Well I’ve now been at Meadow Farm for 30 years and whilst sorting through some archive recordings for John Tams the other day I came across this track, Dark in the Dayligh sung by Jim Boyes. I remember recording it probably around 89/90 as for me, musically, it was one of those sessions you don’t forget due to some amazing Bass playing by Rik Kemp. When the session was finished and they’d all gone home I decided to put some Trumpet on and have a bit of fun re-mixing it with the Bass quit high up in the mix and locking onto one of his riffs during the fade. Might not be to everybody’s taste I guess but I loved it …. Good old days of analogue the razor and the ‘Octopus’ mix.
