Silver Laughter Does The Beatles in Calgary

Silver Laughter 1977 - Ken, Paul, Jon and Mick

Silver Laughter 1977 – Ken, Paul, Jon and Mick

“I Want To Hold Your Hand”

I already posted another version of this song from the Port Byron Beatles Tribute, but this one from Calgary has much more energy as you will hear. We recorded this in July of 1977 with Jon and Ken on guitar, Paul on drums and me on bass. Jon and I do the vocals with (I think) Ken jumping in here and there.

The photo is another from the 1977 session we did in Carroll, Iowa at The County Seat. I am not sure if these were taken before or after our Canadian tour. Hey, there’s that darn hanging plant again!

Side Note: I converted this cut to MP3 since the WAV files take a long time to download and the built in MP3 player for WordPress seems to be much more efficient. So even though the quality supposedly isn’t there, I cannot hear a big difference in the two file formats.
