The Annual Gear Guide Gets the “On My Deathbed” Treatment

Our On My Deathbed contest is a reader favorite. It’s a tough question, what do you want to hear before you break on through to the other side, before you climb that stairway to heaven? If you could plan out your soundtrack, what are you going to pick?

For our 2009 Gift Guide, we asked this question to East Nashville collective, Holly House Music. They deftly and eagerly responded; each band that was able, met us at Eli Beaird’s (And the Relatives, Eureka Gold) garage/basement studio dubbed the Eastwood Salon, to record their Deathbed covers. Engineer Steve Martin ran the soundboard for us and kept the schedule on this marathon day of recording. Each Holly House group stepped up to the plate and delivered most-worthy performances.
