I honestly wish I'd found them earlier. Apparently they're doing a gig in my country this month. But it's sold out. Damn.

Happy Jack, if you ever want to hear Ben Andrews in an intimate no production recording session Mapleshade has a CD.

You can listen to a sample.

http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/56962.php

It's a house up in Maryland. the guy that owns it is an engineer. He gets a bad rap from many engineers because he sells "snake oil" cables and such. He also records raw. no compression and such, just performance to tape.

the CD's are good. they are not to everyone's liking but I'll tell you something.... when I heard that link you posted .... and I didn't even remember the guys name.... but I recognized the personal style and looked this. This new stuff is over produced. But I suppose it sells too.

Anyway if you ever want to hear raw talent captured that Mapleshade stuff is it.

Check out this Clifford Jordan track. and that's an mp3. The CD you can hear everything.
http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/mp3s/cliffordjordanlive1.mp3

I mean you hear foot taps, finger clicks, dynamics, pads closing on the sax, chair squeaks, mic proximity from artist moving, it's all in there. Again, a lot of people feel that stuff needs to be engineered out and in many respects, rightfully so but I find it really interesting.

Little Afro Cuban world beat. http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/mp3s/enriquillowinds1.mp3

This track must have 20 - 25dB of dynamic range... http://mapleshaderecords.com/cds/mp3s/sunnylandslim2.mp3
The typical song these days has 4 to maybe 6db.

He's a session musician / producer. To be fair to him, he bought one of the 'Wrecks new from Ken Fisher, before they became legendary, and he's had that old Gibson a looong time. I guess the recent Trainwreck must have cost him a pretty penny, though.

He can play a bit, too ....

Yep! he can play. Yeah, I've known about him for a long time. Posted his links several times.

I was just thinking about the second wreck. Granted he may only have $5K in his old amp and guitar. but if he had to pay full price for that new(old) one, that's a lot of money to own two of the same amp.  Of course like you say, he writes it all off anyway so why not.

Currently listening to ... absolutely nothing as I've just managed wipe everything off my ipod! Just one of those hazards of swapping between too many computers too frequently.

speaking of which, I'm not religous either but if there is one man who could convince me, it would be Johnny Cash :) .
when I sing his song "man in black"; I replace the "Jesus" with "Johnny" or "Jimi"
I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Johnny said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

playing a few more ... and the info says it was a 1970 release ...

I didn't know that when I wrote 'summer of love' above

it just has that vibe and you kind of recognise it instantly

yeah close the whole "Cold Fact  album is great but dont listen to it more than twice or youll be hooked, seen him live in 1998 in johannesburg South africa, and met him after the show and he autographed the CD cover of the cold fact album for me, nice guy as well, on a side note he apparently was a Mayor in some USA town dont know which town, he made 2 albums and then retired from the music scene.

it was rumoured that he had died , which wasnt the case, he had left the music scene has he did not make a break through and went into politics, somehow in late 1990 s he heard that hes music was huge in South africa and so decided to tour.
