This is the last song for my upcoming cd release, and I’ve decided for now to continue
my tradition of having one Beatle song included. On my first cd, ‘I Am The Walrus’ was chosen
by my songwriting partner, on my first solo cd, Box o’ Chocolates, ‘Norwegian Wood’ was a collab
presented to me by Forum member Kurt Regner. This is the first time -I’ve- chosen the song,
I heard a connection between this song and their song ‘Within You Without You’, and so I included a bit
of that on the bridge(and outro). Imagine my surprise when I went to purchase the licensing and there were two listings.
One was ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ - and the other was ‘Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows’ - which
as it turns out was done by George and Giles Martin and the Cirque Du Soleil people for the ‘The Beatles Love’ show.
George Martin and I made the same connection! - though he beat me to the punch release wise.
In any case, my production bears little resemblance to either of theirs, so it’s all good.
My friend Richie Scarlet played guitar, and it was the first time in a while that I’ve had a player ‘in the house’
laying their tracks. Richie was a challenge, because he’s amazing, but he likes to come in unprepared
and just have me hit record. No two of his takes are anything alike - he just likes to play from the heart.
I got three complete takes and comped his performance.
Any and all comments welcome.
