*** A Team Dirty South Recording ***
This was John Bell playing a couple of acoustic tracks on the Solar Stage Sunday afternoon and talking about solar power, saving the planet and other topics. There is a fair bit of crowd noise in this one, but that was expected. Since it was a conversation sandwiched between two songs, the levels were up and down. The music portion is very nice, but the discussion portion is sort of low and the crowd noise gets in the way at times. I really didn’t feel like tracking the individual questions during the discussion. Sorry.
