This was my first real release, recorded and mixed on a Fostex four track cassette recorder/mixer with the minimum of equipment, but I did it, after many hours refining my craft, playing and singing in front of the bright mirror of the recording studio. The skills I learned in those days, with a couple of PA mics, a drum machine, keyboard and a small mixer with a spring reverb, have served me well. It’s not the gear, the format, the number of tracks; the presence of the recording, the feel and emotion are what comes through.
I made a few copies, sold a few but mostly gave them away to friends. A few tracks got a bit of radio play on a couple of community radio stations. I’ll never forget the thrill of turning the radio on one day in the car, and hearing one of my songs!
