55milesRecorded in 2008, I took 6 months total to complete the CD, which was recorded at John Hall Studios in Pacifica, CA. John was a great choice as he has excellent insight and intuition about music and he did not know my music or me that well. He came into the process with a “clean” ear which I was really happy about. Since it was recorded on an older style magnetic tape recorder, all takes on the CD were live. Nothing is cut or pasted, so what you hear is what you get. One surprise to me was which cuts ultimately made the CD. Some of the ones that I was confident about when I went into the studio just didn’t add up. A couple that I hadn’t even considered recording ended up being some of the better tracks. Great learning experience which I’ll take into the next one!”
