Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

Wild guitar/banjo duet improvised on the spot between courses during of one of Erbablu Style short promotional shows in 1984, this time in a restaurant. As usual, in those years of sophisticated but over-costly portable recording rigs opposed to cheap cassette recorders, we couldn't afford taping our gigs. We've been lucky enough to find out that one of the restaurant's clients had placed a handheld mono cassette recorder in front of us. In this case, aside from the usual hiss, the original tape suffers from saturation and a nasty case of flutter. I just couldn't do anything in order to restore the sound other than applying a bit of noise reduction. Too bad!

In 2006, during an aborted reunion attempt with my former bandmates (minus one since our guitarist died in a car accident November 1994), following a couple of live appearances as Joyriders I was offered the chance of overdubbing banjo and fiddle on a dance arrangement of a famous old time song. A friend of my fellow banjo and harmonica player had his home studio set with synthesizers, computer, loop station and software tailored for producing disco music, dance floor, stuff like that. The chosen tune was part of a project soon to be released worldwide on CD, or at least this is what he was bragging at. My disappointment came as soon as I recognised the chorus modulation which is in fact my own work, the original arrangement I made in 2000 for Hard Trails' studio demo - he had literaly stolen it! Lacking any proper rig for recording acoustic music I played my 1890 violin and my former bandmate's archtop Pedro Martinez DX61 through a cheesy plastic, 'home karaoke grade' dynamic microphone. Subsequent looping and equalization rendered the tracks acceptable. To cut a long story short, following a subsequent copy-and-paste rework which further sliced the tracks I laid out, the whole project came to a standstill.

Twin banjo kickoff from the show prepared by Crazy Banjo Band in the fall of 1982 for a series of gigs in a renowned club, this tune was recorded from the audience side with a cheap mono cassette recorder and underwent multiple-stage digital mastering in order to regain any lost frequencies, brighten the sound a bit and cut an obnoxious amount of hiss from the original tape. The band itself was a bit chaotic and not too straightforward, but we were young and relatively inexperienced. The response from the audience was rewarding, so everybody was happy just the same...
