"Ramp was originally released in 1991 and continues the program of Giant Sand reissues from Fire Fidelity. For Ramp, Giant Sand ushered in several new members to the fold, 'including young bassist Joey burns, the stunning voice of 74-year-old Pappy Allen, and our sweet, sweet friend Victoria Williams. We had begun recording in Tucson and finished it back in Venice, CA at Mad Dog Studio again...the first track was produced by Dusty Wakeman and featured the late great Duane Jarvis.' Howe describes that the experiment with Ramp was 'to record an electric song live in the studio and have the pre-recorded acoustic bridge be slotted in by DAT machine while then starting up again with the electric part live at the same pace as before the DAT take was applied with its different beat. What made this tricky was the mechanical delay of the play button on the state of the art day machine...you can hear the result in 'Warm Storm.'" Includes download code.
