FSGW Getaway -- Tape Recordings

13 Oct 99 - 09:04 AM (#123353)
Subject: FSGW Getaway -- Tape Recordings
From: Ferrara

Mudcatters made a lot of fantastic music at this year's Getaway and a lot of it was recorded. We want to get as much of it as possible to folks who'd like to hear it. However it will take some time.

One issue is, not everyone wants tapes of their performing to be made public.

FSGW policy is that we don't copy any tapes we make unless we have permission from the performers. So many of the performers are professionals; for them, recordings are an important source of income.

BUT. There were lots of informal recordings made last weekend and personally I would feel comfortable that we can trade them back and forth as individuals. Just use some discretion. I would like to hear whether folks like Sandy Paton and Liam's brother have any reservations about this.

AND, there were two sets of professional-quality recordings made, one by Max and one by FSGW member Don Nichols who taped the Mudcat workshop and much of the music of the weekend at my request. (We always tape the concerts.)

We asked attendees to let Max or Don know if they didn't want copies made of the songs they performed. Unless the performers object, Don will copy the Mudcatters' songs that turned out well on the recording, and send it all to Max. But it will take some time. In the meantime, if there are any Mudcatters who haven't talked to Don or Max, and who don't want recordings to be published, (or perhaps just specific songs that haven't been released yet) please e-mail or message me, Dick or Max. My e-mail is zither@erols.com.

For the folks who sang in the concert: Don had an extra set of mikes aimed at the audience that only cut in during choruses, etc where there was audience participation. He said that this changes the sound quality sometimes in the middle of a song. If this bothers you, and you don't mind releasing a really good cut but don't want people to hear a tape of you that sounds kinda funny in places even though it's not actually bad, -- Let Don or Max know that too, OK?

Take heart, people who came to the Getaway and those who didn't, there were some very good tapes made and as much as possible of the Getaway music will be available through Max but it's a big effort to edit, insure we have permission, copy, get it to Max etc so be patient.

I emailed Dolores already, but just to be sure I'll post it here too. VicTim performed "(Everbody's Got) Somethin' to Talk About" at the Mudcat workshop, and "Something" at the Saturday night concert--they are both our original work, and you may make copies to distribute. We'd like two copies of everything that gets distributed, one for Vic and one for Tim. As soon as someone figures out what this duplication effort will cost, let's distribute the cost of media, production, and reproduction as much as possible so FSGW doesn't have to add a sizable expense to its budget.

I would like copies of anything and everything I can get. I will carefully control what I publish, I promise. I feel too that I could be of service to manage the trade, or any other way I can be helpful. I have some great recordings that will take me several more days to go through and edit and such to share. Anyone just let me know if I can help.

Hi Rita and everyone,
This is Theresa from Shellbacks whose home computer is ill and not net wise. I,ve not stopped travelling since returning from the states so I am reading this at a friends computer. If I was lucky enough to be taped I have no problems with distribution.
As soon as possible I will contact everyone I promised that I would and more beside.
It was a super Getaway and my thanks to you and everyone who helped to make it such a great time. I hope I can do it again.
Love Theresa

Hi all, I've e-mailed my Okee dokee for using any tapes you have of me singing (or playing Prince Charming) If it's one of my songs all I ask is that you give me credit for authorship when you sing it. Thanks.

I'm still hoping to be able to go to next years Getaway. Don't know if I can afford that and go to England the next year, but we're looking for a way. Thanks to Rita and Charlie and all the rest of the FSGW for putting on such a wonderful weekend. Thanks to all the folks who came and participated. That weekend was the highlight of our trip back east.

Warm wishes to you all from the 6 below zero north,

Hmmm...I thought Tinker had started a thread for this year, but apparently not, and using established appropriate threads is encouraged, so there's no problem and no reason for me to complain so Theresa can later come in and tell me "Oh Jeri, woudja just bugger off?!" and I have to remind her that fairy godmothers do NOT use language like that, and it all goes downhill from there.

I can't wait for this year's - for the memories, but also to see what I missed!

Official non professional taping disclaimer... these are field recordings not studio cuts... No one has make up we all look bad, but we often sound good. I taped where I happened to be where folks didn't seem to mind and/or gave permission. If you don't want to be included please tell me.

Cost should be the same as last year $15 for the PC CDrom version and $3 to ship it.    I'll check on individual UK shipping, but it's probably better to bullk it.

