Greetings all.

I have to start out by saying WOW!
Last night was – for a number of reasons that I will soon enumerate – a serious gas.
First off, a HUGE thank you to DJ Prestige and the entire Asbury Park 45 Sessions fam for a very nice birthday surprise, including a 45 shaped cake for my 45th birthday. Thanks to all who stepped up with birthday wishes.
Second, we all got to meet the mighty Soul Chef, aka Vincent of Fufu Stew (and his lovely wife) who dropped a very hot set, as did Providence, RI’s own DJ Save1 who had us all adding lines to our want lists.
A big shout out also to Soulstrutter Big Stacks, a recent arrival here in NJ who fell by with his wife and some friends to groove on the sounds (and groove they did).
This was perhaps the hottest 45 Sessions to date, with an outstanding turnout (best yet), the advent of our live (and archived) webcast via JamNow, which you will see (when you download) worked like a charm. If yu scroll through the list at JamNow you’ll see everyone’s sets archived individually.
A big part of the success of this inaugural broadcast was the presence – as emcee- of radio legend Bob Shannon (part of the 45 Sessions fam from the git go), who announced the whole evening, and even dropped a one-song microset which you can hear at the end of my own set.
It was just an amazing night, and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of something this cool.
Just a few set related notes: There are a couple of minor glitches, with some human error (by me, of course) in the first transition (watch that fader son), and an odd needle jump during the Geraldo Pino track (not sure what happened there). There are also a couple of volume problems, which I take full responsibility for. All in all the JamNow feed is great and I look forward to the next 45 Sessions, which will be further enhanced.
So, dig the mix and I’ll see you all soon.

    Great set Larry! And it looks like you all had a lot of fun out there. I love the idea of the online archive at JamNow. Is there a way to download the other sets from that site or is it just streaming. Pres had a great list of tunes I would love to slap on the ol’ ipod.

  5. tomhavers Says:

    Check that… I see Prestige add his live set as well, but I guess the question still stands for future archived shows.

  6. fleamarketfunk Says:

    for now, it looks like the sets are just archived, with no download. i do not know if a download function is in the works (or the legal ramafications which entail). however, if you use audacity, you can actually record it as it streams, then clean up the parts you want to keep. that’s not too bad (that’s what i did). enjoy my live set tom.

  7. djsave1 Says:

    Larry it was nice to meet you and the rest of the asbury park crew, thanks for the kind words you said about me in your blog. Hopefully i’ll be out their again in the winter time with some new 7’s.

  8. funky16corners Says:

    Great to meet you too. Send me your set list when you get a chance and I’ll add it to the post.

  9. Jason X Says:

    Hey Larry,
    Happy 45th by the way.
    The Asbury night looked like a success! I wish we had more nights like that in Canada…Hmmm…..maybe I need to organize something. I’m Diggin’ it!

  10. John Says:

    Great set, Larry. That’s the coolest version of Get Carter I’ve ever heard.

    And Happy Birthday. Welcome to the 45 club.
