    Default "Scarlet Pimpernel" live

    Did Tony ever jam on this during his solos or as an intro to another song on any of the tours with Tony Martin? I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite but this has always been at the top of the list of Tony instrumentals for me.

    Not that I'm aware... this is his best instrumental, the right length layered guitars always had a Tubular Bells (The Exorcist) feel about it. Not too long or tedious like Fluff or Laguna Sunrise or even the ballad Changes which all drag on too long IMO.

    I don't think this was preformed... Tony did do a solo during Heaven And Hell on the Eternal Idol Tour but I don't think he ever did this.

    typical setlist during the Tyr tour :
    NOTE: The first show of the tour had several songs that were never played again live – Feels Good to Me, Sign of the Southern Cross, Heart Like a Wheel, Odin’s Court.

    Anno Mundi (The Vision)
    Neon Knights
    Headless Cross
    When Death Calls
    War Pigs
    The Shining
    Guitar Solo
    The Law Maker
    The Sabbath Stones
    1812 Drum Solo
    Die Young
    Heaven And Hell
    Iron Man
    Children Of The Grave
    Bass Solo
    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (Instrumental)
    Black Sabbath
    Electric Funeral (guitar version)
    Scarlet Pimpernel
    Die Young (intro)
    N.I.B. (bass version)
    Strangers In The Night (bass solo)
    Supernaut (Inc. in a guitar solo)

    Question about the studio version:
    If I'm not mistaken, there's a bass guitar harmony played 2 times (27 "and 1'.14) during Scarlet . But who played this bass line ?
    Dave Spitz? Geoff Nicholls? Bob Daisley?

    I think it's Bob. He played every bass track on the album.

    This is the second BS song that made me cry.

    The first one was Solitude.

    At the 40:40 mark Tony jams on it with mixed results. Sounds like two guitars and Geoff is a bit too loud. Still great to hear and an awesome show!

    I think the bass is played by another bassist because Scarlet Pimpernel, written at the last period before the release of the album and by then, Bob Daisley had left the band. You can check it in the article for the Eternal Idol album in this webpage

    Yes, Tony did part of the rhythm riff as a variant part of his solo during "Heart Like a Wheel" on the TYR tour. There is a bootleg "The Martin Years", which has this extract- according to the date printed on the back cover with the track listing, it was at the Sporthalle, Boblingen, Germany, 18 October, 1990.

    I'd love to hear that!
