    A couple of days ago I was asked why don’t you put some guitar work up. I have an archive that spans about 12 years digital and another 10 before that on cassettes recorded on an old 4-track. I thought why not go for something old. I listened to some recordings I did with a bassist, Frank Alford. I knew what I was looking for and this is it. This recording was made two months after I was inspired to do this song; summer of 98. Frank came over for a jam and we decided to make a recording of the things we had been working on. I hit the record button and played the best “Space Jelly” performance I’ve ever done. A few years later I played with two other guys, Mike Zahn on bass, and Darren Taitch on drums. Space Jelly was one of the songs we did. Mike and Darren’s performances on the many recordings we did of this song were outstanding. We added vocals followed by a more upbeat tempo that crescendos into and explosive guitar solo. But during the first half of the song I could never capture the feeling of this recording. I want to give Frank, Mike, and Darren thanks for making this song more than just a guitar jam with a drum machine.

    Oh, If you get bored with 9-minute guitar indulgent jams, don’t play this. But if you do, I hope you get to chill and listen to this voyage. To borrow an album title from the Band Moe; here it is “warts and all”
