Beecake at ORC - Videos
I'm adding these one at a time; I think there's about five total. It takes a LONG time to upload these, for some reason (I really didn't think they were THAT long!), so it may take a while to download them as well. Actually, if you could let me know, I'd appreciate it - thanks! Warning - may cause motion sickness; I was in the third row and had to use the tele option to avoid all the heads, and didn't have anything to rest my hands on. Hopefully it's still viewable. And, of course, there's the occasional grip adjustment, where the world tumbles all over the place - *L*!

[ETA: I highly recommend "I am Sorry" and "Lost Direction", for sound quality and "you'll be humming it all day" worthiness. I also love "All You Ever Wanted", but it's difficult to hear the vocals in that one.

Beecake 1 - 1945 ("I am Sorry"): http://www.yousendit.com/download/T2dlNU1CSU8wZ2swTVE9PQ
(NOTE: Sorry, I've run into a stumbling block. Even though I upgraded, YouSendIt says I exceeded my limit already, and it wouldn't send me the shortcut to this upload. Technical difficulties. I'm close to checkout time, so I'll have to continue this tomorrow. Sorry, guys! I'll repeat this whole post when I start adding new uploads. Feedback is appreciated on how the one video above sounds and looks to you - thanks!)
Beecake 2 - 1946 ("Friends and Lovers"): http://download.yousendit.com/C0088C3E7F69EAEB
Beecake 3 - 1947 ("Lost Direction") - has Billy on harmonica, and listen to that fantastic harmony at the very end! His bandmates are great, and great guys to boot: http://download.yousendit.com/844D86366619D41E
Beecake 4 - 1948 (intro to "Drunk" - I got this taped the night before, so I skipped it this time, in favor of doing stills): http://download.yousendit.com/1C5381985FC4B4EA
Beecake 5 - 1949 ("Get Myself Arrested" - a cover) - or, as Billy says it, in his best Sean Connery impersonation, "Get Myself Arreshted" - *G* - with solo singing part by Rick, the bass player, and a drum solo by John. A silly song, with mock-tough Billy: http://download.yousendit.com/A8C1DD7570772F44 (this one is a ZIP file; please let me know if that causes problems!)
Beecake 6 - 1950 ("All You Ever Wanted") - Only the second time they've performed it; brand-new. Sounds better in person than on video. Has the wonderful lines "He's building an empire, and breaking her heart" and "All you ever wanted, all you ever needed is here in my arms". It sounds to me like the battle between ambition and love, the pull between giving all your heart, soul, time and energy into a career, vs. being there for the ones you love - something any actor or musician has to deal with: http://download.yousendit.com/212EB63F31797DE0
Beecake 7 - 1951 - a snippet of "Lilac Wine"; again, because this has been taped before (and it's a cover) I didn't tape it all: http://download.yousendit.com/F505FF9E18823371
Beecake 8 - 1952 - a snippet of "Rip It Up" - (there's an excellent version from a TV appearance, and I didn't know if I'd run out of time on the video): http://www.yousendit.com/download/T2djK3BMTEQ0b0EwTVE9PQ

So, these are all the songs from the concert except:

- The first two (the second of which was the song from "Save Angel Hope", a reggae-style song), because I thought I had turned the video-recording on, and hadn't (d'oh!)
- "Drunk", because we recorded it at the Hotel Cafe
- The rest of "Lilac Wine", because it was recorded at RingCon, and it's a cover
- The rest of "Rip it Up", because there's a good live recording of that from their TV appearance
- "Soul Swimming" - again, saving recording time.

What else was there? I think at that point I moved to the center of the aisle for more stills. Anybody remember the last, or last few, songs?

So, there you have it - at least half of the Beecake set. And, may I say, they were just having a GREAT time there, and much more outgoing than at the shorter Hotel Cafe set - probably due to being silly all dayy, and, by that time, pretty much "knowing" the audience. What a fantastic band! I hope you enjoy these videos and that they encourage you to follow the band and buy their CD's. Thanks.

To bad - my internet connection is to slow to load it down. I gave Spouse the link and asked him to load it down tomorrow from his work-pc.

I'm very curious ;)

Dang. I wish I knew a better way to do this. I'm going to have to do a post to ask for suggestions. For example, should I ZIP this or not? Idon't know.

*cough* Downloading the vids...even though I was there...

Sadly, whatever I recorded had such terrible quality, I could barely hear any harmony or melody at all. Thanks for these!

That's too bad... hard to predict which cameras will work best, and it probably depends a lot on location. Happy you're using these!

Isn't that a great song? That and "I am Sorry" just keep running through my head.

*G* Thanks - glad somebody else likes it! It was one of my very first, from that tour of Scottish Shorts he did in Canada.

Oh gosh, it's such a awful feeling to watch all those vids, hear Billy talking, people out there laughing and you don't understand a damn thing :)

*L*! I know what you mean. If I get a chance, maybe I can transcribe some of the silliness. But the bit about "Really?!" was, I think, some Scottish/British in-joke, probably referring to some TV show, that only a few in the audience got (and that didn't include me!). But it would be great to have the lyrics to all the songs.

First of all THANK YOU. I used to be really into live music, all my friends were musicians, worked for musicians, etc, but it got too expensive and I had to "quit," so this really brings back the experience for me.

Question, though--there is a full clip somewhere of Billy doing "Lilac Wine?" It's one of my favourite Jeff Buckley songs, and the clip you have here is amazing; would love to see a full if it's available!

I know what you mean - but I'm finding that you can still be "into" the music scene and not have it be too expensive, if you go to the small places - *G*.

Check out Essential Billy (I have a link to it in a later post); I think somebody may have gotten it. I believe that broksgurl (don't know her exact name because it ends with a number; she may be on beizy f-list, though) did the whole concert and is working on breaking it up by song and uploading it.

And somewhere out in the ether is the recording of Billy singing it by himself at RingCon in Germany about a year ago, I believe. That was the one I was referring to above.

You know what? Go to bboyd, which is an LJ for Billy fans, and ask, and somebody will upload that earlier one for you if you ask, I bet!
