When 'Barnstorm' was released they did a four night stint at Tulagis On The Hill. We saw two of those shows. Again, small club, great sound. They played the album, in order, and rounded the show with some James Gang songs. I, by then knew the 'Barnstorm' album inside and out, and knew they were performing the record as close as they could. Rocke Grace was there by then, and again I was even more impressed by Joe Vitale's drumming. There, he played keyboards, flute and "finger cymbals", which was a kick. He would stand up at the appropriate time and wait for the cue, then he would put those little "finger cymbals" right next to the over head mic and hit them together (I think, only one hit) and sit back down and continue playing. (These "finger cymbals" are only about 1 1/2" in diameter.
If you listen to those early recordings you can hear many fills that are very sparse, and yet keep the music moving in a very interesting way. So much so that in many ways, they become hooks. Very pleasant to hear.
And so, I bought his book.Read more ›
