Waddy –You’re The One


Waddy –You’re The One/same –Anthem AN201 (1973 US)

Waddy is in fact Waddy Wachtel; long time Warren Zevon right hand man and guitar slinger. This appears to be a one off recording and Waddy played all the instruments himself. In someway the results are very close to a Californian Dave Edmunds with LA contingent members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks helping out on backing vocals. The track is dead tight and nicely compressed with the doubling guitar effects being most effective. A solid and rewarding early 70s rocker...

This is great. I love these on-offs. Reminds me of the Billy Burnette & Jawbone "Just Another Love Song" on A&M. Ever heard THAT one? 45 only as far as I know and I've only seen a mono/stereo 45 of it

Never knowingly heard that one...I see Billy lost an E on the label....
