Not many guys can say they were as instrumental in changing the course of rock music history with little to no recognition or immediate involvement as much as Terry Reid. Due to touring commitments, and a overly possesive manager named Mickie Most, Terry turned down jobs to front Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin; for the latter position Terry pointed Jimmy Page in the direction of a friend with a similar shrieking voice, a young man by the name of Robert Plant. Jimmy did check him out and hired him, along with John Bonham, and Led Zeppelin went on to become the biggest band in the world while Terry toiled among little promoted albums, label changes, and zero chart success. At least Aretha Franklin called him the best voice "across the pond" once, and his vocals in the late 60's along with Plant and Marriot influenced a shitload of high, melodious shriekers.

Very light and easy tenor in his early days with a nice raspiness to his voice, could attack the A4-D5 range better than anyone.


Terry's greatest vocal achievement IMO.

(ALMOST)ALL NOTES HERE:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygYZDywEhrM
4:24 on for the D5 and F#5's

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BrGgmJ0SAU
4:33 on for B4's. (maybe C5?) Can't pinpoint the B2's right now, I think it was a note the previous Reid thread maker found.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ccV6xsFPmY
1:36-2:21 and 3:33-4:46 for relevant sections.(song is Dean)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnlUxp31QL8
2:01 for C#5 and 2:20 for F5.

A note the guy from TRP 1.0 found. Could've been talking about 3:30 or the countless notes from 4:00 on...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oggZTtsL9hI
Think he hits C#5's in the chorus, or 2:23, or 2:52, or 3:58.

E2 at 1:13, trails lower but I think it's in growl. Falsetto at the end of the song, the D5 is at 3:34(only considered significant because Terry doesn't do much falsetto).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0vaWvMc5iQ
6:25 for E5.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv1zu79377A
D5 at 2:08, C5's and C#5's from 3:00 and on.


D3 is somewhere in there....

This dude is my new favorite singer! Angelic voice in the lower verse parts coupled with huge power and good rasp in the A4-D5 area as you said. To Be Treated Rite is a great example of what I described.

The live version of Dean is even better! Don't be put off by the 10min length. The last 4-5 mins are basically just an extended jam of the song.

Sounds a little like Rod Stewart, but not as unbearable.

What a find! Terry in his prime, in excellent quality. All the uploads of these performances have been very poor until now.
