Answer To Last Week's Trivia Question:
Q: Who played the slide guitar on the classic Eric Clapton hit Layla?
A: Duane Allman! Both Slau and Mark Rufino had some valuable follow up to this. They referred to a documentary on Tom Dowd called Tom Dowd: The Language Of Music. It's an absolutely fascinating glimpse into the life of a talented and influential engineer and producer.
One of the interesting things in the movie is where he plays the original multitrack master from the Layla session and he solos Dunae’s slide and the piano. It’s so exciting to hear the raw material out of context. Slau and Mark both say. "If you haven't seen this, run (don't walk) to the store and pick up a copy." Better yet, just click here to get one online!
