Garry Carson Jones – More Shednanigans !

We have launched a third version of Garry’s beautiful ballad ‘I Am’.
The first appearance of I Am on the PBGB Blog came from the July 2011 SuperSesh. You can hear that version, and read the story by clicking HERE.
In May 2012 Garry returned to The Shed with his buddies and fellow PBGB Family members Ken Vatcher and Dave Crowden, and recorded four songs which you can read about and hear by clicking HERE.
We all thought that latter version of I Am was so good that when PBGB Family Member Jem Savage popped into The Shed with his Soprano Sax in mid 2012, we asked Jem if he would be happy to add a couple of layers. Jem, always a good sport, stepped up to the mic. and added some truly haunting sax lines. Ken got excited and added some shakers and congas.
Neil and Ken sat around the production desk in their Producers' hats and came up with  THIS.

Now folks, we reckon this third version of I Am is an absolute cracker. We are very proud of it.

Garry Carson Jones - Writer, Vocals and Guitar. Superb effort Garry !

Dave Crowden - Bass
Jem Savage - Soprano Sax
Ken Vatcher - Percussion

All the recording and super knob twiddling comes courtesy of Neil Porter. Ken gets a guernsey as Co-Producer for sitting with Neil to hammer out the delicate nuances of the final mix.
We reckon this ranks among the best products ever to emerge from The Shed. We hope you agree.
Congratulations to all involved.

Super stuff !  Long live The Shed.
