    Here's a quick groove thang I did earlier this week. I used the BIAS plug-in with the Dumble preset on guitar, and a Fender Tweed preset with 12" bass speakers on the bass track.



    The music is from some instrumental 45 I heard as a kid of 11 years, but for the life of me have no recollection of the name, artist or how the rest of the song went.

    I'm guessing it came out between 1965 to 1970 at the latest. Somehow I recreated this much from memory.

    Anyone wanna try identifying it?

    This one sounds really familiar.

    A later Shadows of Knight single circa 1969, perhaps? This was after the original “Gloria” era band dissolved, and the singer hooked up with the Kasenetz/Katz bubblegum production team…


    Part of that single reminds me of The Showstoppers’ tune, “Ain’t Nothing But A House Party”, that J.Geils later covered…

    The beginning riff sounds like Black Is Black but not the rest of it:

    Well played. We always crack the case, but usually not that quickly.

    Well, I struck out on the last couple, and I used to do that sort of thing for a living.

    Yeah, that's what I was hearing in my head, thanks. Definitely a different tune, just know this one better.
