Does anyone have the original of "What is Life?"?. My ears may be deceiving me but the 2000 remastered release seems to have pushed the slide guitar way way back. I recall when it first came out the slide parts were a lot more obvious, or, is it just age?

I have it. I haven't listened to it since the remaster came out though... Although I'm pretty sure, the remaster is just a remaster of the exact same mix. Of course, they could've used the wrong master. - But sometimes remastering can make something sound quite different, even when it is the same. I'll check it out when I get home and let you know what I think.

I just received the remastered version last week. I was listening to it the other day in the truck and it jumped out at me that that part is mixed down on the remaster. I expected to hear it and it was faint in the background.

Yes, I still have the record....I'll check it out later and let you know.....
I actually thought the same thing about the Living In The Material World remaster box that just came out regarding the version of "Deep Blue".....one of my favorite George slide parts *(assuming it is him).....but upon second listening, it sounded OK....

This topic reminds me of a question I've sometimes
wondered .... if Duane and George ever had a chance
to meet each other ..... either through Eric or Delaney ?
Anyone know ?

According to TONY BRAMWELL, The Beatles school buddy and later road manager, (just happy to carry their equipment ), They have not met, but George liked his work on Layla. (about his wife Patty), and Of course we know that Duane was a Beatles fan.

Absolutely! Of course he's famous for Hey Jude, but he also played an interesting cover of Obla Di Obla Da on Arthur Conley's "More Sweet Soul" album -- also the instrumental version of Norwegian Wood he and Gregg did as a demo.

Duane played on such a variety of sessions & songs -- like Born To Be Wild (from Wicked Wilson's Hey Jude album); Light My Fire, and Harper Valley PTA (from "The Dynamic Clarence Carter); Hey Joe (from King Curtis's "Instant Groove"); Mr. Bojangles (from Lulu's "New Routes") Feel So Bad (Otis Rush, "Mourning in the Morning", Gregg later did this on his live album); Who Do You Love ("Ronnie Hawkins") etc etc.

Thanks for that tidbit .... I'm sure they would have had a lot to talk
about had they met. Duane meteored so fast ....he would have eventually
played with all the masters.

Norwegian Wood appears on one of the Hour Glass albums. The Allman Joys also did Nowhere Man.

RE: George Harrison, Delaney Bramlett and Duane Allman, check out this thread
http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&file=v iewthread&tid=52565

Apparently, GH did not immediately know the Layla album was about Patty, as per the GH book.

RE: remasters, I am sorely tempted to believe that recent releases are messing up the original mixes. I used to have the What is Life single and wore out it so much, it turned white. The slide was a lot more present in the mix...but alas not so in the 2000 release.

Not sure if the "tapes" are worn....

Deep Bue was recorded on 4-5 July 71 in Los Angeles, with GH on guitar and dobro. He picked up the Dobro from Dave Bromberg, and influenced by Bromberg, and Dylan. The emotional playing was because he created the song in response to his mother's passing.

Ok I just got done listening to Dr. Ebbetts version of this. The slide is not as prominent as you remember.
For you who do not know. Dr. Ebbett tranferred Beatles vinyl catolog to cd. They sound so much better than the official releases.

I listened to it again and again. It stands out but still not as prominent as the other instruments.

Funny I just surfed in and seen this thread. My wife was cleaning out the hutch today. (lol ya cleaning up) Anyway she tossed this mag in the trash and I recovered it. Great shape. The day after George passed I was drunk playing "while my guitar gently weeps" the live version with Clapton! Trying to get her to dance a tribute..... No wonder she tossed it in the trash. But being a Beatles fan she is I'm surprised
