LARRY DALE - LET THE DOORBELL RING b/w LET YOUR LOVE RUN TO ME

Reverb- whether provided by an tile echo chamber or thru a spring and transducer- is the single greatest invention that ever hit audio, and the expansive (and sometimes haunting sound) it provides gives space and vibe in thousands of great records.

The first thing that hits me about both sides of this excellent record is the judicious use of reverb and how much power and spook factor it gives these sides; "Let The Doorbell Ring" sounds like midnight, and "Let Your Love Run Over Me" 3 A.M.

Guitarist (and on this record, a singer of great ability) Larry Dale was Texas born, and relocated to New York City where he became a fixture on the blues circuit, eventually ending up in Champion Jack Dupree's band in the late '50's. His guitar work on both sides of this record clearly demonstarte why he was such a big influence on the Stones' Brian Jones- himself no stranger to the power of reverb.

from 1960...
