"Up at the Late Night Moon"

"UP AT THE LATE NIGHT MOON"  is a line from the effervescently popular song "Your Mother's Dog" which became the name of this collection of songs. This record is a jam or like being at a house concert or party. What began as a get together of some people that had played together in some informal performances began to feel like it might be, a chance to record some new songs and recast some older songs in a new setting. We started out with "The Crawdad Song", a song that looms large in my personal history and has a good roll to it. I was hoping that we'd be able to get a vibe or a groove more than say a perfect take. I wanted more of a "field recording" kind of sound. I liked the combination of instruments as well as the country/folk and rock elements swirling around in the soup.  This was a no stress project. What I'm writing, trying to describe this experience, is more difficult than the recording, mixing, and the mastering of it was.

"The Human Wilderness"

Jeff Smith

In cart Not available Out of stock

This was recorded at BIAS Recording in Springfield Virginia. Rob Schnapf (Beck, Richard Thompson et al) did a lot of the basic tracks and Jim Robeson (Sweet Honey in the Rock, Taj Mahal et al) did overdubs. Jeff Juliano (Dan & Shay, Dave Matthews, Oar et al) mixed the tracks. The basic tracks were recorded in one late night session at Bias and the players were John Jennings, Rico Petrucelli,Rob Magruder and myself. Overdubs took place over the next couple of years whenever I could afford it. Jeff Juliano took the songs to California on vacation and played them for Acetate Records who liked the tracks enough to finace the mixing. I believe the quote was that they liked the album because "you could fight to it?" The song "You" has been used on the show The Young and Restless a half a dozen times and " I Never Wanted You To Go" has been used a several times and "Hideaway Rockin" was placed in a fight scene on the tv show "Army Wives".
