Mr. Melvin Seals - Hammond B3 Tour de Force
    #34152 - 05/19/08 09:19 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)




I figure this guy's musical style could be appreciated by many a stoner out there.
So here's an introduction, for those of you who may be unfamiliar. :spliff:


He plays most often these days with the JGB, the same band with
which he played alongside Jerry Garcia from 1980 'til Jerry's death in '95.


Some samples I taped from a couple shows I hit this year. :smile2:
(I have almost three hours of footage, but wanted to keep this concise :tongue2:)

This first one is just to warm you up, the second one might knock ya down! :sun:

[ P.S. If you haven't already set your default settings, log into YouTube and
make sure you're set to watch all videos in high quality - cause it's much better! ]

Melvin with one of his backup singers, Mary Holland:



One of my favorite aspects of Melvin's style is his incorporation of the gospel feel.
You guys have any lesser known unique jam masters out there I should know about?

High quality? You mean what we get without logging into YouTube is less than high quality?

I love the sound of Hammond B3s :rockon:... I think that's what makes the Brent-era :gd_icon: so endearing to me.

Awesome videos, I need to start getting into JGB.

Well not necessarily, but you may have to manually click to request the higher res version.  People (including myself) have been fed up with the poor resolution of You Tube videos, and finally it looks like Google is answering these cries by offering dual format (higher and lower res) for the newer uploads.  Notice the relatively obscure link below the video window:





Also see:

From that last link, I'm going to add a &fmt=18 to the end of my you tube videos above, so that they'll hopefully load the higher res version by default! :woot:

Edit: Well the appended URL trick didn't seem to make the embedded videos higher quality, unfortunately. :crying:
But if you go to the actual You Tube page for the video you can select to view it in high quality.