Well if you saw the other thread, I at least got half the bathrooms cleqaaned before I posssted this... 2 more when my chores are done.

Okay folks who want copies....I need to know how many to have made. Anyone who doesn't have my address from the Getaway sheet can PM me. I can't up front this ( last year it was close to $1000) so I need checks in the mail along with the orders. Once I get everyone's money it takes three weeks for the order to come in and then I'll send them right out. This is what they are like Yes Video

I don't do individual orders, because the discounts only kick in with quanity and the price almost doubles if you do it one at a time.

It'll take a couple weeks for me to hear from everyone so patience folks.

Oh, for those who were there, I can also send out 2001 Max Kendall and the Mudcat Trad singers....

Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway -- Tape Recordings
From: Ferrara

The Getaway workshops are an open venue, like the Augusta Workshops, where it is pretty much taken for granted that people will record. If workshops leaders would prefer not to be recorded, or not to have their workshop recorded, I hope they will say so.

Once you've made a recording there's a question of what you can and/or should do with the recording. If I think I might want to learn and sing someone's song that I just recorded, I ask permission then and there. Of course, don't release your recordings to other people or use them for commercial purposes without permission.

The evening concerts are another question. Ask permission ahead of time, of each performer you'd like to record. Tinker has recorded part of the evening concerts in the past, with permission, and with permission, she has sold the recordings to people as a souvenir of the Getaway.

Don't record in mini concerts without asking. If a performer has CD's to sell, probably it's a good idea to ask before you record their stuff. (I once saw a performer pick up someone's recorder and click the OFF button, while he kept on singing.) If you prefer not to be recorded, it's a good idea to say so up front.

Does that cover it?

From: Charlie Baum

It's a good idea to ask for permission before you record; at a workshop, you can probably imply asking by being obvious about it, having your recorder/microphone clearly visible. If anyone says they'd rather not be recorded, whether at a miniconcert or just singing a piece in the middle of a workshop or a singaround, please have the good grace to turn off your recorder willingly.

Well, unlike "Augusta" workshops which are more like real instructional classes, the workshops at the Getaway are more like sing-arounds... Some of the folks participatin' might not want to have their stuff recorded so, at least fir the blues workshop, I will make an announcement that if their are any participants who wish not to be recorded to step forward an we'll honor their wishes...

Why would anyone be willing to settle for a poor tape recording of any particular person if they can get a CD of that person?
It costs money to make a studio recording, and if you pirate someone's material, you are, in a way stealing from them.

I'll sell you a CD for $10.00 or a tape for $5.00. Is that fair?

Kendall -

If the song or story I want to listen to ten times a day for the next five years because it's so great is on a tape or CD - sure, I'd prefer to buy the tape or CD. But there are all those pearls of wisdom (or maybe pearls of Kendall-ness) that appear spontaneously when you're introducing a song or responding to someone else's song, and it would be a shame if they were lost.

Also, I rather expect many people might sing songs they haven't recorded and will never record - some songs work best live, and others are songs that the singer likes and that fits in well with a workshop topic - but doesn't necessarily fit in well with the body of their work.

Within the constraints of my budget, if I like what someone does at a workshop, I'm likely to buy one (or more) of their CDs - but in my experience, the CDs aren't likely to have the song I fell in love with at the workshop.

I think it's important honor a performer's feelings about recording. When in doubt, ask. If there's a particular song that is not available on CD or tape, the performer may well offer the opportunity to record that one song at a later time during the weekend. Or not, if he has other reasons for not wanting to be recorded........copyright ? Or maybe the song isn't finished? Or maybe the performer thinks his CD carries the rendition he wants remembered? There could be any number of reasons.

"what minidisk? I don't see any minidisk!...ummm..Please sing into my LEFT shoe."

just be reasonable and fair, folks....*smile*...we have VERY seldom had any problems with this. Those who, for some reason, really do not want recording made should make take responsibility to make it clear, gently but firmly, and everyone should honor this.

Yikes. I will be bringing my MDR and I hope to come home with some of the voices and songs for my 'memory book'.

I do understand, Kendall, about preferring to have someone buy a CD or a tape rather than make an extemporaneous recording- but what about when you are singing with someone at the Getaway? That wouldn't be available on your produced CD.

That said, I'll try to get permission from any and every one beforehand, and I'll TRY to be gracious about a 'no'. *G*

I don't expect anyone to buy anything I do at the Getaway now, my voice is fishtunken, and I sound like a tame crow.
