The final dub and grade for ‘Walk On’ - featuring Bert and Brownie - has just been completed at Azimuth Post Production in London.
Thanks to Drew Stubbs for his attentive grade and Ken Williams and his masterful mix It looks and sounds just great!
As part of the restoration of Acoustic Routes it became obvious that the whole of the footage shot on the day when Bert and Brownie met in Oakland - a few days after the LA riots - simply had to made into a stand-alone film.
From Blind Boy Fuller, to Woody Guthrie, Lonnie Johnson, Leadbelly and of course, Sonny Terry… Brownie plays and sings the story of his life to Bert. ‘Two wrongs make a right… but we did it at the same time’
Filming only ended when the crew ran out of Eastmancolour Neg… and then ¼ inch mag.
No one who was there has ever forgotten that day.
Final DVD authoring is underway at 50/50 Post Production in London.
The graphics are almost finished.

Exciting SOUND NEWS! Two more stunning tracks that have never been previously released are being added to the Acoustic Routes soundtrack release.
The two tracks are:
‘Jones’, a great swing jazz composition by Davey Graham, with Duck Baker accompanying. Remarkably, this is only recording of these two great guitarists together. Recorded at The Troubadour, London.
The second track is ‘Paper Houses’ with Bert Jansch and John Renbourn. This is the only known recording of Bert and John playing this wonderful song. Recorded in San Francisco in 1992.
