I gotta admit LennonRickygirl, that I'm surprised anyone remembers Little Black Egg by the Nightcrawlers. The band I play in will sometimes ask the audience if they can tell us the name of the song and/or the group who originated it. It pretty rare that anyone can answer either of the questions or even one of them. It is an interesting song even though I don't have any idea what its about. ;-)

Does anyone know if "Substitute" by The Who was a RIC 12?
The main guitar on Substitute is an acoustic 12 stringer, a Harmony.

Some of my favourite 12 string work is by The Rutles!!!!
"A Hard Days Rut" has a great hook.

Peace,

Paul

Speaking of when a 12-string gets or got played, I just stumbled across Full Moon Fever (Petty) and Mike Campbell doing a sweet job of covering McGuinn in "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better."

- Kenny, thanks for the "Substitute" info. BTW - Your limited edition is still for sale!

I like The Cars' cover of "Little Black Egg".

Anybody know what kind of 12 string Pete Townshend played on "Who by Numbers?" It sounds like a Ric to me, but I've never known.

Paul McCartney: This One
Paul McCartney: My Brave Face
The Who: I Can't Explain
The Byrds: My Back Pages
The Byrds: Eight Miles High
REM: So. Central Rain (I'm Sorry)
Billy J. Kramer: Bad To Me (solo is a 12, right?)

Not convinced. It certainly SOUNDS like one - all the Dakotas stuff does. Mike Maxfield was lead guitar IIRC. But on TV and on the one occasion I saw them live he always played a Gibson 335. Could it have been a clever amp trick, before most of the effects we know had been invented?

The concept of the Session Soloist (or Session Guitar) just occurred to me, but again I don't think so. Live, they sounded just like the records. You trust my 12-year-old self's memory, don't you?

From "The Beatles Anthology 1" CD, you'll hear George Harrison's Rickenbacker 360/12 on "And I Love Her."

I'm actually not convinced on "Bad To Me" either, because I think I read that it was released in '63, and George Harrison didn't even get his 12 string until Feb 1964, so it's probably something else, as you mentioned.
