, production) who seems to favor the vintage models. In the video he is playing an SG with a slot head

You catch a glimpse of his SG in the opening sequence and a better shot of the head stock at about 3:12.  I'd be curious to know more about that bass.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJZ4eM9R7Bo

Riff-driven funk. These guys are worth catching if they play in your area

I saw them on a gig recently and the bass looked like a vintage hollowbody (EB-O ?): archtop, 2-f-holes and single pickup at the neck, classic pickguard.  You can see it in some of their other videos but it's hard to make out.

Bargeon, The SG bass as you say is actually called an EB-0. It's confusing because Gibson calls their two pickup short scale bass with the same shape an SG bass now. A good site to learn about vintage Gibson basses and their variations over the years  is flyguitars.com (http://flyguitars.com)

Now that is one cool band, je suis impressed! Love the Hohner Clavinet!!!

As to the bass:

Walnut finish mudbucker-powered short-scale EB-0 (maho body and set maho neck) from the late sixties when Gibson inexplicably went for that "classical guitar" look as headstocks go. Not as collectible as an early or mid-sixties EB-0, but it has its own qualities, sturdier in build and a bit more flesh to it, incredibly deep-sounding. Love it or hate it instrument. Prevalent in the sixties and early seventies (in various shapes and forms), but lost ground when bass sound tastes changed thereabouts. Almost off the map from the midseventies to the nineties, slight resurgence in more recent times, which is the reason why Gibson released the SG Bass, which is not a true reissue of the EB-0 but echoes some of its traits in a more modern, milder, less opinion-splitting guise.

What I found interesting about Jerry Lewis was that when not in goofball mode he was totally unfunny and stern - I could have easily imagined him as a Nixon advisor or a NASA or CIA hardass in a non-comedy movie, he had that air about him. I remember a German TV show in the seventies where they played his famous typewriter sketch

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ozd6W1wyzo

before the inteview and audio and film were ever so slightly (really just a little bit) off sync and he noticed immediately and it visibly bugged him throughout the interview, he was uncomfortable. He was a perfectionist and very hard worker. I certainly do not agree that he was talentless even if devoid of Dean Martin's natural charm on or off camera.

Jim Carrey reminds me of Jerry Lewis. They both have that slightly dark psyche looming underneath the screwball antics. And Ronald Atkinson's acting as Mr Bean - another troubled soul pulling faces - owes a lot to Jerry Lewis too.

His brand of comedy obviously only appeals to certain people and I'm definitely not one of them.   If the French and others want to give him awards, that's their business.  But in my opinion I think there are many people out there way funnier.

With Uwe posting Jam in the Ric Dept I did a dig through and find something for this Dept...

When I went electric mid seventies I bought an EB2/Rivoli copy from a shop in Hounslow (near Heathrow, London) - the PC was in the shop at the same time but out of my price range... (£200 or £220 approx.)
A year later, I saw a white EB2/Rivoli in the same shop for circa the same price but I only had £180, so popped back home and begged the extra cash, and went back to find it had been bought, apparently by Bruce Foxton...
Oddly, the PC was back, for £180, so cash departed and that one came home...!
Anyway, this may be that white bass...

Michael ( if you please ) Fennelly was with ( Curt Boettcher's ) Millennium before he started Crabby A. Millennium's Begin album is the lost treasure of the 60s

I didn't notice till toward the end that the singer is playing a 12 string ES-335 (or 45 whatever...)

I noticed a tailpiece on that 12-stringer so that'll be "whatever".......  ;D It was his guitar of guitars at the time, he sings its praises in the liner notes of his demos comp Love Can Change Everything.

.....

You're right, the label publicists called him Mike, seems he always went by Michael.

The Milennium's Begin album isn't lost anymore, the whole album is on YT. So is Crabby Appleton's debut.

I meant "lost" in the sense that far more music lovers should know about it ...... It's still for music nerds only which is a real shame AFAIC

I love the Crabby album as well but Begin comes from "another place" and should have been up there in every Best Of All Time Top 100 instead of musical farts like { fill in your own frustration album(s) here } .....  ;)

On a very nice Michael Fennelly note: Lane Changer, his 1st solo album, is finally getting a CD release next month

Mike Fennelly was the lead singer. He's got a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Music-of-Michael-Fennelly/111002668936782) and has links to videos from his various projects, Crabby Appleton demos etc.

