Paul Kitchen | When I Fall Apart | Live From the inSync Asylum Video

Paul Kitchen | When I Fall Apart Live From the inSync Asylum. The 27th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’. I chose to do When I Fall Apart, originally from the 1987 album ‘No Poetry Allowed’, and later from ‘A Matter of Time’ – the guy in the video has the year wrong!. The song was written under the influence, and that’s all I’m going to say – but it’s a cool song, and one of those you have no idea where it came from. As on the other videos from this series, I did the take sans headphones or monitoring the guitar, which contributes to the stripped down mood. If you like it please share, and check out the studio versions on my website.

Paul Kitchen | Some of Shelly’s Blues | Live From the inSync Asylum Video

Paul Kitchen | Some of Shelly’s Blues Live From the inSync Asylum. For the 22nd date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’, I chose to do ‘Some of Shelly’s Blues’ – a song written by Michael Nesmith, who passed away a couple days ago. I was a long time fan, and this is from one of my favorite albums of his – ‘Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash’. This was definitely a spur of the moment thing for me – I downloaded a lyric/tab sheet off the web, and didn’t bother to listen to his version first. I see a couple things i did wrong now, but the vibe is there. Hope you like it. RIP Michael Nesmith.

Paul Kitchen | End of the Line | Live From the inSync Asylum Video

Paul Kitchen | End of the Line Live From the inSync Asylum. For the 21st date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’, I chose to do another song from the ‘Lost in Babylon’ album. Written in 1989. Once again I recorded the song without monitoring the guitar or vocals, with no headphones. Interesting to do it that way, but i have to listen carefully. Interesting side note: I bought this IYV guitar a couple weeks ago from the Amazon warehouse for $125 I think. Someone had returned it, supposedly scratched up. I tuned it up and started playing it – nothing else. So far so good.

Paul Kitchen | Spin | Live From the inSync Asylum Video

Paul Kitchen | Spin Live From the inSync Asylum. For the 20th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’, I chose to do this song from the ‘Lost in Babylon‘ album. My PC struggles with recording two webcams and a Cubase session all at the same time. So, to conserve resources I didn’t monitor the guitar, just hearing my voice and the IYV Guitar in the room – monitors, no headphones. Interesting to hear it later when run thru my processing. This has always been a special song to me. So cool to be playing it for the first time in over 30 years. Hope you like it. https://bit.ly/3p6UD3y

Paul Kitchen | Waiting to Fly Live From the inSync Asylum Video

Paul Kitchen | Waiting to Fly Live From the inSync Asylum. For the 19th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’, I chose to do this song from the ‘And We Dream’ album. In all honesty I had a hell of a time getting to something I could share, and after many takes this is what I came up with. My hair did not survive, as I apparently tried to pull it out.. I started with the 8 track tape recording, detected the tempo, and ended up keeping only one guitar track – my melody maker recorded in ‘1992 or so. I added keyboard bass and keys, as well as banging out the beat on my desk – my new Cajon! Also due to my issue with headphones, tinitus, vertigo and the rest, I had to just play along with the speakers. So as Elvis said, “let it bleed”. All in all, this is one of my favorite songs that I’ve written, and hopefully you will enjoy it.
