Description

Do you know just how connected Orleans is to this song? 
Keep reading …

   This album represents the last time the 3 then-surviving founders of Orleans — John Hall, Larry and Lance Hoppen — collaborated on recording new material. Short on time and even shorter on funding, there are a total of just 6 then-new cuts. To fill this out to a full-length CD, the guys decided to bring forward some of the best of 1996’s Ride (the last time prior to this project they had cut new tunes), which had been largely unheard by the public. 

   Get a Life is a bonus track from 1994’s Analog Men. Both Melt Down and Mission of Mercy (remix) are bonus tracks from the Japanese-released version of this album.

   The recording was engineered by and at drummer Charlie Morgan’s “Thynne Man Studio”, at that time housed in the utility room of his garage in Altamonte, FL … a space no bigger than 8′ wide X 20′ long. Drums, bass, guitars and keys , even vocals were all cut in that room. The “control room” was merely a small board and computer rig, also in that room. The Hammond M3 organ was in the garage itself, beyond the “studio” door … and also beyond the air conditioning 🙂

   Still, we feel the results are impressive and speak for themselves. See if you don’t agree.

 NOTE: Although this title is now out of stock, we have perfected the art of producing high-quality CDRs from the original WAV audio files, complete with the original artwork. If not for the CD stick-on label, it would be hard to tell the difference between these and mass-manufactured CDs. As a bonus, we’ve included the 2 tracks from the Japanese-version release … Meltdown and a Mission of Mercy (remix). How ’bout you let us make one for you?

Don’t want a physical CD? Digital downloads / streaming are also available.

Given that there is some overlap of the same tracks on Analog ManRide and Dancin’ in the Moonlight, it seems only fair to offer a significant discount to anyone who wishes to own all 3 discs. If that sounds like YOU, click here to save 20%!
