12 Days of Christmas, #9: The Perrys
If I had the power to give anyone any Christmas gift, my ninth would go to the Perrys. I would give them, if I could, the finances and equipment to tape a live video.
Their last live video, Absolutely Positively Live (1999), was made back when the Perrys still had a soprano. Yet from all I hear, their concert programs have become even more exciting since they’ve moved to a Happy Goodmans-style mixed quartet sound. It would be nice if the excitement, energy, and enthusiasm they generate on stage was captured on a live recording of their biggest hits–not so much a video that introduces new songs as a video that captures the experience of the Perrys performing their best songs to a live audience.
