Hey E., was also impressed by the smooth and silky slide playing of Jeremy Spencer -even Pete Townshend seemed to dig it!My copy arrives on Tuesday.
So Vito filled in the role usually reserved for guys like G.E.Smith. Now I’ll definitely have to key in on Vito when I watch the disc.Hey E., was also impressed by the smooth and silky slide playing of Jeremy Spencer -even Pete Townshend seemed to dig it!
I liked the way the mix is handled (even though mostly all up front) instruments wide to the sides per the stage position and also center positions. It also has a nice punchy sound to it. At one point Mick's bass drum hits seemed to really jump out into the room with bombastic authority. It was also nice and filling having Zak Starkey (Ringo's son) providing additional drumming with Mick, which is also mixed well (Mick mostly on the left & Zak on the right.) But for me Rick Vito held the whole thing together, in a guitar period style respectfulness; where as the other guitarists were just kinda doing their own usual styles IMO.
