Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer - "Little Blue Egg." On Red House Records
Tracy Grammer discovered the tracks for Little Blue Egg during an archiving project in the summer of 2010, a full eight years after Carter's death. Rescuing the original ADAT tapes from a moldy basement where they were stored, she discovered the tapes in pristine condition. As she digitized the tapes in real-time, Tracy pored over old studio notes about the recordings. "Tears flowed, I laughed out loud, memories flooded back," Grammer remembers. "It felt like a miracle to hear Dave's voice -- and our voices, together -- singing old songs that sounded new again, along with others I had forgotten about entirely." With several of these tracks made as rough demos, Dave Carter sings "like nobody's watchin'," his most emotionally unfettered recorded work. Dave and Tracy. Something good.
