Yeah, Bill,
And if you check out the videos you'll see there's a lot more than just blues and doo wop represented.
(If I hadn't lost my hard drive there'd have been a bunch more, since I recorded the whole Sunday night concert and some more of the spontaneous music in the Peace Cabin.)


Interesting suggestions, Micca. (Though I find it's time-consuming enough to deal with the videos without having to sync a separate sound track to the images.)

Thing is, I've been pretty happy with the sound quality on most of the videos from the Getaway. The miked acoustic instruments in the concert, such as Kendall's guitar, my guitar, and

ClaireBear's dulcimer on her "Buffalo" song,

are exceptions.   And I have nearly always found that miking an acoustic guitar satisfactorily is difficult in a live performance. It's hard to get it miked loudly enough without risking feedback if I move an inch or two while playing.

Oh, and, Amos, you know that last BBB-4 clip, with all the flouncing floozettes, wasn't in the wee hours of the AM. That was Sunday afternoon at about 4PM, if I recall correctly.

But THIS one was about 4 AM in the Peace Cabin.
(Some people just won't go to bed at a decent hour like normal people!)
