Earl Palmer died last Friday. I don't have anything to add to the remembrances and tributes already out there. So here's a few songs from DRUMSVILLE, Palmer's 1961 LP on Liberty Records. The guitar on "What'd I Say" is fantastic but if you're only going to get one song, I highly recommend Earl's version of "Teenbeat".

Earl was my lifelong inspiration, I copied his licks and feel, for 30-odd years and his influence made
me "A cut above the average" without hours and
hours of rudimental practice. Along with Don Lamond and Jon Hiseman, Earl made things so
much more exciting and worth while for my life-
long love affair with the fine art.
