From there, we got an offer to go to Seattle, Washington for three weeks We played at a club down by the University in Seattle called the Old Man - Wakefield (3) - The Lost Warthog Tapes (CD). That gig ended with us getting fired for being a non-union band in a union town. We sued the owner and lost A couple of years later we played at that club again with much better results Shortly after the Seattle mess we decided to move from Pueblo to the northern part of the state, Boulder or Fort Collins or Denver.
We went to Denver and Boulder and did four auditions on the same day. One at "La Pitcheau", a 3. We actually got hired at all four clubs!! Barry had great ideas but no money. When we called Al's office and wanted to be put straight through to Al instead of being on hold for a long time, we'd tell the secretary that we were Barry and we would be put through immediately. Of course, it pissed Al off to no end. About this Old Man - Wakefield (3) - The Lost Warthog Tapes (CD), Steve quit the band and we auditioned several people but decided that we were better off just having one of other guys in the band fill in on keyboard when we needed it.
Fred Arthur is best known for recording radio and TV commercials but he did do some classical music. I think we were the first rock band to record there, maybe the only one. The tapes from that session have not been found. We met Brent Lewis around this time. He was from San Francisco and did an act called "Putee". He played congas and bongos and had an immense sound system.
We toured with Brent for several months. He would play our breaks. Traveling with Brent was a guy named Paul Zamucen. Paul had been a trap drummer in several bands in the San Francisco area. He also played congas. We played several Santana songs and asked him to sit in on them.
From then on he sang, played congas, timbales and tympanis. It was around this time that we did a recording session at a low budget studio at the comer ot about 42nd and Sheridan in Denver called "Warthog Studio". Many of the songs on this CD were recorded there. It was on one ot the Seattle trips that we did a recording at a studio associated with the agent that helped book the club dates up there.
That session started after we got through playing about am and went all night. We finished the basic tracks and over dubs in about 8 hours. In late 72 Ron left the band.
We changed managers and moved our base of operations to Seattle, Washington. During our time in Seattle we played a club north of down town called "The Aquarius". In 73, we took a job in Anchorage.
Three months starting in September through December. It was quite an adventure. What happened in those three months could fill a book and most of the stories are almost unbelievable, but we were there and we know they are true.
After that we went back to Seattle and did several Showcases for agents and record people. We got a couple of bites from one of the Showcases and decided to go to Old Man - Wakefield (3) - The Lost Warthog Tapes (CD) and do a Showcase there. We sent our manager there for several months lining up-agents, record people and management companies to come to the show. There was a mix up and the place was double booked for that weekend so we made a deal with the other band.
We would do one night and they would do the other. IsraBox - Music is Life! This psychedelic rock band from Pueblo, Colorado formed in and continued to play all over the Northwest until their breakup in The band recorded a concept album for Warthog Studios in Denver from Gear Fab exhumes yet another group of recordings from the early '70s that have never officially seen release before: Another story of a band who had the potential, played with all the right people, and aroused label interest Shelter tried to sign itbut ultimately got lost somewhere down the fuzzy memory hole of the era.
Moving its center of operations back and forth between its Colorado home and Washington state, Wakefield never quite took that last step beyond its bar band origins despite performing throughout the west including a showcase at L.
While there is some of the typical early-'70s excess to be heard on this archival find -- pondering where the band was going for heavy, silly mystical lyrics, a tendency to mistake an interesting riff for a song and length for mood, jamming several minutes past the point of redundancy -- there are also some tremendously imaginative stretches on the album and even entire songs that are worth the time it takes to listen, not often the case with "lost" recordings from completely obscure and unknown entities.
The Old Man - Wakefield (3) - The Lost Warthog Tapes (CD) sound existed somewhere between psychedelia numerous outstanding guitar and organ solosacid rock, hard rock, Old Man - Wakefield (3) - The Lost Warthog Tapes (CD), and soul-rock, best-exemplified on the pair of opening tracks, "Bring It On," with its impressive Chicago-style horn arrangements, jazzy saxophone solo, and Latin percussive touches, and the edgy "Something Is Coming," an explosion of harmony.
