The Naked CD.
The gig was awesome. The band was hot, energy was up, and the night was cool and beautiful. There were women hula-hooping and dancing in the field, there were folks singing and clapping along, and the whole thing made it into a digital recorder.
AvalonFest is a yearly music festival held in Paw Paw West Virginia. It’s just like any other little music festival, except that it’s held at a clothing-optional resort. Most performers don’t play nude; I did.
The recording of that set captures the vibe and energy pretty darn well. Lisa Redfern sang delicious harmony, Tommy Geddes kicked out some mean-driving rhythms, Mike Mullane delivered a seamless low end, and Miche Fambro played electric and classical lead with his signature percussive flamenco/jazz style. It was an AWESOME show. I got to dance around on stage and off while the band just killed it during the solos.
Tommy and the guys helped edit, then I stayed up until four that night, burning a hundred CDs to fill pre-orders. As of this writing, there are about 50 left. The disc has 12 songs, five of which haven’t been recorded before: “Mexico,” “You,” “Mirrors and String,” “Around Around Around,” and the brand-new “Suppose Time.” It’s in a sleeve, so no fancy liner notes.
