I’ve been on a video kick recently. I needed to learn a new program to replace the old video editing program that is no longer supported by my OS.
So I dug out some old tapes and files and posted four John Stewart songs on Youtube.
The first two are from a VHS tape that Jim Roberts supplied. Jim and his son did this in Seattle in 1985. The video quality isn’t great but the sound and the performace is stellar. With John are Dave Batti on bass, Dennis Kenmore on drums and Thure Gray on keyboards.
In May of 2003, Kris and I joined John for a short tour of Scotland. Our plan was to do three nights of video at the Turf Inn in Dalry, ancestral home of the great pubkeeper, Andy Fergus. We did 12 hours of video, I edited a little of it and we both forgot it existed. The quality is okay. On the dvd the last three songs have some synch issues but overall the performances make it a cool thing to see. Here are two clips:
Hope you enjoy them!
