I was about to say that in the instrumentation they played it pretty straight, but I do think Killer Queen has a doubled guitar solo just like the Wishbone Ash, now that I think about it. 

Yep, but it sounds more deliberate:


 
Wishbone Ash seemed to have thrived on harmonized and/or doubled guitar solos and took it to new heights, but it had been around for a while, though it may have seemed more like a "gimmick" earlier on.  Les Paul did it often as did Buck Owens and his guitarist (whose name eludes me) from The Buckaroos.  The Shadows and The Ventures did it often too, as well as The Beatles ("And Your Bird Can Sing" notably) and The Allmans.  Thin Lizzy as well, once they had two guitarists in their line-up.  It was definitely a big thing in the 1970s - employed by The Eagles and corporate rock acts like Boston, Kansas, Journey, etc...

Then I have to tell you what they did with this song in the studio.   As you probably already know, these guys were like the Steely Dan of English progressive rock and were extremely proficient and technical in the studio.   Well they used to listen to different versions of various guitar solo takes at the same time for the fastest way to choose which one they were going to use and one time they were doing that with this song and the album artist walks in and says that sounds great.  So they used both at the same time!  It is the same guitarist with 2 different takes on the solo and when in parts it will blend together when certain parts are identical producing that alternating duplicate, separate phenomenon.  Really cool.
 
Was probably probably pretty rare back then. Most studio stuff like the Beatles were all overdubs but Martin tried to hide that fact. These days you'd identify that immediately with a cynical sneer and move on. 

 
IIRC the most famous overdubbing back in those days was with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.  There was north of 30 passes on the master.  So many that the tape was in danger of thinning and stretching out.

Then there was Brian Wilson with his scissors cutting up various tapes into little bits and splicing them together to achieve his desired results.  I think that the Beatles did a lot of that, too.  I cannot even begin to imagine the patience and skill required to do that.

Heh, nowadays on my rinky dink studio program dated 2006, I have the ability to expand the mixing board to up to 64 tracks.  The most tracks I have ever used was 4 and that was for making a 3 hour cross faded mixtape many years ago.  Hippie tried to teach me mixing but I never had enough material to work with for practice to really get that part going.

That is a cool story.  Might be one I once knew and long ago forgot. 

Played the shit out of this album.  Just found it and it looks like it, too.  {#Lol}

It's so old it has my last name on the cover meaning that I took it parties.

I guess that it is time to find out how bad it is.  Top of the pile now.

I have this album on vinyl.  Been meaning to dig it up.  Time Was was my favorite song on the album back when.  Twin lead guitars was killer back then.

A lot of younger people don't know this but there was a brief time in the 70s where Aerosmith was actually a legitimate blues rock band. Same old story, same old song and dance, my friend. They stopped doing drugs, put out a bunch of crap ballads and pop songs, became rich and famous and just generally sucked. {#Lol}

Miamizsun's compilation CD reminded me how good Brother Cane is.

{#Arrowu} That is one good tune, the harmonica hits the spot for me. That tune is from their S/T album, which is the only one i don't have from BC. Too bad they only put out 3 albums.
