Krypt Kickers vs Backbeats

The Kript Kickers 1966

From Left to Right: Allan Mason – Drummer | George Christensen – Keyboard | Jimmy Smith – Lead Guitar | Bob Orsell – Bass | Tim Yaquinto – Rhythm Guitar. Thanks to Lead Guitar player, Jimmy Smith for spending an insane amount of hours in the editing studio. This audio was recorded using a 2 track 1/4″ reel to reel tape player.

No EQ or effects, two microphones placed in the rear of the room, facing the stage. It’s rough to hear, that’s why it’s better to listen.

Farewell my friend.

It was the last REACH Radio Show, and we had lost our friend, pal and bass player of more than 50 years. Host, Allan Mason decided to leave the show with a farewell tribute to his friend. Both Paul and Larry have passed, 2015 and 2017 respectively.

Backbeats 1963.

From front to back: Allan Mason – Drummer | Larry Davis – Rhythm Guitar | Lee Norman – Lead Guitar | Bob Orsell – Bass Guitar. This audio was recorded in Lee’s music store during a practice session in 1982. 

Tim Yaquinto Production

Tim wanted to preserve this video from an old VHS tape. He was selling a lot of tapes back then. Tim left us in February of 2019.
