Stuart,

Fantastic info! Jimmy's a great guy (with a great ear). I'm really glad you were able to get him to take the time to go through all those classic Muscle Shoals-recorded albums.

I had quite the (friendly) debate with Rick Hall about who was playing the lead riff on Clarence's "Road of Love." Rick swore it wasn't Duane. He thought it was Clarence playing the riff all the way through the song. Clarence is a good guitar player, too, but I had suspected it was Duane.

As I said in the book, the version with Duane playing slide was actually a re-record of the song. Clarence had first recorded "Road of Love" in '67. Some folks have said that Duane just overdubbed his slide solo over the original record, but that's not possible since the version with Duane's slide solo is much longer than the original recording. Plus, the original record didn't even have an instrumental break in it. Maybe Clarence played the lead riff throughout the song on the original version and that's what Rick's remembering.

So, did you ever find out if Duane played on any of Percy's records?

Best,
Randy

Stuart,

If you get a chance, might you ask JJ a question-I emailed him a month or so ago but suspect he might not read all of his traffic

Did he ever discuss, or play, any of the Stones work at MS with Duane? I would be curious if he ever expressed any view on Mick Taylor.

Cheers and thanks

Carlos

Thanks Randy,
I never personally sat down with Jimmy to get this information, so I have to pass on credit to a man named Walter who spent the time with him in the process of doing his own research for a book which never came to be. A mutual friend passed the info on to me. I have never met Jimmy personally, but we have spoken on the phone.

Hi Randy, While my knowledge of Duane is limited, according to a friend who is quite knowledgeable, Duane suggested the Buffalo Springfield song Kind Woman to Percy Sledge -- Percy went on to record it, but Duane does not play on it, according to the info I have. It was all part of a five-CD collection of Duane's various session gigs which this fellow Duane-o-phile shared YEARS ago (before the advent of the website I'm quite sure), and in turn I'd be glad to share this also. All the songs Stuart listed above are on it.

I didn't mean to send ithe previous response yet, but anyway, as far as Percy Sledge goes, according to Jackie Avery (who would be a great interview by the way) Duane supposedly played guitar on a track for a Percy Sledge album called "Soul Africa" which was only released in South Africa. I had begun to think the album never really existed until I finally found a copy on Gemm. It was recorded as a movie soundtrack, which was only shown in Africa (Swaziland I think) in 1971 and some of the tracks were recorded at the Capricorn studios while others were recorded live in Africa during one of Percy's tours. According to Paul Hornsby, he remembers some footage being filmed at Capricorn, and since interracial bands weren't accepted at the time in Africa, an all black band was filmed at Capricorn more or less lip syncing to the music including Jaimoe on drums! Avery wrote the track "Sister Soul" which is a beautiful songs and swore Duane played lead on it, but to my ear there is no real lead guitar and I don't hear any Duane unless he played rhythm. Nonetheless, it is fantastic album and wortht the search for all the tracks not found anywhere else, very soulful and funky, not the typical ballads crooned by Percy at all. A couple older hits were included in the soundtrack as well. The film is not found on file with any archive, I checked, but must exist out there somewhere. Paul Hornsby has the original reel to reels but nothing to play them on he says. So, did DUane play on this? Not sure. He could have been involved at some level, but he is not audible to me. There is a fantastic live in the studio version of "Knock on Wood" that rips and some some laid back soulful tracks like "Swazi Lady" and "Sister Soul" and some real funk closer to James Brown like "Yeah Baby" and "Soul Fire" that have Percy sounding more like a Voodoo preacher than a balladeer. I haven't seen these tracks anywhere else.

You're welcome. I found the information interesting as well. I was intrigued to see that Duane was playing acoustic guitar in the studio on some of the tracks which were double tracked. I don't know anything about his acoustic guitars, so if someone has any info on which type of acoustics Duane played, it would be interesting info as well.

thanks for the info krauses - liner notes on those early atlantic lp's were terrible (i remember at least one that listed duane as "david allman"). do you know is that all of the information walter got from jimmy or did he get any more? i always wondered on what songs duane played on "new routes".

Well I do know that Duane overdubbed his parts on New Routes down at Criteria, while the bulk of the album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, so it was probably just Duane and Tom Dowd there in Miami. Jimmy could still have worked his magic ear on that album too but I don't have specific info on that album anyway. As far as I know it was just "Dirty Old Man" "Sweep around your own back door" "Mr. Bojangles" and "Marley Purt Drive" but he could possibly have been playing rhythm on others. But then again, Cornell Dupree was credited on guitar as well. Lulu also recorded an album at Criteria studios, but as far as I know Duane is not on it. He was around at the time the album was made however. I don't have any other info from Jimmy on any other albums except the Doris Duke album which he was not involved with. What is interesting about that is that the tracks Jimmy says Duane played on for the Doris Duke album are not the same ones that Swamp Dogg says Duane played on. I can dig out that info later.

Which Ronnie Hawkins Albums, did Duane play on?

1) Ronnie Hawkins (self titled debut?)
2) Ronnie Hawkins (The Hawk?)

Are these currently on CD and are hard to find or are they on vinyl only?

Thanks

J

Folks, I have a "hyper-hypothetical" question. Suppose yours truly, moi, physically possessed about a bunch of of the lps that Duane did session work on....I have always wanted to do something like this: Put a "strongbox" together and send them to say so and so, who might enjoy them and then pass them on to so and so, etc., etc. I guess ultimately that would mean giving them up from person to person with no exchange of money, but purely just for the joy of listening.....Yes, it would mean eventually that the vinyl would be useless after a while, but heck, if the phucking majors and bullshiate copyright laws would prevent me from copying them for others, but not from giving them to others and on and on....

hmmmmmm, I wonder if that idea has even been considered?
