CD featuring the Sixties super group The Former Members, with David Bennett Cohen (piano, vocals) and Bruce Barthol (bass vocals), both founding members of Country Joe & the Fish; Roy Blumenfeld, (drums, vocals), from Al Kooper's Blues project, and Greg Douglass (guitar, vocals), of the Steve Miller Band, Greg Kihn, Van Morrison, and many other great bands.
Greg's best solo work to date! A mix of Greg's amazing eclectic styles. Most of the tunes were co-written with the brilliant singer-songwriter Michael Muldoon. Add drummer Larry Grano and bassist James East and you've got a gem that's been lifetime in the making. Don't believe me? Listen to the reviewers:
VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE- “A fantastic cover of the Flamin’ Groovies’ “Shake Some Action” featuring Gregory Douglass (a successful similarly named singer/songwriter) and a great whammy workout joins an impressive set of collaborations between the guitarist, now based in San Diego, and singer Michael Muldoon. On electric, acoustic, lead, and rhythm, Douglass’ taste and tone shine. But on slide, he belongs in the ranks of the very best.”
SAN DIEGO TROUBADOUR- “Now, nearly four decades after the release of the monster smash that dominated the airwaves in ’77, Douglass is showing some love again with the release of Flight of the Golden Dragon. A 12-track bonanza, the album is a testament to the power of Douglass’ craft as a songwriter and guitar gunslinger.”
Cover art by Greg's friend, the great artist, William Stout, a loving cover of the Flaming Groovies' "Shake Some Action"; it gets no better! https://youtu.be/G7MG8ydVNzE
