Face To Face – the new album is finally with us
and this album is very different to my usual electric offerings as I just wanted to see
what the songs were like when they were completely stripped back to just one guitar and one voice
It was completely unplanned and there was no set list.
I was in Capitol Records in Hollywood to record tracks for my new electric album which will be
released later in the year and the engineer set up my acoustic and a microphone and as I liked
the sound through the headphones I just said ‘ Can I make an acoustic album while I’m in position?’
Joe the engineer just smiled and said ‘why not?’, so thats what happened and less than 3 hours
later the Face To Face album was in the can – we could have easily gone back and added lots of
other instruments but that would have defeated the purpose so the only rules were no overdubs just one guitar.