At this point it's not often that I hear someone that sounds like I've been listening to them my whole life, but I love discovering "new" stuff, so thank you, Dave. I've been stuck on that page for a half hour and suspect I'll be listening to more before I'm done.

This, Uwe, is good solo Iggy.  It was the song that first turned me on to him (came out at about the time I started paying attention).

As much as I hate to say it, Steve Jones playing guitar on something is often an indicator that it wasn't a very good
 (e.g. The Janie Jones record he was on, though I do enjoy that ironic Sex Machine cover because it seems to bother everyone I knowso dang much)

If your signature song has "rock me baby" in the chorus, you're not country. Period.

It has nothing to do with his indie rock background. Artists cross genre lines all the time.

Yeah, except with that one mic backwards (vs the other 2), you don't actually have to flip the phase on it; it's out of phase by placement.

If they had floor monitors, it would have increased feedback.

To his credit/excuse: He was knackered from flying over from the states and didn't have his guitars with him. The band has an excellent groove and must have better nights. My son is currently not speaking to me because I quipped about his idol, but here we are amongst ourselves:

- Lenny Kravitz would have done a better job though the audience was very (in my view: too) benevolent with what was essentially a lacklustre performance. He could have had the over-sold out place cooking, instead he stumbled through the set like some college band.

- Nofi, you'll scold me as Germanic again, but from a modern day blues guitarist I expect full fretboard dexterity (from any lead guitarist worth his salt actually). Know where your notes are or at least feel them for Chrissake!! Herr Clark was not born in segregation in a Mississippi shack and had to play a broken two string guitar shoebox with a five fret neck because the Ku Klux Klan kept him from going to school. He could have learned to improvise freely over the neck, it's not that hard, it's only 12 notes and they repeat themselves. This guy had his hands glued to one position in the neck when he soloed. Jimi Hendrix he is not.

- Bum notes: One bum note can be charming, more bum notes a form of expression. Consistently bum notes - more so than Slash on a bad day - is just not having done your homework (because the Ku Klux Klan wouldn't let you?). Herr Clark can't even solo properly in a major key over a major chord progression. Someone should give him a Status Quo album or maybe Francis Rossi can take the time to teach him directly the art of major as opposed to minor pentatonic soloing. Listening to "Jessica" or even "Sweet Home Alabama" would help too in case Status Quo albums are all too hard to get in the US.  >:(

I'm ranting now, I know, but I've witnessed too many Carlos Santana, Ritchie Blackmore, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, Steve Hillage, Alex Lifeson, Rory Gallagher, David Gilmour, Uli Roth, Buck Dharma, Tony Iommi, Warren Haynes, Billy Squier, Michael Schenker, Laurie Wisefield/Andy Powell, Francis Rossi, Peter Frampton, Mark Knopfler, Steve Morse, Reeves Gabrels, Ted Nugent, Steve Vai, Phil Manzanera, Randy Rhoads, Steve Howe, Jimmy Page, Kerry Livgren, Bernie Marsden, Steve Lukather, Gary Moore, Steve Stevens, Glenn Tipton, Brad Whitford and Mick Ronson solos at live gigs to be impressed by Herr Clark. He is less than average - that includes Angus Young and Slash. Behind all the trendy vintage mojo crap the emperor has no clothes on. Or had left them in the US that night.

- You thankfully mentioned Robert Cray. I had the good fortune to see the man at a small club gig some months ago - he only played two or three songs from his popular phase, but he played and sang wonderfully. With taste, feeling and - that's no contradiction - technique. Of course Cray is a much more controlled player than Herr Clark, but that doesn't make him less expressive. Someone who is not either shouting at you all the time or mumbling unintelligibly can still tell a story.

If my son reads this, he will disinherit me!

