More Freedom

Here's another Freedom Band clip. This is an old gospel number, with three-part backing vocals and a bluesy/r&b groove. I think I'm the first "ah". We used to have the nickname, the "Wizards of Ahs", because of our backing vocals on numbers like these. I've tried over the years to incorporate stuff like this into the worship at OP, but somehow it just never comes off in rehearsal the right way. In prison, we had a horn section with trumpets and saxes. Oh how I miss that! Maybe someday...

1998, or early 99 maybe? It was recorded on a Radio Shack (optimus) tape deck. I later imported it as a stereo .wav file and added some noise reduction and compression. The performance is what it is, a bunch of guys jamming some old songs and winging it mostly. :-) I love that old-school sound. Thanks for the compliment!
