A little something in memory of Lee Dorman. — 3 Comments

  1. Many thanks!

    Sometimes – when you've been away from their stuff for quite awhile – it becomes easy to forget just how really great an outstanding band can be when they're really "on it"!!

    Hmm-m-m- gotta go dig out that framed poster, and those old platters, give 'em a spin – or two…

  2. Wow, talk about a little flashback trippin’….My younger son was a drummer in his high school band, and we ended up getting a deal on a full drum set – he’d expressed an interest in learning how to be a real drummer. I (still) have this album, and after he’d worked for a while with the set, I copied this song off the album onto a cassette and gave it to him. He listened to it several times, then assured me there HAD to be two bass drums going – it was impossible to get that effect with just one. I assured him there was only one, so he kept at it, and finally demonstrated that he could play the whole drum part of this song…without a second bass drum. I was proud of him – he WAS (and still is) a real drummer. (Yeah, my wife and I tried to raise both our boys right. Mostly succeeded, too….)
