Wheels of Fire, and Live Cream Vols. 1 and 2.

Clapton shot his load at The Fillmore West with Crossroads. He never played anything as hot as that again. He stuck his neck out big-time on that couple solos, and the audience got rewarded in spades.

If you remember correctly, one album of the double album "Wheels of Fire" was live, the other was in the studio. One entire side of the live album was a harmonica solo (brushes by Ginger Baker) by Jack Bruce called "Traintime", and the long drum solo called "Toad".

There was a mini-Toad on the Fresh Cream album. Not exactly my favorite drummer, but still a trailblazer with that band during that time frame.

George,
Rush has a cd out now called Feedback (I think). It includes a cover of Crossroads. The nerve of some folks. I actually like their version of Mr. Soul.
On the subject of the M-500, mine has served me very well over the years and in my younger, dumber daze, I abused it some might say. Untill I got on this forum I had no idea there was such a thing as a Carver Service Dept.

Thank goodness for thermal protection.

Mr. Soul? You sir, are old. Buffalo Springfield if memory serves. Was that a great musical time to be alive or what?

There are few bands I dislike more than Rush, and I've never owned one of their albums.

Astonishing! If you can get past your reasoning for just 40 minutes try Permanent Waves.

But then again I cannot shut the system down fast enough when anything Springsteen comes on. Bleeee-yuck!

Rhino,

I have been subjected to Rush countless times. Durations much longer than 40 minutes. Experience, not blind prejudice, prevents me from owning any Rush material. You can finish being astonished now and go back to whatever your normal state of mind is.

That's how I feel about Guns and Roses. Axel Rose has got to be THE ultimate worst singer of all time. If any song of theirs comes on the radio, it's an instant change. I could tolerate the music aspect of the band, but he has the most annoying voice ever. Slash is a great guitarist, too. I grew up in the hair band era (I'm 40 now) and played in bands from about the time I was 15 to 30 and listen to a lot of hard rock still. If only you could delete his voice out of the songs! lol

What's wrong Jim Dandy didn't come to the rescue? Saw them here in Bucyrus at the Mad Bull opening for BTO. They kicked ass, late Randy Bachman came on stage playing his guitar with and drum stick with a tee-shirt proclaiming BTO as "1/2 ton of Rock&Roll".

And there were no blind listening tests during the Carver Amp Challenge in Santa Fe. It was straightforward listening to the M1.0 and the Conrad- Johnson Premier Fives. It wasn't a tube vs transistor thing either. The challenge was he could make his amp sound like ANY amp out there, in 48 hours or less. It was Stereophile that chose the target amp. If you recall, after only 24 hours alone in the hotel room, he felt he had achieved his goal and called the Stereophile guys in for a listen. If you recall, they listened and came away of the opinion "They sound exactly alike.... but your amp has a much cleaner and tighter low end." If you recall, he sent them back home, went to work muddying up the low end, called them back the next day, and THAT is when the Stereophile guys threw in the towel.


Not quite accurate

.......and from Stereofile :


[quote]Carver caused a stir in the industry in the mid-1980s when he challenged two high-end audio magazines to give him any audio amplifier at any price, and he’d duplicate its sound in one of his lower cost (and usually much more powerful) designs. Two magazines took him up on the challenge.

First, The Audio Critic chose a Mark Levinson ML-2 which Bob acoustically copied (transfer function duplication) and sold as his M1.5t amplifier (the “tâ€
