RECORDED AND MIXED BY Tim Eggmond at EI COMPLEX studios, AMSTERDAM. Monday 4th January 2010.
JOHN SINCLAIR and his AMSTERDAM BLUES SCHOLARS
Kicking off 2010 with a fresh/live recording session at the EI COMPLEX studios, Amsterdam. After an initial session between Vince and Fly last year, plus a brilliant solo 'Monk suite' of poems by John, we returned together in early 2010 to record six poems.
Starting at roughly noon, Vincent and myself recorded two sets of music, followed by 3 sessions with John Sinclair starting around 5 PM through until 8. We made two passes on "It Smells Like Sulphur Here," playing a little slower on the second cut, and the poem in honour of Jimi Hendrix "Scuze Me While I Kiss The Sky" is repeated twice by John, capturing our groove and giving us a healthy double-dose, or was it a triple? of the poem.
All the other tracks were spontaneous creations—unplanned grooves—built from feeding back with John a little before we played, and listening to him in our headphones live. The poems are:

Shortly after the session I handed the freshly cut tracks to John, who promptly programmed some of them into his underground radio shows to stunning effect, that you can listen to now on John Sinclair Radio Show 306 and Sinclair On The Air 15 & 16.
I went back to the the studio again yesterday, wednesday 13th January, and picked up the earlier part of the session where Vince and I let loose on some Marshmallow mayhem.
