ok so i uploaded this to soundcloud and it didn't work so im trying this. the shitty thing is i wrote out a few notes to accompany it but now they are gone and im so tired right now and lazy. i'll do bullet points i guess.

- three sets of voices appear here that have no ties to florida or arkansas to my knowledge. they are the inmates of folsom prison, the crowd at capitol record's hollywood studio, and richard manuel/rick danko from the band.

- the band cheat is due to the fact that levon helm, the band's drummer, is from elaine arkansas. his drumming technique on 'i shall be released' is integral to the beauty of that song, specifically his clever idea to strum his snare wires with his fingers to give the allusion of an american drum roll.

- all the music here is stuff i like. so tom petty and jim morrison are titantic musicians hailing from florida but don't appear here because i don't like the doors or the heartbreakers. and same for evanescence.

- the two bands that it pained me to leave off were teddy and the frat girls and harry pussy, two noise/punk outfits from the late 70s early 80s. the are probably my two favorite bands from florida but their music was too aggressive to find a place.

- i wont include the track listing here just in case there are songs you guys dont know and want to play a game of 'guess which state'.

- the mixing and rendering is pretty bad, i didn't even equalize the sound because my computer was being so slow. unfortunately i'm not very good at mixing so the transitions may seem a little jarring, sorry about that.

i hope you guys have some fun with this if you find time. if not dont worry about it, i find this stuff fun to do late at night anyway.

- wes
