You gotta love those 1984 versions of "Hell in a Bucket" where Bobby's guitar always sounds like a wounded cat...in a good way! It's got everything to do with him leaning on the whammy-bar.

Boy, they were playing well. Jerry's voice was strong and his playing is tasty. The whole band was pumping at full steam!!! Enjoyable stuff.

It's interesting to hear Brent playing B3 on Row Jimmy and the first part of Let It Grow; he almost always played piano tones on those songs.
