The Making Of A CD/Album

Posted in Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on The Making Of A CD/Album

Going into the studio today. It takes a very different talent  doing studio work than playing live. It’s not often that a great live performer is a great studio musician, and visa versa. Doing studio work is a different ballgame all together.  Playing live is more like driving a Ferrari on a race track, whereas studio work is more like driving a tractor hoeing a field. It’s a very different discipline. Nashville, for instance, I recall hearing years back, has a pool of around 28 musicians they pull from to do a recording. That’s guitar players, keyboardists, bass players, and pedal steel players. 28 total, and they played on every Nashville cut on the radio. About a year ago there was a great movie out called “The Wrecking Crew” about a small group of musicians who were on so many hit songs, I couldn’t begin to count. The Beach Boys wanted to cut their own tracks, but after hearing The Wrecking Crew, they backed off. It’s a verry different talent, as I say.

Ian chose The Ramble Room Studios, on
Eaton Street, here in Key West. The Ramble Room has been open for
around a year, maybe a bit more, I’m guessing? I had not been there
as of yet, nor had I seen any pictures of it either.

Midnight Drive in a Key West Rainstorm

Posted in Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on Midnight Drive in a Key West Rainstorm

Lots of flooding tonight on our way home from our gig at Boondocks, up on Ramrod Key, twenty eight miles north of Key West. This video starts on N. Roosevelt Blvd. in Key West a bit after midnight on  August 3rd. 2016. It continues when the boulevard becomes Truman Avenue, then home in a rainstorm with a lot of of street flooding.

Includes lightning drama, a truck that appears to be disabled and on the wrong side of the street, idiot drivers, and the adventure of the rain storm.
