Collectables (2009)

This is a collection of 11 songs from 3 albums recorded between 1990 and 1996.

Songs 1, 2 and 3 were recorde in 1990 at Crosstown studios in North Vancouver and were on "Dreams of the Highway", my first record. It was produced by Roy Forbes and engineered by Rolf Henneman.

Songs 4, 5, 6 and 7 were recorded in 1993 at legendary Mushroom Studios in Vancouver and come from the album "Still Around". Produced again by Roy Forbes and mixed by Rolf Henneman.

In this period I worked with Roy Forbes, a long time hero of mine. He and Rolf were a great team. The fun and energy on the first 2 projects was unbelievable. I got to play with Robbie Steininger, the late great Robbie King, Chris Nordquist and Doug Edwards in Mushroom Studios and we got straight live takes off the floor on some songs. I got to work with Dan Smith and Lawrence Knight. The list goes on....

Songs 8, 9, 10 and 11 are from "Vera's Cafe", recorded in 1996 in Victoria, produced by Hugh MacMillan and mixed by Paul Baker in Vancouver. Along with Hugh we worked with Vince Ditrich, Gayle Delorme, my good buddy Coleen Eccleston and the record saver, Robbie Steininger.

I had a hard time picking songs and leaving out others. I consider this time of my music life a total privilege. I hear my flaws and I hear songs and performances I'm happy with. What a time I had. I also totally enjoyed hanging out and working with some of the best players and people in Canada.
