Kindred Spirit - Spirit Rising

The live album , "Spirit Rising", is on sale at gigs. We had been trying to record the band since the summer of 2000; the band appears much more rarely and we knew it would make a nice full sound for a live album as well as give us good demo tracks with which to try for the festival circuit. We record at live gigs using an eight track ADAT, which gives a very high quality result. We learned some valuable lessons from attempting to record the band and now (despite some problems with feedback, which also meant that my guitar had to be turned off in the monitor; making it harder for us to keep together) we have a series of nail biting & highly charged tracks (some numbers had never been played together before and we have moments where Annie's flute & Sim's violin are duelling in harmony). There was a particularly memorable moment, during "All Along The Watchtower", where the mic stand Annie was playing the flute through began to collapse and Joey held it up with one hand, while playing the bass with the remaining hand. As well as Russell's drumming, this will be the first time the flute, electric guitar & electric violin have been recorded on a live album. Downloadable clips are available in the table below, also showing which variable instruments appear on which track.
