Bottom Line Archive Series: In Their Own 2
This is volume 2. "In Their Own Words volume 1 & volume 2: A Bunch of Songwriters Sittin' Around Singing Volumes 1 & 2" features 15 artists performing and talking about one of their own songs or a song they wish they'd written, unplugged and acoustic. Artists include RIC OCASEK, JOEY RAMONE, GRAHAM PARKER, RICHARD THOMPSON, DION, JIMMY WEBB, LUCINDA WILLIAMS and SHAWN COLVIN, among others. Hosted and co-created by noted radio personality VIN SCELSA, these two-disc sets provide an unrehearsed and unforgettable glimpse into the process of songwriting and performing, recorded from 1990-1993. Bottom Line co-founder/curator Allan Pepper says he's got recordings of more than 1,000 shows from the Greenwich Village nightclub, which always booked an eclectic mix of Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk and other forms of music. Pepper says the label is currently having conversations with representatives from many of the acts.
