lol ! Now I know why your Screen Name begins with Night... Your like an Owl, Bats, etc, you come out at night. :biggrin:

Really nice of Brian to dedicate it to Corfidians, thanks Anne. :)

Yep, I am a night owl, my Canadian friend :)

This morning, I stopped in to take a look at the board and I thought you called me an OLD bat...lol.
Then, I put my reading glasses on and it said Owl, Bats...blah, blah...lol :)

I was about ready to take the midnight train to Moncton and smack you silly, Jesse Joe :)

Yes, Spanish Moss is great! Brian did a wonderful version of that song.

Yes, it was nice of him to dedicate it to the Corfidians...of course, now he is one of us :)

Char, John, or anyone that goes to those Massey Reunions, you should invite this great singer to your next one. Man oh Man can he sing good.

Great job once again Brian. :clap: :)

Yes, I love this cover of Don Quixote...he did a wonderful job:)

I stayed up late just to bring it over and you already did it...lol.

Are you working overtime, JJ? :)

Brian - 7761864
 
I added the Joe Mills and Brian duet to Brian's thread a while back but notice the whole thread somehow vapourized

I like that he does some of the non-standard covers like MTMS, ONTS, DK, etc...he and Joe should try a few more:)

I see the moderator corrected your typo. When I first saw it, I thought.....'oh no.....now the bots are able to start threads'.

i recall my first LATR listening (it wasn't on a very good music system but it sure sounded fine to me)...thanks for reviving that moment with your sedating version...nice to see someone standing (vs seated) and performing, like Gord-ish

Love that "sedating version" LOL. Now I know why my Dogs are always falling asleep when I play.
Thanks jj

request unsettled1/brian:

could you tell a little about evolution/process of the duet collaboration with joe mills and if there is anything further coming?....i appreciated that effort muchly

Unsettled 1 10-26-2009 03:38 PM

Re: Brian - 7761864
 
Hello JJ.
The collaboration was suggested by Joe after we had been commenting back and forth on our videos. He did the arranging and editing (I'm no tech.) I sent him a recording via "Transfer Big Files, (don't use it, it had a virus) and he somehow overdubbed the rest. I was jazzed to see and hear it. I would love to do more with him, but I don't know if he has the time. He is quite popular in Bavaria I believe, and deservedly so. I do know he had a skiing accident a while back, and endured a slow recovery. It's nice to see him back. Perhaps a request would nudge him along? Hopefully, we will do more someday, as several people have asked. He is a very nice gentlemen.
Take care,

Brian

Re: Brian E. sings Gordon Lightfoot / A Great Voice !
 
:clap:it's really getting hard to pick a fave Brian performance, he picks all my true faves...and such steady meter...if I knew how to download even the audio alone, I'd make a comp of his finest, assuming I could narrow it down to an hours worth

would be a treat to have this gent at Massey/pubjam sometime

Jesse Joe 11-10-2009 09:16 AM

Re: Brian E. sings Gordon Lightfoot / A Great Voice !
 
He once told me that he was thinking of going this year, but it was not is final answer. He also ask me if I was going, but I told him I never attended a Massey reunion, and I also said if your going do bring your guitar.

Re: Brian E. sings Gordon Lightfoot / A Great Voice !
 
ps) Brain, thank you for doing a wonderful version of my fave Croce song, Age! (first off of that classic Jim and Ingrid album)

http://www.youtube.com/user/7761864#p/u/4/XN3nbQaecT8

may I request my 2nd fave: Thursday?...ok, and about 10 other Croce's, lol
