A Song for a Son (song of the day)
< Template:Main Page | Songs
"A Song for a Son" is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins from the Songs for a Sailor segment of Teargarden. Billy Corgan consciously set the song in 1975, the year he started listening heavily to rock music, attributing the extended guitar solo to Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, UFO, and Rainbow. Producer Kerry Brown wrote:
|“||Billy broke out the Farfisa today and we ran it through a 'secret weapon' It won't be such a secret on Tuesday when I showcase it and its history in the Tech Tuesday blog ... but for those of you curious as to what it could be... *Hint*(Pink Floyd) used one of these devices on some of their recordings.||”|
The "secret weapon" was a Binson Echorec.
