Our first day of recording…….
10am. The first track tackled linked us with the 1978 farewell concert….. then it was an eight bar round, ‘Peace n the Fire’, written and sung as the encore for that sole occasion.
This Simon Jaquet song, now with verses and fuller arrangement, provided a gentle but strong start to proceedings.
9pm. Steve Butler, our producer, helped us find a new lighter groove for ‘Ouagadougou’. After numerous hours of effort trying to tame the beast with a click track, bass and drum ………… the solution was to set it free with a whole new feel (no muskets or fifes but a something special from the grandfather’s chest emerging).
