It is also very true, by CROM!!! Yes! The week of June 8th thru the 13th we recorded the official BB WOLF & THE 3 LPS soundtrack back in Milwaukee at my bro-in-law's studio! And I can honestly say it is one of the top three coolest experiences I have ever participated in. The other two I only share with those closest to me...sorry. But anyway, leading up to the actual recording I was very nervous we'd be able to pull this whole thing off. I had three vintage BB WOLF & THE HOWLERS songs we had to put together. These are the never-before-heard "Lost Recordings" of BB's before his untimely death in 1920. Remastering them took many, many hours in the studio and then, on top of that monumental task, we had 12 other musicians (my self included. I played washboard on one track and sang on another! YES!) to coordinate, get set up, record and then mix and engineer their songs. All in 5 days time! I honestly hoped we'd get 2 maybe 3 clean songs out of the deal and we got 7!!! Yes, seven! And I was amazed, delighted, cried with joy, high on adrenaline the whole time. All the songs came together beautifully (I could be crass and say something about myself here but I shall refrain) and Pauly my b-i-l worked some real magic as our engineer.
All kidding aside I have to say that hearing a song that I wrote come to fruition by some of the most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing literally brought me to tears. It was a very moving experience and I shall never forget it.
And it makes me want to do it again!
So the BB Wolf book FINALLY hits the stores next week! We're having a book release party at Comicopolis in downtown Santa Cruz on the 10th from 4pm to 8pm, and the cd will also be making it's official debut there as well! The books and cds and shot glasses and coasters will all be made available immediately thereafter on this here site. I hope that some of you reading this will be able to make the party as we will be having food (dead pig of course), drinks, prizes, music and me and JD signing our books and cds and the nibbly bodyparts of all the new groupies I am sure to now have as I am a FRIGGIN' ROCK STAR!!!
