Remembering and The singles
are compilations. The tracks are recorded with the same musicians: Ritchie
Blackmore (guitar), Ken Lundgren (guitar), Chas Hodges (bass), Mick Underwood
A guitar feast! Originally, the album included 8 tracks. Produced by Derek Lawrence, due to contractual problems, the musicians credits were written with nicknames (as you can read above). But it was later remastered and reissued on CD under the name The green bullfrog sessions, now with 3 unreleased tracks.Earl Jordan (vocals) (aka Jordan)
Ritchie Blackmore (guitar) (aka Boots)
Albert Lee (guitar) (aka Pinta)
Big Jim Sullivan (guitar) (aka Boss)
Rod Alexander (guitar) (aka Vicar)
Chas Hodges (bass) (aka Sleepy)
Tony Ashton (keyboards) (aka Bevy)
Matthew Fisher (keyboards) (aka Sorry)
Ian Paice (drums) (aka Speedy)
But, Albert was disatisfied with the final results, so the album wasn't released. Several years later, he re-recorded it with his new American companions (he was part of Emmylou Harris's Hot Band), but a couple of the original tracks remain here. The 'new' musicians were the Hot Band: the sweet Emmylou Harris (vocals), the great Ricky Skaggs (vocals, fiddle), Rodney Crowell (vocals), Hank De Vito (steel guitar), Emory Gordy (bass), Glen D. Hardin (piano), John Ware (drums). Plus: Don Everly (vocals, Albert was the guitarist in his band for a while), Pat Donaldson (bass), Buddy Emmons (steel guitar), Jerome Jumonville (horns), Mickey Raphael (harmonica), Bruce Gary (drums), Gerry Conway (drums).Albert Lee (guitar)
J.D. Maness (steel guitar)
Dave Peacock (bass)
Chas Hodges (piano)
Pete Gavin (drums)
I've read about an album called Black Claw
and Country Fever, but I don't have it, so I don't know the contents.
It's strange, as Black Claw was the name of a Chas band, and Country Fever
was the name for a band led by Albert Lee during 1968-69. So, maybe it
has unreleased tracks from these bands. Can anybody help here? B.J. Cole
also appears in the album.
Paul Williams (vocals)
Micky Moody (guitar, vocals)
Andy Pyle (bass)
Jean Roussel (keyboards)
Ron Berg (drums)
