LiveWillie! Wristbands Rock!

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

 

I’ve been taping Willie and the Dead concerts for years, and the quality of my recordings were always hit or miss (mostly miss.)  Or I would befriend someone in the taper section of a Grateful Dead concert, and barter something (usually pot) for a copy of their tape, with, again, no guarantee on the quality. 

So wow, what a thrill to go home from Willie’s Choteau and Gorge 4th of July concerts with a sound board recording of the shows I just saw!  It’s amazing, really.   Starting with the shows on Willie Nelson’s Canadian tour, LiveWillie! was pre-selling wristbands with a flash storage device on one end, which you then picked up immediately after the show.  The wristband cost $25.00 each and had the entire show you just saw, plus a pre-recorded version of Willie’s new song, “A Peaceful Solution.”  

To be honest, I was a little intimidated by the device when I got home Thursday and realized I was really happy I had the flash stick, but that I didn’t know where I was supposed to stick it.  But I stuck it in the hole on my computer where it fits (a usb port, as it turns out), went to Windows Media Center, uploaded it and saved it to my hard drive.  Then I burned a cd, and downloaded it to my ipod.  Cool, huh?

I was on the same flight from Great Falls to Seattle with Chris Collins, who is Rachel Fowler’s partner in the LiveWillie! project, and does the recording/copying after the show.  I asked how he did it so fast, and he said there are lots of slots, and he can make them very fast, and can keep up with the demand at any show.  The show is recorded on one long track, too.  He said that Willie Nelson is the first person to use this new technology, but that it is getting popular now. 

After the concert on the 4th at the Gorge, I helped hand out the wristbands to fans who had pre-purchased them before the show.  (Rachel had a special bus to catch.) And man, everyone was so excited to get to take home a recording of the Willie show we just saw.  The line moved quickly, too, so no one had to wait long.  A runner would bring us 25 or so at a time from where Chris was making the recordings, and we would exchange them for the tickets fans received when they purchased the wristband earlier.  

Now I am sitting here getting goosebumps listening to the Choteau show.  It sounds like you’re at a live concert!  Better sound, really, it’s off the sound board, so you don’t have to listen to a recording of the drunk guy next you singing along with Willie on Poncho and Lefty, like I do on my recordings. 

My only complaint is that the flash disk I got from the Choteau show did not include Willie singing “Red Headed Stranger”, which was such a treat to get to hear live again in concert.  Maybe not enough room on the disk, or?  That’ s my only complaint, though.

Way to go, Willie!  So high tech.  Good job, Rachel and Chris.  and thanks!

LiveWillie! currently sells live shows at their site at www.livewillie.com. 

Hats, Bandanas, Waves and Kisses — What Next? Now Willie Nelson Tosses a Concert to the Crowd!

Monday, June 25th, 2007

 

Starting with his Canadian tour, Willie Nelson has made his concerts available to purchase and take home with you after the show, via a wristband/flashstick.

JK, the lucky fan who got to travel across Canada and follow Willie’s show,  reported that in Regina, Willie wore one of the flashticks/wristbands with the Winnipeg show recorded on it, along with a video of him singing Peaceful Solution, and then he threw it out into the crowd!  How cool is that?  I asked him about how the flashsticks work, and he said this:

Re: the flash drives:   It is based on demand. A guy would come running up to the booth with a dozen drives, the webmistress would sell them, the guy would come back with a dozen more and ask if she needed another batch. Not sure how many they sold – I was in the second row (WOO) so it took quite a while to get to the booth, which was in the back of the arena. The nice thing about this system is that you don’t have to worry about them running out.

It was all one track, so there was no editing involved. I assume they record a plain ol’ .wav file of the concert, encode it as an MP3 (should take 10 minutes or so – maybe less if they’ve got a really fast computer dedicated to this, and there’s no reason they wouldn’t), and then it’s just a matter of copying the file to as many flash drives as required.

Also on the wristband was a video of Willie singing Peaceful Solution. They could pre-load those onto all the wristbands to save time.

During the show, Willie wore a wristband with the Winnipeg show on it, and he tossed it to the crowd at the end.
