jim gordon - why does love have to be so sad - live version.
I think he used his ride for most of the song ," Low Spark of High heeled Boys " .

A few come to mind. I like the ride sound Bonham got on “What Is And What Should Never Be”. Also love Ringo‘s ride/bell sound at the end of both “Hey Jude” and ”Let It Be”, and any of Jim Gordon’s recordings.

I mostly don't notice good cymbal sounds on non-jazz records, I just notice when they contribute to the vibe at all:

Black Dog is a good one, especially for the bell sound:

Also Roger Hawkins on Chain of Fools:

Father O'Blivion, bell sound again:

Rehumanize Yourself:

OK, maybe the ride cymbal is in retreat but there were some magic moments.

My all time favorite - sounds like each note is being lifted out of the cymbal by the stick. Roger Hawkins.


& John Densmore made tasty use of his ride:

(Don't remember this music video)

And Charlie Watts

The Temptations- Ain’t too proud beg
Paul Wertico’s Paiste Flat Rides on any Pat Methany tune
Steve Smith’s ride bell on the outro of Any way you want it
Steve Gadd’s ride on the Chick Corea(rip) album Friends
