The Longest Meow by Bobby Bare, Jr
11 songs in 11 hours. That's what happened on March 26th, 2006. After
wood-shedding for weeks with some of the most innovative musicians from
a vibrant southeastern talent pool, Bobby and friends knocked out The Longest Meow in one arduous session that he calls "the most fun I have ever had with music in one day."
Joining Bobby at 12:32 pm that day in Nashville was a core band of guitarist Carl Broemel, drummer Patrick Hallahan (both of My Morning Jacket), and Mike Grimes on bass. Add to this contributions from Carey Kotsionis, Doni Schroader (...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead), Corey Younts (Justin Townes Earle), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Deanna Varagona (Lambchop), Ben Martin (Clem Snide) and producer Brad Jones. Add it all up and you've got a band of 11 that recorded 11 gelastic tracks in one 11-hour day.
