Keith Landry's Favorite tracks on alonetone

by Keith Landry


Metal Man

Uploaded .

An unusual traditional tune from the first Scartaglen album way back in 1984. Going through stuff the other day and ran across the LP and couldn’t even remember the tune or having recorded it. I played guitar on this track

How lovely to have these tracks from what is now a fairly distant past. Great musicianship.

Kirk, This is Greg Zenitsky. You likely won't remember me but I was a student at UMKC in the early 80's and I made a couple of recordings of Scartaglen as part of a project in Tom Mardie's audio recording classes. I believe one of the tunes was Metal Man. Is this cut from that tape by chance? I misplaced my tape copies years ago before having the opportunity to make digital copies. Regardless, I hope this message finds you well. Always enjoyed your music!

Thanks for posting this. It's always nice to go diggin' through the ol' stax to stumble on lost forgotten gems. I think I recall you guys playing this live...very happy to be able to hear it again now.

Is that the same Metal Man that Barry Dransfield did on Bowin' And Scrapin'? Maybe that's where I remember that tune from. I swear I don't remember a Scartaglen recording before Middle Path, but I do seem to recall you guys had one on Kicking Mule Records....

Holy shyte, I haven't heard that tune for years, not even sure I ever had that record. Pre-Middle Path? You should dig up Jezaig sometime, though I seem to recall that Roger played the guitar part...

Guest said

You "played guitar on this track"...and how! Typically brilliant. Wonderful flavours and shades of awesome.
