Album Notes
NOTHIN' was recorded on June 5th (my birthday) in 1966. We used a 3 trk. machine and some of the best gear that money could buy. Lead guitarist Roger Mayne played a Cherry 1964 1/2 Gibson ES-335 through a Fender Super Reverb. Rhythm Guitarist Glynn Bell used a Gretch Tenneseean through a Fender Showman. Bass player John Read played a Gibson Bass with Flat-Wound strings & drummer Robin Boers played a brand new set of Gretch Drums. No Pedals! No gizmos! Roger achieved his lead-sound by using a mixture of regular electric guitar strings & banjo strings.(at the time there were no Light-Gauge strings available!) We ignored the VU Meters & played at the same volume that we used on-stage. The tune was recorded "Live" off the floor with me singing in a separate cubicle. In and out of the Studio in 4 1/2 hours, including the final mix. That was just the way things were. The whole process cost us $330.00! Since then, the song has travelled around the world and back, and made it on to countless best-of-the-sixties lists. It stands the test of time..................
