One of the great advantages of releasing your first cd at age 60 is that you get a second pass at all of the songs you’ve written over the years. I know a significant number of recording artist friends of mine who have had to live with songs either forced on them by producers and record labels or written in haste to meet a record release date. As I am the producer and record label exec on this project I have no-one but myself to blame for its content. And although I have rewritten some of the songsI have remained true to their roots and reasons for being. Over the course of my career, such as it is, I have had the honor of playing with some of the finest musicians in the business and I have been blessed to call many of them my close and cherished friends. It is those friends that I have called on to help me realize this dream. Each and every player on this project contributed his or her talents out of belief in the project- as the money was miniscule at best.
Each CD was recorded in two days and recorded, like the good ole days, live. As opposed to the present world where everything is now overdubbed and auto-tuned these tracks are the result of friends who respect and admire each other’s talents playing together in a room and enjoying every minute of it. There is no doubt in my mind that tracks recorded as an ensemble always feel and sound better because there isan energy created by people playing together that cannot be duplicated by someone sitting alone in front of a computer. In fact I played some of the tracks recently for a pretty critical friend of mine who said that it sounded like everyone was smiling - and he was right.
So I hope that these songs do for you what they have done for all of us who have recorded them- make you smile. - Con Fullam, 2009
