    Ah, Etta James, a true treasure.
    Here's one by Renee Olstead, a young 'un who actually has Etta's OK to perform "At Last"(Etta's particular about who she likes performing her signature song). She specializes in old jazz and blues tunes.

    Nice find. I liked Charlie Chin's voice the best. I never got past their song "Good Old Rock 'n' Roll" because of their country style. Jazz guitar was my formal training, but rock and roll was my first love. What did you think of our cover? It's on the studio cuts. I think it holds up well considering that we were just a power trio.

    What happens when you mix western, swing, and boogie?



    Then jazz it up, and flavor it with a touch of Loudon Wainwright and Martin Mull?

    I didn't know he played that one- more of a blues number, but nice.

    This is from the same rockpalast show (german tv)- straight ahead, hard driving (off comes the jacket), rock and roll.

    The video's not that old (and horribly out of sync), and the players are as old as dirt. And yet, there's still some life left as they find a groove about halfway in, with Beck's slide and some classic riffs, and Stewart hitting a just fine gravely falsetto.

    From the Beat Club, 1968.

    The bass player is working hard, and everyone is rewarded, except America's parents, who tried to protect their daughters from such things.



    My favorite 90's rock & roll band. Check out the singer's Bye Bye Birdie ending.

    My SG is a standard- no whammy bar.

    I saw Mountain at Purdue in '70 or '71. There was a small stage set up between two dorms- about 75 people tops watching the show- stupid hoosiers! I gave a lecture supporting drug deregulation/legalization and the damn students almost lynched me right then and there. God, I hated that school!

    Anyways, about 8 years later we opened for Leslie West in Milwaukee...no, not the Arena, but at a private party. One of my favorite rock guitarists.

    I liked it! I read that Bowe did both parts, probably by running the song back at half speed, adding the gnome voice, and then mastering at full speed. We did this when we were kids- singing over the album at 16 1/3 rpm, taping it all at 3 3/4 ips and playing it back at 7 1/2, changing the lyrics in spots, resulting in x-rated chipmunk songs.

    Another sizzling live performance.

    What really happened, according to later accounts, was that his drummer, John French (whose stage name was Drumbo), transcribed and arranged music as Mr. Van Vliet whistled, sang or played it on the piano, and the band learned the wobbly, intricately arranged songs through Mr. French’s transcriptions.

    What old garage bands didn't play this song?


    As Dave Barry once said,"If a guitar fell down the stairs, it would play Gloria on the way down."

    To the best of my knowledge, I've never heard this version, only the cover by the Shadows of Knight:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_rBSeKBEf4

    (and I promise I'll get around to sending a copy that we recorded in '66 or '67).

    This might explain why this wasn't played in our area- from Wiki-

    Shadows of Knight single released in December 1965 (later included in the album Gloria). Reached number 10 in 1966, topping the original in the U.S. only in areas where Them's version could not be played, because it contained the words, "She comes to my room". Some radio stations objected to this, most notably Chicago's station WLS. The Chicago-based band Shadows of Knight's version replaced this line with "She calls out my name."
