On The Jimmy Reed Highway. Windows down, shades on my face, wind in my hair, radio up, and a cold (legal) beverage in my hand!

One of my Main Guys - Ace Frehley!
Goldtop (In The TEXAS Groove!)
Lookin' back today. A lot to think about...
If you like this one, cool. If not, then I'll blame it on Ace. I'm reading his book right now and in it he talks about taking in the King Tut Exhibit way back when on its US museum tour.
As you may have already gathered from my earlier post this morning of King Tut, I've deemed it Intellectual Monday here at Chateau Goldtop. To that end, I'm watching a rerun of "Roadhouse" on the tube. The house band at The Double Deuce, The Jeff Healey Band!
TT-PT1@CG=ZZ (Translation: Tone Tuesday Part One at Chateau Goldtop - ZZ Top ). Weird Up; Fear Not!
TT-PT2@CG=D (Diesel.) I like the overall tone of this one. The reverb on the guitar, and the mix when the bass and the rest of the band joins in with the riff. Cool in my book. 'We blew a gasket on The Grapevine.' Been there and done that. I was in a Peterbilt instead of a Rambler, but it was still a gigantic PIA!
P.S. - This is also a little salute to bretwomack and Mesa. Thanks for the smiles.
TT-PT3@CG=PL&MM (Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald). I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a fan of Pop. Or at least what I consider good Pop. When this first came out, I thought 'what an odd combination'. But after one listen I thought 'what a great combination!'. I love the way their voices intertwine. Powerful and unique voices working well together. No screeching or howling as in so many songs today. Great tones playing off of each other.
TT-PT4@CG=GK&P (Gladys Knight & The Pips) Tone. TONE. To me, this song has great tone in every instrument, every voice, the mix, the works. What a song! Lyrics for adults, a drumbeat out of every cowboys and indians chase scene you've ever watched; strong, lush voices; in the pocket bass; a little rhythm guitar semi-hiding in there; sweet horns... Strong, powerful, warm ANALOG TONE.
This has been running through my mind all night long. What that means I have no idea, but I somehow feel compelled to send it your way.
Happy Wednesday, and Happy Thanksgiving Eve Everybody!
Whenever I think of Fall I think of this song. To me, this lady is an amazing songwriter, and has been for many, many years.
Oh, Mama! Today I got my hands on the new Celebration Day by Led Zeppelin. So many formats and combinations to keep up with, but I have the CDs and a DVD. I know what I'll be doing tomorrow!
(This video is from a different gig, but still a nice one)
Brothers, our troubles are locked in each others arms and you better pray that they never find you.
