| With money constraints being an issue,
I thought I would go back to the primitive but pleasing method
of recording that I did on my first album, "People Like You."
This meant recording on my trusty 4-track Teac tape recorder and
dealing with the lack of studio niceities like reverb, equalization
and other production enhancements.
At the time I was living in Evanston, IL, and working on my
Bachelor's Music degree at Northwestern U. It was a difficult
time for me emotionally with a relationship and a few other
twenty-something crises, and so this recording project was a
welcome relief to everything else that was swirling around me.
I remember when I finished it I thought it was OK, but nothing
special. Now, after unearthing it some twenty years later, I
find many delightful moments inside and am generally quite proud
of the compositions and the performances.
I suppose in many ways you could label this album "People
Like You II." It has a similar unpretentious feel and I
think the feeling from the heart that I enjoyed so much on my
first record is also present here - ENJOY!
