Chuck Mead - Upstairs at United, Vol. 8
453-1963 (LP)

On February 28th, 2013, Chuck Mead (of BR549) recorded Upstairs at United Vol. 8. Chuck graced the sacred space with 6 songs including cherished BR549 fan favorite, ''Opie And Me (Down By The Duck Pond)''. Upstairs At United Vol. 8. is the first of the series to have pedal steel captured to magnetic tape and we hope it won't be the last. The recording stands as a real honky-tonk throw down that we're proud to welcome to the Upstairs at United series. Upstairs At United is a series of all analog, direct to tape, live studio recordings, taped above the pressing plant in tribute to the rich historical significance of that space.

Accompanying Chuck in the classic county romp is Mark Andrew Miller (Upright Bass & Background Vocals), Carco Clave (Steel Guitar, Banjo, Electric Lead Guitar, and Pedal Steel), and Martin Lynds (Drums & Background Vocals).
