Tim and Jim Live Concert Recording Series. Show #1
Hi, and thanks for your interest!
Shortly after Tim Ellis's passing last March I received an email from Keith, a longtime good friend of the Tim and Jim Show.
Keith used to record our concerts for his own listening amusement. He recorded direct from the outputs of our PA system into his hard disc player.
In Keith's email, he explained that he had recorded some 60 hours of our concerts. About 20 full-length, three-hour shows.
What? The? Eff?
I had no idea.
He played me some of it.
Because the recordings came directly from our PA exactly the way Tim mixed us live, it sounds like being a Tim and Jim show. Alarmingly so. If you turn it up and shut your eyes, you're there. It's pretty incredible.
Now let me tell you about this grand experiment I'm doing here (with the blessings of Tim's wife, Susan, I'd like to add)
Because of the size of these shows, and a few other considerations and minor complications, I can't put them up online. So these shows will be available privately through me, as downloads only.
I plan on releasing these shows one at a time, for as long as the material holds out.

I'm so glad to be able to share this music with you.
Tim and I were never much good at archiving our live shows so I'm so very glad and grateful to Keith for doing it. He has accidentally become our sole historian and archivist.
And thank you for your time -
