Thanks Sean...I may be the one who gets on here to field questions about SAC but the whole band really appreciates you and all our fans that have paid attention to what we did as youngsters...It really was a magical time...And we all are very grateful for the extraordinary experience we shared. As much as we complain about the "powers that be" having creative control over us, we did manage to express ourselves on many tracks...This was not true for many of the acts of that time or any time. It may be a bigger problem nowadays.
That guitar solo Ed plays in Heated Love was something I had in my head. When we were recording it Ed took a couple of passes at a solo there when I told him I had a melodic solo in my head...He said; "whenever you have an idea like that PLEASE tell me!"
So I hummed it to him and he loved it. He then added the harmony to it.
Mark played some electric piano glissando with Randy playing marimbas = It was actually very subtle. Thanks for noticing!
: It's so cool that you respond to fans on here,
: George. Thanks so much for the info.
: I hear Wooden Woman and Heated Love as one
: long song - they flow together so perfectly.
: And then Love Me Again starts... It's a
: brilliant sequence of songs on a great
: record. I even listen to most of side one
: And speaking of Heated Love, The
: instrumental breaks on that track are
: remarkable. Ed's guitars, the glissando
: thing (is that a harp?). Pretty magical.
: I agree Love Me Again should have been a
: single. Or Wooden Woman & Heated Love.
: I'm just grateful that you guys persevered
: and made this great music despite the
: forces working against you. Thank you again!

: Hi Sean...
: Love Me Again was written by Lee Freeman and
: Ed King - sung by Lee Freeman - It was one
: of two songs written by them on our third
: album. I loved them both as well as Lee
: Freeman's Wooden Woman. The other song is A
: Million Smiles Away...a gem too!
: Ed did some great double tracked guitar work
: on all three songs.
: Love Me Again has an obvious influence from
: our having just done two Beach Boy's tours
: with The Buffalo Springfield. Ed captured
: that magic that happens between Stephen
: Stills and Neil Young playing off each
: Lee Freeman sang lead on all three of those
: songs. Love Me Again had that Righteous
: Brothers influence.
: The reason it's dubbed a lost gem is because
: the manager, producer and record company
: were hell bent on releasing the more lush,
: commercial and middle of the road stuff as
: singles for radio airplay, such as Barefoot
: in Baltimore and Sea Shell...the latter of
: which was written by John Carter and Tim
: Gilbert who wrote the lyrics to Incense and
: These kinds of mistakes distanced the SAC
: from our core audience.
: The band had no control of the situation.
: The best songs on the third album were the
: ones the band wrote. There were outside
: songs that we were forced to play and sing
: along with a string and brass section
: conducted by George Tipton.
: Completely out of character for the SAC.
: Barefoot got into the Billboard Top 100 but
: I think Love Me Again or A Million Smiles
: Away would have fared better. Just sayin...

: i have been trying to figure out who sang on
: Love Me Again. It's been a favorite of mine
: for years. All-music calls it a "lost
: masterpiece". Aside from that there's
: not much info about it. I would love to know
: more about it.
