ON A HOT SUNNY DAY AT THE BEACH OF SAN JUAN, CURACAO.................
"In 1997. Paul came to the small carribean island of Curacao to visit me. He had his acoustic guitar with him, and we drove to the secluded and deserted beach of San Juan. We stopped at an old wooden shack and Paul began to play as pelicans flew around, and the deep blue sea rolled gently to the shore. Paul loved this scenery and his magic filled the air. He has always been drawn to the ocean and the beaches, and he played his heart out with the warm ocean breezes surrounding us. Listen closely and you may hear those breezes on these tracks. He blew me away, and I recorded the songs right there.
We recorded six songs; five from his new project "When The Coast is Clear" (Paul''s masterpiece released in 2004). I requsted one of my favorite sonds of Paul''s rich catalogue: the title song of one of Poco''s albums, "Indian Summer". We recorded it while Paul walked along the beach and I believe it fits in the vein of these songs.
When I visited Paul this year in Key West, we talked about these San Juan sessions. We listened to the recordings and decided it was time to share the music with his fans.
It is from this great creative day that I present Paul Cotton - "The Sunset Kidd" - for your listening pleasure. It is a great opportunity to relax, shut your eyes and listen to him, all alone with his acoustic guitar.
This was a spectacular day in Curacao. I was lucky to be there and am glad you can listen to these unique recordings of a man that never ceases tp amaze us with his many talents.
Paul has been writting new songs, surrounded by the sea that inspires him so much, and married his lovely wife Caroline standing in those very waters. He looks and sounds better than ever, so I''m sure you have not heard the last from the Captain ... and as he would say...............Happy Sails"
