In his 60's there and being in my 70's now, I continue to be amazed at his artistry. What a technique and what a sound! I think he's playing a Selmer USA tenor there but with a Paris neck, maybe MK VI. It has a high F# but also a flat pearl front F. His VI had no high F# and his 'official' Super 80 had a tear-drop F. Listen to his 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes'. At that time he was playing a Brilhart 'Velvet Brass'. Later, like in the above video, he had switched to a Dukoff 'D'.

I've always loved Boots. And, yes Yakety Sax was among my favorite tunes as a kid.
But it just does something to me when the average person, likely non-musicians only associate him with Benny Hill...

So many great recordings from him!!!
I love the thing he did with Richie Cole.
Really fun to hear the two of them together.

Definition of an intellectual: "Can listen to the William Tell Overture and not think of the Lone Ranger." In the same vein, I can't hear Yakety Sax and not think of Benny Hill! :mrgreen:

Thank you, Mark, I enjoy Boots.

(And the younger generation is asking "the lone who?")

It doesn't take much of a stretch to know that I like Boots! There's a recording of him at a jazz festival (I forget which one) playing alto with, I think, Gary Burton on vibes and absolutely swinging. He was a master of the saxophone. Even if you don't like his taste in music you have to admire his mastery of the instrument. I knew Yakety Sax before I knew of the Benny Hill show airing in America so I don't automatically make that association.

Here is Greg showing what a great influence Boots has been to him.

(The mouthpiece is not available yet to the public).

Fantastic player and a humble man.

In once met him in 1984 here in Amsterdam where he did give a master class of Rock & Roll (together with Sil Austin and Lee Allen, organized by Hans Dulfer, the father of Candy). He showed a lot of blowing tricks and sounded great, but he still told us that others could do that better!

Totally enjoyed Googling up this thread when I started on a Boots kick a few months back. The Yackety Sax mode is nails on a chalkboard to me, but Boots R on ballads...so great. There is such a sincere, dignified, authentic, Southern churchy thing in there. People who have never heard the ballad playing: you may find yourself a big fan after they do, if you haven't already.
