A special moment from a special gig - our Hogmanay performance at Glasgow's George Square, in front of 10,000 revellers, on 31st Dec, 2005. Here's a beautiful (even if we say so ourselves!) rendition of the Remote classic, 'Violently', with some lovely guitar effects and horn lines. If you were there, give us your memories at the Hogmanay gig page on History City.
Believe it or not, the trumpet dude was standing in for our regular guy Tom MacNiven. He sight read the whole gig ... pretty impressive I'd say. Very nice guy too ... Major Chops!!!!
As u probably know John Faddis did the original solo, so we always need a GOOD player to nail that solo .... for me this is one of the best ... There's a very funny story about the original solo ... I'll tell it when I do a Music Lab for "Violently" ...
Greg, are you really wanting us to believe that this didn't have any post production tweaks? I've just been listening to this on headphones and was totally blown away by how amazing it sounds for a live recording. Are there any re-takes added in the studio?
