A few more…demos for harmony parts and bass…
“You Can Close Your Eyes” – James Taylor.
“Every Night” – Paul McCartney.
Back with high school bandmates for an afternoon of sunny harmonizing in a rental house in between tenants. In the style of garage bands of days gone by, we pressed the record button on the boom box (updated to an iPad) to capture an otherwise fleeting moment. Nothing like playing with friends you made music with when you were sixteen.
The river of time flows quickly. Enjoy the ride and link inner tubes when you can.

A trip backwards and forwards, with musical comrades from the days of Random Pilots and Odd Men Out.
Hasty recording at the end of the day, out in a wooden amphitheatre, amidst the geese, with Tomorrow for Today receiving a second harmony vocal.
