Summer Sessions

von Halfblind Henry 01.05.2012 Copyright Blues, Soul Folk Rock Singer-Songwriter

This album was never planned. Rainer had talked to Jörg about this curious band. Obviously he got him interested and one night he showed up at one of our gigs. After the show Jörg said he would like to record us and very soon two days in August 2011 were agreed upon. Pegman, our bass player at the time, was on a holiday somewhere. So Rainer gave me Joey's number. I called and he said, yes, he would sit in. He just showed up atn the sessions and nailed the songs, which he had never heard before.
Everybody had a good time, Jörg did a great job recording and mixing the whole lot. Most songs were recorded live in the studio in one take with the occasional overdub. Christiane joined later to do her vocals. So, recording the thing was easily done, releasing it took some time. But I won't go into that. Have fun, stay healthy, see you soon somewhere!
