Since Childhood

Back in 1990, Erik Huber and I set about to record a theme album about an old man who confronts his inner demons. We called it Since Childhood. I can’t remember how long it took to record, but I have this vague sense of many, many hours in the studio. I remember those days – and those creative conversations with Erik – with deep fondness.

I want to give Steve Scalfati a shout out for his collaboration and creativity. He was listed as the “one-take wonder” in the liner notes. So true. The inimitable Emily Kate Hall is the female vocalist. Without apologies for its synth patina, from the cassette vault:
