Cover of a Cover. Cover of Josh Rouse covering “Cotton Eye Joe.” Damn, I keep forgetting to turn the iPhone sideways for video. Will remember next time. Vocals not very clear because P.A. is way in the background and the iPhone mic is picking up mostly the guitar. Oh well just a test. Not bad.
Damn, I also just realized I left out a whole verse!!! The one that goes, “I’ve been laughing in the sunshine. I’ve been lying in the rain. You know that living is easy, and I ain’t feelin’ no pain.”
Oh well, do over. And next time I’ll have the camera sideways, and maybe try to play picking with my fingers, Brazilian style, like Josh plays it.

Here’s a brand new Josh Rouse song, coming on his new album (don’t know the title) called “Cotton-Eye Joe”

UPDATE: 6-23-09 This MP3 is fine quality now. All I had to do is open the whole podcast into Audacity and then edit out everything but this song. DUH!!!!!!!
I apologize for the poor sound quality. I recorded it on Audacity from his latest podcast, and it only gave me the choice to record from “internal microphone” instead of straight from the soundcard, so there’s a lot of hiss and tinny sound from a computer mic. I thought Audacity gave you the option of recording from the soundcard? And for that matter why doesn’t Garage Band?
OK, this is a “boot-leg” so if Josh or any of his management don’t like it, they can just notify me and I’ll take it down, but I thought it was so great! I’m definitely buying the album, as I have all of his, and I hope everyone else does too! Much luck, Josh!
