On the first side, they do suggest the mellowness of the Dickey Betts-led Brothers and Sisters, particularly on the lovely "Melissa," and this stands in direct contrast with the monumental live cuts that dominate the album.
They're at the best on the punchier covers of "One Way Out" and "Trouble No More," both proof of the group's exceptional talents as a roadhouse blues-rock band, but Duane does get his needed showcase on "Mountain Jam," a sprawling minute jam that may feature a lot of great playing, but is certainly a little hard for anyone outside of diehards to sit through. Apart from that cut, the record showcases the Allmans at their peak, and it's hard not to feel sad as the acoustic guitars of "Little Martha" conclude the record, since this tribute isn't just heartfelt, it offers proof of Duane Allman's immense talents and contribution to the band.
The Marketts The Surfing Scene Biography by Richie Unterberger The Marketts are sometimes classified as a surf group because of their hit instrumental "Out of Limits," one of the last big surf singles, which made 3 in early In reality, they were something of an all-purpose contemporary instrumental group with elements of surf, rock, pop, and even easy listening. And they were not really a group, but a fluid collection of Los Angeles session musicians, working under the direction of producer Joe Saraceno.
Saraceno was the principal man behind the concept of the Marketts, although he himself did not play or arrange anything on their records, or even write all of the material. He was sharp enough to latch onto the surf craze in for one of the earliest instrumental surf hits, "Surfer's Stomp," which made the Top Forty on Liberty in While working at Liberty, he also produced the Ventures for a time, and the influence of the Ventures' cleanly-picked guitar lines is very evident on "Out of Limits" and some other Marketts tracks.
With their blend of surfy guitar leads, film soundtrack horns, and spooky organ, the Marketts' sound is best described not as surf, but as rock-influenced instrumental pop with a futuristic by early '60s standards touch. Many of their songs seemed to be doing their best to evoke space travel and science fiction flicks, sometimes with the help of what sounds like a theremin.
They could be said to have filled the void between surf music and space age pop, which is not a criticism; their music is not terribly substantial, but it is fun, and has a pretty good groove.
After "Out of Limits," the Marketts would enter the Top Twenty one more time with the "Batman Theme" in early , and release records as late as Saraceno, in addition to his work with the Marketts and the Ventures, would also produce Bobby Vee, the Sunshine Company, Martin Denny, and many other acts.

Blues Saraceno. Review by Vincent Jeffries Recalling Brian May, Blues Saraceno continued to improve his liquid lead tone and vibrant phrasing on Hairpick, the shredder's finest solo disc.
His third and final recording for Guitar Recordings, Saraceno reveals a profound dedication to his instrument on this release. In a bold songwriting move, the guitarist shifts his musical focus away from the upbeat boogie mastered more than a decade earlier by Eddie Van Halen and copied all too frequently by second-rate guitar instrumentalists too prevail ant on Never Look Back and Plaid.
While never quite achieving the melodicism of his genre's premiere phrase-maker Joe Satriani, Saraceno continues his progress as a writer on Hairpick. The standout "Chewing on Crayons" features Saraceno really letting go. With some of his fastest, out-of-control soloing, the track ironically represents a mature step away from the musician's somewhat self-conscious, restrained oeuvre of solos.
Other expressive highlights include "Stinky Kitty" and "Fat Paddin. Soon after unleashing Hairpick, Saraceno abandoned instrumental rock and joined Poison for an ill-fated tenure in the circus world of major-label recording.
The musician claims he "never wanted to be a guitar hero" and had accomplished what he set out to do instrumentally. After a record was scrapped by Poison's label, Saraceno left the group, began working session gigs, and assembled his own band, Transmission OK. Blues Saraceno Plaid Review by Vincent Jeffries After Never Look Back established the teenaged Blues Saraceno as one of the premier players in the claustrophobic world of virtuoso rock, musicians awed by the guitarist's articulate soloing weren't let down by this follow-up.
On Plaid, Saraceno's second disc for Guitar Recordings, the artist makes many technical strides, improving his instrumental and home recording chops greatly, surpassing his debut in every facet.
On "Last Train Out" -- perhaps Saraceno's career-best track -- the guitarist displays an even more refined tone and rhythmic aptitude. Other highlights like "A Lighter Shade of Plaid" and "The Scratch" display the shredder's continued development of double-stop soloing, tight rhythms, and smart phrasing.
Several boogie-down exercises in sassy riffing mixed with modern hyper blues soloing are also included. More dynamic and more colorful, Plaid improves greatly upon the solid musicianship and overall listenability of Saraceno's debut.