Nice to see Wigwam up there. Not sure what lineup that is, but I do like the Fairyport LP. My illicit copy has a bonus track tacked on that has the band working their way through every possible alternate voicing of Sibelius's Finlandia, before striding into their own composition 'Losing Hold'. I think its a live recording, or at least a taped rehearsal. The Hammond organ is right on the edge of overdrive, and the leslie speakers are captured in stereo. The bass sounds a bit thin, but it could be an EB-3!

I give Herr Seebach's bassist credit for a good Ripper sound and some classic 70ies disco bass runs. The Orlando Riva Sound bassist gets an honorary mention for inspirational guidance on how ALL Jazz Basses should really be finished.  8)

Speaking of giving credit, as the the above vid from 1979 shows, Cher was always a sartorial trendsetter, this is her six years earlier riding both a horse and Native American chieftess style. And - flash thought! - it just occurs to me how bass playing and female clothing really have one principle in common: It's no so much where you put something, but where you leave something out.  :)

Right, and they don't sound bad at all. But there is a sonic purity to the single coil pups of the SB 300 and 400 that makes me prefer them.

Is there a "Music videos that feature EB basses" topic ?

Anyway here's one in a 1956 performance of Little Richard.

Round the 1:06 mark there's a good shot of the bass

Yes. Here he is with Little Richard's band. But he seemed to be enjoying himself.
Oh and there's an EB2 wielder next to him.

The songs is from Jim O'Rourke's "Insignificance" album. This is from his latest "Simply Songs". Same bass, but different player (most likely Sudoh Toshiaki):

I'd never judge Jim for being overweight, many of my friends are. But none of them would go on stage looking like that.

That looks like his '61, which IIRC supposedly was an early production model that came with a three way instead of the Varitone.

According to Graeme Pattingale's Cream pages on Jack's basses, the '61 came with the 3-way. The one with the diode was a different bass, a later model with the chromed p/u cover.

I think the new album with Josh Homme is brilliant.
Never cared too much for Iggy. (Although Lust For Life has proven to be an all time classic that survived the Punk hype)

But he is different than anything you'll ever hear. You immediately recognize Iggy's music. Even the world hit single China Girl that he wrote has Iggy's signature all over, even when somebody else sings it (Bowie). I think that is quite an achievement. To be unique and to keep being it for decades.

This new collaboration with Josh Homme is what synergy is all about, as far as I'm concerned. Homme is unique. Iggy is unique. And together they create something that
is possibly even better. That song Sunday has a great riff, great rhythm section, great vibe. Better than most crap you hear on the radio.

I'm not going to claim to be some kind of Iggy Pop super fan, but I think he was hugely influential, and pretty f'ing cool in a wild, out of control way. And if Bowie worshiped the guy, that's good enough for me. I also once named a cat after him.

As much as I like Iggy, I accept that his ballady moments are often quite full of Limburger.

But yeah, that line is good, and not the only one in Nazi Girl, where he seems to be channelling Lou Reed at least lyrically. Guitar is very 16 year old who's into Zepplin, and charming in that way.  There will always be a soft spot in my heart for Candy despite how terrible it is.

Post by: uwe on September 09, 2016, 07:41:27 AM
Bowie was a musical genius, but he was also a vampire for inspiration, sucking up influences from people as diverse as Dylan, Hunter/Mott the Hoople, Marc Bolan, Lou Reed/Velvets, Iggy/Stooges, Phillysound, Robert Fripp, Kraftwerk, Chic and Scott Walker (uncannily on my office Brennan B2 as I write this!). Most likely, all of Iggy's albums together achieved less sales than Bowie's Let's Dance (which had China Girl on it), Herr Osterberg could certainly use the royalties at the time. Those late 70ies "comeback" albums of Iggy have Bowie's production and songwriting written all over them, they are dead ringers to Bowie's Berlin output of the time, albeit more accessible, Bowie obviously kept the toally off-the-wall stuff for himself or James O. didn't want to do it.

Iggy and Bowie rubbed off on each other and both profitted from it. Iggy's ingenious rhythm section of the Sales Bros would later be 50% of the great Tin Machine, to my mind still Bowie's most criminally underrated project. And Tin Machine had quite a bit of Iggy influence in it too.

