I finally was able to lay hands on a copy of Jason Webley’s new CD Friday night. There are twelve songs, and it’s called “Counterpoint”. Word is that time’s been too short for comprehensive site updates chez Webley, so here’s a scan of the cover, and the songlist:
It’s Not Time to Go Yet
Goodbye Forever Once Again
You can order the CD here via paypal.
I’m still listening to it and will write more about it when the time is ripe. I was very happy to see that Train Tracks is on this record. The interior cover of the CD is fairly elaborate with linocuts by Jason which were reproduced on a large scale at the CD release party.
My wife remarks that she wants to hear a recorded version of the song which includes the line “I am not your lover, I’m the map you use to find her”, which appears to be too recent a song to have made it onto the record. I wonder if Baby Bok Choy recorded the CD release show, and if that song was performed there?
The show in Olympia was quite enjoyable, and was sort of the usual Jason solo deal: a few guitar numbers, a few accordian numbers, then a big audience piling, singing, into the street to find a parking garage.
I always enjoy visting Olywa; it reminds me of Bloomington, my hometown, but has a larger downtown area. After seeing Jason, we strolled down the street o a bar called “Charlie’s”, where good pal Chuck Swaim was doing karaoke with a bunch of his buddies. He looked great, sounded great, and it made me very happy to see him, rocked in the bosom of his community.
