Tracks :

  1. Counting Stars
  2. Shaded in blue
  3. Song to the siren (Tim Buckley cover)
  4. The tramp on the street (Hank Williams cover)

Venue : ‘Le Grenier’, La Vapeur, Dijon.

Recorded : 2009, may, 29th. 

Notes : Nibs is the kindest person i’ve ever met for the sessions. We met at the venue, he was alone in his dressing room, with his guitar. We go on the roof, and we record the 4 songs. Then, i press « stop » on my software and… everything we’ve just recorded disappear ! Nibs told me : « would you like me to do it again ? ». Well, er… yes. Really sorry. « That’s ok, i’ve got my time… ». So here are the second takes of the 4 songs, as the first take is lost forever… We talked a lot after, about his trips, his country… so when i did the ‘Smalltown boy project’, it was natural for me to contact him again and to ask him to do a vocal part of the cover. And of course, his answer was « no problem ! ». A great musician, and a great man.
