So after a week with this, I'll admit to liking it more each listen... Definitely getting "behind" each contributors vision. It's been in the car CD player now non-stop since Sunday. (Although I pulled it out today for the new Autumn Defense disc; we're catching them in Boston Thursday, and I want to know the material). Donna, the FB post brought a bit of attention, but not tons of plays. Still time, I guess. To the production notes, you guys all have me beat. I can't record a thing to save my live, and so we went into Zing Studios in Westfield MA to do our track. I have a long history with them, and although the engineer was one I hadn't worked with before (Eric Arena) he did a great job (ten hour marathon with donuts and Paddy's Irish Whiskey for sustenance). In typical Merrick Section fashion, we were terribly unprepared for the session, and we were without a bass player. Tom Doherty played all guitars and bass (his first recorded bass tracks ever) and sang. I pretty much just drummed on this one. "Misunderstood" was Tom's choice for Wilco tune, and it was his general vibe we went for.. I knew the original much better, so threw the arrangement together, making sure to include Ken Coomer's snare cue before the solo (almost did the stick click, but opted against it). The mix was done by Jim Fogarty, who engineered/produced our CD (as well as three other projects I've done over the years. I SO thank them... the budget for this recording was embarrasingly low, and I truly expected them to say they couldn't do it, but they obviously came through for us, and went WAY beyond the call of duty. If any of you guys are in the Northeast and need a studio, call them!! Anyway, that's our story. I may drop a personal message to some of you soon, just cuz I'm a fan!
