The Jimmy C - Project E.G.O.

The Jimmy C - Project E.G.O. (2005)

The Debut album from The Jimmy C. Recorded in 2005 on 4-Track Cassette (using primitive computer software to make "reduction mixes" then back onto the 4-Track), this collection of Guitar Instrumentals with Blusey-Rock/funk/folk/punk/soundtrack tunes presents an eclectic sound of a Band still deciding weather they want to be instrumental or not. It's a few tentative steps forward in song writing for The Jimmy C, breaking away from the safe (mostly instrumental) music of early recordings and heading towards a much more "songy" sound. With 6 instrumentals and 7 and a half vocal tracks (track 12 is only half a song) the emphasis is still firmly on the instrumental side of The Jimmy C. Notable tracks are: "Deep Holy Love" with it's Prince meets Beck in a car accident Jesus-love funk, "Black Suits On The Beach" sounds like 1965 fuzzy Mosrite Ventures and "Gone Are The Days", a Calexico (ish) look at slightly depressing American Folk. This experimental debut surprised The Jimmy C more than anyone else and gave them the confidence to finally show other people (and the world) what they could do.
