That's When You'll Know

I’m singing lead on this. It was recorded to 24 track, 2 inch tape, I’m thinking. I have those somewhere, but they’ve turned gooey. Sadly, it seems to go into the red during the chorus, but I can’t fix that now. I have more stories about the people involved in this recording experience than I can shake a stick at and, certainly more than I have room to share here, but I do hope you enjoy listening to it. And maybe someday, I’ll write that book. (*See exciting update below.)

  • In one of those serendipitous moments I love, five minutes after I posted this story about the gooey tapes, I got a call from an amazing producer, Phil York, who I worked with years ago (He did not even know about alonetone until I told him today.) who is an expert at cleaning up old tapes and is going to do that for me. Woohoo! I can’t wait to hear the results.

I wish we could do a nice Willie Nelson tribute, but an original tune. The title would be Can I Call You Willie?

Wonderful vocals, and a nice song to boot. At least going into the red on tape isn't nearly as bad as doing it with digital...

Wow what a voice!!!

This is very timely and classic. Great singing and backing music. Definitely a winner! Was this recorded to tape? It sounds like it's going 'into the red' but either way this has a great feel to it.
