What's the story? Did Duane record four songs with Cher: For What It's Worth; Cry Like a Baby; (Sittin' on the) Dock of the Bay; Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You?

I have them, and there's a subdued guitarist who might be Duane, playing a session but not really putting his heart into it. Or it could be someone else.

Any ideas?

My modest research (which included asking David Hood) indicates that Duane did not play on "3614 Jackson Highway"

this has been debated for years. even though duane might not have been at the muscle shoals sessions tom dowd was known to take tapes to miami's criteria studios for further over dubs (ex: lulu's new routes) so anything is possible. the 2 best people i can think to ask are probably bongorandy or krauses.

Not Duane. It's Eddie Hinton, who wasn't too shabby himself. Believe me, I really wanted to find out that Duane had played on that album just for the sheer irony of it all, but Jimmy Johnson (the other guitar player on the sessions) told me he was 99% sure that Duane wasn't on it. Jimmy left the door open just a crack, telling me, "I wasn't at the studio 24 hours a day, so I can't say I know for an absolute fact that he didn't play on the record," but the truth is Jimmy played on every track, and the only other guitarist in the room with him was Eddie Hinton, so I'm pretty confident we can put this one to rest.

If you're wanting some Cher irony, though, I did dig up a good one while I was writing "Skydog." Turns out that "Ramblin' Man" peaked at # 2 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The single that kept it out of the top spot was "Half-Breed."

Hey, Randy, thanks for the clarification. It would've been too weird having Cher in my collection -- on these songs, especially "Dock of the Bay," she manages to completely erase any feeling from them.

I find it even more ironic that Gregg married her anyway, considering the way she blocked "Ramblin' Man" Apparently love isn't only blind, it's deaf as well.

This is a good one.
