St. James Infirmary is a real oldie ... might be the "original" blues tune if such a thing exists. The chap playing the chords is an old friend who was for years a producer with the CBC on a show called "As It Happens" ... might sound a familiar note with the Canucks here. Back in the day George and I were folkies. I remember doing a gig with him at the Edmonton Klondike Days ... someone thought it was a good idea to put us on after a hot rock band ... we literally cleared a block full of people in 30 seconds ... you'd have thought it was Sunday night at your local ghost town.

I really enjoy playing with George ... he can actually do that magical thing ... read music ... and he understands theory really well. I on the other hand play by ear and can't read a note ... well, I can read a bit ... F A C E ... and then there's the one's in-between, that's about it. One thing we have in common is really trying to create a musical whole where both parts are equally important. I really enjoy making music this simple, where both parts are totally dependant to create the whole. In this case, as neither George or I have any kind of musical ego, it's easy.

Anyway, enough BS'ing ... just wondering if that will make it through the filter

So far in winter Edmonton it's looking a lot like Vancouver ... yeah, I know, a bit of a stretch but if this goes on much longer it will be one for the record books.

Cheers,
Ian
