Dave and I will be back in the studio Wednesday to work on our new (first) album. We’ve got most of the basic tracks laid down already, but sometimes a funny thing happens on the way to the record store. By the time you’re almost done, some of the early-recorded songs start to take on a slightly different arrangement when you play them live. They sound better, fresher the way you do them now. You get the urge to record them again. After all, you want your best work immortalized on a disc. Right?
I guess that’s a good sign. It means we’re evolving and getting better as we go. We’re growing as a musical act. But it doesn’t help us get the CD finished and out to the folks who, we hope, are itching to buy one.
So, we’ll get some fresh coffee brewed, have a seat in the studio and have a good listen to what we’ve done so far. Then we’ll have to decide what’s good to go, and what can be done better — what’s got room to grow and what has reached its potential.
Then there’s the songs we haven’t even laid down for a first time!
