We're getting a nice dump of snow this morning here in Vermont, and as I sat by the fire watching it fall I remembered this song from just over 22 years ago. I did quite a few recordings in my little downstairs bathroom back in Ithaca, because I liked the sound in there. This was an improvisation done while the first snow of the 1994-1995 winter was coming down, the usual two microphones right into my cassette deck. The guitar part is kinda chunky and cool, with an almost-standard tuning of EGDGBE (just the A string dropped to G). This ended up on my 1994 album the right tool, which is an album made from the best of The Andy Band Improv Tapes Volumes 24 & 25.
Pictures of my dogs Zoe & Wanda and our Ithaca back yard taken the day after this recording with the Apple QuickTake 100 digital camera, borrowed from work (at 320x240 pixel resolution).
Thanks for listening!
morning snow snow has come at last the cold wet rain I thought it would never go away snow is beautiful snow is beautiful it's falling outside out the bathroom window it's falling down out the bathroom window I was in the shower thinking about you I was in the shower hot steam but the shower water dripping down the window has got me laughing in the snow whadja think whadja think about it whadja think whadja think about the way the cat killed the rat thrashing around in the morning snow glad I mowed the lawn before I saw the snow love the snow love the snow I strap a board on my feet and slide down mountains on snow or little skinny stick boards get me walking cross the snow glide slide under the moonlight in the field with my dogs happy birthday Pete 23 November 1994 (improvised as the tape rolled) guitar tuned EGDGBD ©1994 The Andy Band