Post by: wellREDman on September 09, 2016, 10:39:45 AM
I heard a story which may or may not be true, but I hope is,
  That Bowie had some contractual thing going on where someone (manager? Angie?) had some kind of legal right to a percentage of his output so Bowie specifically kept anything he wrote during the Berlin period that he knew would be a massive hit in his back pocket til the thing had expired, and then put them all on Let's Dance

That vid wasn't even serious in its original form. The Stones btw were another great influence on Bowie, Diamond Dogs (the song) and Rebel Rebel are both consciously written as Stones homages. You can hear the Brown Sugar on Bowies mind when listening to Diamond Dogs.

When Mick Taylor left the Stones around 1975, Mick Ronson (who had been fired by Bowie prior to Diamond Dogs, the album)was rumoured to be his replacement (a third Mick in the Stones!). It never happened, but Ronson would have been a great fit in the Stones, both musically and visually.

Ronson might have legitimised the various nods they made to glam rock during that period? I'm not sure it would have been the best fit; Keef's razorwire chunk versus Mick's cello-like singing sustain and guitar 'orchestration' might have been a tough match. It would have been interesting though! I'm not sure Mick would have looked degenerate enough? Part of the Stones' look during the '70s is that wasted charm, whereas Ronson seems a bit more esoteric and whimsical? Still, it might have worked as I understand Taylor left because they weren't being purist blues enough?

Not bad, but the mix is waaaaay too vox-forward.  He's not that good a singer (not bad, but no diva), but miles above everything else and dry as a bone.

The second live vid is better in that regard.

Who could ever forget Frank J Wilson and his boys? On the other hand, if you did, you're forgotten. It's hard to follow someone who's trying to follow someone to "The Other Side". But still, the band included an Eb0, at least for a while. Until it, at some point, vanished. Also, I'm prepared to say.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bh4se9YMV3A

Though Wilson and his pals didn't only look for what was gone, remember! They looked forward too, which is easy to understand when you look at one of the European copys of Last kiss. http://www.45cat.com/record/45stu42201
Yes, bass, and guitar, is of the Fire- and Thunderbird stock!

Tbird and Firebird aside, I'd like to forget J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers. Last Kiss was so overplayed, and I just hated teenage death songs.

Although he didn't quite make it to age 50, he was married eight times.

There was a time - late seventies - when Barclay James Harvest absolutely ruled Germany, their Gone to Earth album from 1977 stayed in the German charts for nearly four years, making it one of the most popular albums in Germany ever. They had constant sell-out tours, huge gigs (with The Police and Dire Straits as opening acts), a chain of hit singles, radio power play, you name it. Everybody's favorite whimp rock/light proggies.  :mrgreen: Critics hated them and no one actually admitted to liking them, yet there were just way too many album sales (a million of Gone to Earth in Germany alone at a time when you went gold with 50.000) for all those people claiming that they did not listen to them to actually tell the truth  ;D, a real closet guilty pleasure!

Yes, I remember liking Gone to Earth too (where Hymn, the two chord - G and D - first track above, is from), but then lost track of what they did other than their general ubiquity at the time.

I did some searching but couldn't pin it down. It's a late 60's Mopar like a Dodge Dart or possibly an AMC car.

I don't know if Holden was part of GM then - I assume it was - but it's not like any GM product I've seen.

I think you're right. Check the ridge on top of each fender (chrome trim was present or not depending on model), the parking light size placement, and the design of the grille. Also, that Mopar body series was available in a convertible. It's a little hard to tell in the video, but I think the driver's side rear view mirror is also a match between the two images.

It was called an EB-1 in 1958 when the EB-2 was introduced.

I take it you're not familiar with the Collins Kids and Joe & Rose Lee Maphis. They were familiar faces on TV in our house. Semie Moseley built those doublenecks.

Larry is still very active, plays a lot of rockabilly events. Lorrie is less active. Joe Maphis died about 30 years ago. Rose Lee Maphis is 93 and still working (http://www.tennessean.com/story/entertainment/music/2015/01/10/rose-lee-maphis-country-music-hall-fame/21529393/).

