Who Knew (Studio Version)

Robert Palomo

Well, my fans, such as they be (they be great, if few in numbers) encouraged me to “really” record this from Greg Connor’s songwriting challenge. So off into the Total Chaos studio I went, and now this is out on CD Baby (sales proceeds go to benefit Doctors Without Borders - http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/robertpalomo4).

I think my 20-year sojourn in Russia is having some effect on me as an arranger. I got all the tracks down, with the solo played on different guitars. Didn’t like it. Struggled. Got nowhere. Then woke up one night at 3 a.m. thinking “accordion!”

As my conscious mind came awake it shrieked “NO! NO! ARE YOU NUTS? NOT THAT!!” But as I had nothing else, I tried the old accordion plugin. Damned if I didn’t kind of like it! It would be better with a button accordion played by someone like the Fausto Beccalossi (who plays with Al Di Meola). But Al is Al and I is me. And this is wot it is. Who knew? :-D
