If I was to make up a list of my favorite guitar players (and, thus, exposing myself to the Internet scourge known as GuitarFan™: You know the type. They blurt out things like “Where’s Slash?!!” and “Dimebag!” — think of it as a kind of Rock ‘n’ Roll Tourette’s) then Steve Cropper would have to be there. Going all the way back to his smokin’ work with Booker T & the MGs, Cropper’s guitar has always had that unique twang that I just love.
On Nudge It Up a Notch, Cropper is joined by Felix Cavaliere, vocalist and B3 player for the Rascals. Meaning, I have to turn this up very loud. P.S.: Yes, I was sucked in by the record player on the cover.
