If you want to know how it sounds you can Listen Here

This nice little tune is called Sally written and performed by a band called The Punch And Judy Show. I just played the harmonica tracks in the studio……and well OK it was not recorded with this cheesy little amp! As far as I remember I used a Fender Twin and a Hughes & Kettner Tubeman….

I shot this in the 90s when I used to play the Blues-Harp a lot and did B&W Photography almost exclusively…. If I only had such a good and affordable scanner these days I think I never went digital !!

BTW I still have that B&W-Blues but I decided to leave my film-tank on stand-by. When If not yet is the time to shot colour film……..colour-films and good labs are fading away……….
