Our brother Sean put me on to this website: www.nrps.net. In this site if you go to the gallery you will find many pictures with Alembic guitars and basses. There is even a great picture of a single cutaway Alembic bass. Matt are you reading this?? I think these guys were very plugged into the Alembic thing early on. Check out the stage gear too. I am only guessing that those tie dyed cabs are Alembic. I LOVE that magic era. Ron needs to work on that time machine for me.

Yeah, I like them too! Brings back lots of memories. It made me bust out their old stuff and give it a listen. They used to play often here in New Orleans. For some reason that sort of music was big here. Allman bros, country rock et al. We had a concert hall here called A Warehouse. It used to have these type of acts that would play until sunrise. Really! I had some great times there. I find it hard to believe that it's been that many years ago!
I love the sound of the bass on those early recordings. That is the sound I strive for when I play my country gigs. With my 72 Alembic I get that EXACT sound. Good stuff.
