This one started as the piano piece. I was messing around and thought it had a vaguely Eddie Harris sounding vibe from Plug Me In (which is a killer record, absolutely killer). Anyway, I decided to develop it, since it sounds a little different…read more

Really Cool vibe on this :)

A total gtr inspired tune. The riff came first and I knew it needed thunderous drums. The rest fell into place. I envisioned this one being very Top of The Pops on a Saturday in 1971, or Granada TV in summer of' 70, depending on your point of…

I have never written a song about the RPM Challenge itself, until now. Have we really been here for 15 years? It needed to be fun, it needed to be a great dance number. I had the gtr riff, and realized it would be even better as a horn line. The…

As a co-RPMer, I think this is a fantastic song of celebration to commemorate RPM's 15th year. Love it!

A very enjoyable album Gary.

I have had this riff for a while. It needed a song. It needed cowbell. It got both, and it's a great song to drive to.

Personally, I blame you! I shouldn't be rocking at my age.

This one came solely as the chorus melody and the basic hook "So I'll sing my song for Carolina" It's all I had for months, but I thought it was a good chorus line so I kept humming it to see if it would sprout further ideas. The mid section is…read more

Yes, and I absolutely loved the beginning .

Gary Fox's avatar
The word agony and the basic melody for the first line came first. I sat on it for a while, then one evening tried to figure out the chords for it. The verse chords followed very quickly, effectively falling out of the gtr after I had discovered…read more

Well, of course, I don't remember 1971. Haha! Yes it does sound like that!

This one started as the verse chords and some rambling vox melody. My demo of just gtr and me mumbling resulted in something vaguely Lennon-esque in delivery, so I kept that aspect and took it further for the mid section. The harmonies in the…

"The harmonies in the chorus were fun to record..." and absolutely wonderful to hear. Picking up your Lennon shades here too - very cool!

Great funky, loose groove. Love the cheeky percs in the bridge.

Love the way this one kind of slinks along. Sounds like an absolute classic on the first listen. Fantastic, Gary!
