Alright, gang, I'm pretty new here, and unsure of all the protocols here, but here goes:

I'm interested in the percussion sound in "Miss Frenchy Brown." I was totally confused by the sound when I first heard it, 40 or so years ago. I liked it, but I wanted to know what it was. In my advancing years, and after picking up bits and pieces of knowledge, my best guess is that it's a claves or woodblock strike that was recorded separately with a ton of reverb, then reversed somehow, and dropped into the tune where it was needed.

Anyone else have a better guess, or actual knowledge?

I always thought it was a vibraslap, recorded separately with tons of reverb...

I could see/hear that, but I think it was reversed, as it seems the reverb is all up front. The mystery continues.
