Jefferson Steelflex and his Neptune Society - Arkansas Gas Card

from by The Compound Studio



The first meeting of what would become Marc Ford and The Neptune Blues Club. As Marc Ford and I had been making records together for a few years we had also gotten into the habit of getting a little workout by rocking some guitar and drums during breaks. He began to ask about other players that I might know and I set about calling on a few of my favorites from my checkered past. On this occasion it is the first time Marc is meeting Bill Barrett and Stephen Hodges (the new guys). We plug in and play- making it up as we go- and create "Arkansas Gas Card" now a song that is a staple of any Neptune's concert. You can even hear engineer Jeff Lewis twisting the mic-pre's (I know the crackle of that 1081 anywhere). Historic.
