Yes The one and only Mike Finnigan of CSNY, Hendrix, blues fame, sings
all the backing parts on "Feels Like Van Gogh" he worked very quickly, and
spent maybe an hour or 90 minutes on it! laid down three parts, with double
tracking! He was going to produce me once, years ago, when we were practically next door neighbors..I was kind of intimidated by that, his resume and credentials, and he is so tall! and anyway we finally got together on this track, he wants to come in and do a couple more tracks on the next album, he wanted to do more on Bargo, but we ran out of time.
Also Dave Sutton of Lucinda Williams, (From the original Jeff band) played bass and Gary Cambra from the Tubes, (from the original Jeff band) produced and played guitar and drums,
I am supposed to fly into town, and cut a couple new ones with among others
Thom Mooney, (the Nazz) Kim Fowley (producer) and maybe Gary and Dave again,....I dont know if its just for a single or the follow up to Bargo. we havent really decided it all yet,, and Mike Finnigan will come down, and I think my buddy Chuck N, wants to come down, but we'll see on that one.
Right now, I waited 15 years to make another album, right now, just gotta promote Bargofaxis...and maybe if everyone is available.. we will go cut a few tracks in a month or two... I have five or six demos, and no one is quite as keen as they were on the last batch of songs.. I'm thinking of a follow up to Bargo called -Bargo 2 (The story of Porridge)
But we'll see... right now ! Tell your friends about Bargofaxis!
if someone would like a copy but cant afford one, I'll give two or three away to the first two or three people who ask me for one, and signed posters while they last
76 views in this thread...and you'd think someone else would give you the thumbs up?
BTW, I seen Michael Finnigan tour with CSN, years ago...
The man is a studio musician legend...
Here he is jamming on Hammond Organ with Hendrix...
Well thanks for the nice compliments about my friend Mike F. Groovy Man
I suppose people here at classic rock just aren't that keen on my work, or my new album Bargofaxis in particular.
Or just so uninterested they don't even listen to the album.
Mike Finnigan is certainly a legend, hell right now he has been on the road
with Joe Cocker and Taj Mahall before that! He was in Crosby Stills Nash (Young) for half a dozen albums over a 25-30 year span, not to mention
Hendrix, Janis Joplin, his solo albums, Ringo Starr, and god knows who else.
But sadly I suppose the thread was supposed to be about my great new
studio album BARGOFAXIS!
if its any consolation, Mike F. was very flattering about the album, he at least
seemed to really like it! He thought the one he sang on sounded like the beatles, I disagree, I think that one sounds more like a lost peter gabriel song.
there is a tentative super session with Me , Mike F, Thom Mooney from the Nazz, and some other similar people.. but if people keep ignoring Bargo I may have to cancel it for lack of interest, I have to have some slim chance of at least getting the costs back LOL
