Jim Morris the Live Guy
The Live Guy For years I have been asked, cajoled, wheedled and prodded to do a live acoustic CD. After many, many, many, months of inertia, I recorded several shows at a variety of venues during the summer and fall of 2007. Some shows were big, some were small, some were quiet, and some were noisy. Just like real life. This is the way it was from the very beginning: just me and an acoustic guitar. I play with my band, I do duos and trios occasionally, but the one constant in my singer-songwriter career has been the shows with me and the guitar. I hope this recording captures the true experience.One other thing has been constant throughout my singer-songwriter career: At least once a week someone says to me, "Jim Morrison, I thought you were dead." It really wasn't that clever the first time I heard it. For now, I'm not the dead guy. I'm the live guy.
