Friday Night Concert Clip: Rhinoceros- “When You Say You’re Sorry”

One of my favorite chicken-scratch/fusion funk/”southern-fried” (but not “southern”) confections of the late ’60s/early ’70s was Rhinoceros — a concocted “supergroup” conceived and assembled by management at Elektra Records — a label that among other distinctions, recorded at Jimi Hendrix‘s then new “Electric Lady” Studios in NYC.

They weren’t a band long but while they were, they laid down some prime examples of a chunky, funky R&B/blues-influenced sound that also surfaced in acts like the Elvin Bishop, Delbert McClinton, Wet Willie and scores of others.

In this clip,  after an absence of over 35 years, Rhinoceros, featuring original members: John Finley, Alan Gerber, Danny Weis, Michael Fonfara and Peter Hodgson with Mike Sloski (drums) and Bernie LaBarge (guitar) played the Kitchener Blues Festival in Ontario on August 7 of last year. Straining to hit some of the high notes in this clip, they nevertheless recapture the mojo of “When You Say You’re Sorry”.
