ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The phrase “Left Hand to the Sky” comes from a toast that was often offered by original HSB member Tommy “the G” Gilmore during the band’s early days in South Forida. Serious health problems forced Gilmore’s retirement from the band in 2008. The title track, which recounts the band’s adventures in Key West, is dedicated to Gilmore and to the band’s late drummer, Billy Ray Rivers, who considered it to be Miami Dan’s best song. Billy died during the early stages of recording the album, and is credited as co-executive producer for his role in planning the album.

Original Beach Boy David Marks plays on two of the tracks, “Senorita”, which is dedicated to him and wife Carrie, and “High Surf”, an instrumental track in the style of the 1960’s South Bay surf songs recorded by the Beach Boys, the Surfari’s, the Ventures and other surf rock bands of the era.

Former Beach Boys sidemen Gary Griffin, Probyn Gregory, Randell Kirsch and Philip Bardowell also appear on several tracks. In addition, Gregory also produced, arranged and played horns on the Sinatra-styled “We Tried to Take Love All the Way”, the band’s first venture into 1950’s styled ballads. “I had always wanted to record a Sinatra type song, and often mused over whatever happened to the couple in the song “All the Way”, so “We Tried to Take Love All the Way” was the result,” states Yoe. “I thought Probyn and Gary did a beautiful job of putting the track together in California. Jez Graham added a grand piano track in Atlanta and I went to Los Angeles to do the vocal. It’s a pretty radical departure from our usual material, but we’re really proud of the way it turned out.”

Four tracks were produced by former Brian Wilson keyboardist, Scott Bennett, including the pop track “Extra Innings”, which was co-written by Bennett and Miami Dan. Most of the production duties on the remaining tracks was done by HSB member Sean Williams, who also mastered the album.

Spanning a range of genres and containing 11 original compositions, “Left Hand to the Sky” is almost certainly Miami Dan & the Hayes Street Band’s most ambitious outing to date.
