    Thanks again Melvin!

    Did you use blended signals for all of your overdrive/fuzz tones, or did you use them on their own?

    Every time I listen to your work with Rollins Band, I'm reminded of how indebted I am to you for tonal inspiration. Great stuff and thanks for tipping us off on the details.:)

    Nice work Melvin! I'm a big fan of your work with Rollins Band. It must have been awesome playing with Sim.

    Just want to say that's one of my favorite albums of the 90s, along with Weight as well. That lineup really maximized what you can do with just guitar, bass, drums, and vocals.
