Looking Ahead by Shane O’Brien

Looking Ahead by Shane O’Brien

Looking Ahead for good things to come
Looking Ahead for good things to come

Is one of the earliest of the songs written and recorded during the days when the recording studio was actually a 33 foot sloop rig sailboat. The floating studio was then docked in the Los Angeles Harbor town of San Pedro, California. It quickly became known as the rocking-est boat in the harbor. Of the seven albums created in that era of Shane O’Brien and O’Briens Edge [known at that time as The Shame, Shame, Shame Blues Band] is the three CD collection titled “Solid Gold Treasure Chest  parts A, B and C“. Looking Ahead by Shane O’Brien is a track listed in Part A.

Shane O’Brien busy creating new 2013 CD and Video

Shane O’Brien and O’Briens Edge these days in early 2013 are busy as can be either doing in studio sessions for a new CD to be made available at our Artist page at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/ShaneOBrien in 2013. Also underway, we are completing shooting schedules for an accompanying Video.
As for the O’Briens Edge musicians, involved are members of several different Los Angeles based groups. The latest recording session which was done at Shane’s Jungle Studio occurred on Feb 26 2013. That session produced at least two and perhaps other new recordings. Musicians included are Paula O’Rourke on bass guitar {Alley Cats, Eric Burdon and the Animals}, Randy Stodola on guitar/vocals {Alley Cats}, Larry Valens on drums and Shane O’Brien on guitar and vocal.

A Special Note From Shane about the final studio recording session

I gotta say for the record here: It was great to have Randy Stodola and Paula O’Rourke of the Alley Cats stop in and take the time to lay down some tracks with me last week. Alley Cats have a long standing history in the Los Angeles Punk scene. I invited these guys to come over to my Jungle Studio and they accepted no problem, right away as a matter of fact. I’m pretty sure they knew to expect nothing but original music, either from me or them, so the environment was set before they walked in that studio door. Professionalism? Not even needed to be explained! They are that and then some. Thank you again you guy’s, you have become solid members of this Jungle Studio musicians’ family and know that our photo has been included onto the crowded Jungle Studio walls.
That same thanks goes to South Bay Drummer Larry Valens who I don’t think knew exactly what to expect and went with the directions handed to him without question. Made things easy for us
