Low In The Water CD
David Harley
Wheal Alice Music WAM02-17

This is a selection of blues-y tracks, recorded as demos over the years. None of them were recorded in commercial studios, so the recording quality is variable. Most of them are better recording-wise than the average folksong-collector cylinder, though. 🙂

Voice and guitar were recorded in one go, in some cases live, but in a couple of instances I’ve overdubbed lead guitar (Lady Luck, Same Old Same Old) and keyboard (Same Old Same Old). In several cases I was playing solo electric guitar* rather than acoustic, because I did a lot of gigs that way in those days.

All songs were written by me. I may return to some of them at some point and do a nearer-commercial-quality version, but not right now.

Same Old Same Old includes two simulations: a second guitar (a Variax impersonating a Rickenbacker 12-string) and a Yamaha keyboard impersonating a soprano sax. I may go back to that quite soon: I like that slightly jazzy feel. And the heavy electric solo on Lady Luck was actually a Gibson J160e electric/acoustic. 🙂

Relevant links to words and such will follow in due course.
