It Ain’t No Use: For Gregg Allman

This past January, I released the And We Dream remaster. I decided not to license and include the three covers originally recorded for that album. One of those covers was It Ain’t No Use, which I had heard on Gregg Allman’s ‘Playing Up A Storm’ album released in 1977. The song was written by Bernie Baum, Bill Giant, and Florence Kaye. I wanted to remix the track, to include the drums keys and strings the original mix had, but was unable to (which I explained here when I released the remaster). But I was able to do a remix using just the analog 8 tracks that I transferred a few years back. So here you have a very stripped down version. I hope you enjoy it.

I loved Gregg Allman’s music from the moment I first heard the Allman Brothers Band.  Some of the first songs we ever jammed on in high school were Allman Brothers songs. This was originally recorded as a tribute to him on Feb. 12, 1992. Thought this a good time to share it, as he passed away last weekend.

Hard to Let Go Single Released

 

I was trying to clean up this picture of my Mom, from a large collection sent to me by my daughter Akysia.  This picture really got me, and is unlike any other of my mom.  The original had ‘Un-Retouched Proof’ stamped on it, so had to do some Photoshop trickery to get that off best I could.  Once I was done, the picture reminded me of ‘Hard to Let Go’, a song from Living with Fiction that was written with her in mind.  30 minutes later, the artwork was done as well as a quick remaster and the track was uploaded for release….on April 24th, my Mom’s birthday.

Purple Rain Recording From 1985

With yesterdays sad news, it wasn’t long before I remembered I had once recorded a Prince song.  I loved the song Purple Rain at the time, and must have felt like I could do it justice. Whether I did or not is another question. This track was included on the album ‘Inner Dialogues‘, and is one of only a handful of cover songs I’ve ever attempted.  And I’m pretty sure it’s the only 5 minute guitar solo I’ve ever recorded.  This is currently not for sale or download, but you can stream it below.  If you think I should release it….let me know. #?PrinceRIP?

Paul Kitchen | Everyone Says ‘Hi’

I’m very excited about this track. I got the idea last Friday that I’d like to record a David Bowie song.  And here we are a week later and its mastered, shipped and in most online stores. And I think it turned out great. David Bowie made it easy by writing a great song. This is my tribute to him. Everyone Says ‘Hi’.

Hope you enjoy it,
Paul
