Stan Ridgway | Neon Mirage

"Big Green Tree"

 Released 2010 A440


I’ve met Stan before & we’ve talked on the phone a few times & I really like him, he is a very nice guy. Dave Alvin was producing a couple of songs of him & got him in. It was great session. It was one afternoon & it was the last session I did with Amy Farris & she knocked it out of the park on this one. She did these string arrangements  like 3, 4  part string parts to create a string section off the cuff & it turned out so beautiful & it is live, just them playing expect for the additional string section. Amy played live & Stan played harmonica, acoustic, Stan’s wife, Petra Wexstun, Dave….. It was a magical session & everyone shined on it. Stan took a ref home & he called me that night & was floored on the sound captured. It was great, fun session.
