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

Download link at the bottom of the post.

This is my first proper album. By proper I mean good enough to share with people. I played some of these songs to some friends and they liked it! It's not as complete, competent or accomplished as "Glamour & Fame" but it's still very well liked (though only 50-80 copies were made & given to friends). I was young, not the most accomplished multi-instrumentalist (I'm still not) but for a drummer this is a surprisingly good album of real songs (not just 45 mins of drumming...), sometimes you listen back to stuff you recorded when you were starting out & grimace at the naivety and childish crappiness of it. I can listen to this and actually enjoy it - it's not my best work but it was a good start. Some friends say it's their favorite of all my albums... thanks a bunch! I mean, have you even listened to "Glamour & Fame"????!

Here's a review:

"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" is a Calexico(ish) look at slightly depressing American Folk music. 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."
