Field Recordings Volume One: Long Hot Summer is available for free download here.
Field Recordings started out as a sort of sketchbook: I was sitting out on the porch recording songs with my cell phone so I wouldn't forget them. I listened to a whole bunch of them together, and kinda liked the way they sounded, so I decided to go ahead and put them out there for anybody who wants them. Also included are a handful of recent poems.
Most of this was recorded late at night, with crazy humidity and ridiculous temperatures. I think that comes through pretty clearly.
I'm liking this: though the recording quality is pretty bad, and the playing isn't spectacular, I think it's a nice sketchbook.
If you are interested in keeping track of Hoosier Pete, I do make a token attempt to keep the HP MySpace page up to date, so that would be one way to do it.
