The first appearance of I Am on the PBGB Blog came about following the July 2011 SuperSesh. You can hear that version, and read about how it came about by clicking HERE: pbgb.bandcamp.com/track/i-am
In May 2012 Garry returned to The Shed with his buddies and PBGB Family members Ken Vatcher and Dave Crowden and recorded four songs which you can read about and hear by clicking HERE: pbgb.bandcamp.com/album/the-garry-carson-jones-project

We all thought that version of I Am was so good that when PBGB Family Member Jem Savage popped into The Shed with his Soprano Sax in mid 2012, we asked Jem if he would be happy to add a couple of layers. Well Jem is always a good sport so he stepped up to the mic. and added some truly haunting sax lines. Ken got excited and added some layers on the congas.
Neil and Ken sat around the production desk and put their thoughts together to produce THIS.
Now folks, we reckon this new version of I Am is an absolute cracker, and we are all very proud of it.
