HARD TIMES … Oh Well … Let’s “RUN OFF… DOWN MEXICO WAY!”
Country/Bluegrass/Latino theme song from THE LOVERS AT MAMA’S CAFE album released on Apple Harvest Music in 1991. Recorded in a living room of a mountain cabin in Julian, CA., using only a DAT four-track recorder without effects. There was no post-recording studio production, you are hearing the music as originally recorded. Restored and salvaged from commercial cassette copies we scrounged up in 2019 by the wonderful Dale Price of Electric Canyon Studios in Chico, Ca. The master dat (tape) was lost in fires in 2003.
THANK YOU, DALE!
Yes, my Spanish is horrible … you can hear me chuckling as I miss-pronounce the translation by Fred Judson. Dennis Caplinger is on fiddle, mandolin, bass, and lead guitar.
I am playing the other guitars and the vocals – TWO MEN WILL MOVE YOU … ha, ha…
Steve Weatherbee was our engineer. In this turbulent time of heartache and travail (Coronavirus pandemic) we hope this will soothe you, as We ” RUN OFF DOWN MEXICO WAY …” in our minds. Yes, we were ” unplugged ” long before the big stars did it !
