Delta Legends – Live at The Biscuit – October 5, 2018
I got good recordings of the Delta Legends set at The Biscuit last Friday. I'm really happy with them. We each sang one. Then we had Guest Legend, Jeffrey T., on harmonica, giving us duos and trios on the blues harp. As Jeremy said, “The Helena Philharmonica.” Guest Legends Rhode Island Red and Pinky Lee helped us close the show with a couple of Emporium Orkestra favorites.
It's nice to hear the audience shouting, screaming, and whistling at the end of each song.
I did a tricky little thing and layered my closing credits over an instrumental “Killing Floor”, for an outtro. But that's the only edits for the whole set. What we played is what you hear.
Here's the link to the show on the Live Music Archive.
Spaceman Bassman sent me a message today and he's sending me the raw video he shot of the show. So hopefully we'll have a few Delta Legends Youtube videos soon.
Here's the liner notes.
