Groove-O-matic can say, through sheer awesome accident, that we found them first. A happy coincidence resulting from the fact that Charles Bork of groove-O-matic was a regular at the Seattle bar where Josiah met Jon at an open mike night. And where the band evolved - quickly. We were instantly captivated and asked them if they would participate in our minimal-track, completely-live recording project. Come, we said, record with absolute authenticity. Record live using the equipment that Elvis used at Sun. Just full-track tape, a single vocal mike, and your talent. And they did.
Captured on this recording, only months before the band become a national phenomenon, is the talent, the energy, the lyricism that has made the Head and the Heart one of the most successful Americana bands of the last decade.
These are magnificent live-but-perfect performances by a band on the rise. Captured at a monophonic session, recorded live to a 1956 Ampex analog tape recorder tape and released on vinyl at 78 rpm. Two intimate and beautiful performances unavailable elsewhere. They are rendered on groove-velocity vinyl, meaning that it can be played on any turntable that has a 78 speed and does not require the player to have a special needle specifically for 78s.
''I cannot think of a better recording of popular folk. The H&H sound is authentic. The knowledge that it is truly live will change the mind of the doubters. You can actually hear the talent here. If you've ever doubted this chart-topping band, this release will overcome you, completely.'' -- Bart Cameron, groove-O-matic
