Boy, how exciting was that paragraph?
Anyway, last night we all finally got together to go through a bunch of the songs. It was a lot of fun! David has a really loose, groovy way of playing and singing which sounds really great.
I recorded the whole shebang and figured I'd put it online for a week or so in case anyone was interested in listening to it. The recordings were basically so Chris and I could listen to them later and try to learn the songs better and were made by sticking a microphone in an out-of-the-way corner so the balance is pretty off on some of them, especially the ones where I pick up the accordion, but those who like old folk tunes or are a fan of hootenannies might enjoy listening to them. (I might skip the first one, at least to begin with, because the accordion is annoyingly loud on it; it sort of settles down after I put the accordion down and switch to piano.)
