Drummer Sandy Nelson can hum a harmonica with the best, but when it comes to drumming Nelson should be compared with guys with names like "Krupa" and "Buddy" or "Ginger."

It's pretty darn difficult for a drummer to lead a band to the top of pop, rock, blues, R&B or even classical charts. While the Doobie Brothers certainly are a prime example of one which can, "The Drummer" still sat in the background while parading before him were the more portable, nubile guitar players.

If you're a drummer who wants prime space, well, it's kinda difficult to secure.

It's kind of odd, when one thinks about it: The necessity of a beat -- which drums (percussion) have best delivered over time -- is by-and-large paramount to a composition's success. But banished to the stage's back are the guys who carry it.

Sandy Nelson not only attempted to change the architecture of a band's physical self, he failed at it, too.

Oh, Nelson deservedly sat at the stage's front a time or two, but such arrangement lasted about as long, as well; a time or two.

Still, "Let There Be Drums" is as masterful as it is forceful. This one tune, the most popular, top-10 charter on the album, probably best personifies Nelson's premiere ability of sitting within the semi-circle of skins.

One wouldn't be surprised to learn "Quite a Beat" was an ad-hoc recording with an ad-hoc name but it is cryptically descriptive of a tune which has one of the, um, er, "most unusual" guitar accompaniments ever undertaken and recorded. Or, perhaps, an accomplished guitarist can regularly make such sounds but isn't capable of pairing it with any other instrument.
