Unplugged – Living Room Session – 2003

Shadow Then ... and Now
Above: Shadow Then ... and Now

Shortly after Tony and I recorded the acoustic/unplugged tracks in studio, our old friend and Shadow bassist Monte Starling came down with his family for a visit. Well, we couldn’t just spend the entire trip drinking beer and reminiscing (though we tried). I fished up my Michael Kelly acoustic electric bass, plugged in some mics, and the three of us jammed in my living room. Monte’s young daughter, Carolyn, the self-proclaimed biggest Shadow fan ever, cheered us on. What great fun we had!

We recorded the entire affair in a home video, and I ripped the audio and made a few tracks out of them. Lots of silly stuff in here as well (poor Monte hadn’t played these songs in years, but he was awesome), and some inside band-jokes (sorry!), but enjoy nonetheless!
