Even though Roman says otherwise, i'm convinced it's Frank. Just listen to the style.

No it's not, definitely Jeff playing all guitars on this track. Not the same style, though he kinda has the same fuzzy guitar sound.

The liner notes on the original LP read . . . . 'Craig Tarwater : Guitars'
and also 'Jeff Simmons: Electric bass, piano, organ, accordion & vocals'.

the extremely organic, grinding ...and backwards at a few junctures...guitar is the excellent work of Craig Tarwater.

in fact this track was destined to be an instrumental.....along with "I'm in the music business".

however when i went to Herb with the completed album ..he was heard to remark:

"If i want instrumentals...i'll listen to Mantovani !! get back in the ##$%%!!! studio!!

but i never went back to Mystic ...in fact i was so broke and things looked bleak...so i bought a pack of Winstons..

and went to Frank's pad and played him the record...at some point i got up enough courage to blurt out:

"Frank can i borrow $100 bucks?"..he filled his cheeks with Winston smoke and replied:

"Gail make Jeff some spagetti !"

i guess he had enjoyed what he heard because he grabbed his guitar and showed me "Lucille HMMMU.

and said" i'll help you finish this album and you can sing my song".

We went to Whitney Studios in Burbank...cut Lucille and Raye (why he liked that i'll never know it makes me cringe)

plus we on the spot wrote the lyrics to "Wino Man" (for which Craig kinda got "Shemped")

and changed my instr, to "Music Biz"

Craig and Frank were and still are two of the LA heavyweights on guitar..

Frank only plays on Lucille and the aforementioned cringer.

thanks for the kind welcome....gratified that someone was interested enough to pose the question...

which in turn got me on this site...

released " Blue Universe " in 2006 which features an instrumental version of "Lucille HMMMU.

and that IS me on guitar.

with world-wide demand at an all time low...i forge ahead with a new pop-psych record

co produced by Howard Kaylan...comes out in April.

cheers,

jeff
