Geoge Benson Live From Phoenix
Richard Bacon Presenter in London asked George
about Miles Davis.
He said he had just recorded a record using his Musicians
"The Great Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Billy Cobham"
He then said "It was his first record, he was the hottest new drummer in the world
at that time,"



That made a nice change
this was just before 7AM UK Time

The first record I made with George was “Giblet Gravy” 1969. The next one was “White Rabbit” 1970, I think. I remember Herbie being on that one but I am not sure about him playing on Giblet......... I could wrong. Both recordings are amongst my favorites and both gone for Creed Taylor.

Yes Bill
So Great Backing guitar was Eric Gale, on 4 tracks.

Then in 1981 Creed Taylors 2nd Fuse One CD
has George Benson on the last track
again with Eric Gale Backing Guitar.
Stanley Clarke and Ndugu Chancler   with Stanley Turrentine.
It came out on UK CD with one bonus track (I assume unfinished).
"Ode to Kudu"  with more Bass being played
