Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Strum and Strummer

Maybe you’re like me and you can’t get enough of those “isolated tracks” on YouTube. I’ve posted some of them before, such as the vocals on “Gimme Shelter,” and they never fail to wow me.

Here’s the isolated vocal track on “Rock The Casbah” by The Clash. Listen to Joe Strummer wail. He does not phone it in here, kids.

It would be nice to think they did this in one take. I’d hate to imagine Joe’s vocal cords shredding to tiny pink ribbons on take 2, take 3, take 4…

Moral of the story? Always give your best!
