The ABB have now completed 6 songs for their new C.D. — originals Rocking Horse, Who to Believe, High Cost, Desdemona, Maydel and a surprise outside tune. Some of them you’re familiar with because the ABB played them live this summer, getting them ready to record.
While recording, their thoughts have been with Tom Dowd, executive producer of this C.D., who is recovering from a recent bout of pneumonia. The pneumonia comes on top of Tom’s ongoing lengthy recovery from an operation to remove a benign tumor from his lung last spring that prevents him from traveling by airplane. Although physically unable to join them in the studio, Tom has been actively involved in the selection of material and the approach. As Butch says, “We never want to make a record without Tom Dowd.”
