Greetings everyone out there in Computer Land. Just a quick note to let you know I have a new album called "Basic Glee" which is available for purchase on this very website. There are fourteen original songs in a variety of keys including B, E, the ever optimistic C, G, the righteous D, A-minor, the enigmatic B-flat, C-sharp, and the mercilessly somber B-minor, among others -- all recorded at home at Tabby Road Studio (except for the drums which were tracked at East Side Sound Studio here in New York). I refer to this record as my "guitar album". There are a ton of them, ranging from my trusty Telecaster to my merry Martin acoustic. In between there are Rickenbacker six and twelve-strings, a Stratocaster (courtesy of Michael Mazzarella), and a Les Paul
(generously loaned by Doug Larcey), plus a wonderful glassy-sounding Yamaha acoustic twelve-string. The bass duties shared by Nancy and myself were performed on a Hofner 500/2 model (more about that in the liner notes). The drums are my old Ludwig four-piece kit, except for a couple of songs done at Hot Sound Studios using a Yamaha set ("Pauline" and "My Lorraine Bow"). The vocals were sung into a Rode Classic Tube microphone, which went through a Summit pre-amp compressor and into an ADAT XT20 recorder. (I know I'm starting to sound pretty technical, but believe me, I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.) Nancy and I worked long and hard on these tracks, and we appreciate your patience. Thank you for your support over the years and I hope you dig the new disc. I think it's the best one yet.
