Wolfgang - 1969 Demo Track

Wolfgang, circa 1969 - L to R: Bryn Haworth, Rick Lancelot, Kevin Kelly, Leland Sklar, Randy “Israel” Zacuto, Warren “Bugs” Pemberton

BeardBassman and I were talking the other day and the subject of Wolfgang came up. He explained to me that their guitar player Randy Zacuto had recently found an old reel-to-reel tape of the group and was having it baked in order to make its content playable.

Well, thanks to the joint forces of Mr. Zacuto and BB you may now listen to one of the Wolfgang songs on that tape: you only have to click on the player below. While the titles of these tracks are undisclosed, it is accurate to say that they constitute a previously unreleased (in no form whatsoever) part of the legendary demo tape the band cut in 1969 at Gerry Goffin's studio (now Larrabee). Line-up is as follows:

Leland Sklar - Bass
Warren “Bugs” Pemberton - Drums
Randy “Israel” Zacuto - Guitar
Bryn Haworth - Guitar
Kevin Kelly - Hammond B3
Rick Lancelot - Vocals
