Από τις πιο συναισθηματικές στιγμές ενός δημιουργού που έμεινε περιώνυμος ως μέγας …κυνικός. Σε κάποια σημεία το “The Packard Goose” είναι ανατριχιαστικό.

One of the most sentimental moments of a musician who was well known as a great …cynic. Some parts of “The Packard Goose” are electrifying [for lack of a better word].

Είναι σπάνιες οι φορές που λέξη “μνημειώδης” ακούγεται ακριβής. Μια από αυτές είναι αυτή, η live εκτέλεση του “The Whipping Post”.

Στις κιθάρες οι Duane Allman, Dickey Betts.

It’s very rare that the word “monumental” sounds precise. One such case is this, the live performance of “The Whipping Post”.
