Album Notes
Notes about the “Hearing is Believing’ song list.

Today a lot of music falls out of favor so quickly that much of last year’s material is no longer considered any good and is immediately put into the trash can, like disposable sounds, produced without any planned expectation of a real life.
Regardless of how much money or air play a song gets, nothing is more exciting than discovering a new treasure which remains with you and makes the world seem new. One goes through life making new friends, judged against those known for a long time. Such is the mix of material on this album, for us treasure.

Notes about Plain Hard Truth Band members:

I met Bill Maresh and Dan Witte one night as they played guitars under a street lamp in a parking lot of Carl’s Jr., Fullerton, California. I never dreamed we’d play music together. Back then, Bill told me about another musically inclined friend he played with, who lived a block away. His name was Jackson Browne who was quoted as saying recently that “When I grew up, I thought all cities were like Fullerton…they aren’t.” Although I rather disliked school, one of my more positive memories was playing a high school assembly event where my early group shared the stage with Jackson.

Band member Jane Allingham, sister of Rob Allingham, my high school friend who had an amazing 78 rpm record collection, influenced both Jane and I tremendously. It seems only natural that she became a musician, like myself and the musical partner of Bill Maresh ever since.

Frank Cotinola, a remarkable drummer, happens to live three houses down from Dan where many of the live recordings were made in Laguna ‘Beach Shack Studios’. Remaining cuts were recorded live at the historic McGee Creek Lodge in the Eastern Sierras.

Without listing the numerous sessions and personalities that the band members have within their resumes, let this project speak for itself.

I don’t have much use for back-stage passes or after show parties. For us, it’s only about the music really. –Martin Roberts
