Beautiful pic of you and Eddie. Looked for you on the show but to no avail. Hope it went well for you. Did you do the 45 show as well?

BANKHOUSEDAVE,
THEY HAD TO PUT THE GUITARS WAY OUT IN RIGHT FIELD BECAUSE THE CAMERAS THAT SHOOT THE JUDGES CAME FROM BEHIND STAGE.
I DIDN'T EXPECT THEM TO GET MUCH ON ME.THE FOCUS SHOULD BE ON THE FUNKS.

WE ALSO DID THE WAYNE BRADY SHOW,AND THERE WERE GOOD SHOTS OF EVERYBODY ON THAT SHOW.I DON'T SUPPOSE YOU GET THAT SHOW OVER THERE.

THE MOTOWN 45 SHOW IS JUST THE FUNKS.
HERE'S A FEW MORE PICS FROM THE SHOW.JACK AND JOERANDY AND BOBBOB,JACK,RANDY,AND TOM SCOTT

Looks like I'm going to work on my horizontal action on this new forum. Just found the rest of the montage with Mr Babbitt, also way out in the right field. Thanks again, Ray.

Hey Ray,
Great Pictures - since Babbitt hasn't answered our question about the bass he was playing, amaybe you can! Was that a special paint job he had done or were those stickers or is that a prototype for a signature bass or ?????
Regards,
russ

RUSS,
I WAS WAITING TO SEE IF BABBITT WOULD ANSWER,BUT HE'S ALL TIED UP TRYING TO GET HIS KNEE SURGERY DONE BEFORE THE NEXT DATES.
THAT BASS IS A SPECIAL EDITION MOTOWN P-BASS THAT FENDER IS PUTTING INTO PRODUCTION.IT'S GOT THE MOTOWN LOGO AND PICS ON IT.IT WAS PRESENTED TO BOB BY FENDER,AND A SECOND ONE WAS GIVEN TO HIM TO PRESENT TO RANDY JACKSON.THEY ALSO GAVE EDDIE THAT WHITE STRAT. HE WAS PLAYING.BOB SAID THAT HE LIKED THE BASS AND ENJOYED PLAYING IT.

RALPH,
IT'S AMAZING!! IT'S LIKE STEPPING INTO A TIME MACHINE AND GOING BACK TO 1965,WHEN I FIRST MET ALL THE GUYS.AS YOU KNOW,MY FIRST SESSION WAS COOL JERK.THAT'S WHEN I MET BABBITT,EDDIE WILLIS,AND JOHNNY GRIFFITH.
EDDIE ASKED ME TO JOIN UP,AND PLAY WITH HIM,BECAUSE HE WANTED SOMEONE WHO WAS THERE,AND HAD LIVED IT.THERE'S NO WAY I COULD HAVE SAID NO.

BELIEVE ME,IT ISN'T EASY LEAVING RARE EARTH.I'VE KNOWN GIL FOR 33 YEARS,AND THIS WAS THE TOUGHEST DECISION I'VE EVER HAD TO MAKE.
BUT EVERYTHING ABOUT THE FUNKS JUST FEELS RIGHT.
IT'S LIKE GOING FULL CIRCLE.AS BABBITT ALWAYS SAYS "ONWARD AND UPWARD".

Ray,
Actually, I just learned that you have left Rare Earth. Music is a business Ray. I know you know that. I'm sure much of your decision to leave the band was based on this fact. Gil, I'm sure understands this also. I wish you both well. We all go back a very long time.

Ray; I didn't realise your hooking up with the Funk Brothers meant you were LEAVING Rare Earth. Man, I feel for you , having to make a decision like that, but , hey, the Funk Brothers!!! If anyone belongs there, you do

Best of the best wishes and Funk On!
