The band spent three days this summer at Rotary Records studios in West Springfield, MA, with each band member taking responsibility for the arrangement and production of one track. Hmmm… that takes care of five songs, but there are 7 on the album. I guess we’ll have to see the final project to get the full scoop.
In something of a departure from their common practice of recording clever arrangements of vintage folk songs, Friends Of Fall includes covers of music from John Hartford, Paul Simon and the Beatles, plus a few band originals.
Here’s one to whet your appetite, a Lennon/McCartney classic.
