….is now yours for the asking. This show is different in this series in that all the tracks are pieces that use earlier recordings of loops as the base for a new recording that adds a live solo overdub alongside that earlier recording, a primitive mutitrack technique of sorts. Anyway mister Dave Stafford also shows up with the midi pedal bubble effect on track 4 and the E-bow lead guitar on track 7 , both lovely to behold. Otherwise all the rest is caused by me:

1-  Strange News

2- The Rain Returns

3-  Monsoon

4-  Sleep It Off

5- Big Saturday

6-Ten Years

7- Musing Moon & Solemn Sun

an episode that marks a change in format . From now on all episodes will be all music and no talk, I’ll hopefully cover any relevant info here in my blog. My thanks to Glenn for his talents in editing the first 16 shows. This change will allow me to include another 8-10 minutes of music in each podcast, which may prove necessary in the shows to come to try and cover all the materials I’d like to in this series.  The seventeenth show in this series features the following tracks:

1-  32 Seconds

2- A Man I Know

3- The Sunday River

4- A Distant Embrace

5- Mister Nelson’s Radio

6- My Old Man

It’s an all solo deal with me on drum machine,synthesizer, vocals and loops . This is a rare (no-guitar) episode in the series. The first 2 tracks are from October’94, the last 4 were recorded between 6-19 and 7-4 in 1994. Track #6 is dedicated to my father. Performed and recorded live to tape by Bryan Helm.
