Bob Glaub

As technology allegedly moves us forward, to my ears the album format as put forth on a double sided platter remains most sacred and superior. And those of us with rock ‘n’ roll record collections spanning the 1970s to the present day will certainly discover the name Bob Glaub on several seminal releases.  Commencing his extraordinary session career with the late, great guitarist Jessie Ed Davis (1973 / Keep Me Comin’) Glaub’s body of work is as impressive as it is expansive. His chameleonic command of musical styles embraces blues, folk, pop, country, jazz, and rock. Mr. Glaub’s warm tone, which, in my opinion is best appreciated at 33 1/3 RPM – is further augmented by Bob’s brilliant use of….space! As his note choices are usually flawless – Bob nary renders a superfluous passage. His band-leaders always sound their best when Bob fills the bass chair.  A short list of Bob’s most recognizable work includes such artists as: Patti Smith, Rod Stewart, Nicolette Larson, Gladys Knight, Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne, Stevie Nicks, Jon Bon Jovi, Ringo Starr, Natalie Merchant, Donna Summer, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, CSN &Y, Neil Diamond, Randy Newman, Lucinda Williams, and Carole King. The Bob Glaub Lakeland bass is modeled after his 1964 Fender Precision which you have undoubtedly heard!
