Album Notes
Neville Pearsall and Chris Glenn have played music together since high school. Jay Thomas is a first call jazz player from the Seattle area and a childhood friend of Chris Glenn. Scott Cossu and Neville went the the University of Washington together in the Ethnomusicology Dept. in the early 1970's. Ed Vance is a well known B-3 player in the Seattle area who happened to have the instrument in his van when Neville was working at Bob Lang's studio.
All these songs were recorded between 1976 and about 1988 on a Tascam 80-8 1/2" analog tape recorder at 15 i.p.s. using DBX encoding.The drums are 2 tracks with one track for each of the other instruments/voices. All the Jay Thomas pieces were done in another set of sessions recording the drums on 6 tracks and bass and rhythm guitar to the remaining 2 out of 8 tracks, then mixing down to a Otari 5050 2 track 1/4" machine and rerecording that mix to a fresh 1/2" tape for 6 more tracks. Some mixes were made but life intervened and these tracks stayed in their boxes until about 2004 when Neville baked the 8 track masters and transfered them to ADAT digital and later transfered the ADATs to Digital Performer and slowly whipped them into shape in 2007 and 2008 using Waves plugins and the UAD-1 card.
The electric 12 string is a Guild Starfire (Gibson 335 shaped, thanks to Brian Glenn) The electric guitars are a 1967 Fender Telecaster and a 1960 Gibson ES-175. The bass is a Gibson EB-3.
