Song for John (live@firefly's) (mjrf)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Song for Big John was the first or second song I posted on MJ nearly four years ago...i have posted several different versions, but this one is the latest live show we did....this was toward the end of the night and the place was thinned out...I had a cut on my index finger on my left hand that was just driving me nuts, and by this point the cut was winning...

This gig is the first time i have tried to use the MacBook and GB in a live setting...it worked really well with the help of a very cooperative and knowlegeable sound man...it was a so-so night for the band...but we gave it our all...i will post a few more as i edit them down....let me know how it sounds thru your gear please!

peace, and thanks neil!!

You embue your songs with
emotion and I am struck by your resolve to play no matter what. The music is in you, Fran. It sounded as if I was there. Thank you.

Sounds amazingly
good for a live recording - pro standard. Fantastic musicianship and feel as always.
Just a shame about the truncated ending.
Downloaded. Thanks.
Cheers

My apologies
I checked three times when listening originally on the flash player and each time the song stopped short.
Now I come back to it and try again and it plays perfectly to the end on both players and in iTunes. Sorry for leading you astray. one of those weird blips that happen. Pleased I was wrong.
Cheers
Len

Ziti and the guys
Another killer version, dripping with soul, spirit, and flow. Beautifully executed. You and the guys sound great, and sound like a true band, all tuned into the same frequency.

I gotta say...
This sounds great. Ziti Ray Vaughan is all I can think of. I have a semi-decent set of speakers/sub on my desk at the office and it sounds awesome. Great job.
