Digital H – Vibes Sessions with Mike Connors

February 10th, 2010 No comments

Dave made the ‘Digital H’ tape for me and included TOC and Let’s Clap (see the line drawn on the case – I think those tracks were not from the vibes session).

Jef adds:  This was recorded in Dorcestor with Dave’s reel 4 track.  It was a one off session and we never played in this configuration again.  As usual the songs were written the night before.  The last two tracks are just Dave and Glenn, and I’m guessing it’s Dave on trumpet and Glenn on alto sax, and possibly both on flutes.   Missing from this tape is RX54 by GZ.

Jams with Justin

February 10th, 2010 1 comment

Ken [Lubinsky] and I went to Newton in July 2008 to help the Cawthons clear out Dave’s house.  Justin also stopped by and I told him that I would take the recordings to be ripped and circulated.  The only original tape he wanted that day was this recording.

He and Dave had [recorded over a] Steely Dan tape to record some rock ideas.  Justin made me a copy and took the original because he wanted to continue working with the material. He said it was recorded around 2000. Justin is currently playing bass in a band called Man Alive!

Jef writes: Sdadety is one of the “winter 95/96″ tapes [Vol. II].  The cover and title were made by Glenn and is a one of a kind.  Recorded at the box factory.  There are still a few other selections from the winter tapes that aren’t on here or the acoustic/electric (Maurice) demo.
