A great story over coffee, it was Dan Brady, the guitarist in Airborn whom, after a studio writing session, had handed me a cassette of a band called Bittersweet – who 13 years later I launched Retrospect Records with. In the meantime, as a band, we had near 20 originals, 14 recorded in Brady’s “Studio 7” in Framingham, MA and we performed everywhere and anywhere. When we departed, we had three new songs in the works, two of which are below – recorded on a single mic during rehearsals. I can’t apologize enough for how bad the demo sounds after years of degrading on a cassette.
I Need A Woman (degraded audio)
Bull in a China Shop (degraded audio)
Call of the Free (degraded audio)
Stuck In The Middle (rehearsal live)
Long Way (rehearsal live)
During this band I used the Yamaha Motion Bass III and a Fernandes early demo “Space Bass” (cannot find an image) and the world’s most perfect amplifier, the SWR RedHead.
