THE WOODEN GLASS featuring BILLY WOOTEN - In The Rain / Day Dreaming
On that night in 1972, the funk gods must have descended on a small club in Indianapolis called the 19th Hole Night Club. Fifty years have passed since that miraculous live performance. Finally, "In The Rain" has been released as the 50th Anniversary Edition at 45RPM.
This is the last 50th title of the 45rpm vinyl marathon to commemorate P-Vine's 45th anniversary.
The intimate performance space that set the scene for Billy Wooten Live at The 19th Hole Night Club lives on in this 7” single from P-VINE, celebrating 50 years since the recording of The Wooden Glass. Billy Wooten’s trademark vibraphone would make its way through venues of all shapes and sizes in his native Indianapolis, and the active crowd chatter between tracks highlights a working musician early in his career. However, as Wooten’s playing cuts through the crowd on album highlight and a-side “In The Rain”, the band feel at one with the elements. Wooten’s mallets dispense delightful high tones, organs sound warm and cleansing while guitars offset with acid stabs of thunder. B-side “Day Dreaming” keeps the band rolling with a latin groove that rounds off the 50 year anniversary celebration in style.
