Probably Not Dick's Picks
:: Nixon's the One ::
:: Pre-Impeachment Blues ::
Well, I thought I was making quite the timely purchase when I came across this single, containing a song called “Pre-Impeachment Blues” on the b-side. Of course, that’s just wishful thinking. It appears that nothing will be happening on that front. But we can transport ourselves back to the good ol’ days of 1974, when actions sometimes had consequences, with this single on John Fahey’s Takoma label.
The interwebs don’t give up much of anything on “Kathryn & Duffy,” but their backing band “The Enemies List” most likely consists of session musicians Lindsey Buckingham, Waddy Wachtel and Eddie Tuduri, who are credited as the writers of the mostly instrumental “Pre-Impeachment Blues.” Both sides are produced by Keith Olsen, who introduced Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to Mick Fleetwood in late 1974 when Fleetwood came to Olsen’s Sound City Studios looking for a place to record. Buckingham and Nicks soon became part of Fleetwood Mac, Olsen produced their 1975 self-titled LP, and the rest is soft rock history.
