When an artist who I respect asks me to do something, I usually comply. On a night when I barely arrived in time to record their set at Mercury Lounge (here), Megafaun’s Phil Cook informed me that I should definitely record Doug Paisley’s set. I quickly finished setting up the rig and immediately hit record to capture Doug’s set — and I’m quite happy that I did. While singer-songwriters with sweet voices and narrrative lyrics are all too common, Doug Paisley is clearly a special case — his natural manner and authenticity immediately strikes the listener and draws them in. At Mercury last week, Doug had the tough task of opening the set, on a Saturday night, at a late show. But the crowd quickly responded and for the next 30 thirty minutes were strikingly attentive. Doug’s set consisted of numbers from this two albums on No Quarter Records, including 2010’s Constant Companion. We have chosen to stream “What About Us?”, from his self-titled debut, and a song that also appeared on Mojo Magazine’s “New Harvest” compilation.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Megafaun capture. The volume on stage and in the PA was quite low, so the boosting of levels in post introduced a slight hum into the recording. Otherwise the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Stream “What About Us”:
