Jason Becker

"The Blackberry Jams"

The Story
"The Blackberry Jams" is a collection of private recordings and previously unreleased demos from Jason Becker's "Perpetual Burn" era that gives guitar fans insight into his private musical thoughts from the period. In the words of Jason Becker himself, "These recordings were done between 1987 and 1988 and were recorded onto a Tascam four-track. They are very raw and rough because I never intended for anyone to hear them except for Mike Varney and Marty Friedman. "The Blackberry Jams" includes different variations of parts from familiar songs, demos I did that became parts of songs that Marty Friedman and I wrote together. These demos were recorded as possible music for "Perpetual Burn", "Go Off" and "Dragon's Kiss", Marty Friedman's solo CD."
