Live at the Mecca Cafe: Volume Two

by The Co-Dependents

This was recorded at the same time as the first Co-Dependents recording, but released a few years later. The overwhelming demand for more music by the Co-Dees resulted in releasing these tunes, which weren’t selected for the first C.D. because of things like feedback, broken strings etc. However, this was a bit of a blessing in disguise. Technological advances in recording and mastering were happening so fast at this time in history that these recordings sounded even better than the first ones! I sang Chuck Berry’s “You Never Can Tell” (on speed, apparently), John Lennon’s “Ballad of John and Yoko” and Clyde McPhatter’s “Don’t Let Go”. Incidently, “I Got a Woman” is actually “Mean Woman Blues” by Roy Orbison. Somehow Miles was able to cut out the enormous clap of thunder in the middle of “Slow Down” A worthy follow up to volume one and a testament to Calgary’s greatest rock band.
