I produced my first “album” in 1972, using a Teac A1200 tape recorder, layering tracks using sound-on sound. The songs were pretty good — I still play a couple of them — but the finished product was terrible. I didn’t know how to make a record, and the equipment made it hard to correct mistakes.
Then I went on the road playing in a series of rock’n’roll bands, and I didn’t record my own music again for twenty years, give or take.
California Heights will be my second album. It’s taking a long time, so I’m posting it here as I work on it. I’m updating, remixing, re-recording and remastering as I go. What you hear today might change tonight. I may add songs or remove songs, or change the order.
All of this is free for anyone who’d like to listen. When the whole thing is finished I may charge for high-quality downloads or even a handmade CD.
Or I may not.
