Quick....bass player for Hourglass....man, I saw him a few weeks ago....man.

Pete.............Carr! Yeah that's his name. Gadsden Alabama a few weeks ago. Though I think Johnny Sandlin was playing bass those nights.

Man, why do they keep changing places so much?

I have a cat named Pippi....

From an HourGlass wiki:

The Hour Glass were a 1960s rhythm and blues band based in Los Angeles, California between 1967 and 1968. Among their members were two future members of the Allman Brothers Band (Duane Allman and his brother Gregg) and three future studio musicians at the world-renowned Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama (Pete Carr, Johnny Sandlin and Paul Hornsby).

Formed from the ashes of two disbanded rival groups that had played the same southern circuit, The Allman Joys (based in Florida) and the Men-its (based in Alabama), the group was booked in early 1967 into a month-long engagement in St. Louis, Missouri, where they met members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, whose manager, Bill McEuen, arranged for them a contract with Liberty Records.

Moving to Los Angeles, they were soon opening for groups like The Doors and Buffalo Springfield and recording their eponymous debut album, full of lighthearted poppy soul that was quite contrary to what the group was performing in various clubs and theatres in California such as the Fillmore West and Troubadour, picked out by the label from a pool of songwriters including Jackson Browne. The album flopped, perhaps due to the fact that the group, aside from Gregg Allman, was sparsely used in the studio.

Onstage, the group rarely performed tracks off of the album, preferring original material by the younger Allman alongside covers of Otis Redding and Yardbirds songs. Over the next few months, however, the group lingered, unable to perform outside of southern California due to label constraints. Eventually losing bassist Mabron McKinney, they soldiered on, performing concerts and recording a second album, Power of Love, which featured bassist Pete Carr. However, like their debut, Power of Love, which also featured the songwriting skills of Gregg Allman and material that fit the group much better than the material on their debut, flopped.

Pulling out one last-ditch effort by leaving Los Angeles to work at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the group recorded a handful of tracks that, for once, showed their full potential in the studio. After these tracks were rejected by the label, the group became dejected and broke up. The group over, Duane and Gregg Allman went to Jacksonville, Florida where they jammed with folk-rockers The 31st of February, featuring drummer Butch Trucks. The others went to do session work in Muscle Shoals.

Liberty Records threatening to sue the group for disbanding, they were given the rights to a solo album by Gregg Allman to keep them from doing so. However, tracks for the album were only issued twenty-five years later when they were released as bonus tracks on the compact disc reissues of the group's two albums. With his brother back in Los Angeles, Duane Allman temporarily joined his fellow bandmates in Muscle Shoals, eventually forming The Allman Brothers Band, enticing his brother back from Los Angeles.

Personnel
Duane Allman - guitars, sitar, vocal
Gregg Allman - vocal, organ, piano, guitar
Paul Hornsby - piano, organ, guitar, vocal
Johnny Sandlin - drums, guitar, gong
Mabron McKinney - bass (1967)
Pete Carr - bass, guitar, vocal (1967-1968)



Well, maybe one of these Bass players knows your dad

(Rod Sterling voice over)

....Imagine if you will a place where all is well. Where folks gather to tell tales and meet up at places called The Fox, The Beacon, the H&H. Imagine if you will people really caring about what song was on the flip side of some obscure album of the 1960s...

Now gather these folks together in one place where they can hug,argue,hug,argue...

(Sorry, got off on a Bluedad/SkyPonyDogBoy tangent!!)

hug....and learn and be peaceful.

That place would be called Islamorada. A small place in the Florida Keys.

But, until then, second best is Hittin The Web...

I miss smokey....

My neighbor who lives across the street is a drummer. He's about 50 and is really quite good. We've played together numerous times, usually for fun, but also on the occasional gig.

"So what?" you might ask. He was telling me about learning to play as an early teen when he lived outside Chicago in the '60s. The older, high school kids that practiced down the street were so good, and he yearned to sit in with them just once. He finally got his chance, and was allowed to play one song - the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction".

The bass player was Berry Oakley.
