I thought we would revisit some Edgar Winter Group, Frankenstein.

 

They local radio played this today and I had to see how loud the Harmon Kardon would go.

Loud.

 

The Edgar Winter Group – Frankenstein (HD) Live 1973 at Old Grey Whistle Test

 

Enjoy.

    It was called Frankenstein because the master tape had over 500 splices in it to capture all of the various tracks, overdubs, phase ins and a number of unique techniques that Edgar used to produce it.

    The fact that the song is a concise, coherent work is nothing short of genius.

    from wiki:

    In live performances of the song, Edgar Winter further pioneered the advancement of the synthesizer as a lead instrument by becoming the first person ever to strap a keyboard instrument around his neck, giving him the on-stage mobility and audience interaction of guitar players. The song topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for a week starting in May 1973, and sold over one million copies. It was knocked from the #1 spot by Paul McCartney’s “My Love”. In Canada it fared equally well, reaching #1 on the RPM 100 Top Singles Chart the following month,[1] the same month that saw it peak at #18 in the UK.[2]

    The song’s title, coined by the band’s drummer Chuck Ruff, derives from the fact that the original recording of the song was much longer than the final version, as the band would often deviate from the arrangement into less structured jams. The track required numerous edits to shorten it. The end result was pieced together from many different sections of recording tape using a razor blade and splicing tape. Winter frequently refers to the appropriateness of the name also in relation to its “monster-like, lumbering beat”. (One riff was first used by Winter in the song “Hung Up”, on his jazz-oriented first album Entrance. He later tried a variation on it, “Martians” on the Standing on Rock album.)

    Winter played many of the instruments on the track, including keyboards, saxophone and timbales. As the release’s only instrumental cut, the song was not initially intended to be on the album, and was only included on a whim as a last-minute addition. It was originally released as the B-side to “Hangin’ Around”, but the two were soon reversed by the label when disc jockeys nationwide in the USA as well as in the Canada were inundated with phone calls and realized this was the hit. The song features a “double” drum solo, with Ruff on drums and Winter on percussion. In fact, the working title of the song was “The Double Drum Solo”.[3] The single was one of the few No. 1 chart records to include an extended passage featuring the ARP 2600 synthesizer.

    The song was actually performed three years previously when Edgar was playing with his older brother Johnny Winter at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970. This rare recording was recently released as one of several live bonus tracks included in the two disc Deluxe Edition CD of Johnny Winter’s Second Winter. Rolling Stone lists it as one of the top 25 best rock instrumentals.[4]

    @ coldwarrior:
    The first time I saw the Edgar Winter Group live was on a TV program called In Concert. Rick Derringer was awesome. His performance was an early form of what Angus Young would eventually do. Non stop rocking with a maniacal type of performance. Of course this was stuff from the early 70′s. And of course Edgar playing everything.

    I heard this rendition of where the name Old Grey Whistle Test (which is a really odd name—hey British;obscure) came from and after reading the Wiki version it matches.

    …the programme[sic-heh] derived its name from a Tin Pan Alley phrase from years before. When they got the first pressing of a record they would play it to people they called the old greys—doormen in grey suits. The songs they could remember and whistle, having heard it just once or twice, had passed the old grey whistle test.

    Here’s a pretty serious dope song. Some great slide work by Mick Taylor.

    Now for something completly different.

    THE THE THE weirdest concert I ever went to was these guys in SF on New Years 1980 (I think). I do not know what I actually saw. Well I saw it. I heard it. But I still cannot quite describe it. Yoko Ono has nothing on these folks:

    That song was my introduction to the roots of blues. I found out that my favorite r&r songs were covers, often without attribution, and I also found that I liked the originals better. Willie Dixon was a God.

    Just the tone of the song is enough to convince you not to try it.

    I am seeing a lot of people on a nod in the trains and on the street, black & white, all over 40. 2 or 3 years with out a job can do that to you.

    Eubie Blake said that he first heard the term “Rock And Roll” in the late 1800s cat houses. It was a piano playing style designed to keep the johns moving through the services.

    Dixon was a very rare talent, a tough guy…he alone willed those old guys to play…he forced the ‘Chicago blues’ on them and they responded…Willy Dixon is huge

    I mentioned up above that Zep in their reunion concert finally gave credit to where many of their songs came from. I had no idea In My Time Of Dying was originally recorded in 1927 by Blind Willie Johnson.
