live album ...Saturday Night, 'Round
Ten was released in September 1999 to celebrate You
Am I's tenth anniversary.
The tracks for the album were culled from
three gigs recorded over the "Technicolour
Weekend" in July 1999 in a cold and bleak Casa
del Resaca warehouse in Richmond, which You Am I
tore apart at the seams.
...Saturday Night, 'Round Ten
was also the first You Am I release featuring David
Lane on lead guitar, who was previously transcribing
guitar tabs for You Am I Central.
The band took the occaison to rework some
of their classics. The funk workout intro and breakdown
to Minor Byrd, the pedal steel
counterpoint on an upbeat redition of Heavy
Heart and there's also a Bo
Diddley improv gee-up before Stray.
There's also an unlisted track - a cover of the tune Ramblin'
Rose which was made famous by MC5.
Thankfully, the band chose to release
the raw live recordings rather than doing any overdubs.
"I still aint gotten over meeting the guy who did alot
of "post-event" backing vocals on Kiss
Alive 1 & 2," quips Tim.
As close as the album comes, nothing can quite match the
sheer energy of a live You Am I performance - get along
and see it for yourself.
Initial pressings came with a limited
edition bonus disc, Ignorance and
Vodka featuring a 15 minute CD ROM biography of the
band, and 5 new studio tracks recorded during #4
The album debuted at number seven on the
national ARIA chart.
