Wewh! After 3 years of work, we are nearing the end of the recording part of creating the album, Dream Analog.
This week we record background vocals and horns and then off to Northern California to mix in a real cool studio called Laughing Tiger. Brian (producer) will be rolling up his sleeves and mixing old school in a great studio set up specifically for mixing analog. We will be creating real vinyl records, CDs and cassettes from these recordings.
Thanks for all the support we have received and encouragement to record analog. It is a great sound. So much more organic information is accessed via the analog process!
Here’s some recent photos taken while recording the last couple songs with June Kato, Jim Whelan and Brian D. Hardin. Guest drummer, Paula Montondo, played drums on a new one just added to the album, Whatcha Gonna Do.
The next dimension is very evident for those who can see it. Great News! The incorporation of this new level into “daily living” is becoming complete. You don’t have to live on the outside of yourself anymore. You were fooled into thinking that was the way. It’s always been an “inside job”. It’s always been an inner journey. Your life is going to expand more and more, but you will be fine. You will be fine letting go of the shore and floating down stream as Carlos Castanada said. For this is a true way of living and navigating this matrix or whatever you want to call it.
You have played small because you perceived it as the path of least resistance. You thought by being small you would be able to get along with others better and not rock the boat. But now, you see that being you is the BEST you can do. It is the only way to be on your true path. That way all the ingredients are there is perfect cosmic harmony for new things, new wonderful things, to happen. New combinations. You must bring your whole beingness into play and not leave yourself out of the equation. You are a beautiful necessary part of it all.
Do a ceremony with yourself and release the old images of yourself given to your by family, friends and even yourself. Release it gently and let the new present itself. The bigger you. The you – you have always been since you arrived.
A couple months ago I recorded a few songs direct to vinyl on National Record Store Day at the History of Recorded Sounds.
They were then dubbed off the vinyl into digital land as an Mp3 so you could hear them here. Just me and my guitar — Songs for the times…
It seems like yesterday it was May and now we are in June. It’s still June now, we didn’t pop into July already? o.k. good.
Here in the sea of the in-between, we are navigating the energies of something different in its consciousness expanding effect. Keep yourselves together and stay cool. Get into the vibe of feeling good even if you can’t know all the ins and outs of everything or the answers. That is how it is and resisting it only makes you look away from your own true path. Your mind is not going to understand it. It is beyond what the mind can contain.
Feeling good and trusting is our navigation in the in-between. Don’t let the weirdness throw you.
Your o.k. I’m o.k.
Time is not linear and yet our mind is conditioned to try and make it work that way. Seems the “mind” needs an overhaul. New information. New schematic. A broader perspective emerging. Turn on some of that deactivated dna and roll.
Stand in the stillness in the center of your being.
I’m sending out a wave of love and centered calmness to you all. There are many out here or in here that are awake to doing their part even if they can’t really define what it is to someone else. That’s because it’s beyond words. Keep on keeping on.
