That Jeff Beck Bolero conjured up an old memory of a '60s band from Ann Arbor Michigan called SRC. They covered that on their Milestones album
(which I still have in a box somewhere). Their version transitions out of a rock version of In The Hall of the Mountain King. Like a lot of albums
from that era, "made loud to be played loud".
Ironically SRC was much more popular in the UK than they ever were here in the states.
Damn, I sound like Casey Kasem.
And now... a long distance dedication to myself with two tunes from the much under appreciated Ramsey Lewis. The first, "In Crowd" sounds a lot
like Traffic's "Glad" and in fact the first time I heard "Glad" I thought of Ramsey and "In Crowd". The second is Ramsey's version of the
classic War song, "Slippin' Into Darkness". Sheer awesomeness. It doesn't get any better than Ramsey Lewis. We're not worthy.
Checked out SRC and i can diggit
Thanks for the additions to this thread yeahright. I am somewhat adrift for now and only able to check in periodically. I miss me ATS.
Casey Kasem eh? Oh yea, an iconic voice and source of tunes in my young life. Man we are old, no? Or should I say 'aged' like fine wine
A little sample with some perspective.
ETA: really like the Slipping Into Darkness cut.

Bill Chase made a quadrophonic album that, when listened to on the four required speakers for quad sound, would literally make you dizzy. This guy
could flat play a trumpet. Died way too young, in a plane crash. "Open Up Wide" a great tune.
Vince Guaraldi, maybe best known for his instrumental work on the Charlie Brown/Peanuts cartoons, here with one of his best, Cast your Fate to the
Wind. Very evocative for me, which all my favorite instrumentals are.
Cool, had not heard that one, love the surfer sound guitar. A friend turned me onto a website and I thought this session was incredible!! The site
is TRI studios link
And the song is Evolve
