C'est moi! Scraping and singing. Enjoy.

The Kitchen Tapes


Set listing

(The embedded video is a YouTube playlist. After each song, the next one should start. Use the fast-forward and rewind buttons to skip around, or visit YouTube to get links to the individual songs.)

  1. The Sailor's Hornpipe (trad.) 1:30
  2. Frim Fram Sauce (Nat King Cole via Diana Krall) 2:59
  3. John Hardy was a desparate man (I am not sure if this is trad. or by a Carter) 3:55
  4. East Tennessee Blues (trad.) 1:28
  5. Barbara Allen (trad, Child ballads) 6:08
  6. Serpent at the gates of wisdom (Robyn Hitchcock) 4:03
  7. Jeremy's Breakdown (The Modesto Kid) 1:19
All songs arranged by The Modesto Kid. That's like nearly 22 min. of music! Fully a ¼ of it Barbara Allen, whoa...

Recordings are made with Kodak Zi8, whose built-in mic is for all its smallness and cheapness, one of the best recording instruments in my house. Edited and saved using Windows Live Movie Maker and YouTube's "edit video" function.

Update: I changed the set listing a bit, so the first two comments below will no longer make sense. ("Humoresque" used to be included and is no longer, since it (a) was not recorded in the kitchen and (b) did not rise to the level of these tapes.) A word about the arrangements: I'm really taken with this form! It seems like something brand-new.

What is the title of that piece I'm playing in the second video? I know it is something from Suzuki but no idea what.

Aha: From my mom comes word that it is Humoresque, by Antonín Dvořák. Thanks, mom!
