February 2, 1974
photo by Patty Carmen

We made this recording in my drafty first apartment in the 70s, sometime past midnight...I don't remember the day or month, just the hour and the vibe.

That "studio" was where the above photo was taken and where we tested out our compositions. Crystal sang lead, Debbie harmony, and I was on guitar.

We recorded it on our then brand new Sony reel to reel, that allowed us to record both channels independently of each other - our very own dual track recording studio - wow! The sound was processed through an old fashioned echo chamber I built from Heath Kit parts.

It now sounds like a faded and scratched picture of a bygone era. Like an old photograph, it brings back hazy images, and yet vivid reflections.
