Rockin' With Dave Peters EP Liner Notes

EP artwork by Everyday Records
Boogie Woogie 'Till The Cows Come Home
 Completely written before we started recording, I'd played this live a few times, so it was just a case of deciding a key and laying it down, really. I still play this song on gigs fairly regularly- it's got a groove and usually goes over.
Long Leggy Woman
(Notes on the 2009 recording - re- recorded as a Blues in 2012) :-
I wrote  the most part of this in my head while I was driving along, and  scribbled it down as soon as I stopped. Sometimes a song can come along like that. It`s capo-ed acoustic guitar ( dropped D tuning). Helen Walker on bass and Mike Walker on drums.

You're Sure Lookin' Good To Me
I`ve got a fuzz box and I`m going to use it! . The track's signature sound  is my ancient  Big Muff (see pic) -the world's least subtle distortion pedal, from the days when pedals were pedals.
This was a fairly straight forward  recording - we kept the instrumentation to a minimum. I think its just slide Epiphone Sheraton lead, a couple of rhythm guitars, Dean bass , Mikey W on drums , and lead vocal complete with slapback echo. Although there was a temptation to sing it an octave higher, which would be more natural for me, I resisted. As far as the instrumentation goes, simplicity rules !
