Fleetwood Mac- Spare Me a Little- Record Plant Sausalito 12-74

I can admit now that, not until she was officially credited on "Future Games" and "Bare Trees", were we sure that the singer of “Spare Me a Little” was female! Simply astounding that the late Christine (Perfect) McVie was lending her songwriting, distinctive voice, organ, and piano sound to Fleetwood Mac here, and continued over almost forty of the next fifty years.

Jerry Lee Lewis- Lucille- Memphis mid-’80s

Calling veteran bass player David Cochran and rousing drummer Chad Cromwell out of bed, Jerry Lee Lewis met the two bewildered musicians for the first time and laid down this incredible version of "Lucille" in one take, straight off the studio floor.

Tom Cochrane- Lunatic Fringe- Dallas 1992

From its release in 1979 on the Red Rider album As Far as Siam ,"Lunatic Fringe " was always a popular song on North American rock radio . However , in a post-9/11 world , Tom Cochrane's lyrics are now even more chilling . This performance in a Dallas Mexican restaurant- January 1989 . No stage , no P.A. , no monitors , just Corona beer & the radio feeding back . That's a lot of intense music just by two very talented guys .-Redbeard
