Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves “Sunnyside” – a jig, by god, and what a jig

Here it is, Wednesday again and we have a splendid instrumental to tempt your ears with – today’s example of that genre is the appropriate enough ‘Sunnyside’ taken from the new EP ‘Hurricane Clarice: Outtakes, Vol.1‘ by Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves.  You’ll never guess where it comes from…what, you have an inkling? That it might be formed of tunes that were recorded at the same time as the album ‘Hurricane Clarice‘ but despite being good didn’t manage to sneak onto that release?  Wow – were you born in Midwich or something, ‘cos you are spookily spot on.

But let’s hear Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves elaborate a little more – “The tunes in this outtakes release are some of our favorite additional tunes that we played. Sunnyside and The Snowstorm we did two takes of on different days, choosing the Saturday takes for both of them. Featherbed we just played once in our ‘A tunes’ setlist on the last day of recording. We learned Sunnyside from various sources, primarily the Vernon Solomon recording on the County Sales Texas Hoedown album, but also from several jam recordings of Terry Morris (you may notice some Terry Morris licks in the fiddle part). ‘

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
