In our final installment, we hear a bit of Andrew’s string arrangement for “The Smile Of Rachael Ray” (and he makes an appearance later in the video); David attempts to voice his concerns about the string arrangements on the telephone; Jon Graboff overdubs some pedal steel on “I Can’t Wait” and “Dudes” (which also features some baritone guitar from ‘Jeb Fairbanks’); Jeremy joins David for some whistling on “King Of The Crosswords”; and finally we see a bit of the recording of the string arrangement.

A VISIT TO THE STUDIO

Posted in DUDES, NEWS on 2011/01/14 by craig (webmaster)

DUDES contributor (and superfan) Janet Gallo and I hit the studio this morning to sit in on the sessions for a few hours. I am sure David has video coming, but we were there to see a muted trombone overdub on “Guy On Guy” and backing vocals from 3/4ths of Harper Blynn on “Bocce Ball” and “Don’t Forget”. Managed to get one last pic before leaving…

The final four tracks were cut today: “Happy Birthday, Marty Ryan”, “Bocce Ball”, “Don’t Forget” and a surprise twelfth track – a very cool number called “Curled Up In A Corner”. At this point, David will be in the studio overdubbing and finishing the tracks.
