Big Daddy Teach Me Tonight After You've Gone So Rare Sleep The Battle of New Orleans Lo Golondrina The Swallow Yakety Sax Sleepwalk For a more comprehensive overview of this era of his career, the Bear Family Yakety Sax CD is the way to go, but either way, these recordings are worth having for the original recording of Yakety Sax alone.
BradOlsonFeb 2, Location: Sun Valley, Calif. I'm still enjoying the one I got from you with his version of "Unchained Melody". Larry NaramoreFeb 2, Location: N. Beechwood Dr. The 8-track version of this was my first exposure to Boots. Fun story- In the very early 70's, both my uncle and my father had a copy of this 8 track and they both played the hell out them. Card parties, pool parties, summer backyard picnics, family vacations, etc. My dad's copy got played so much, the glue on the labels gave way and became a faceless 8 track.
Many years later, not knowing who the artist was no labelI was trying to backtrack and find the artist and album that had "Big Daddy" on it. I only found out about 10 years ago who it actually was.
I knew of Boots Randolph but never associated him with some of these versions. I found the Camden LP and it all fell together. It's tiring to be humming a song and not know who the artist is, what the song title is or how to find out. Still love this album, today. RIP Boots. BradOlsonFeb 3, Here is the cover of the CD issue of this compilation. BradOlsonFeb 5, I happen to prefer the original LP cover which was used on all the analog releases of the album. Now for a digitally restored version of the LP front cover done by me, here it is.
Location: Fonthill, Ontario. Dennis MetzFeb 5, I agree. Location: East TN. The Monument LP output of Boots is superb as a rule. You should seek out those. They are audiophile demo material available for cheap. I love Boots! McLoverFeb 5, I have a part of the Monument LP output as well. Location: Massachusetts, USA. HenryflowrFeb 6, Maritime - Stéphane Belin - Parole De GuitareFeb 6, After Youve Gone - Boots Randolph - The Yakin Sax Man will really give your system a chance to shine.
Stereo LP discs preferred. McLoverFeb 7, I After Youve Gone - Boots Randolph - The Yakin Sax Man yet to get More Yakety Sax as well. BradOlsonFeb 7, Location: Chicago. Thread revival. Recently acquired this old LP, and discovered what a classic it is. Great performances and wide stereo sound, although eliminating the vocal chorus group on some of the tracks might have been an improvement. Sleep Walk Bongo Band So Rare Battle of New Orleans are all in heavy rotation on my sound system.
Both are wonderful. Not to mention the sax parts that Boots contributed to Reconsider Baby by Elvis -- way cool. HominyRhodesAug 22, HominyRhodes likes this. BradOlsonAug 23, The Grouch - Green Day - Nimrod. (Vinyl, LP, Album, LP, Album) think a lot of people, myself included, learned of Boots through good ole Benny Hill.
His sax solo on Elvis "Reconsider Baby" is one of the finest examples of sax playing I have ever heard. I wish someone would release a compilation of his session work. Something similar was done for Duane Allman. Or has something been released? Boots' session work shined! HominyRhodesAug 23, You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content.