Frontiers Records is an elephants' graveyard for aging AOR musicians and they are always creative with pairing up old heroes - some of it sticks, some of it doesn't.

Yes, I have the 3 CD. Yes, I like it. Yes, I know it sounds like Mister Mister for people with a college degree who know that Stockhausen wasn't a German concentration camp. I own up to it all.

Don't blame yourself for not hearing about 3 back then, they floundered even quicker than Emerson Lake & Powell (whose album wasn't bad either though there is nothing in the least prog about Powell's "Barbarians at the gate!"-drumming).

Don't you even start there bud, we both know that Brian can actually sing, and what we have here is him giving the ACDC overdriven vocal treatment to an even older classic standard.  You look me in the eye and tell me that's not hamming it up for the crowd (it's what he wants; I am still trying to decide whether the song choice is dramatic irony, or intentional piss taking).

I begrudge them not; just sayin.

My expectation from Paul Podgers and Brian Johnson has never been the collective reinvention of rock music. Good vocalists they are, but they are both incredible "safe treaders" and especially Rodgers has never recorded anything edgy in his life, The Firm stuff was probably closest and he felt uncomfortable with that.

Plant is another matter - I respect him for his solo work (he is is own man) though he is neither Shakespeare, Dylan nor Chuck Berry in his lyrics.

That was great to see and hear! Had to Google it, but that is Aynsley Dunbar on drums, but still Trevor Bolder on bass. Hearing Trevor with another drummer is interesting. I'm up to speed with Bowie's Santa Monica live recording from the previous year,but this weird post-Ziggy last hurrah is sort of new to me. Some of the lush schmaltziness of his next phase is starting to creep in, but it is still fundamentally a Ziggy performance. What always strikes me is how closely Bowie's voice paired with Mick Ronson's. On the Santa Monica recording it is like hearing two Bowies.

To Starship!

To Whitesnake! That's his spectacular drumming on the 1987 album. Tommy Aldridge was just used in the videos and the tour and his drumming has none of the organic (yet sophisitcated) feel Dunbar's has. The over-the-top (yet brilliant) drumming on 1987 is, however, much John Sykes' do who would sing the drum parts he envisaged to Aynsley (but credits him for doing a great job "translating" his guitarist thoughts).

The change from Bowie to Journey wasn't so radical at the time, early Journey was a Santana muso collective with jazzy instrumental forays. When Steve Perry joined for the 4th album he found that Dunbar's drumming was overly busy - Perry was a drummer himself. Legend has it that when Dunbar was late for a soundcheck, Perry took the sticks and everyone marvelled at how different the band sounded with more straightforward drumming. The writing was on the wall for Dunbar then. His successor Steve Smith was even more jazz rock-weaned but agreed to keep it simple for Journey.

Exactly. Smart move too. I saw that Whitesnake lineup with Vai in Los Angeles. Front row at the Forum (opening for Motley Crue) and they were great. Not quite as acrobatic as Vai and Sheehan (another great show) but still a huge cut above most rock shows of the time. I still remember how crazy it felt to pay $150 for that ticket.  :mrgreen:

He's got a good Ozzy voice; a bit girthier, which is not bad at all.  Those are the driest drums I have ever heard though; get some reverb to relieve that drymouth.

Jack never had a groove concept in a classic sense, his playing could be angular and he took liberties with time and meter (and on fretless: with notes!  :mrgreen: ) like, say, Carlos Santana does in his lead guitar playing. That is just him. The good JAE was no groove monster either (there, I said it), neither was Chris Squire. Robbie Shakespeare or Bernard Edwards they weren't!

Macca grooves! Without ever giving a thought to it I believe. And even though his rhythmic approach is pretty much meat and potatoes, but he swings in everything he does.

