Factoid - recorded by my son Beau Pool

We didn't blow the horn too loudly when we released "Made In The Mitten". We were pleased with how it came out, got good feedback from folks who picked up a copy and kinda figured...mission accomplished on this one.
Recently, to our surprise and delight, a number of radio stations have started to play the thing and that's exciting! We've decided to take a stab at encouraging some more radio action. We'll keep ya'll posted on who/when/where but wanted to give an early heads up and THANK listeners and the beautiful DJ's and PD's who support Roots Music & Mulebone on the airwaves!!!

Tonight Lorraine Leckie and Her Demons play Mercury Lounge at 8pm and we'll be celebrating our hard working and talented (former) band mate Paul Triff. Pauly died 2 years ago and in what turned out to be a mysterious turn of fate, we actually recorded what was his last performance. We loved up on the recording in the studio and it's being released tonight as Lorraine Leckie & Her Demons; Live At The Mercury Lounge.
Pauly was a real pet lover and all proceeds from the sale of this recording will be contributed to a fund established in his name called Paulies Pets. Please join us!

We completed mixing the latest from Reverend Freakchild and the very next day the 1/2” masters are up with Scott Hull at Masterdisk for mastering! Rev had many guests over the albums 11 cuts and I snapped these 2 pics from a track featuring G Love and a fantastic gospel singer from Colorado named Hazel Miller Hazel Miller Band. The record was done by hand; all analog ATR Magnetics. I. jokingly call the blue tape in the pic “automation tape” and mark it for different levels and moves during the song. The mix itself becomes a performance and we endeavor to do it until it’s right.

Just spent 2 days in the studio with these fine humans. This is a new group called Tanith who just created 2 tracks for their debut 7" release. We recorded to 2" tape and mixed to 1/2" tape. We just turned the computer on at the end in order to create digital files for the band to listen to. Think Deep Purple meets Buffalo Springfield; real cool stuff.

Hmmm - the mix is up and the strings are off. Can't decide if the photo is about ADD or potential? Welp, the track got mixed and the acoustic guitar sounded much better. #calrec #gibsonj45 #tannoy #NS10 #rockfacilitator #studer827 #ATT102

America Weeping, by Lorraine Leckie and her Demons

This song is a manifestation of one of those cool moments where you can and you do. No matter whom you support most would admit that a critical byproduct of this election cycle has been polarization and societal stress.

In this song, Lorraine gives voice to what many feel; sadness and regret. The tune started in a rehearsal with Charlie fiddling with a bass line which became the verse, and then me more or less coming up with the chorus and then Keith tying things together with transitions and specifically dropping the drums out in the chorus (genius).
Lorraine then wrote the lyrics overnight, we recorded it and Scott Hull mastered over the weekend.

America Weeping by Lorraine Leckie and her Demons, released 16 January 2017 Leonard Cohen is now Sitting up on a star Light up a rainbow of diamonds Across the Universe Out in the nick of time Pour me a glass of moonshine I'm glad he never heard the sound Of America Weeping America sleeping America…

Baking tape this morning at the future home of Excello. These 3 reels contain final mixes of an EP project that I completed 20 years ago and, for one reason or another, never put out. Reel 1 is dated 1-26-96 and the release party will be on 1-26-16. Freaky. I'm headed up to Peekskill tomorrow morning to master with Scott Hull.

Come get your tapes please. We have tried to reunite clients with their master tapes for 10 years and are continuing until the months end. We are finding stuff back to 1990. Pass it on.

The day has come. Excello Recording is closing down and moving. Onward, but we won't be bringing your tapes with us. We reached out big in myspace days, have had a note on the front page of our website for over a decade and have recently utilized FB, normal email and the telephone in an attempt to reunite you with your tape. Many people have responded!
The clock is ticking from now until end January for those who have not. At that point we are very sorry but will no choice but to dispose of them. Please share or not as you see fit.

Dusting off the 1/4" machines and discovered an unreleased Big Apple Blues track in the process. Barry Harrison is singing. We took a machine to O'Flahertys in mid-town to record the band live with a spaced pair of AKG 460's.

Project listen down. It's always interesting and often surprisingly encouraging to listen to an albums worth of completed mixes together in a test sequence. You move back to context and artistic statement after many sessions of microcosmic effort and "near field" attention. I for 1 really like it.

This is very cool. Bill Putnam...if you are in this business and you don't know about him...make it your business to know about him.

The famed “Studio A” and “Studio B” at Ocean Way Studios have shaped the sound of countless classic recordings. Justin Colletti tells how Bill Putnam Sr., the creator of the studio, met its faithful caretaker, Allen Sides, and how Universal Audio captured its legendary sound in the Ocean Way Studios…

Los Colognes tracking at Excello with John Divello. It went down just as you see; all live in the room and all psychedelic like. The recording sounds great...every track keeper, 1 edit on 1 song. It's easy to love making records like this.
