<< Liner Notes >>

Dedicated to the memory of Rollin C. Scott who never saw the record but who heard the album long before the rest of us.

<< Comments >>

As I recall, Jay Wilfong was the person who first introduced me to Moe and 700 West. I was immediately impressed with the audio quality and I think the first cut I heard out there was Ezekial Longspur's song about "Rolling Down the Highway." It sounded so good that it was obvious this Whittemore guy knew what he was doing...........

Shortly after that I played bass on a demo for Bill Jackson and Tom Mobley at 700 West. Rex Thomas also sat in on that one on steel. Jackson was a superb vocalist, and I still think he was one of the best I've ever been around........... Tom later got involved with Sequoia, but I don't know what happened to Bill.......... He sang one song called "The Death of the Circus with No Thanks to Fellini" that I wish I could hear again............ Definitely good stuff............

I remember sitting on that little padded bench Moe had by the window in the control room and watching him work wonders. He was always lighting up a fresh batch of tobacco in his pipe, and his favorite past-time was making up humorous new lyrics for our songs. We learned so much from him about mike placement and ping-pong techniques for recording with limited tracks.

We were really blessed to have so much talent in that place. The people who sat in on our album project were really good. Obviously, Jerry De Rome and Jay Wilfong were a tremendous help. Jim Moore, who was the steel guitarist for Bill Wilson, did a great job. We couldn't afford to pay the session players, but they just did it because they wanted to record out there. Everybody did.

I remember I later tried to return the favor by playing bass for some other artists there. I don't recall all of the projects, but I do remember playing on a single or two for Ed Ott.

Moe invested a tremendous amount of time and patience in all of us. He could fix so many problems. I had a strap button let go and my priceless Gibson J-50 fell on concrete one night. You could have dropped a golf ball through the back of it. Moe repaired it, and I ended up using it on the acoustic lead break in "I've Seen Your Face." I still use that old Gibson for recording...............

700 West was such a unique place to record. You could hear goats outside and smell Moe's coffee brewing inside. He had a knack for putting you at ease with his sense of humor, and that was really important---- especially the first few times you saw that red recording light go on..........
