The Hidden War which is where I have been learning, processing Fighting Evil and much more for the Last 10 yrs along with Playing Various Parts of a GOD EVENT. This is when I began a Hiatus from Playing Professional Music, to help Fight for all of Mankind and the Children of the Planet. The Great Awakening which is Now Unfolding, is that & oh so much more but for Now, this will be my Ramblings on Love & Politics Original & the Remastered Release of November 2020.
I started recording Love & Politics in 2000 and was released on June 21st 2003. Late in 1999 I bought New Digital hardware gear out at that time, a Tascam 788 Porta Studio, well before all the Cool Editing Pro Tools Digital Studio Software & Laptops we Use today. By Far it was Night & Day technology from 2" tape and affordable to us Musicians. A Change for the Positive & a Precursor to come.
On this Project I pretty much did everything, from Recording , Mix Engineer to Playing all Guitars, Bass Guitar, Keyboards & Drum Sequencing & Programming, all start to finish. Even the CD Design & Layout was something I had to get all in Line.
The Beautiful Harmonies are Sung by Judy Scott. Judy came in had various Vocal Ranges and added so much to the feeling of these Songs. We did Not konw each other than a few exchanges on the Project. She Nailed all her parts. Other than Judy, its was Pretty Much All My Solo Creation, not necessarily what I wanted but because the Monies weren't there. A Poor Mans Production.
Technology as we know is changing so fast now, so much further than 17 yrs ago. The recording software & other tools Exploded in the late 2000s to where we are Now, is More than Incredible for Production Audio & Film Purposes. The Sound & Editing Abilities we have vs a High Dollar Studio we can't afford. We all Can be in the Game Now.
17 yrs have gone by since I released the Original Love & Politics, I played in a few other Music Projects and really got to work with some of the Best in the Music Industry. Always honing my Audio Skills I started Playing with todays Mastering Technology that was not available back in 03. The New Audio Dynamics Applied to my Creation brought a Energy to the Original Recording which I then fell in Love with this album again. What I was able to Change & Improve Audio wise, inspired me to release this November 2020 version with 3 New Songs, Plus Political Sin Updated. Yeah... Baby.
When I released the Love & Politics in June of 2003, I Originally did Not have any mastering done as it was Brought to my attention by some Radio Folks....Ha and I was still Learning Quite a Bit of Music Production. More Learning Curve of Audio Production is what I was Getting. Needless to say mastering of early 2000s was still very expensive and the Software just being developed. The biggest Mastering Guru in the Industry, Bob Ludwig was many Thousands of dollars, all the Majors you can think of was/is Bobs ears. I did however have some Minor Mastering done but was Not anything of todays or Economic availability in those early years but a Great learning experience.
Most My Software is on my Laptop these days today, Mixing Large bands & having Many Tracks/ Instruments is my favorite. In building up my Production Talents with Mastering tools, I started to play around with my CD Love & Politics. I have done a Few Updates with Political Sin but Nothing released so to Speak. On hearing my CD & what I was Doing with these tools I was able to take this Production much further IN Audio Quality and as I said earlier , I Fell in Love again with my production.
These Technology tools not only brought out Judy Scotts Wonderful Harmonies but all the guitars & other Instruments I remember tracking when I created all of this are jumping with purity. Im amazed at what I was Putting together with the Pre Technology of Our Current time...... Makes Me Smile. I listen to this All the Time & Sing to it too....
Then, 2 things Kinda happened at the same time in this Process of Playing with all the Audio Tracks.
One was, most my Influences from the to the Allman Brothers Band to the Beatles all put out REMASTERED albums from their first original release on Various Albums if Not all.
So Why cant I, I asked myself ?
I then started to fully Remaster with the plans of Releasing Love & Politics down the road, which led into #2.
the 2nd is kinda Obvious… Things are in a Great deal of Political Spotlight again right Now, Political Sin to be Exposed much more in front....Dark to Light, you could Say.
Political Sin is Happening All Around Us, Its is what Inspired the Song, Sad to Say. So I felt it was Natural along with, a few of these tunes were written about this timeline that I foresaw long ago, back in the 70s.
Political Sin has had Updates with Appearances by GHWB, GWB, HRC, BHO & JB Corn Pop was a Bad Dude, all Traitors to Our Country and Other Crimes many of you will soon. lear of. I have been in the War for Over 10yrs, I get Intelligence from some of the Highest Sources in Our Country & On the Planet..... You may Not Like What I say but it is the Truth, In time you will Know the things I do....anyway.
Listening to the Slight Re Mix, with the Mastering Production tools Blew me Away. I was Like, this is what I was trying to get going way back but Independent tools just were Not there in 2003, I laugh Now & Cant believe the Production I was able to make, I think Holy Cow..... Man I must of Been Spiritually possessed..... Yes I was.
So here we are, Im releasing My CD Love & Politics ReMastered, available for Download & Streaming only, if the demand is there…Chuckle… I will add those other Lovelies, true Albums & CDs physical copies but for Now just Digital.
3 New Songs, 2 Written just as we went to War in 2003, recorded in 06. The 21st Century & Monster Produced by Myself & World Renown Michael Reese Who played Lead Guitar on those & in my Live Band TGIF or Tommy Gallagher’s Incredible Friends. Michael is a L.A.Music Award Winner, Guitarist Virtuoso & Credentials from Mitch Mitchell Jimi Hendrix days, Mick Fleetwood & others are way too many to list, Outstanding Player & Person. Please go Look Michael up, his Original Music is some of the Best.
It’s Coming Down Track 12, was Written in 2010 as I began my Parts in the War, Channeled by God or some divine mumbo jumbo you could say. I tried to record this 2x in the early years of being written but could never get a tone that I was Looking for. I wrote the Song on my Gibson Les Paul but was Natural not Plugged in, those were the tones I was Seeking.
Late in 2015 I was able to get some of that tonal recorded with Compromise...Ha and was able to complete production for in January 2016, it was finished.
As with Love & Politics It’s Coming Down is about Our Timeline right Now….Right Now.
The System, was Written in the Late 70s, and is about Right Now
Shes Gonna Take care Of you, is about all times, but is about Right Now.
Political Sin, Has always Been Ongoing but the Players Dots all Connected & its about Right Now more than Ever, what is unfolding Corruption wise...... Political Sin, Where did it all Begin ?
Whats it Gonna Be.....You Gonna Steal From Me is about Right Now & back Then.
The 21st Century is about Our turning at this moment, War is Not the Answer is it Mr Trump, Best President Ever & I hated the Guy like many others. See what he is doing, Not Hear from Propaganda what he is doing.... Thats the difference
and Here we are with President Trump getting us Out of Wars.
OUT OF WARS AND FEEDBACK LOOPS TO KEEP US IN CONFLICT....
WHAT is Coming will be Huge but it will be for We the People.
TRUMP….. is Spot on just in case you don't like him, I'm Sorry he Plays a Part as we all do and Im aware of other Such.
I didnt Like DJT back then 2016 either, under the Influence of Operation Mocking Bird as Many today fight the Programming.
I Love the Guy today,
He really is Helping Humanity, Helping Children Big-time from Human traffickers & other Child Sex Crimes.
Get Ready this is Huge, This Is Gods Turn, Its a God Event
I'm a Empath and SEER, I was Recruited by God/Divine Mumbo Jumbo to help Fight in this Good vs Evil War many are just Now starting to see.
Spiritual Attacks can be Atrocious, The Dark has a way to Fuck with you on so many Levels. Heart Mind Body & Soul,
All on my Measly Budget,
