John and I were kicking some songs around on Sunday with the 16 track recorder hooked up.
These need to be tidied up a bit but they'll give you an idea where we are just now.
All of these are recorded in a single take with no overdubs.
Which Side Are You On? Written by Florence Reese in the 1930s, this is one of the songs from the Wobblies show. It's missing Tricia's driving drum. She had to call off through illness.
Joshua Gone Barbados Written by Eric VonSchmidt, another song from the Wobblies show, and we did it in the Johnny Cash show too since JC recorded it once. We used to do this with concertina, guitar and voice, but after fidding with it for a while we decided on the broken down drawbar organ sound which, I think, adds a kind of island feel to it.
Empty Pocket Blues An old Incredible String Band song. A jolly wee bluesy thing.
