Recorded in studio in 1983

A Hidden Gem from Shane O’Brien from actually the first Los Angeles recording session in studio by Shane O’Brien. That night in North Hollywood three track were recorded and this was the third one to conclude the session.
For one reason or another Shane asked the musicians to simply follow his lead and away they went, all three of them on this Blues Rock ride that had all of the players smiling to each other as the set went down. Lee Campbell on Drums, Mike Vandermark on Bass and Shane O’Brien on Guitar and Vocals making things up on the fly.

About the song

The Setting:

Imagine if you will, a 33 ft sailboat converted into a recording studio. The location became known as the Jungle which from 1999 to 2006, a total of 7 CDs were produced. This was a very unusual environment as far as the music recording industry standards goes…

Here is a highlighted example one nights recording session’s story to enjoy…

-I recall sitting on an upside down 5 Gal Paint bucket for a seat, and in front of me stood a make shift microphone stand. There were 2 microphones duct taped at they’re perfect heights for singing and guitar playing. A recall little extra tape was added for the vocal Mic, since I usually bumped into it so much during sessions.
-I did not own any Mic holders yet at that early stage… Everything was borrowed or bartered for.

-It was about 3 AM
-It was real quiet and settled outside
-the hatch door was pulled back all the way
-The only sound were the longees working graveyard
-the Halliard lines slamming on the mast on many of the surrounding sailboats
-also sensed the cawing from a particular Blue Heron as he swooshed by the Jungle
-my headphones were powered by an old Pioneer 175 watt receiver
-I remember this particular song idea coming to mind and the weirdness of just letting it develop without any do-overs other than a lead guitar track to augment that initial rhythm guitar groove
-Thank you to Kevin Whelan for loaning me his beloved Ovation Guitar. That following morning the resulting recording suddenly featured contrasting tones between a nylon stringed guitar and a steel stringed
guitar which both equally shine simultaneously during that short little
lead break before the final verse.
-By sun up everything was all said and done and I noticed my ears were
ringing big time, and you know, they still do today, every time I record…
-Wouldn’t cha know it huh…
Life was as cool then as it is today, I tell ya!
Just Like Regular…

Hum, hum, hum, hum!
It’s after midnight, and I feel there’s a long way to go now
The hours grow long babe
And it’s a job to keep your love here, don’t you know

It’s killing me to wait baby
And it seems to me that there’s times that
You just don’t care no more
But still I won’t hesitate
I’ll go through the hurt and the pain, and the waiting game

But still, I can’t seem to call it a day now
I’m think about you here now, any ole way baby
I dream of you always around

But don’t let me down babe. Don’t let me down now
But don’t let me down little darlin’. Don’t let me down now

I leave the lights on
Can you see your way in my front door now?
There’s a warm lit candle, a warm lit flame in my front window
It’s got a warm soft glow
As warm as the sweet heat in my heart for you baby
And still I got my open arms
Thinking we can make a livin’, and lovin’ and a happy home yeah

But still, I can’t seem to call it a day now
I’m think about you here any Ole way baby
I dream of you always around.

But don’t let me down babe. Don’t let me down now
But don’t let me down little darlin’. Don’t let me down babe
Alright now, yeah

I leave the lights on babe
Can you see your way in my front door now?
There’s a warm lit candle
A warm lit flame in my front window yeah, yeah
It’s got a warm soft glow
As warm as the sweet heat in my heart for you baby
And still I got my open arms now
Hoppin’ we can make a livin’ and lovin’ and a happy home babe

But still I can’t seem to call it a day yeah
Thinking about you any Ole way baby
I dream of you always around

But don’t let me down babe, don’t let me down now
Don’t let me down little mama, little mama, little mama, little mama
Don’t let me down now

Hum, alright now, Hum, Hum, Hum
