The source of this, also available here at Guitars101 courtesy of EDGE (Thanks!), runs extremely fast/sharp and needed some further improvements, one of which was to uncover and split off an unlisted 'Apricot Brandy' to a new track you'll find here after 'Gold Rush' which is unfortunately incomplete.

So here it is, back to the state at which it was originally performed (minus the missing bits of course) restored to the proper speed and pitch first heard by that lucky Harrisburg audience a long long time ago.

Geetarz Comments:
One of my fave performances, a personal favorite and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

We all talk about just enjoying "good music", but few people really live up to that ideal. People seem to like things that are easily categorized, and Danny's music could never be defined that way. Even here on Dime, what do we put this under?

Here in just this short set, we veer from country-tinged hard blues, Telecaster Madness, into a reworking of Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee".

"Blues Newburg" is a blues, no doubt, but it's jazz tinged. The apltly titled "Elmira Street Boogie" owes much to 30s and 40s swing bands as it does to "jump blues" and rockabilly.

"Funhouse" comes from a jazz direction but with pop sensibilities, and "Pretty Blue" is jazz - or is it blues - with a chicken fried coating.

Perhaps the best explaination here is offered by Danny himself in his introduction to "Gold Rush", to wit:

"Gold Rush ... look out, this is a weird tune coming up ... you never heard this before - of course, you probably never heard a lot of these before! Originally, this song was by Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys, and it went, originally, was like this, on banjo and fiddle [plays a bit]. You get the idea? I got the idea to mix this thing up with a little southern rock thing, then we jump over to Scotland for a little while, play the bagpipes. But there's also a little ... what the hell's the name of that song ... "Battle of 1814" or who cares what the name of it is ... I'll just play it and see if you can comprehend it, it's difficult enough for me!"

That pretty much sums it up, Danny was, to me, the ultimate "Melting Pot", you add all good music together and you get "Danny Gatton".

Danny's music deserves a wider audience - share with a friend!

Geetarz - An Obsession - Audio and Video Reviews

Goody's comments:
The original source posted by Geetarz plays extremely fast, for the most part, and at various different speeds throughout. I thought this would be easy when I started out working on it. It turned out to reveal some surprises, not the least of which is a hot version of "Apricot Brandy", not previously mentioned, and now on its own track. It was at the end of Track 8 just after the dead stop during the sax solo, unfortunately leaving that tune incomplete in its tracks. We'll never get to hear Danny's brilliant work following that solo on Gold Rush. At least, not in this Harrisburg set.

Track 10 seems to be a variation on Big Joe Turner's 'Boogie Woogie Country Girl' with different lyrics.

One thing I should mention is a longer playing time to this show now, due to the speed having been slowed down when the pitch is tuned down to its proper place in the 1991 world, so the total time of the CD is now 81:05. That means that y'all can probably overburn it to a single disc if your settings on your burner and your discs allow it. These days, most do. Just set your preferences to allow overburning and set it to 82:00 just to be on the safe side in the future. Some discs will actually burn that much! We're good here, needing much less.

Thanks to the kind and generous nature of our art department, ethiessen1, within you will find an art folder, nay - 2 art folders - 1 regular and 1 hi-test - each containing, along with the others, one back art for a single disc burn and one for a 2-disc burn. He is nothing if not accommodating and generous to a fault and deserving of many thanks!

[One more extra special comment:
I believe Danny was talking about an old tune called "The Battle Of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton, that went a little somethin' like this:

"In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they began a-runnin'
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico"

Or somethin' like that. Did that all from memory.]

New link to download this to a single zip

Please ignore the link in the post, above - it takes you to a page where you need to click the top box to select all the files and then click 'download' which may not have been the correct way for me to have done this.

Here's a link to send you to the 'tinyurl' page where you can select 'proceed to this site' to go to the FF download of the ZIP of the complete file set.

My thanks to EDGE - the link problem is resolved and there is only one link here in both the original post and the above comment. Please download the show at that link and there should be no confusion or problems.

Oh - and enjoy!
