The rare 1971 “Fiddler On The Rock” album by the late, great blues-rock violinist Don ‘Sugar Cane’ Harris - featuring guitarist Harvey Mandel, bassist Larry Taylor and drummer Paul Lagos - and recorded in Germany when all were on tour as members of the John Mayall Band.
Pasadena-born "Sugarcane" Harris was half of the R&B duo Don & Dewey in the mid-50s, writing a number of rock & roll hits, including ‘Farmer John’. Apart from his time with Mayall, he is best known for his work with Frank Zappa on the albums “Hot Rats”, “Burnt Weeny Sandwich”, and “Weasels Ripped My Flesh”.
Harris claimed to have assembled his perfect group for the ‘Fiddler’ album and the label’s producer Joachim E. Berendt later commented that “almost all the pieces that Sugar Cane plays on our record are first takes – the four musicians were so well attuned to each other.” The quartet recorded five Harris originals.
