Secrets of Isis — Goddess Joanna Cameron — Glam Rock instrumental

In 1975 as a senior in high school I used to wake up every Saturday morning to watch the goddess Joanna Cameron in Secrets of Isis. I used to listen to David Bowie, Roxy Music, Slade and The Sweet when they were at their peak. I have to say that Joanna Cameron had as big an influence on me. While thinking of glam I was also thinking of the goddess Joanna Cameron while I wrote an performed this guitar instrumental tonight. This is in the style of Roxy Music or The Spiders From Mars. I like the Phil Manzanera and Mick Ronson guitar styles. Played on the 1981 Electra Omega X210 guitar, and 1974 Ibanez Jazz Bass. Using some of my homebuilt effects on this including the Phase 45 phase shifter and AMZ MOSFET boost. This guitar is a Les Paul Custom. The Electra Omegas that I own are actually better than 70’s Gibson Les Pauls that I have also owned. This instrumental is in 7/4 time signature at a tempo of 86 beats per minute.
