Wow! awseome one of Buddy's best. Love the cymbal work and left hand early on. Looks like early 70's blue/olive 3plys. A lot of poeple say he sounded best on Slingerlands but this sounds really good. But then I am biased. Is that a regular Supraphonic 5 x 14 or something else?There's a part in this WSS solo where he misses on a move he tried to make and the camera is on his face, one of the few times where I appreciated that, then anger flashes across his face as it doesn't happen, then he goes for it again and ups the power and speed. The look in his eyes has always stayed with me. The intensity and concentration, he's deep in his head. It's what it takes to get to that level of playing and running a band.
I think the snare on this recording sounds great, the whole set sounds very powerful. And I think Bonzo borrowed a lot from Buddy in his solos.
