No new Song for Odin today at is Christmas Eve eve (and we hope you're having a good one.) But since it came up, here's an old one, "There's Something Wrong with Me" from 1992, Southampton, UK (originally posted November 2018.) From the "minor secrets" of that post: "This was one of those tracks largely put together in the studio, not played live repeatedly beforehand, which partly explains the slight awkwardness of this performance. We were still trying to learn it. Fitting for the song, in a way, but then that's an excuse I could always use (and have.) I had had some rather grand ambitions for this studio track, including a horn section part all figured out in my head and more sound effects -- the studio recording begins with a baby crying, but trust me there was much more of that nature that would have been included had we had more than a shoestring budget. Despite / because of, that, it didn't come out too badly. The guitar solo happens to be one of my favorites that I've ever managed, with the "pentatonics" just slightly in enough of an unusual place to make it interesting. I don't quite pull it off all the way here, but it's mostly there. " https://youtu.be/rR9UIoAk4oc https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/909500967392522240?referrer=frankportman #music #songs #video #minds
