Well, the Thunderbird video thread is ticking over nicely so I thought why not give the other classic shapes a spin...

Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

 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.

So a band of yank GIs stationed in Germany invented communal fretboard tapping. Who'd have thought.

Two from The Fortunes live with Rod Allen (RIP), thumbstyle on a Rivoli.

IMHO You've Got Your Troubles sounds much better without the horns that were on the studio version.
