During end of 2003 beginning of 2004 I wrote this country & western kind of Jaming thing. At the time i was composing house music or R&B & i wanted to dab my pen slightly north of my usual sphere. Graeme Davis helped me out on vocal, the whole bottle of Jack Daniels endeavoured to deliver a fun day also came in handy for Finbar Campbell to slide the guitar. I'm obviously not a "Country Boy" a "Devil in Disguise" or Jim Steinman , and on this last listen i noticed a few rhymers have slipped the nets. Explanatory note : Elvis died four days after my first birthday, in 1977 he was 42 and had been eating a burger on the toilet according to legend. This a Robert Johnson spiritual of communicating with Elvis on the "Dead line" is far fetched fun for not to avidly correct jokers.
When 1044 records chicago dropped us for set me free , we were lucky to get interest from 101 records, they gave us a chance, sadly the single and the doo doo doo mix didn't go gold or even sell more than a few thousand, not a true original lyrically or musically, borrowing a mousse T loop from sex bomb & a Darren kay trumpet riff Dj Jamie Richards & myself ended up learning more about ill equipped record contracts than live PA's and appearances on TOTP's
This 1998 Darae Palmer vocal was never released. It was recorded over 60 hours in whipendale rd at Lapaar Studios & part of a small album. The points based contract couldn't be settled & was never signed. A lot of copies were delivered & gospel choir hired. the 2nd time lucky rule also didn't help :(
Heres how "Relax in Satisfaction" was delivered to Smoking' Beats Records Luton 2001. The Re-mix then began. None of the music, keys parts, chords, 116Bpm tempo etc nothing remained apart from vocal. Smoking' Beats Paul Landon also shortened the title to just "Satisfaction" Not our idea of a unique or explanatory title of what our song explored,
Buddy of mine recorded this not too long ago, hopefully you can surprise him with a follow
