This is a homemade record. A solo (guitar and vox) album of covers and originals, recorded at home on a 1960s Concord reel-to-reel 1/4 inch mono tape recorder, model Transistorized 220.
This was only available as a giveaway cd at Jim's 11.24.01 show at The Point. Approx. 120 made.
The original email sent out to promote the show and album giveaway:
The Point - Bryn Mawr, PA - 11.24.01
Hello Again Friends,
I am very pleased to announce that I am returning to the Point in Bryn Mawr, PA for another show. The date is Saturday 11.24.01. The time is 9p. THIS IS AN ALL AGES SHOW (I'll be 27).
My last show there was one of the highlights of my year so far and a huge success. One of the reasons for that success, I believe, is that I offered a bribe, er, incentive to those buying tickets in advance.
So, let's try that again!
For those of you who buy tickets by next Wednesday (that's the day before Thanksgiving, folks) either at the Point or through www.ticketweb.com
I offer the following:
A brand new CD with a decidedly un brand new sound. Thanks to 1960s recording technology (recently purchased at the Salvation Army for $30), Fidelity is no longer the Enemy, it's my prisoner! Hear me recorded the way I've always dreamed, like an old Alan Lomax Library of Congress recording from the 30s. Features new compositions such as 'Show My Face Around' and 'Shine' unavailable anywhere else, plus the songs I sing for myself in my bedroom. Why would you NOT want to own this? It's FREE (sort of)
AND AVAILABLE AS A ONE TIME ONLY GIVEAWAY.
Oh, and the show will be great, too. I'm being joined by a couple of the Jim Boggia Quintet and opening up is Cliff Hillis, who you may know from the John Faye Power Trip, or Starbelly (or Cliff Hillis).
The show is BYOB, and BYOLOT (Bring Your Own Left Over Turkey).
Saturday, 11.24.01 9p
880 W. Lancaster Ave. Bryn Mawr, PA
with Cliff Hillis
Tix available in advance at the Point or on the web at www.ticketweb.com
(order by 11.21.01 to receive a FREE copy of 'Transistorized 220').
C'mon, come to this show.
Also, I AM NOT PLAYING AT THE TIN ANGEL ON THE 23RD! Despite what you may have read. DON'T BE FOOLED! You can see Kevin Hanson and Ben Arnold there on the 23rd. And then see me at the Point on the 24th.
