ELKHART – LIVE AT RUDYARDS – 04.23.10

Many thanks are due to the great Tommy Ramsey of The Small Sounds fame. Not only did he lend a very capable hand on keys during our most recent Houston show at Rudyards – he also informed us that the room was set up to record live shows direct to 2-track. A short talk with the soundman later, and we were up and recording.

It was a great moment in time to capture. Not only because the current Elkhart lineup has really gelled into a tight, cohesive unit – and not only because we had the brilliant playing/sound design of Tommy Ramsey on keys and effects – but because, for whatever reason, Houston is always really good to us. Always a good turnout – always a good show. We’re thrilled to have captured that and we wanted to share it with you here.

So here it is. Live with no edits. This isn’t a pristine studio recording – there are things that mixed too high here, a bump or two there – and Lord knows I need a script or teleprompter after hearing my less than ideal stage banter (especially before the first song) – but all in all, we’re really happy with how it turned out. I may sound like Captain Obvious here, but when you have a really good sound guy that actually works the whole set – you know, paying attention and not hanging out at the bar – it’s amazing how much better things can sound. Even if he’s never heard you before.

Here’s the tracklisting and credits – feel free to download it, post it, rip it and share it with anyone who you think might enjoy it:
