Trout, you got it covered! Freaking awesome...troutstudio said:It certainly was quiet for that recording! I'll get that song just right one day. I don't want to play it note for note - I just want to know what he played, note for note
Yeah - that's what I'm sayin'! That's why I started this thread. I've seen SD live, and while it was great - Paul and The Kites was as good or better than them (likely subject to the vibe of the night - we all have good gigs and not so good gigs). They no doubt took the time to get it right - on pretty much everything I have watched them play (several videos).homeby5 said:I'm sitting here stunned
Trout, you guys sounded much better than the real Steely Dan the last time I saw them. Bravo!!!!
That was the Yamaha RA's (very early RC's) that I owned for a while. They were severely trashed (hire kit) but they came up so well. I pulled them completely apart and put them back together without a single part needing replacement, except for one tom arm. And these were drums that had been in continuous hire at a rehearsal space for 30 years. I always thought Yamaha made good drums but those things were awesome. Light too. I sort of wish I had kept them, but I already had a black kit of Pearls and I didn't really love the bass drum. That's when I decided to sell a few kits and buy the Sakae's. Those Yammies sold BIN on eBay in 15 minutes. (I kid you not) Thanks for the nice comments all.APelletier said:It almost looked like those 2 babylon sisters were gonna shake it on the dance floor then they chickened out…. believe me, they'd be shaking it down here in New England! Steely's a staple here but I've heard no one -not even a steely tribute band I saw here - do that song as meticulously as you guys did it! You got a real nice mix and recording that night - very professional and impressive indeed!
I especially liked the videos of Paul playing those sweet Rogers, but what was the Black kit you were playing on the Babylon video? Were those the Pearls I saw on the band's website?
