ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Why Tone Hound? And why Corona? Ok...
In the making of this album I went to great lengths to ensure integrity of the audio.
My amps were built by hand, have the best components and use valves. My guitars were designed and built especially for me, are kept in great shape and use vintage formula electronics. Every device in my setup is chosen to have no detrimental effect on the tone of my guitars. As soon as my guitar strings show any signs of deterioration they are changed for new ones. I use the finest microphones, and keep the signal path as short as possible. I recorded digitally at the highest sampling rates and the album is available both as a CD and for download at extended sample rates for those who need that little extra.
I try not to let any of this affect the performance - the first take is often the best but the preparation is vital. Is that microphone really in the right place?
Because of all this, a good friend of mine thinks I’m a Tone Hound! Oh, and Corona?... Work it out...

The live JV Band is a 3 Piece. Bob Henrit (Kinks, Argent) plays Drums. When Bob is otherwise engaged its either Steve Rodford (Zombies) or John Clark. On Bass it will be Mark Griffiths (Matthews Southern Comfort, Don MClean), or Bob Skeat (Wishbone Ash), or Jim Rodford (Kinks, Argent, Zombies), or Andy Childs, orJamie Mallender, or Gav Coulson. Its a fluid lineup. Every one of these guys plays great and each lineup is subtly different.

Recorded mixed and mastered at 101 Recorders UK. Thanks to Viv Boucherat for BVs, Max Milligan for Slide Guitar, Robbie Stuart-Mathews for blues harp, Ian Gibbons for keyboards, Bob Henrit for Drums, and of course Bianca Kinane for heavenly vocals on ‘Would You’ & ‘Touch My Soul’. Marc Sinclair for creative input on the CD Artwork and all things web related . Matt Haywood - Blueshound. Big love to all at JHS including John Skewes, Dennis Drumm & Gav Coulson for support, and Trev Wilkinson and all at Fret King for wonderful guitars. James Marchant for amp-related stuff and Paul Seago at Tayden for great sounding speakers that don’t break. Phil and Sam at Effectrode for amazing things with valves in. Clive, Adam & Pat Betts at TwinStomp’, Aaron Dorey at Sound Technology, Paul Marshall & Joel Manan at Marshall Amps. Steve Haworth at Altered State Events.
I've tried to choose great songs to cover, included some of my own, and captured everyone involved at their best in the studio. I hope you enjoy!
As ever the biggest thanks go to my long suffering Wife Carole - thanks for putting up with the racket! Love You xxxx
