syren Origin: Sloop John B (128* d) RE: Sloop John B 10 Sep 03


Well, in May of this year, Broadside joined with Tom Lewis in Seattle to record a couple of songs with him for his new album and he let us hear some of the cuts that he had done the week before. One of them was the "extended" version of Sloop John B which I had never heard before and since I only recently started checking in here, I didn't know about this thread then......in any case, I asked him where he got it, and he began to tell me about how it was the traditional version, and then a bunch of other folks came in and we didn't finish the conversation and then we all got to playing with the harmonies and we ended up recording a whole new backup for what he had already recorded and he said that if it came out as well in the mix as it sounded, he would use it. And I have no idea if he did, so I guess we will have to wait and see when Broadside joins him in Seattle on Nov. 1st for his album release party. (Gee, see how seamlessly I managed a shameless commercial plug??!) I will ask him again when I see him where he got it.
