(Gary and Glenn recording the rhythm section to Holy Man [1995]). What a team! The guys cut the rhythm tracks on this song live and in one take, too! Believe it or not, Glenn hadn't played this number since 1974 or 75, and so he'd had to spend a couple of minutes before this session holed up in the control booth with Gary Ferguson listening to the original version off of the 'Stormbringer' album a few times before going into the recording chamber, plugging in, and whipping this one out. Looking back on it, I remember how impressed we were, not only with Glenn, but with Gary as well, at how professional he was, building and then playing his parts with speed and efficiency. He was amazing really.
