I wrote this song at the tale end of the pandemic year in 2020. It was an instrumental piece that I did not get around to putting any vocals on it and it didn’t have a solid drum track. I was looking to send it over to my old band mate drummer from “The Lampshades”, but alas everybody was on lock down. So what are we going to do to get this drum track down? Texting back and forth with Gary the drummer, he had an idea to send him the track with the click track and he would figure it out and take it from there. A few weeks later, he sent me this Youtube video of him and his take on the drum parts for the song. I just came across it the other day and felt I had to share,

“Willow Creek” featuring Gary Sabshon on drums!

With Latin percussion through out the song — a song with Spanish Flair – You must know how to dance to the Bossa Bass a Nova? If not you should take the time to learn, it’s just a two step – slow- quick quick 1-2 – Now that you got it, I know you got it – Let’s take it Uptown!

“Another” was written with this neat plugin called Dark Theory. It has some, (I think) Pink Floyd overtones to it, obviously “another” one of my earlier influences. It has a progression that meanders through the atmosphere with some background tones from the Dark Theory. This is a full on instrumental that you need to crank the volume, smoke a joint and be immersed in “Another” time and space continuum.

How many times have you’ve been Crazy in Love? You do stupid things for the one you think you love. You go out on a limb, you fight, curse and make up (yes the make up sex is fantastic!). Listen to you’re heart, but don’t get lost in love and lose yourself when you are, “Crazy in Love”
