I hadn't heard this for years when it suddenly started playing on my walkman. Mega hit for Arlo Guthrie, son of the legendary Woody.
Such a great story and based on fact. It was the protest song of the time.

My feeling is that it totally takes away the singers ability to express emotion.
Adele is a great example, she flat out refuses to use or have it applied to her voice at any stage of recording or mixing.
That's because she's an actual singer. Now, I'm not a fan of her music. Not my thing that's all, but she can sing. Sadly, when it comes to contemporary commercial music, she's in the minority.

Has the Big Lebowski effect worn off yet?
Not yet. Not sure it ever will.
Love it. Played Ramble Tamble for my teen son and he asked if they were real instruments, and I said yeah, and that that is how the singer really sounds. He don't believe me, skeptical bugga.
Can't blame him when you listen to what's around these days. Are there any decent male vocalists around now?

Wonderful.
Duane's time with Derek Dominos was a great collaboration also. I dig Anyday and the blistering version of Hendrik's Little Wing.
Apparently they heard that Hendrix had died while they were making the album and did it as a tribute to Jimi. Sadly, only a year later Duane was gone too.

That Dominos album is one of the best double albums ever. Has there ever been a better guitar combo than Duane Allman and Eric Clapton?

I picked up Layla and Assorted decades ago on a hunch, beautiful cover and heavy wrapping that I couldn't take off without buying it.

The hunch paid off. It's a desert island album. Duane more than held his own and provided a further dimension. Really fcukin great. Then that led me to the A Brothers.

Btw, what a drop dead gorgeous lass was Patty Boyd!

"Epic" lyrics. Something lost in translation along the way maybe.
Treat as MA15 but is OK if the kiddies or your work mates don't understand Japanese.
Or can read.
