Gems on VHS recently posted 2 fantastic folk tunes

Last edited Mon Nov 11, 2019, 08:53 PM - Edit history (1)

That could not possibly be more different.

1st up Hill Country Devil.


And this is a real treat, if you have never heard Adam Carroll before it is my honor to introduce him to you. His fingers are full of lightning and he tells a story in a way that never seems strained or false.

1. I've posted 3 Hill Country Devil songs prior today, but no Adam Carroll. I'm fixing that

2. Great tunes there

I've got a lot of concerts on VHS tapes and you can still find them out there really cheap

I use a JVC HR-D47OU that was a high end player back then, it even has rack handles which is really rare

I have 3 of them for parts units too, I always wanted to try an S-VHS for music but can't find any tapes nowadays

My fave is the Allman Brothers band live (At The Glen) great concert

3. I never really got into Video much, and don't have a functional player

And other than an alarmingly extensive Ren & Stimpy catalog I don't have a collection to speak of.

But I am a Patreon Supporter of Gems on VHS - $5.55 a month which comes out to $66.6 annually - and I want to encourage everybody to find and support independent music.

I share a bunch of GOVHS videos here but there are other folks working in other genres if Folk/Americana doesn't do it for ya.

If you can upload/share that Allmans' show, that would be cool as hell. I'm a big fan

4. I got into it to try just for recording music

It was just another analog format and really works well

I'll dig out the Allman tape and post its info here, it's either "At the Glen" or "At the Wood" something like that

It's got a live version of "Dreams" that burns down the house

My problem is I don't even know how to put up a pic here, I just didn't get into any digital whatsoever, I don't have song one on my phone

But I'm getting a new phone and my kids told me they'll bring me up to date soon
