Bow to this...
- "Champagne Jam"
I know a lot of people dont like Ween because they are a "joke band" or because they are "above your head", but this one we can all agree on. I dont post often here, so when I do it better be worth it right...FUNKY CORRECT!
Here is the explaination from Dean Ween himself:
A few years back we were asked by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross from tv's awesome "Mr. Show" to record a version of Champagne Jam by the Atlanta Rhythm Section. It was to be used in their full length movie "Run Ronny Run" which was based on a skit about a redneck named Ronnie Dobbs from Mr. Show. After a lot of internal bickering with the studio the movie was eventually released straight to video. I saw a rough cut of the film that had a snippet of the song in the background so I'm assuming it made the final cut as well. We cut the track with a bunch of our talented friends from the area at our manager's studio out in Ringoes, NJ. The personnel is as follows: Gene Ween-vocals Dean Ween-Guitar Dave Dreiwitz-bass Sim Cain-drums (Claude Coleman was living in London at this time) Ed Wilson-Guitar Garland Lamb-vocals Glenn McClelland-keyboards and clavinet. Greg Frey produced and engineered the track. While staying pretty loyal to the original version we had a great time with this song and cut the basic tracks pretty much live.
You can only find this song on the Ween
webpage. Maybe on the soundtrack to RRR, if they even have one!
