This confused me at first
I'm not sure what was happening at the beginning of this
track? Maybe some additional info in the description
would help? I'll hold off voting. Nice folk piece once things
get rolling.
Check out my latest song called Vanishing Pezzicato

I never imagined anybody would care enough to ask, but since you did,
and at the risk exposing the man behind the curtain, here goes.

The stuff at the beginning was recorded on an old Akai reel to reel, when the
Akai was very new. It was almost 30 years ago when I recorded my baby sister
singing one night. The song that follows is about her. Well, she's the one who
doesn't like her work. The song is really about her best friend, specifically one
afternoon the best friend came to visit. The rest is just track talk, you know,
stuff that was said while the tape was running, again, almost 30 years ago.

In those days, we all lived in Toronto, playing in bands, being artists and
essentially hanging on to the last dying notions of hippydom. On many winter
nights, an everchanging group of us would gather with guitars, grass and
great ambitions. Since money was tight, the same two or three tapes would
get used over and over again. There are some strange collages on them. Most
of it, of course, was just drunken goon babble with some poorly tuned
background strumming.

When I transferred the old tracks to GarageBand for remastering, I
realized the guitar and the toking sounds at the beginning belonged to a guy
baby sister and I called big brother. He died the day after New Years, 2005.
His name was Kevin and he was 51.

It's not a tribute or anything, just something I couldn't bring myself to
lop off.
cheers

Nice going
