On hand today were Mike, Chris, & Bill to help me realize this song! From my basement demo recording (below), we followed the structure pretty much down to the letter, with some well placed dynamic nuggets added for effect.
This was Mike & Chris' first time meeting and playing together, but you would not have guessed it. We had the drum and bass tracks down in a few live passes.
Bill's organ was tracked next and went through a Leslie speaker. Typically, Bill's keyboard parts are so surgical and tasty, we put them down last to weave in and out of all of the other parts. Today, we tracked his down ahead of the guitar. By doing this, I feel we got the chance to hear Bill really shine on this one.
For the vocals, I was sure that my Sprechstimme part would end up on the chopping block, but was delighted to track that by singing into a pair of headphones.
This one was short and sweet, but another fun one down to "tape!"
