Weekly Acoustic Podcast Episode 10 – “All Along The Watchtower” and “Pieces”

March 19th, 2010

This week’s podcast consists of the great “All Along The Watchtower” by Bob Dylan, immortalized by Jimi Hendrix, and “Pieces,” one of my favorite tracks from my Two Sides Of The Same Soul album.  I sing Watchtower with my band, so this is an acoustic take on it.

Periodical acoustic podcast: “All Along The Watchtower” (Bob Dylan/Jimi Hendrix) and “Pieces” by me

December 4th, 2009

So I finally have returned to my promise of two podcasts a week.  🙂  Not sure how long I’ll be able to keep it up, but it is how it is.

The songs this week are “All Along The Watchtower,” written by Bob Dylan, perfected by Jimi Hendrix (Yet another song I happen to be singing for Town Crier), and “Pieces” off of my Two Sides Of The Same Soul album.

The usual — no editing, me on my acoustic, recorded on my Sony ICD-SX700 voice recorder.
