November 21st, Retrophonics Studio - Jim and I laid down a new tune "The Looking Glass". I am now working on a new tune "The Giver and Taker" it was a lick George Reeves played while we were fooling around with "Change The World" in his studio in Cashiers, North Carolina. I'm pretty sure that's where it was. Anyway I'm excited to be working on another new tune. We also reworked "My Bird" for The Big Lonesome Rides Again CD. Jim DeVito is an amazing engineer and producer, I was disappointed when I didn't receive all the tracks from the original recording. Thank goodness for Kurt Johnston's two track mix and Jim DeVito's brilliance in combining the two, it made me smile today. A happy ending to this nightmare. I will be so happy to finish this project and release it. Next week I hope to get Frankie in to put drum tracks on "Rocket" a song Barry Dunaway and I pieced together at his studio Cave Canem. Now those were some great memories!
November 22nd, I had a night off - Theresa and I had a fun evening with Wayne and Sue at Best Bet. I think they did pretty good, we did not. Good Sushi, drinks and just fun to hang out, it was a hoot.
November 23rd, Carpetbaggers at DAVE, Sue, Tony and Frankie at Hurricane Grill and Wings - It was a misty chilly night but what a crowd! Steve Spurrier was even in the crowd!
