Inspired by a performance by the Guillemots on the Take-Away Show... I wondered what I might do.

The equation goes...

et + a reasonably quiet corner of a train station + a taylor acoustic + a Ronstadt tune + a Macbook pinhole mic = This number.

The Acoustic Sessions.

et, wow man...the fact that you did this in a train station is amazing, and on a pinhole mic. Yikes, you just scare me man. Great singing and tone and emotion to your vocal delivery. The guitar sounds great. Nice picking work my friend.

I danced with Linda Ronstadt when I was but 7 years old. My family lived in Princeton, where she attended university. A neighbour was a famous historian, and his son was haveing a 21st, and he went to Princeton too. So there she was at this 21st party. And there was I. I'd never met a girl who could sing as well as she. Thanks for the memory restoration.

I love your stuff. This is intimate. As bright as that light and ceiling in the picture.

How unique! What an ambience the location makes. Fitting. Naked. Yet, warm. Well, your voice can warm an igloo. The Taylor guitar is sounding wonderful, too. (I have a 12 string Taylor.)

Sounds like you collected an audience. Any money collected in the open guitar case. smiley

Good job. Breathy and sincere. Nice tone and picking. Your rendition peels back the glitter and reveals the darkly growing roots of the work.

I love it love it love it love it when you go 'wild' and do these acoustics, sort of 'wild' unfinished, unthought, spur of the moment kind of things (at least that's the feeling). Your other more polished songs showed how good you are technically, these ones show how great you are as a person, as a feeling communicator. Touching. This is the etgilles side I love the most.

I have to admit that out of all of your wonderful music and productions, the beauty of the live performance and sparsity makes it my favorite of yours. The guy who is coughing probably having a cigarette listening to you is an awesome slice of life in there.

just when i thought you could only continue to mesmerize me with each and every effort you present, you go & create something like this!

not only am i entirely bound (mind, heart, body, spirit) to this song, but i am simply floored at the simplicity of genius behind this project.

again, et, you inspire me to reach ever forward & dare to grasp the things i always told my self were not within my reach...merci beaucoup!

The emotions of a voice and a guitar, the man versus the machine, heart and soul as weapons. So we remember what is music. Grazie infinite et.

what rains nostalgic for me, is that i got my start in the subways of Boston. picturing you down below in that murky setting put me right back with you. i love the person coughing... man, so many memories. that old lady... the sad businessman crying... the drunks... getting mugged for $3 dollars...

your voice is so freaking wonderful. the depth resonates with life experience and carries the intimacy of this fine song into deeper regions than intially i expected. the guitar is simple and clean, yet permits your vocal to really affect the overall performance so well.

a truly inspiring and remarkable piece of music. i am surprised it took me this long to find it, but i am very happy i did. thank you!

and yeah... this song IS dope! smiley

i'm looking forward to what you do next!
