Deciding to look into the archives before starting the album and dig up a few treasures to release for the Subscribers List (see here or here), I came across some recordings from the Wind Chases the Sun sessions (see here). One was a song that I co-wrote with the wonderful Jesse DeNatale, about Leonard and his first wife, Mary, who went through his early trials with him. The Black Market Band re-recorded our initial demo track and gave it some real landscape, but I find I prefer the intimate, bare-bones style(surprise, surprise) of the initial track, so we remixed it and voila. It will be available on Aug 17th (->see music page) xo
The recordings on unCovered continue, a saga by now. More on that later. Meantime, it’s hot and always a good time for a tall iced tea…..
