All Time Jerry Studio Solos

All Time Jerry Studio Solos

Postby Crazy 9.5 Fingers » Sat May 24, 2008 8:40 am

I have always been pretty partial to the solo he lays down on the studio version of "Cats Under The Stars".

Seems to have all of the Jerry strengths, story telling, crescendo style melody development, and just flat out bad ass grit.

At 4:06 into the song he lays down just the tastiest little riff, pretty simple, but just captures the whole vibe of the tune.

Any other faves out there from Jerry in the studio?

I recall reading somewhere that he used an MXR Blue Box on this tune.

Agreed! I love the last Vocal verse of I Know Its A Sin from the Compliments disc. But I Knooo-oooo-ooowww its a siii-IIIN. With the harmonica harmonizing with his voice. Gives me chills everytime.

I think the studio solo on Crazy Fingers is absolutely sublime.
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...

I'll second Playing in the Band off of Ace.

Head and shoulders above anything else insofar as a studio cut goes. A real sleeper on that album that a LOT of people have never heard.

The others that I know of, and in no particular order:

Foolish Heart
Eyes of the World

Obviously very slim pickings, not much meat on the bone.

I would say that sounds about right.

I agree with Cats Under the Stars. Great solo - classic jerry.

There's a whole bunch on the JGB Reflections album that I really like:

Tore Up Over You
Catfish John
I'll take a melody - the end solo (starting at ~7:30)Might as Well

There's a studio jam of Hully Gully/Rockin' Pneumonia on the Outtakes CD of the All Good Things boxset that is pretty sweet, too.
