Shotgun Alley is a self-contained band; and, understandably, they felt
that they wanted to have the band's own sound come across on the CD.
So they handled all the guitars, bass and drums, and we used session
musicians only for some extra overdubs of instruments not played by
the band members; a fiddle here, a steel there, etc. The goal was to
keep the energy and edge of the band's live sound, while giving the
songs a bit more structure and more interesting arrangements in
the studio. I feel that we definitely succeeded, and you can hear the
results on our second New Artist Series CD, Catchin' Fire.
very enthused about our band's inclusion in the Wild Oats
main concern about being "produced" by a label was that we
was very open to our ideas about the production
of our music
What more could we ask for ?
