Catbirds at the Barley Neck

The Catbirds at the Barley Neck, May 12, 2017: “The Twirl”, “Do the Seesaw”, “Come On Home”, and “Institution Child”- recorded by Fred Boak.

Sometimes we sound best when we’re recorded worst on a really slow night. Not that this was such an occasion necessarily, I’m just observing that in passing.

The Strongman of North American – unreleased mix

 

“The Strongman of North America” (Masterpiece Theater version) – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded mostly by Ducky Carlisle and Joe Stewart at Dimension in J.P. (some overdubs recorded by C.T. at home), mixed by Ducky at Ice Station Zebra.

An alternate mix of one of my favorites from our latest, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 2 […]

I Saw a Picture of You

painting by Paulette Humanbeing

 

“I Saw a Picture of You“- the Chandler Travis Three-O at the Dreamaway Lodge in Becket, MA., April 14, 2014, recorded by The Valet, aka Fred Boak.

Another in the endless series of discarded songs. I actually like this one pretty well, but it’s always harder to find spots […]

Softly in the Night – Live Video

“Softly in the Night” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, Sept. 4, 2016, shot (and originally broadcast live!)by Belinda.

I think this is the third song we’ve put up from this particular show, and we’ve put up other vids from previous Herring Cove shows -they’re just always a blast, and that whole sunset […]

Red Skies

“Red Skies” -the Chandler Travis Three-O, recorded at a soundcheck at Passim on Oct. 12, 2012, by Fred Boak.

I’d forgotten all about this one when it popped up the other day for no reason; one of the many songs that get worked up and discarded because they get overshadowed by more promising stuff… no […]

E (Live Video/Wellfleet Preservation Hall)

“E” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Preservation Hall for the “Waving Kissyhead” record release party, Feb. 18, 2017, shot, edited, and embellished by Paul Cass for Lower Cape TV.

Always one of our favorites, now scarier than ever! Please note the color-coordinated bathrobes on our fine horn section, the June Trailer Dancers, as […]

It Was Raining (demo)

 

“It Was Raining” – demo, recorded in Truro, April 19, 2017.

Not much of a song I admit, but hopefully some seasonal appeal (I guess now that we’re probably done complaining about snow, we’ll have to be contented with complaining about rain for a few weeks.) I recently bought a cajon, which I […]

Watch Out for That Rut, You Fool

 

“Watch Out For That Rut, You Fool” – Chandler Travis; written, performed, and recorded by me in my car.

Among many past abandoned projects was the one where I wanted to record an album in my car. I figured I could pick up other musicians for either overdubs or jamming; ideally, in its […]

You’ve Got A Friend in the White Prince

 

“You’ve Got a Friend” – the White Prince with orchestral accompaniment by the Brain Bats of Venus (aka the Incredible Casuals), recorded live at the Marbledale Pub, Marbledale, CT., by Chris Blood, circa 1983 or so (contrary to what it says in the liner notes!) From “The White Prince Story: You’ve Got a […]
