And I prefer Trower to Clapton!  :)

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:

Cool version of A Forest with Gallup rocking the Rivoli reissue; manual echo on the outro - I always assumed he used a delay there.  Cooler still that it's an all black hollowbody lineup.

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)

I only realized now: That is David Kiswiney playing that modern day EB(-13). Having played Grabbers and Victory basses before, he's obviously the faithful Gibson type. Or perhaps living in Nashville as he does, he gets them for free.  :)

Sweet SB tone and good footwork in this live to air performance by Chicano Batman (starts at the 50 min mark; not the whole song/performance):

And here again, but this time rocking a mudbucker - think it's and EB0 but hard to tell:

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)

This I like! The mannered quirkiness paired with a pop sense reminds me of the Super Furry Animals which I love.











Just ordered the CD of Chicano Batman, danke Jake!

Re the core subject: That even sounds like a mudbucker, indirect signal and all.
