Samuel & DC Cardwell cover “Four Seasons In One Day” by Crowded House

This is a complete version of this song from one of our first live webcasts in April 2014. You may have seen a snippet of it if you watched the “highlights” video.

Merry Christmas! Plus new videos and a gift for you (OK, it’s just an mp3, but hey…) [Newsletter 24 Dec 2012]

DC’s cover of the famous, and very moving Christmas carol, “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day” which he just finished yesterday. Actually, Samuel did half of the work – he plays bass and drums and also the amazing guitar solo. The aim was to make it sound like The Byrds and whether or not that was successful overall, Samuel’s solo is a dead ringer for Roger McGuinn!
