Green Shoots

 

This was our first day of recording,at Savage sounds in St.leonards,East Sussex,where I live. We only have a small budget so the boys in my band worked extra hard at getting the tracks down quickly. We managed to record 9 tracks in 7 hours!!! That must be a record!

I'm doing overdubs and vocals at East River Studios in Hailsham where I'm working with a wonderful Sound Engineer called Kevin Jones. My friend Bob Mazzer will be taking a few pics there soon so I'll post as soon as I get them.

Some of the songs are old and some are new but they are all songs that are close to my heart with a couple of light-hearted ones in there for good measure.

They've never been released before so don't worry that I'm collecting songs already released.I'd love to make a collection of my Irish sounding ones but that's a project for the future.

Yes as the years go by I wonder why I keep making albums,but why not? It was a donation by a freind ,Barrie Hicks, that kickstarted this one.I had already recorded a couple of tracks with Andy Warren so the project seemed to organise itself.

Now it looks like these new shoots will be harvesting soon!

Watch this space!

Fondest love

    Not seen you here for a long time. Last memories were a few of us in the Marine singing Christmas songs. Are you round this way this year?
