Comments from Richard in his "Notes from the Road " :
A trip down to Guy's room at noon to do a bit of recording at John McCusker's request for an album he's completing for his wife, the brilliant Irish singer Heidi Talbot. I've been a fan of Heidi's ever since John first introduced me to her and am flattered to be a part of this new record. With a very simple set up in the hotel room we were able to overdub my part onto two songs. While I tend to favour more traditional recording methods like a studio and analogue tape, I cannot deny how convenient it is with just a good mic, pre-amp and lap top to record almost anywhere with such little fuss. It certainly worked out that way yesterday afternoon as I wandered in with a guitar and small amp, in t-shirt and shorts, plugged in, flopped down on the couch with a vista of the Rocky Mountains behind me and did a session. Mike McGoldrick engineered, Guy helped out with some sonic and musical suggestions and John produced. Everyone seemed pleased and I couldn't be happier.
