Story Behind the Song
Over three years ago John Cohmer and Matt Thorpe collaborated on the very first of many projects. That was titled "Macon House Slide". It's been a great song and very popular listen and download on both Matt and John's (Jasper Mill's) sites. Cohmer studied Duane Allman's slide and loved the Allman Brothers Band style and music. Matt suggested naming the song "Macon House Slide" after hearing John tell of a pilgrimage to the Big House in Macon right after Duane's death.
On Saturday afternoon as the boys were getting ready to wrap it up for the day, John Cohmer said, "I've got one we're gonna do just for the fun of it". He asked Ironman Mike to start off a train on the Blues Harp, Mike also covers off bass guitar on this track. John then tossed in a bottleneck slide intro and Stik steps up to the plate with a rockin' Blues lick. John & Bob Huston start a walk down chording riff and then everyone joins in on the solo hook. Solos in order of appearance are, Matt Thorpe, Kevin "Stik" Paul, Bob Huston, Paul Cummings and Mike and John close with a harp and slide bit. All the jammers return to play the hook and bring you to the explosive ending. "Macon House Jam" inspired by Cohmer and Thorpe's "Macon House Slide" rocks your socks off!
