Daniel Bachman :: Feast of The Green Corn (Tascam Version, 09)

This track was recorded in the kitchen of 1405 Winchester St. in Fredericksburg, Virginia sometime in October or November of 2009, about a year and a half before Daniel would self-release his first LP Apparitions at the Kenmore Plantation under the name Sacred Harp. “Feast of the Green Corn” would appear as the opening track on that album, and in place of a lush, locust-like drone backing his dense, open-tuned picking, this early version is accompanied by the sounds of creaking wood, beer bottles popping, and friends hollering in the next room — an intimate listening environment familiar to anyone who has ever seen Daniel at a house show. I was immediately transfixed by this vast, melodic piece, and fortunately Daniel let me capture it on my Tascam 4-track as he perched on a rickety stool in the corner of a dirty kitchen on a crisp autumn Fredericksburg night.
