eric overmyer


you found it, brother. the audio track from this video is the recording we use at the end of episode two — the only way it was ever released was on an import cd/dvd release of a live concert at montreux, I think. nice work.



Thanks, Eric…

Actually, thanks to Google on that one, took me a bit of looking though.



After Annie and Sonny Play “When The Saints…” there is a scene where McAlary and another D.J. are talking.There is a song in the background and i was wondering which one was when i found this page.Here you miss it.Then i had to listen better and found it;
-“When the saints go marching in” by Dr. John with Mavis Staples from “N’awlinz: Dis, Dat Or D’Udda”
