Found this guy and his music through a lucky find in the $1 record section. Such a score

charles carrico

I bought it in 1958 - still have it - Billy Butler Guitar, Clifford Scott Tenor Sax

@Jud Ruhl Yah, right. Except when we paid a dollar for a 45 back then it was equal to more than $10 in current money.

That's what they used to sell for new.


Slap-tongue at the end of those two-note sax licks. You don't hear that too often. I saw a woman playing baritone sax at a gig doing that, and, as I'm a sax player, I asked her at the end how it was done. "I could show you," she said, "but I'd have to put my tongue in your mouth to do it."

Great Break Song before the next set and last of the evening. Wish I had a buck for each time I played it


@Tom McKinnon In the key of C, we played it as C7#9, F7, C7#9 C7#9, F7, F7, C7#9,A7, D7b9, G7, C7#9, C7#9

Same here. Always a disagreement in the bands about what the rhythm guitarist is doing with the chords, seems her is holing the 1 seventh chord when the bass goes to the 4


Brings back my high school memories when it came on the scene.
