I know on the debut album Duane is in the left side speaker (on my system) and Dickey the right side throughout the album but on Idelwild South their positions seem to be reversed, at least on some songs. I always thought Duane played most the leads on Hoochie Coochie Man but now I think it's Dickey. Still, Duane's leads on Please Call Home are on the same side as the Dickey's (?) on HCM. Does anyone have the definitive info on this topic? Thanks.

I don't think Dickey played on Please Call Home. I think the acoustic is Duane and the lead guitar is Duane.

Peach Nut is correct. Dickey didn't play on Please Call Home. That track was recorded in New York City with Joel Doren producing and Dickey didn't like the studio and refused to record. If I remember correctly, I think it was because there were no windows. The rest of Idlewild South was recorded later and produced by Tom Dowd. Much of it was recorded in Criteria in Miami but Capricorn in Macon was also used. This was due to the band having to record and run a few times in late 1969 and the first half of 1970. They did 307 shows in 1970. I believe the Duane/Dickey left/right think got accidentally reversed at Macon.

Dickey does play the fills on Hoochie Coochie Man. It was like that live back then too and I think Dickey and Berry Oakley were already doing that arrangement and Don't Want You No More from the fist album in The Second Coming before the ABB formed.

Dickey almost didn't play on the first album because the studio didn't have windows with Adrian Barber producing. I think Duane placed someone Dickey trusted nearby who could see outside and Dickey trusted Duane so he is on the first record.

Jaimoe didn't play on Whipping Post on the first album and plays only percussion on all but two tracks on the second album. Listen to Liz Reed carefully and notice Jaimoe is only on congas.

And if you are wondering, the chant on Black Hearted Woman is ALL band members with Oakley laughing at the end of the chant. And that is everyone in the band singing back up and doing the hand claps on Revival. I used to think that was just Dickey and Berry due to a Circus Magazine story but I got to ask Dickey in 1986 and he said " I know it doesn't sound like it but that's all of us, me,Gregg, Duane, Butch, Jaimoe and Berry. I remember we kept cracking up and had to do it over and over. " Later Butch said they had the same problem on Black Hearted Woman and Oakley laughed at the end of the last take and we gave up and used it. Said they were afraid to do that chant live.

In his book that was Gregg's recollection as it applies to Dreams -- that they were about to record it, Dickey got uncomfortable because of the no windows or whatever & picked up & left, "& that is when we recorded Dreams -- all the guitar work you hear on Dreams is Duane's" is bro. Gregg's recollection in My Cross To Bear
I love the ABB
