Watching Over Me
I have been told by people who have bought the CD that you can hear the influences of George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Dave Mason, Duane Allman, Wishbone Ash, Pete Bardens, The Dark Knight, Grateful Dead and Bill Frisell (among others) on the CD....which I think is very cool!! I have always liked albums that you can listen to numerous times and still hear new things. This CD is like that, it has many layers. In addition to writing all of the tracks, I also performed and played most of the instruments on the CD. Additional contributing musicians include members of Blue Taxi, Spy-Fi and my current project, The Extremes. This CD gave me the opportunity to play guitar, bass, keyboards, mandolin, percussion and a whole host of other things. The best part was being able to lay down numerous guitar tracks with different sounds creating a lot of textures. This is something that a lot of my favorite guitarists (George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Les Paul, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Randy California, etc.) always utilized. It was a lot of fun exploring new territory in the making of this CD. I have received a lot of Great responses in regards to the CD. One of the things that everyone seems to comment on is that you hear new things and it gets more interesting with each listen. Billy Capuano.
