Rose, Jack / Glenn Jones - The Things That We Used To Do DVD (Mega Blowout Sale)

Well, with Jack's death late last year, we lost a major guitaring talent. This DVD was in the final stages of production when Jack died and it is presented just as it was envisioned by him and Glenn.

"Rose & Jones influenced one another, sharing many similarities in their styles, but also sharing just as many marked differences. Collectively, their body of work offers the most purely distilled representation of the style as it has transformed over the years. The Things That We Used to Do is a celebration of their art, a moving picture snapshot of two players whose passionate devotion to the solo steel-string tradition is equally important today as their mentors Fahey & Basho were in their lifetimes. Shot expressly for this project in a loft in Brooklyn is a very special, intimate performance DVD of Jack Rose & Glenn Jones, capturing the artists playing solo & together with gorgeously shot visual lyricism. The takes are live, but the performances are not in front of an audience; three cameras, two musicians, and a home transformed into a studio for a day created the perfect backdrop for the players & their very personal music. The result is an astounding, one-of-a-kind document of two leading lights of solo acoustic steel string guitar music in their prime, turning in stellar performances. Includes a lengthy interview of the artists together, conducted by Byron Coley, and bonus live footage of Rose & Jones shot in concert at Plays & Players, Philadelphia, PA, 3/22/09. Beautifully packaged in a cardstock amary DVD sleeve, featuring liner notes & Jack Rose eulogy by Glenn Jones."
