Although it's interesting to hear her sing my words it's frustrating that she's changed just a few key words here and there in a publishing grab.  The arrangement could have been better.  And I'm not even going to mention the sample. 

Wrote these songs 13(!?) years ago with my friend Joe. She's just recorded them. Actually I think they must have been recorded in '93. I'm pretty sure the engineer's Groucho.  (I had no idea he did Night Nurse DiscoMix.)  I have our versions somewhere.  Who am I kidding, I've lost everything.  But if I could save you any time.  Volunteer = Do The Hustle Nod.

One of the melodies has more than a passing resemblance to the Gilligan's Island Theme tune revealing my long years of training.  I'm not sure if or when it's going to be released.  They tell me it is. That's the Only reason I'm listening to it.  Maybe I should get a job so I can quit in celebration.  Where's me gold.

Sometimes I miss Miami. I NEVER miss L.A.


I miss you in Miami

I absolutely love these songs; the lyrics are very 'you', Madame. Impressive stuff all in... even under the circumstances.

The second mix of "This" works and is quite good. The first one, not so much. "Volunteer" is rather weak. Both songs do sound like they are from the Sex Drive sessions that were produced by the guys from Consolidated.

well, i just wrote the words and the tune. i didn't mix them.

to paraphrase danny in withnail and i: "when i mix you, you'll know you've been mixed, mate".

i have no idea who consolidated are although i have had some experience with sex drive sessions.

noticed a lot of traffic to these tracks. anyone have any idea where it's coming from? is it an email list or a forum? just curious.

i have a bunch of other NAP tracks if anyone is interested. (Not A Penny)

thanks MAN RAY. i've never done any music in SF, except with jon hassel and pete scatturo one time.

everything i did was in london where i was schooled by trevor horn and miami where i was schooled by joe galdo.

my musical knowledge has huge holes. nme and the bbc call me the grandmother of trip hop, but to be honest, i don't think i could pick trip hop out of a crowd.

left to my own devices i would sit around listening to old school gregory issacs all day.

i appreciate you responding here and bringing me up to date. thanks.