Post by: D.M.N. on July 20, 2017, 08:56:18 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't equate groove with being tight necessarily. I've always thought you can play around the groove and still be tight with regards to timing and note placement, which I think this is a pretty good example of. I certainly wouldn't call this loose. I think Uwe's descriptor of angular is the perfect fit for Bruce's playing.
Title: Re: Music videos that feature EB0 to EB4 and SG variant basses...
Post by: Basvarken on July 21, 2017, 12:41:43 AM
Maybe we agree. Depends how you define groove and sloppy.
A good groove -to me- is super tight without ever going against the cadence.
You can play before or after the beat. Push it or be lazy.

But Bruce just trips over a few bars there in all his non groovin busy playing. Like Buddy Miles and he were showing off how many notes they could play within a second.
Overplaying is seldom groovy.  :mrgreen:

I like how the guitarist sit for the entire show, it's Post Rock, there's not much to look at anyway so might as well relax and sit down. I dig the Japanese take on "western style music" always with a quirky twist.

I find it hard to compare the two, Trower is firmly footed in electric blues (rock) a la Hendrix, Clapton has long augmented his blues origins with country-, pop- and singer-songwriter components. Clapton is more eclectic, Trower has his niche in which he excels. Clapton left Cream because he found the power trio confining and wanted to create The Band-type music, Trower left Procol Harum because the music was/became too "unbloozy" for him, he wanted a smaller canvas to paint on where he had more control.

And I prefer Rory Gallagher (for his rawer approach) to both so there!  :mrgreen:

Some good shots of Jim Lea's EB-3. I thought he sent it to John Birch for some work, and Birch went wild and refinished it and modified it way further than Lea requested. Odd then to see it here, with two Birch pickups and the stock mudbucker. Or two EB-3 bridge pickups fitted? The pickup between the cover and the mudbucker isn't stock!

Anywho, that added middle pickup is no EB mini; soemthing else.  Can't quite tell (vid quality and reflections of the stage lights) but it could be Jim Lea.  You know he could have taken the bass to him more than once, and this was just the stage 1 modification.

They look like John Birch mini humbuckers, I just couldn't see the bajillion pole pieces that JB pickups tend to have. It could be down to image degradation or the film it was originally captured on.

Slade had a close working relationship with John Birch, so I wouldn't be surprised if the bass made multiple trips to him. When the bass was refinished white it also lost the mudbucker and gained a bigger batwing pickguard. After the mods the bass was closer to the custom basses John Birch built for Jim, so maybe Jim requested the mudbucker be removed and it was the refinish that was above and beyond the work requested.

Interesting occurence re gallup and his basses, while doing some Uni research Wikipedia told me that He was known for playing a T-bird, which struck me as odd as Ive always seen him with semi's. an Image search and sure enough theres lots pics of him using a bird at gigs, so i went looking for a cool video to put on the Tbird thread, nothing , went through every promo and released live ones and he never uses the bird, even though on loads of the audience vids he seems to use it a lot. I wonder why he would prefer the bird for live use but not want to be seen with it on promo stuff?

He has been using an Epi JCS for quite a while with Sheryl Crow.
And when he was with Lynyrd Skynyrd he (sometimes) played a NR Thunderbird.

Those Rotosound tapes do sound great on the Rivoli. It's a shame we haven't seen anything like these original thinline basses since they were discontinued. Maybe if Billy steers enough interest it's way, we'll see a resurgence of mudbucker glory again.

By "thinline", do you mean the thickness of the body?

This is my 70's Univox which has a fairly thin hollow body...short scale, flats, it's all there and every piece is original. That means the pots are crappy and need to be replaced.

As we all know, this could say Epiphone or Lyle on it as easily as it says Univox - they were made in the same place with the same parts.

I don't see any pic.

Thinline is referring to a thin body, usually meaning one with a center block, like the Gibson Es series guitars.

The EB-2 and Rivoli would also be considered thin lines right? I figured it was easier to call them both the same thing instead of making a distinction between one or the other. Does your Univox have electronics that sound like a Rivoli or EB-2 as well?

Yes, the EB-2/Rivoli is a thinline. IIRC The term thinline was coined by Gibson to differentiate them from their guitars with full depth bodies.

The Univox sounds nothing like an EB-2 or Rivoli.

