Oh, hey Well at 5 a. Springsteen felt that the upcoming band studio sessions would progress faster than they had for his previous three albums if he first records finished demos and demonstrates them to the band. He decided to record multi-channel, professional sounding, finished demos of some songs he had written during the period. To achieve his goal, Springsteen asked his guitar technician, Mike Batlan, in December to set up a recording facility in a spare room at his home in Colts Neck, NJ.
Some modification work was done to the room making it more receptive to achieving a decent sound. Batlan purchased a Teac Tascom Series 4-track cassette recorder, two Shure SM57 microphones, and two microphone stands. The sound was mixed through an old Gibson Echoplex and an old Panasonic boom box acted as the mix-down deck. Batlan told journalist David McGee, "Springsteen began organizing his work for Nebraska during the first week of December — that's when I was directed to buy the four-track A cassette tape was compiled and edited at the end of the sessions, likely on 03 Jan It also included seven alternate takes and five alternate mixes.
The first person to listen to the tape was Jon Landau. Fortunately for us, Cockburn turned down the job and stuck with music. Over 35 years, the Ottawa-born musician has recorded almost as many albums while earning respect for his charitable and activist work. His many other awards have included the Tenco Award for Lifetime Achievement in Italy and 20 gold and platinum awards in Canada. As a songwriter, Cockburn is revered by fans and musicians alike.
Those CDs have been well received, but there have always been people requesting a solo live album. Since half of what I do is solo, this made sense. So here it is. Sorry it took so long. For the same reason, we chose not to apply too much polish. What you hear is what it was. We recorded all the sound checks as well as the shows. Out of these we captured songs and some random playing which turned out quite well but never ended up in the formal events.
Bernie Finkelstein had the thought that we should create a section of the album to accommodate some of these. Thanks are due to Bernie, Colin Linden, Jon Erickson, Steve Martin and Joshua Dick for making both the tour and the recording happen, and to all the promoters and venues involved, whose cooperation was crucial.
