about

Michael C. Weaver is a talented multi-instrumentalist and a longtime, close friend. In 1987 he introduced me to the world of multi-tracking, and was very generous in allowing me access to his home studio of goodies --- 4-tracker, synthesizer, mics, effects (stomp boxes), drum machine, electric 6-string and bass guitar.

Another friend and I had made some music in 1985 with a pair of cassette tape recorder/players, employing the concept of track 'bouncing'; and before then (82 or 83ish) I'd hacked a couple "two-track" originals onto an eight-track cartridge recorder/player I'd inherited from my step-dad (not to be confused with an 8-channel multritracker, AKA "8-track" multirtracker, such as the Portastudio 488 that was the heart of my studio in the 90s).

But Mike's opening his studio to me was a welcome introduction to the reality that having a versatile home studio, where one could tinker, overdub, and --- oh yeah --- MANIPULATE THAT SPEED KNOB (to make oneself sound much better on ... ahem... guitar, for example). In 1987 and 1988 I created a number of songs with Mike's equipment, many of which are here. Well . . . most of which are here. Basically anything & everything I haven't lost or that isn't completely wrecked, in audio fidelity.

In other words, this collection was not created as a collection, per se. Not meant to be an album of any sort. These tunes would be more accurately be described as "stuff I made while learning the finer points of multitracking."

All of the songs by other artists I covered here were done from a place of respect, for the songs' respective writers - except for "Old MacDonald," obviously (that one was more of a joke). Mike makes an appearance on 'BiBbiG v1,' on guitar and bass, and plays the first guitar/opening guitar riff ('Dueling Banjos' thing) in "Banjos."
