Emitt Rhodes / S-T
1970 Dunhill

Emitt Rhodes does all instruments, vocals, arrangements 

the verlaines, live at windsor castle--more ramshackle and punkier than their studio records would suggest. great nz band.

off broadway, on--sort of a cheap trick manque, with a charismatic singer and a really hot guitar player. not a ton of lyrical depth, but these songs stayed with me some 30 years after i first heard 'em.

@bslon: AND Emitt wrote all the songs on the album, and did the recording in his home studio in Hawthorne, engineering it himself on a 4-trk. machine. When I recorded with Emitt in 1997 (he was producing a single song for a solo artist I was involved with.), he still had the Gibson ES335 pictured on the back cover, and the pump organ seen inside the gatefold.

A very talented guy, but one doomed to a miserable life, thanks in part to the brutal, vicious business practices of Dunhill Records (Lou Adler himself, I believe.). That misery had by 1997 turned Emitt into a very bitter, mean---cruel, even---man. His critiquing of the bassists playing had the guy in tears. Fortunately I escaped his wrath, as my playing met with his approval.

I saw further evidence of Emitt’s musical talent when he suggested a more "advanced" version of the tambourine part I was dubbing over my drumset part. His suggested part was really, really cool (and sophisticated), one I myself would never have thought of. Performing it perfectly was right at the top of my musical abilities ;-) . Luckily, I got it on the first take. Emitt liked to work fast.
