Old Man Crow found a recording he made in 2004 of another song that our friend Chris Clarke wrote, sang and played. At the time they were playing in a trio called CPR with Pete Cox. In this recording: – Chris sings the melody and plays acoustic guitar. – Pete sings harmony in the chorus and plays acoustic guitar. – Rod sings harmony in the verse and chorus and plays electric guitar.

Old Man Crow just put this old recording of Chris Clarke’s Sleepwalking up on youtube, here’s what he wrote;
“In 2004 I recorded my friend Chris Clarke singing and playing a song he wrote called Sleepwalking. I added some guitar, bass and harmony, Pete Cox added some harmony, and Dave Hatch added some drums. Soon after that Chris moved out of Sydney and the project came to a halt.
I was recently going through some dusty old hard drives and came across the recording. I like it! So I asked Chris if I could put it on YouTube, he said yes and so here it is. I hope you like it too. The photo is probably from about 1980. Look at that wallpaper! Here’s the link:”

this song gives me hope that sanity will prevail for Biden/Harris to take the reins of power in 2021 & that the ridiculous reality TV show of the past 4 years will be finished with no sequels

Gotta get back to your arms tonight with drums

Isn’t technology amazing?

My friend Dave Hatch is a drummer who has played on 50 or so of my recordings. He used to be my neighbour but now he lives in Melbourne.

I was talking to him the other day and said I wished he was still in Sydney so I could get him to play drums on my new songs. He said he had built a studio in his garage for teaching, recording, drinking beer etc. and if I sent him a song he’d record drums to it and send me back the drum tracks. Thanks Dave! I had a song I wrote and recorded a year or so ago that I always wanted to put drums on but never got it together.

So I emailed him an mp3 of the song and he recorded drums to it and dropboxed me the .wav files! I could then mix it and put it on YouTube.

It’s a virtual band consisting of me, me, me, me and my mate Dave in Melbourne. All done with social distancing (except me, me, me and me were often in the same room together).

Joni Mitchell wrote this song over 50 years ago, will we ever learn to look after our beautiful broken world?
