In this episode of DE214, The show opens with the track mix of “Gratitude” this is a unique mix and features a nice complement between James’ clean Stratocaster tone, and James Mitchell’s heavier rocked out Les Paul sound, especially in the beginning of the track. It has a very “Petty esque” tone that is luscious to the senses.
The show features the final “Mastered” version of the song “Gratitude” at the close of the show that is also the title track that went on the album of the same name.
In this episode, we discuss:
• James drove on his trip to the entire lower Eastern seaboard, then came back North through Florida’s West Coast and into Nashville for a few days, then off to Morehead Kentucky to visit my friend and extraordinary guitarist George Barker, his wife Kris, and his brother Welton, both George and Welton are alumni of the infamous but most amazing band from the mid 70’s “Tangent”.
• English Bob stops by to visit, in his classic Jalopy, English Bob is a bit nervous and reticent to meet with Peter Griffin again as Peter showed up as a real cartoon on the last visit. James comments on English Bob’s brightened suspenders that were recently treated with Iodine and then Vulcanized. English is using a new service “Yandal Booenpicken” who specializes in Iodine and Vulcanization techniques, giving them a bright and cheery, and effective, yandy, glassy of hangy.
• There are no siestas in Lower Ipswitch, English sputters like a car as he gets stuck on his magnanimity approach. He then describes Yandal’s second business, that he opens in the afternoon, “Boone Pickens Chickens”.
• Yandals process for best chicken, “He bakes it, he broilers is, he fries it, then he barbecues it. He does all four procedures. Feathers are optional, special orders, don’t upset us, just let us serve you, and be a guest of us” The “ruffle effect”.
• English Bob’s pocket watch goes off and it's time for his deep knee bends.
• Peter Griffin arrives and has swords with him, and being a cartoon character he immediately projects a hologram of a freeway right in the studio and almost gets James run over by a truck.
Best Quotes from English Bob:
“Yandal is a groundbreaking Booenpicken chicken man”. “Oh a tempest in the Titanic”.
“Well Peter, you see I have been the most famous man alive in lower Ipswitch, when it comes to fencing, yes I can lunge, parret, or engarde”.
“Take that, you big bellied ballet dancer you”.
“James are you aware that you have a freeway running through your studio at the moment?”
• On James Kevin’s music:
“It tends to remind me of Howling Wolf stuck in a peach tree overnight.
Best quotes from Peter Griffin:
“Hey how about this, get a load of my flamethrower”
“Damn the Torpedoes, full stampede and buffalo ahead”.
“English Bob, your quite the swordsman, and I will always Paul Revere this dharmiconalova, as long as I live, and I never thought I would be in a swords contest today when I brought the swords, James Kevin”.
Best quotes from James:
• On calling the sword fight:
“English Bob looks like he has the upper hand so far, I think he is going to slip in his world famous Ubiquitous Larchmont Move any second, (patent pending of course), but I understand that Peter Griffin has a Big Belly Ballet move that may be a close-sleeper”.
“Wow both opponents giving it all that they have, they left nothing on the floor today in this unbelievable swordsmanship, as I’ve never seen before”.
“Gentlemen, I don’t have a hat on, but if I did, it would be off to both of you”.
