William Shanter does the blues
« on: October 09, 2020, 11:45:44 PM »
So William Shanter did a blues record.  We recorded overdubs and mixes for one of the songs on the album at our studio.
Dude spent some year plus reading all about the blues and then did an album that can only be done  as William could do it. He got a lot of "friends" guesting on the album and his friends list is a who's who of musicians.
It was a great project to work on.   Basic tracks  were done at his home studio during mass lockdown, then as things opened up, we got the tracks and did the overdubs and mixes for the one song.

“I went down to the edge of the galaxy

Fell down on my knees.”

That’s great!

Since the development of the internet millions of people have died, the two may or may not be related.

For the curious,
This was the track done at our place.

The basic tracks we received started right at the downbeat so I had to create 2 bars of click track before that so that Jeff baxter could come in properly and add an intro.  Click shut off after for good cause.  ;) Then Jeff did his thing. after all the recording, we mixed the tracks and sent them off.  Wasn't sure how it would turn out as we didn't know who would be mastering it but it plays nicely off youtube so I am happy with that 8)

Oh Huh Huh Huh!

Ya it sounds good Pucho!

What a hoot !  You gotta love the blues.

Been watching Boston Legal on Prime and loving all the characters.  Denny Crane!    I’m dreaming of the time when humor poked fun of everything and waiting for humor to come back into our lives.

Cool sound.

Shatner's so hilarious and certainly knows how to have fun. It's a shame he didn't do more comedic roles.

Thanks. Yeah it’s an album done as only shatner could. The rest of the tracks are quite good too.  He did “crossroads” with james Burton And it sounds legit. Not as over emphasized as he usually does when he does his thing.good stuff.😎

In the same vein if you haven't seen it , you have to watch all the way through for the punchline, and NO
you won't get your 3 minutes back
