Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
Track 3 on Side 2 is “Moonshine” 5.01, and is the only song on the LP at all to credit the lead guitarist, Paul Kossoff (here “Rodgers-Kossoff). It is a splendidly mournful piece, and fits in more than any other with the title and general design of the album, containing as it does the phrase “sitting on my tombstone”.
One odd thing about the LP is that it does not contain any lead guitar chords. Paul Kossoff plays brilliant blues licks and rock riffs which perfectly set off the Rodgers/Fraser machine, but there are no chords. It later became apparent that he had somehow managed to learn to play like this without ever doing chords, so he just didn’t know how to do them. Andy Fraser had to teach him the technique for “All Right Now” a couple of years later.
Another odd thing is that Paul Rodgers was just 18 when he did this album, a white guy from the north-east of England, and yet his voice sounded much older, and was blusier than Son House.
