I can't explain how surreal it is to record someone who's released albums that help shape the way you understand production (Pack up the Cats and Here Comes the Zoo) so I won't try to. Instead I'll talk about the session. Scott Lucas of Local H came by to perform a solo acoustic set of our humble requests. Because the songs were not the radio hits, and because they were solo acoustic, it's easier to see why Local H is more important than a lot of other bands in the same genre and why they've survived longer than a lot of their peers. The fact is that underneath the loud guitars, the production and the radio hits, Scott Lucas is just a killer songwriter. And the songs stand up on their own as acoustic incarnations. They are releasing a "Best Of", which I would advise against getting and instead purchasing their entire catalog. While their hits are good, the wealth of Local H lies in their deep cuts. And if you have money left over buy me their newest LP, 12 Angry Months, since I didn't have it and my favorite song from the session is from that album (Hand to Mouth). Local H played the first concert I ever went to, and it was amazing working with Scott again.
