Blues & Other Heartaches
I started to get serious about this CD in 2003 when I was still in Adelaide, South Australia playing in a couple of bands with Terry. We'd put out a jazz album a couple of years earlier and that was ok but I had written some tunes in a blues style that I thought were worth recording so I started putting them together. My main gig is as a drummer (no jokes please although I must admit my card used to say 'Drummer and Musician' just to make me feel wanted) but I've always played guitar and keyboard and so with the help of technology and a hard disk recorder I put the album together song by song. I called in Terry to do the lead work and he says he enjoyed the challenge working with different guitars and sounds but was bugged by the producer (me) who kept saying 'Yeh that's nice but, what else can you do?' We're still friends but the final result took a bit longer due to an interstate move. I hope you like the music and maybe some of the lyrics will give you a laugh. Noel Bowden.
