After many arduous hours in front of the MR-8HD recording device, and then many more in front of my PC, I have finally finished reviewing every recording, ripping those parts of them that qualified to mp3s, and then posting them on the website. It was a lot of work, but it was totally worth it. ^_^
Last year, in 2008, after filtering through easily 10 - 15 hours of recordings, I found, ripped, and mastered a total of 11 tracks that I felt were "keepers." This year?... FORTY! That's right, 40 jams managed to make my cut as keepers. They're not all the most intricate, well practiced, or polished tunes, but considering we get together only once a year to jam, they all qualified as keepers.
As mentioned in the previous post, I broke my ankle this year during the trip to IL. I had in mind a jam from the time I got to O'Hare Airport on Sunday that I would name after that busted ankle. The name of the song is "Busted Ass Fibula
", and along with the download I put a picture of my abused ankle, you can see it here
, the broken area is emphasized with a red outline.
The download page with all the 2009 tracks is here
, or you can download a zip file with all of Friday
I haven't had a chance to listen to all the tracks outside of when I was mastering them all, but here are just a few that I really liked that first time through:
- Busted Ass Fibula
