Here’s a little (well OK… pretty long) exercise and experiment dabbling with post production on a source live recording. We are working on a new album of all new original material but in the meantime we have quite a few recorded and filmed live jams so because we are the artists and the label and because we can we are releasing some of the “better” ones (in our microcosmic estimation) on Spotify and all major streaming services. This one turned out pretty trippy and I had a lot of fun with Ardour and the Shiroverb, TAL-Dub-III, TAL-Reverb-II plugins. The uhe Presswerk compressor and Satin tape flanging plugins came in quite handy as well… This song “I’m A Ram” was originally an early 70’s soul tune by Reverend Al Green, I first heard it from one of my fave Canadian bands Big Sugar in their early days and later by American Jam Band extraordinaire Gov’t Mule. We’ve kind of done our own thing with it to cartoonish proportions… equal parts primordial riff rock, heavy dub reggae with an ambient noise guitar solo… We also got a pretty fun video out of the deal experimenting with Cinelerra-GG so without further ado here is “I’m A Ram”.
