Just been doing some further reading, it appears that in the "early 70s" (not year specific) jer was only using a wah?
I'm reading conflicting reports - was it a colorsound or a vox?

Can someone clarify?

Twin pre> Mac 2300> 16x-20x JBL D-120's

the photo record of his wahs is pretty scant but in '71-73 it was a ColorSound; in July 74 he is seen with a Morley; and in Oct 74 it appears to be an all-black crybaby type - possibly Thomas Organ.

Thanks for the info, do you have a photo of the colorsound?

Also, guitar-wise, has it been established what date wolf debuted? I know it was delivered in may 73, but have seen a photo of alligator being played in june 73...

I saw him playing it on 9/15/73 in Providence. I've read somewhere that that was the 1st show. I'm not 100% sure though.

Wolf debuted at 9/5/73 S.S. Bay Belle Garcia+Saunders show, and the subsequent GD tour

Was Wolf used in the "Wake Of the Flood" sessions, or was Alligator, or both ?

I'm interested in this too... WOTF sessions ran 8/4 - 9/7/73... My guess would be that album may have been it's first use. I'll have to listen closer

Especially interested in which guitar was used in "Eyes..", "Mississippi...", and "Let It Grow".

In the liner notes in the Beyond Description boxset, the engineer who worked on Wake Of The Flood talks about how Jerry's "new Alembic guitar" was delivered to the studio during the sessions. He makes some comment about how he can't believe today that he actually had the nerve to open the case and play the guitar a bit before Jerry had even seen it.

So I'm guessing Wolf is on at least some, if not all of Wake Of The Flood.
