When it Rains by Shane O’Brien 2016

featuring photos of Iron Erected at the Port of L A.

When it Rains” by Shane O’Brien is the soundtrack for this video/slideshow highlighting the changing environments in the Ports of America. The Ports are heading down that road of becoming fully automated. This presentation features the “Crane Maintenance Building2016 which is to service the fully automated ground vehicles, which is the self contained delivery vehicle receiving cargo shipping containers from the over head cargo cranes, for delivery to a line of gantry cranes on wheels. Those Gantry Cranes load these containers to awaiting trucks, like the big rig trucks you see everywhere on the roads today, as they are making container deliveries to our big warehouse type stores. This building is where the maintenance happens for the Automated Ground Vehicles.
In the not too distant future, no persons will be needed to off load Super Sized Container Ships except the actual container crane operator and the “Lashing Gang” from the Longies in our Ports.
The song itself has nothing to do with the construction site or the crew, but, and I repeat “But”, it might have something to do with that construction crew after all…
By Golly, it is written and performed by… The Ironworker foreman in the gang erecting this building belonging to the Port of Los Angeles . “When it Rains” (c)2000 Shane O’Brien; is simply a song really enjoyed by Shane O’Brien, going way back to when it was first written by this performer in 2000. The Union Ironworkers featured in this video are from Local 433 Los Angeles, CA. The Contractor is Metro Builders and Engineers Inc. from Orange County, California

The Final Production out of San Pedro’s own Jungle Studio

Jungle Music Productions has relocated within the San Bernardino National Forest community of Crestline, California

The Final Production out of San Pedro’s own Jungle Studio consists of slide show photos collection with O’Briens own music setting the back drop. Photos derive from many years of shared moments within the studio walls and that magical environment shared by Shane O’Brien and his closest and dearest friends. His collective of musical friends consists of Local and National Touring Acts. What all had in common is their music shared while creating with The Genuine One. 26 original CD’s is nothing short of an experience felt by a relative few in the music world. Sure there are the “big guys” who may have about as much diversified recorded music in their catalogs, so what does that make O’Brien then? A big guy too? You betcha…

“In The Big City” Shane O’Brien authored this track as he has many others. This is a particularly favored piece and a perfect way to close the Jungle Studio doors in San Pedro and forge ahead to a new studio being built in Crestline, CA

Bonus Insight:
Here are two good samples of O’Briens Edge music. “Pink Noise” ©2005 also included to this bonus insight is of one of the five Cover Tracks a listener may find within the 26 CD’s Shane has recorded. An song originally written by Paul Butterfield titled “In My Own Dream
