Re: [fearnwhiskey] Fillmore Byrds review
- So, you think you can bring up Clarence and not have me drop in
my two cents? Wrong again. Clarence White is the most publicly
underrated guitarist of the 20th century. Revolutionized
bluegrass guitar playing and acoustic flatpicking, then
revolutionized electric guitar playing in . How many other
guitarists can say that? Zero, that's how many.
Wall, what the hell is going on? Long time no talk. Love the
Byrds @ Fillmore West review -
http://www.twangzine.com/rev/rev-byrds.html Yep, it appears
that you, me, and a few others are the chief functionaries in
the Cult of Clarence. Have you head the Tuff & Stringy disc yet?
It was put out by Ace in London and covers CW's session work
from 1966-68. There's 26 tracks in all, including two by the
electrified New Kentucky Colonels which is probably some of
Clarence's earliest recorded work on the electric. They also put
out that Guilbeau & Parsons disc last year which has CW's
pull-string godhead all over it. BTW, according to Gene Parsons
in the liner notes of Tuff & Stringy, he worked on the original
B-Bender while Clarence was at the Sweetheart of the Rodeo
