Synopsis

Product Description
Nashville native Mac Gayden got many gigs as a studio musician appearing on albums by Bob Dylan and J.J. Cale (among others). He created the famous "slide-wah" guitar technique, playing slide guitar through a wah-wah pedal - made famous by J.J. Cale's "Crazy Mama."

During the late 60's, he wrote and performed with Area Code 615, a group of the same studio musicians who recorded on Bob Dylan's "Blonde On Blonde" LP. After two albums, that band splintered and went on to form Barefoot Jerry. Mac Gayden remained with them for the first album, "Southern Delight," but the group went on to perform many more critically acclaimed albums.

CD Reviews

Order Mac Tonight!
Kevin M. Holden | Boone, NC | 12/11/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album by Mac Gayden is a real find, crammed full of bluesy rock nuggets. Perhaps best known as the writer of the seventies pop hit "Everlasting Love" (which was covered recently by U2 for the "Forces of Nature" soundtrack), Mac Gayden delivers a winner here. His unique style of playing slide guitar with a "wah-wah" pedal highlights a cool range of original tunes and a kickin' version of JJ Cale's "Crazy Mama." If you know who Mac is, you won't be disappointed. If you've never heard of him, take a chance and order this one."
