This album was recorded in just two days in May 2007 at Doug (Doc) and Jan Riley’s beautifully restored and renovated century farmhouse in Durell Point in eastern Prince Edward Island.
I felt an immediate sense of camaraderie amongst the three performers, whose friendship has spanned a few decades. From the first run-through, the mutual respect and joy of playing together was evident to me, and this became even more apparent as the session went on.
Most tracks were recorded “off the floor” with very few edits and overdubs.
Back in the studio, after loading the tracks into my PARIS digital system for editing and mixing, I found that in spite of the eclectic mix of styles and songs, the album has an overall unity to it.
I’m sure that it is because of the level of comfort and trust among all involved. It truly was a privilege and a pleasure to be part of this project.
