Still Burnin'

Folk - Rock

Thanks to Mike Marrone and Jerry Rubino, Mark Rodney and I recorded a Loft Session at the incredible XM recording studio on November 16, 2007. Along with the multi-talented Bill Batstone, we recorded an hour of music. It was like time had stood still. The playing, the singing, the vibe; it was like I was right back there in 1970 hearing those songs for the first time. XM Radio was nice enough to allow this show to be released on CD. This is a live studio recording - you can hear chairs squeaking, lips smacking, a few flat vocals, not to mention some tasty guitar clams! Thanks to XM Radio, I was given all of the unmixed raw tracks. I was then able to completely remix the live show adding EQ, reverbs, compressors etc. in the hopes of sounding reminiscent of the early albums. Back in LA, I added percussionist Scott Breadman on many of the songs to enhance the already cool session mix of the trio. I must say, I think it sounds pretty great! Also, as an added bonus, two brand new songs have been recorded at BatMac Studios in LA to bookend the live CD. The opening song, Summer Of Love, is written about the year I moved to California and what an impact all the great music of that time had on my life. The CD ends with a full-on acoustic rocker titled Four Days Runnin. I am really excited about this project because it does two things simultaneously: it captures the essence of an era that shaped my musical youth with a refining that can only come with time.
