Blue Dirt Girl’s REWIND post this week was, We love you Tom, one of 14 singles on her first album Crazy Beautiful (2016)
Kathryn was recalling listening to Tom Waits, Black Rider, album on repeat after seeing November Theatres brilliant, Black Rider, play at the Push Performance Arts Festival (2008.)
In the studio, with Simon Kendall and Jason Overy, during percussion and drum tracking Kathryn learned that Congo is a country and Conga is a drum. Take a minute and listen to J’s unbelievable artistry on hand percussion and kit.
Blue Dirt Girl’s infamous Choir of F#?* Angels or Mangy Angels or Manly Angels appeared during the Hammond Ave Studio album recording sessions.
Simon Kendall, recording engineer/vintage keyboard/grand piano/singing artist and Albert Klassen, stand up/electric bass, mandolin (on Big Open Sky track) and backup singer were COFA. Blue Dirt Girl’s Kathryn Sutherland was giddy while “running the board” during all the guys harmony takes.
Albert is a master of so many instruments so consider taking time to listen to WLYT and the other 13 tracks on Crazy Beautiful.
Keep in touch for BDG upcoming REWIND posts.
