Everybody enjoys the final product, but you don't want to know what goes into making it.
So Philbillie has a sinus infection, and I’ve had a cold for a week.
But even in the face of adversity we soldier on, and are nearing completion of the long-awaited (by us at least) CD. Today we tracked background vocals on a couple of tracks with the fabulous Lady Chi and Pamela Parker who sing with RonKat Spearman of P-Funk in Katdelic. We forgot to turn on the video when the girls were here. Too bad. They’re really cute, and sing great too.
Monday we go to the East Bay to re-record some more B3 with Harry O. See, we almost completed one of the main songs. But after tracking the lead vocals we realized that the key was far too low. So we scrapped the lot, saved the drums and proceeded to recut basses, guitars, banjos, vocals all in one day. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise since in the process we made it even bigger better fatter and groovier. You could even catch a glimpse of some the overdubs on the jennykerrband youtube channel or just look at the little video roll on the left. Stay tuned, we’ll have some sweet video up soon of Harry and his big organ (Hammond B3, that is), and also Eric McFadden as he tracks some mandolin.
