On Facebook John Nymann gave some background information on the recently released Acoustic Classix volume I CD. Maybe some of you like to get this background information;
Hi Mike KT! Glad you are enjoying the new cd! When we were finishing up Euro/UK tour last year, Aaron mentioned we should do some acoustic versions of Y&T tunes when we got home. We got together and at rehearsal studio and just jammed thru different songs to see which ones worked. Some that we thought would work, didn’t, and Black Tiger and Barroom Boogie did! (with Vanderhule’s new cool groove on it) Contagious was a last minute decision in the recording studio! Just as we were starting to record the other one (save that for Vol. 2) Aaron tapped me on the shoulder and said, Dave is calling an audible, we are doing Contagious. Ha ha! I think we cut it in one take! We had fun doing this, and I think Dave’s vocal performance on Summertime Girls and Barroom are fantastic. And his solo guitar playing as well on Nylon string and steel string acoustic guitars. Not normally his thing, but a nice twist on Y&T tunes, I think. Here is some more info for you. That is my new Gibson J15 acoustic guitar on the cover and my old Marshall speaker cabinet. Dave’s 1974 Marshall MKII Super Lead amp from the early Y&T days!
And of course, the glass of Meniketti Forever Pinot Noir wine
Here are some pictures from the acoustic show the band played in Sacramento, CA. There was also a wine tasting opportunity.
Just as 2017 is gettin’ to an end the band surprises everyone with a nice six track acoustic EP, titled Acoustic Classix volume 1 ! Cool ! Finally there is some “new’ music released.
The following songs are on this EP;
- Rock ‘n Roll’s Gonna Save The World
- Summertime Girls
- Black Tiger
- Barroom Boogie
- Rescue Me
You can pick up this EP, which will be released mid january, for a mere 12 Dollars. Don’t hesitate, get it HERE
Just a wordjoke….sorry. On January 5th you have the opportunity to join Y&T on a wine tasting event and attend a acoustic set of an hour! so if you live round there, don’t hesitate. Looks like something unique as the band did not do much acoustic shows in their career as far as I know of.
