For the most part, our expeditions into the wild (read: the most mundane cities you could ever go to) are too filled with fact hunting to really spend time documenting the process itself. If you saw our Downriver Revival documentary (comes free with both the CD and LP versions of 026 Local Customs: Downriver Revival) it’s the rare occasion when silent observers (Ben Poster, Kyle Obriot, and Zach Goheen) were willing to tag along during the generally endless tedium of these sort of trips (that’s a whole week boiled down to one 30 minute segment, people) to capture a few gems. This latest trip to Cleveland was no different: lots of hustling up and down the East Side, not much time to stop and smell (or photograph) the roses. But we did get a few shots of some of our new friends. The “Tribute to the Boddie Record Label” poster (not the official title) that we made came in before the trip, so we were able to share it with some of the folks involved. Here’s the daughter of the late Frankie Pighee, Pat Pighee, showing off her new wall hanging:
And the illustrious Harvey Hall:
One of these comes free with every copy of the Local Customs: Pressed At Boddie LP, available for one day only: April 16th, 2011 (I guess that happens to be Record Store Day… who knew?) Visitors to our pop-up store on that same day can also grab one there.
