Rob Kopp—It is very much Barry Gibb. But 45 credits Samantha Sang, who is singing with him.

Genevieve Waite and her boyfriend producer John Phillips (Mamas and Papas) were serious casualties of addiction so her inclusion in this set was singularly appropriate in view of your intro.

@TDK60 Hi. No, because I’m at work when wake is on and I’m editing words soI tend to listen to instrumental/drone stuff, music that’s not too distracting but distracting enough from the chatter in the office. I found I had to pay too much attention to Clay and it kept disrupting my concentration.

  5:30pm JasonInBoston:

It's that muddy Norfokk VA sound, courtesy of Frank Guida-This Samantha Lee 45 is very similar to "Thank Goodness Got a Good Woman" by Lenis Guess - also on Peanut Country. This is the same outfit that produced all those Gary US Bonds records. His techniques were so crude that he would do things like record the whole band in a hotel room put the drummer in a closet to control the sound.

Oooh Kadhja! I'm a growing fan and can't wait for her show next month!
