Hunter C. + Ian Williams, Live @ Altamont UT


My cousin Jana’s daughter Hunter singing “Put Your Records On” accompanied by my brother Ian. I’d never heard the original version by Corinne Bailey Ray before recording Hunter singing it.  She’s 14 years old, but I think she really has a fresh take on it — she sings it in her own voice, without aping Ray’s mannerisms.

Recorded with the Zoom H4 hand-held.  I had 2 takes to work with and comped a few bits from the 1st take into the second — mostly where Ian invented some strange chords.  Given that the 2 takes were the 5th and 6th time he’d played the song total, he did nicely.  A little EQ and Reverb and Compression, and there you have it.
