Aretha Franklin Live At The Fillmore West 1971. Bernard say's "You Can't Go Wrong" Soundwise and Feelwise this was so much fun to record
Aretha Franklin, Until You Come Back To Me 1973 the vocals and drums were speaking to each other throughout. I was answering her before she finished asking the question. That's how close things were.
Hall and Oates, Abandoned Luncheonette 1973. The biggest hit they ever had is on this album. The ballad called "She's Gone"
Cat Stevens, Foreigner 1973. Bernard say's that he is super proud of that because the writing and vocals are superb. But putting the album together, it still became a drum record to me. My drumming is equal to the vocals and the writing on this album. That's how I feel.
