I think this may be a first for our us. Seeing that I am out on the road at the moment, I had an idea do the show from the busy streets of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I sent Engineer X a letter about the idea and he said I should go for it. So, I came up with a show, made my list and went outside with my digital recorder. I sent the music and the voice stuff back to Engineer X via Yousendit.com and it came through intact. In an effort to make the show special, besides the crazy sounding audio, I have included two tracks that you might find interesting. One is from a record stall that I went into and bought a stack of CDRs, this would be track 07. I don't know who Aneka Palaran is and it's almost impossible to find information on her that I can read but the track sounds good and so I threw it into our mix. Or second to last track for the evening is the evening prayer that I recorded outside of a mosque across from the hotel I was living in. The last track was added by Engineer X. It features the mighty William Parker on bass, so you know it's going to be great.
I will be making another recording like this from the next location, hopefully, I will be able to score some local music. I am still buzzing about being able to walk into record stores in Riyadh and buy Omar Souleyman CD's for a few bucks. I have been listening to them over the last few days, they sound really cool. Perhaps I'll throw on one of those tracks in early December, if I can pull off another one of these on-the-street recordings. I told Mr. Bentley we were going to do this days ago and so far, I have not heard back from him, I guess he's busy with Morning Becomes Eclectic, whatever.
I promise you, Fanatics, I will do my level best to hit the record stalls in all the places I am going and drag out the bestest sounds I can and get them to you for your evaluation and hopeful enjoyment!
Thanks to Engineer X for corralling all this craziness into a semblance of order.
I hope you enjoyed Shepard guest hosting the show last week.
Tonight's show is going to be a little noisy so prepare and STAY FANATIC!!!
