MAKING OF WALTER DANIELS meets JACK OBLIVIAN & THE SHEIKS
Thanks again Walter!
The pictures were taken last February when I went to Memphis and recorded with Jack Oblivian and the Sheiks.
I didn't take a bunch of pics.
The bunker is a cool little studio in Memphis (that Jack and Keith Cooper use), reel to reel along with some of the modern bits, as well.
I got together with them on a saturday afternoon for around three hours or so. I had sent them the tunes earlier and they are great players. Graham, the drummer, had a gig, so we had to finish before he left. We knocked out "Seventh Son" and the Stones's "Rice Krispies jingle" quickly.
The Mel Torme cover, "I'm Comin' Home, Baby" was pretty hard. It is a duet between the lead vocal and the background singers - which we didn't have any background singers - they were added after the track had been recorded.
