Part 2 12:41
The Barton Hills Choir, Dead Songs vol. 1

I have joined the legions across the country who have fallen in love with the Barton Hills Choir. These Austin kids, under the direction of Gavin Tabone, have a whole CD of Grateful Dead songs, and they also perform music by other rock acts in addition to the usual show tunes, etc.

Gavin invited me to do a guitar overdub on “Eyes of the World” (which will appear on their next album), and I’m also going to perform with the group at their annual concert in Austin on the afternoon of December 2 (which means I get to see Dead & Company that night!).