Sorry for the missing pic - not sure what happened.  The Epi's I have seen must be different, because they all had pickups similar to the Univox.

The 70s Japanese Epis weren't called Rivolis, were they? I know they didn't sound anything like the Kalamazoo Rivolis of the 60s and weren't intended to.

That is quite correct. I didn't know the Rivoli was made in the US. 

Tons of Epis were made in the Matsumoku factory in Japan, and as I noted, they are pretty much parts-interchangeable with Univox and Lyle, as well as some store brands.

The 70s Japanese Epis weren't called Rivolis, were they? I know they didn't sound anything like the Kalamazoo Rivolis of the 60s and weren't intended to.

You may be right about that.  I just Googled "Rivoli bass" and most of them definitely look Gibson-esque, like this, which has different bridge, pickup, switch placement and pot knobs than the Japanese models:

But there's an "Epiphone Rivoli in Cherry" at Reverb that really looks like the Matsumoku product. Bridge, pickups, switch placement and pot knobs are all Japanese style.

Perhaps this is simple confusion about what a Rivoli really is, and the second one is named incorrectly. I think you folks have been discussing the first type, and I was describing the second one.  I certainly would expect them to sound quite different, as they're clearly very different instruments.

I did some Googling and the images I found for both models looked Japanese...then I found this at WIkipedia:

The Epiphone Rivoli was a semi-hollowbody electric bass guitar designed by Gibson and built by Epiphone in Kalamazoo, Michigan from 1959 until 1970. From 1993 until 1999, the model was reissued as a part of the Korean-Japanese Epiphone line.

After Gibson acquired Epiphone in 1957, Gibson installed an Epiphone production line for archtop instruments in its own factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan, using the stock that Gibson acquired in the takeover, with some models taken directly from Gibson (e.g., the Casino and Riviera), other models specifically designed for Epiphone (Newport, Crestwood) or already produced by Epiphone (Emperor, Sheraton,...). In 1959, the Epiphone Rivoli debuted as a sibling to the then one-year-old Gibson EB-2.[1]

Made on the same production line as the EB-2, the Rivoli closely followed the production of the Gibson model; they shared the same body, neck and hardware. Only certain aesthetic aspects differed, such as the headstock and a tortoise-shell plastic pick guard on some examples instead of the black plastic used on the EB-2.

The Rivoli featured an ES-335-style semi-hollow body, made from laminated maple, a short 30.5-inch scale mahogany neck and one large "Sidewinder" humbucking pickup in the neck position. The electronics consisted of a single volume and tone knob, and a "choke-switch" (from 1959 onwards), which enhanced or cut the bass frequencies.

When Gibson decided to move Epiphone production to Japan (Matsumoku) in 1970, production ended for the Rivoli. Its successor, the Epiphone 5120/EA-260, shared very few similarities to the original Rivoli, and had a bolt-on, full-scale maple neck, other hardware and a redesigned body.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epiphone_Rivoli

That seems to explain it - two different series with similar names, but very different in design, production location and electronics.

"designed by Gibson and built by Epiphone in Kalamazoo" isn't accurate. Nothing was built by Epiphone, the company had ceased to exist separately. The Rivoli was the Epi version of an EB-2, nothing more or less.

IIRC Gibson (or CMI, Gibson's parent) bought the whole company for $20,000, including the name, the inventory and parts. The only reason Epi continued to exist as a brand was to market to more dealers without infringing on existing Gibson dealers' territories.

A bit like Marshall and Park?


I've seen those Japanese basses referred to as 'Rivolis' a few times. I figured it was always wishful thinking on the part of the owner or seller. I think the assumption is that the Japanese bass was envisaged as direct replacement for the Rivoli, but I've never seen this verified anywhere.

Post by: Pilgrim on January 10, 2018, 10:39:00 AM
It's pretty clear to me that the name was revived for the second issue, but it has nothing to do with the construction of design of the original Rivolis. They evidently just pasted it onto production line Matsumoku basses.

Based on what I saw online when searching for Rivoli images, it seems to have thoroughly muddied the water, too.  If you're looking for an original style Rivoli, you need to know what you're looking at.
