Heaven Or Bust

Click: Heaven Or Bust

Yesterday I made Zion Illinois a nice place to leave. Today I continue that theme in the drawing even though I’m sure it’s a perfectly nice place. I mean, when you choose between Zion and Kenosha it really comes down to whether you want a nuclear or coal-burning power plant parked on the outskirts. This is the Subcontinentals, one of two bands I became when my solo act broke up. I remixed and added clavinet to the track and found it post-worthy. My  original Nashville demo had Phil Lee on drums and Joan Besen on piano. Phil will be here Sunday for a house concert and I find he’s already sneaking into my blog. Just like him. But please, back to me! I like the rollicking feel of this recording, my brother Mike and Kelli Gonzales provide the backup ooohs and harmonies. It’s really fun to harmonize with great singers and this three-part works for me—it’s heavenly! I like the long tag, too. The sputtering guitar at the end cracks me up, the entry-level clav licks do too. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it helps to present it with confidence.
