Wyker and Court Pickett's vocals are also good. Many of the tunes have a trippy, psychedelic flavour to them, and the album is very enjoyable. This is not your average seventies Southern Rock album, but it has many good musical moments, especially the guitar and horn playing. Definitely worth a listen. Gunn" John Wyker - 4.
Too, few were aware that its songwriter, John Wyker, was hardly a newcomer to the business, but had been a behind-the-scenes player of note in the Southern rock scene for more than a decade. Wyker had barely entered his teens when he first got into the music business in the late s, hanging around Spar Music in Florence, "the only recording studio [then] in the state of Alabama as far as I know.
He mainly knows about running a truck stop, and had never been in the business. These two girls have volunteered to drive me up there.
I'm gonna go up there and talk a speculation deal for some recording time. Anybody that wants to play on it, LP, come on up. By the time you get there, I'll have a deal made. But we go up there, and I catch the guy, Ron Ballew, who owned Widget Studios, walking out of the studio about midnight. Lou Mullenix, an incredible drummer that died way too young, and about 15 guitar players. I mean, he couldn't have thrown us out of the studio. We had literally just taken over by force.
But he said, 'Give me a minute. So we started a publishing company together and recorded for two or three days, cut four songs—'Motorcycle Mama,' 'Rainbow Road,' 'B. Gunn,' and I think 'The Thief. I know [Elektra president] Jac Holzman will love this, because he started his business delivering his recordings on a Harley The Thief - Sailcat - Motorcycle Mama (Vinyl met him in ' He was trying to get a job as a guitar player or something at Muscle Shoals Sound.
Word got out that I was building the perfect beast, and Pete came down like the first or second day that we were recording, and all I wanted to do was get drunk and go sit by the river or something. So I said, 'Hey Pete, you wanna produce?
He just rolled [his] sleeves up and started telling people what to do. He said word got out at Muscle Shoals Sound, which was a closed door for him, [and] they offered him a job as soon as he finished the project. Why Sailcat? I remember when we did 'Highway Riff,' we had an intro on the guitar, and I told [keyboardist] Clayton Ivey, 'In one part, I want it to sound like he's riding and the cops are chasing him. I said, 'And then I want it to be like an adventure, and all of a sudden, he comes to a screeching halt.
And then the sun's going down, and I want it to sound like he's coming into town and winding down, and eventually winds up in a bar having a beer. In "Ambush," I want places where it sounds like circus girls swinging by their feet from those ropes. As for the album's "concept" with which Wyker is even credited on the back cover"I called it a rock opera.

I've got the same honor to be able to tell you that this is gonna be a hit, and it's gonna change your life. Go somewhere and stay healthy, and we'll contact you when we're ready. I loved it so much, I'd never felt that free, just having a good time. I was seriously considering telling Elektra to go fuck off.
But one day I was in the shower and heard 'Motorcycle Mama. Then at the end of the thing, I heard the guy say, 'That was ol' Sailcat singing about his motorcycle mama. I got one, how 'bout you? I went running out of the shower naked, screaming, 'Hey y'all, I just heard "Motorcycle Mama" on the radio!
Hallucination verification, somebody! We got a hit! Then later we heard it on a country station. I said, 'Good The Thief - Sailcat - Motorcycle Mama (Vinyl, man, I got a fucking crossover hit.
