We Shall Have Freedom
(1963)

mp3 of this song recorded August 28, 2013 with all the Treats for you

 

This is the first song I ever writ. On the banjo I badgered off of young Robert Curt Brand in the late winter after the New Year 1963. At St. Lawrence University. Canton, New York. Bitter cold place.

 

This actually finally got recorded at the big 50th celebration of the March On Washington we did as a last minute home show excuse for a pizza with the Treats at the 417 Studio. Only time I ever played it with them.

August 28, 2013.

 

 

this next one was writ and recorded following the 25th anniversary of
the Big March On Washington and also the
passing of my Dad. Sometimes happy.
Sometimes sad. Lots of images from the march appearin all the time on both channels
over there in New Zealand at the time.

Didn't We Have Quite A Time!

mp3 file of pb's original tune
recorded on Fostex X-15 portable cassette
in The Spare Room, Wellington, New Zealand 1989
double guitar tracks and vocal

 

 

 

We acquired 2400 sq ft of new space up here on Walnut Street in Fort Bragg.. Lots of room for recording and performance. A monster move after 17 years in our cottage studio on the little alley up above Noyo Harbor just a few blocks south. Things are just about setting pretty, at last, so be looking for new recordings in the near future. Want updates? Please contact me at nufstuff@mcn.org and I'll keep you informed on new tunes etc. as they post on this site. Also, should you be interested in full quality custom label audio CDs of any listings with all original artwork, notes etc, get in touch. I can get anything on site to you by mail. Keep the Faith!

February .... The Experiment Continues

a scalp from the second session

Rough 8-track mix of the last song we captured the other night. Amasing set up for four active musicians in a space capsule enviornment. I get pix next time. No room for dogs. 'Empty Houses' was written in the great lonliness of the Comptche Big Wet of '72. This is true miracle music. Tom Rickard on the new studio electronic drum set has really set things off again. Off the cuff and in the rough first time go around This is a two parter so not as indulgent as it might seem. Wayne, Pete, Neil and Tom Live in The Spare Room,

Holiday Treat 2010

Accidental Music From our October sessions

Tell Me The Story was written from the well back in Comptche Cabin days, I'm saying summer '73. Anyway, when Bob Evans opened his slaughterhouse and we mused on what a great music studio it would make.
