Story Behind The Song
This song was initially rehearsed and played mostly in an open-jam environment. It naturally evolved and has developed rather quickly into it's present sound. The chemistry was fantastic that afternoon we recorded the final...it was my birthday!
Performance credits are: Scott: vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, organ @ intro. Stacey: vocals. Bill: fiddle. Michael, piano and Hammond B3 organ. Trevor, electric bass guitar, and background vocal. Darrell: drums and percussion. It's like transposing music from the key of C or to the key of F or transposing the score for my guitar to B-flat cornet. It's the same thing, I have to transpose her to the key, to another year and ink in the notes, to hold her hand, to compose again, this dissonant coda.
