New “single”: “Pancho and Lefty”

Saturday, December 3rd, 2016

I took delivery of my new acoustic guitar by Mario DeSio a few days ago. I brought it into the studio this week, with Jeff Hobbs on cello and Joe Kyle, Jr on bass, to record one of my all-time favorite songs: Townes Van Zandt‘s “Pancho and Lefty.” We did a nice jam at the end, too.

I posted it on Bandcamp as a “pay what you want” item. You can have it for free, or you can contribute any dollar amount you like. I spent $700 on the recording (paying the musicians and the studio), and I would like to recover that amount if possible. All proceeds will be invested in more recording! I think of this as the first track of a “covers” project I hope to call David Gans Murders the Classics.

Thank you for listening, and please share the link!
