1972. Chet Nichols “Time Loop”

This is a ses­sion I did for Chet Nichols. The album was record­ed at the famous Wal­ly Hei­der Stu­dios in San Fran­cis­co. Nicky Hop­kins played piano, Dave Garibal­di drums, and I played bass. This line-up only played on the title track.
I played many oth­er ses­sions in San Fran­cis­co as well as LA dur­ing this peri­od, includ­ing a band called “Bang” on Capi­tol Records, and a Tim Rose album on A&M Records…but soon returned to Eng­land to record “Smil­er” for Rod Stew­art and form a band with Mar­tin Quit­ten­ton.

    Hey Pete,

    Chet Nichols, here. Yeah, that was a rock­ing ses­sion when we record­ed “( Spin­ning On The) Time Loop” at Wal­ly Hei­der’s in SF. You and Nick Hop­kins and Dave Gara­bal­di were so much fun to work. I think Nick­y’s piano per­for­mance on this track is eas­i­ly one of the best rock ‘n roll piano solos ever. I was inspired by Jer­ry Lee Lewis’s style when I wrote the song.… Ya know, we also did anoth­er ses­sion togeth­er where I record­ed two tunes pro­duced by Stephen Barn­card at Hei­der’s. Check them out on my album, “Taxi To Toganoxie”.…..send me an email and let’s chat.… I’m at chet­ni­chols at aol dot com.….Hope all is well, buddy.….Chet
