This was a D&C record that kind of slipped between the cracks. Not the brilliant effort of Fly Me Courageous but a solid record none the less.

Mark is such a great writer and Joey Stowe is one of the best unrecognized drummers to ever come out of Atlanta.
I was part of the recording, but on my way out of the band due to other commitments at the time.

This record was a massive undertaking & tremendous fun. Bob Elsey & I worked on perfecting the interlocking chorus patterns on this song for weeks in pre-production rehearsals. It was 10 years from laying down my 1st track to my final overdubs with long stretches of intense rehearsals before going back into the studio. One of the projects I feel blessed to be a part of.

Records more people should have heard installment 26.
This record had a long and winding road on the way to getting finished.
Started as a programmed drum, acoustic guitar and bass project, with Glen Matullo engineering
and David LaBruyere on bass.
This song owes a lot to Rafael Pereira for the amazing percussion and Gerry Hansen on drums.
We were able to keep Dave's tracks and build from them and Sue's piano
(If I remember I tracked the pianos for Glen, but that was a long time ago.)
Check out the rest of the record.

Records more people should have heard installment 25.

I had to pull together a coherent sounding live CD off 2 different festival and one club show board feeds. One of the shows there was no kick drum microphone, another no trombone mic, it was a challenge, but I love this band & was determined their last release before Oliver left for The Wood Brothers and Chris took off back home to the Midwest was going to be a good one.

I did 2 records with Kevin. I think this was off the 2nd.
Our agreement was he was in charge of the harmony, I was in charge of the sounds.
Brendan O'Brien engineered the basics session at Studio One and made me put in writing I forced him this get this drum sound before he consented to record anything.

This was recorded at Ricky Keller's place, Southern Living at It's Finest.
One of the most difficult songs I've ever played on for some reason I don't understand.
Must have been an off day or something because I just couldn't wrap my head around the structure of the tune.
Still it's a lovely song (and album) and Pat is one of the coolest and nicest guys out there.

Natural Born Slaves

Records more people should have heard installment 18.
Two tracks this morning since the first was from an artist previously featured.

This is the latest release from the legendary Athens band and political activists Ravenstone. Groups like REM point to them as being the fathers of the Athens post-punk music scene. Known as much for their anti-racist and pro gay rights activism as their music before gay rights issues were seriously considered an issue in the south.
The band members are spread across the Southeast now and I had the pleasure of completing this set of songs with the band. The original versions were recorded decades ago and I kept as much of those recordings as possible.

Off “Old Airport Road”.
I think I played keys on this one.
I do remember recording a whole bunch of songs one day in a makeshift studio at Clay’s house.
Only the “featured” players are credited.
If it’s same as the live band that did this material it’s Jimmy Cobb on bass, “Reggie” on drums and me on keys. Don’t remember who played Sax, but Ken Watters played trumpet in the live band with Sandra Hall sharing vocals with Clay.

We recorded this song as a funky upbeat arrangement mid 90s with Jimmy Cobb/bass and Charles Wolf/drums, Mark Richardson engineering as part of the single a month project for Clay.

Out of the hundreds of records I’ve played on “Blue Tomorrow” by the Swimming Pool Qs has had the most influence on other musicians that I’m aware of.
More times than I would have imagined bands we were performing with would ask if we knew the Swimming Pool Qs on learning we were based in Atlanta. “Blue Tomorrow” was always referenced the record that inspired them.
Here’s a taste.
