new album 2

Wednesday, 28th April 2010

well now I have 4 CDs of rough mixes and the next stage is to send copies to Kathy, Alison (partner in Blow the Fuse) and listen to over four hours of music to decide which takes will make ‘the cut’. We played ‘All the things you are’ seven times trying out different tempos/ideas eek!
Guess which one is the best? – Yes the first one we played at the live gig. This version contains a small reference to Malcolm Mclaren who died that day – that must be a first for this tune!
