There were no overdubs with ‘Blues And Boogie Volume 1’. Direct to analog mono is how it went. It’s really a labor of love. You know when you have a really great night as a musician and you say, ‘I wish I would have recorded that’? Well, I just started recording everything. – Kim
Kim: This is how I’ve made my living since I was a teenager. It hasn’t been easy but I’m doing something creative, something that’s satisfying to the soul.
What I do with songs, with lyrics, and melodies… I keep them. It’s like having an old Studebaker. You always got a couple in the yard for parts. Sometimes that happens, you use a part from an old song that wasn’t really happening for you, and all of a sudden that particular lyric or that concept works in another song. And so you always have to keep that stuff documented and just have it in your back pocket. – Kim
