Author Notes

GUITAR/BASS: nsw1-6
 
"Fifty-Fifty" is the only track from the successful 1973 LP Over-Nite Sensation that is largely forgotten nowadays and that it represents one of the very few recordings featuring Ricky Lancelotti's distinctive vocals. NSW1-6 said the guitar solo was the hardest he's ever charted and deserves a tripple devil tier rating. The other instruments aren't much easier. Ralph Humphreys gives another stellar performance on drums.

That solo is mental. And the violin solo before it is crazy too...

Thanks for this

this one was delayed a few weeks in order to do justice to the guitar solo. It's really a lot of fun all around

So great.  Cheers!
