Album Notes
The beginnings of "Whisky Lady" came to life in 1972 in the partially flooded basement of a club called Fore and Aft South. I had the idea for the first verse and part of the chorus and played it for my cousin and then-writing partner Luke Spagnuolo. I had to stand on the couch in the dressing room to play it for him because of the water! Luke said, "Let me run with this!"
It had kind of an English folk song feel to it. When we went to England with my Band, Doc Holiday, to record our first album at Olympic studios, we recorded "Whisky Lady" using acoustic and electric guitars, dulcimer, slide (Bob Mayo, God Bless Him), bass and drums. It was a much slower version than the present 'Bandoleros’ version. A few months later, Bob and I went back to Olympic to play on Johnny Hallyday’s new album. Johnny’s lyricist wrote French lyrics for the song and it became the single to his record, Insolitude.
The Bandoleros version was cut live except for one or two overdubs. In the video occasionally, you see me doing a new vocal, but we decided to use the vocal I did while cutting the track. I love to record live!!
"Whisky Lady" has travelled a long road.
