Toffy McDougall CD back


Toffy McDougall
Epic hippy jam session with 4 songs from Toffy McDougall and the rest is ethnic jamming by candlelight.

Toffy McDougall was a busker in Leicester city centre for several years in the 90s. He also ran a jam session at the Pump & Tap pub. Chris Conway held a jazz jam there on a different night.
It was proposed to make an album for Toffy in the flat he shared with his then girlfriend Amanda Burns and Misty The Dog.

We started with one of Toffy's songs, but soon afterwards we got into jamming by candlelight. Hippy ethno riff jamming to start with, then ever more strange and free improvisations. We just placed microphones everywhere and put everything through a cavernous digital reverb. And we had a blast. :-)

We recorded over 2 days in January 1992 to 4 track cassette recorder and mixed as best as we could.

Difficult to know where to file this - 4 tracks are acoustic songs, 6 tracks are improvised instrumental music...

John Martyn, Oregon, Collin Walcott, Ossjan, Kolinda

Recorded on the 9th (1-5) & 13th (2-10) by candlelight.

Only 30 copies of the cassette were ever made.

Cover art was from the original cassette album by Ali Russell, Chris's housemate at the time.

CC's fave track - That's Fine
