ROCK: Hard Rock, URBAN/R&B: Soul
This music was recorded in another time, but it remains timeless. The Record Plant Recording Studio in Sausalito California is one of the premier professional recording studios in the world. The tracks on this CD were recorded there over a 5 year period, with the help of some very talented musicians and engineers. The songs range in style from hard rock all the way to soul and beyond. There are a few landmark recordings using early guitar synthesizer from a company called Zeta out of Berkeley. Guest artists on this CD include Lenny Pickett (from Tower Of Power and Saturday Night Live) on Tenor Sax, Pat Thrall (from Meat Loaf, The Go Project and Pat Travers) on Guitar and Bass, Preston Thrall (from the Greg Allman Band and The East Bay All Stars) on Drums, Corrado Rustici (from Narada Michael Walden and Zucchero) on Guitar, Nate Ginsberg (from Graham Central Station, Todd Rundgren, Steve Miller, Freddie Fender, Norton Buffalo, Del Shannon and Mary Wells)on Piano, and Cory Lerios (from Pablo Cruise) on Hammond B-3 organ. There are a lot of moods and dynamics on this album. It is easy and fun to listen to. I know, I've been listening for 30 years, and I'm still not tired of it.
I started recording at the Record Plant while I was a member of a band called âFeverâ. A recording engineer named Chris Morris worked at several studios in Los Angeles, and liked the band, so we did some recording down there, and when Chris moved to Sausalito, we continued to work with him. Through Chris, we met Chief engineer Tom Flye, who developed an interest and worked with us as well. âLike No Tomorrowâ, âSearchinâ and âIt Drove Me Crazyâ are 3 good examples of the direction of that band, and the invaluable assistance of Chris and Tom. My songwriting partnership, and lessons in Jazz theory with Ralph Perucci, a fellow guitarist and singer in 'Fever', opened a lot of doors (and windows) for me. When I left that band, I called the studio and, because of my interest in the art of recording, asked for a job as assistant engineer. Amazingly, they had an immediate opening, and I started a few days later. I worked there on staff for about 4 years, made a lot of great records, learned a lot, and then quit and worked there occasionally as an independant engineer. While I worked at Record Plant, I worked on side projects with Pat and Preston Thrall and Brian Godula. âMaterializeâ, âI Stand Aloneâ, âMan In The Middleâ, âMass Confusionâ and âNever Say Noâ are all examples of that work. The song âLuckyâ was brought to me by Gil Watkins, who is amazing at bringing people together and making them feel at home. âJust Ainât Soâ is a song recorded by a band I was in for a brief time after leaving the Record Plant, called âAquaâ. There are 12 more masters from this period than are on this album, but they just would not fit on a single CD. Maybe thereâs a sequel, a volume 2. Time will tell... -Alex Kash
