Podcast Episode 19 Q6. Paul Kitchen | Live from the InSync Asylum

The Making of the New Album & Three Live Performances. Episode 19 of Live from the InSync Asylum!

Welcome to Episode 19 of my podcast.  Let me take you on a tour of over 40 years of words and music, Live from the InSync Asylum. Featuring rare and unreleased music as well as live performances. This episode features a track written by Dan Penn and info on the Making of the new album ‘Live From the inSync Asylum: Volume 1‘, as well as live performances of ‘Running down This Road’, ‘I’m Still in Love With You’ and ‘Crazy Wind’. 

Paul Kitchen | Running down This Road Live From the inSync Asylum 6-19-2020. The 15th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’. Running down This Road is from my 2015 album ‘Living with Fiction‘, released on my 58th birthday. It’s one of the only songs from my long dry spell, and actually was started in 2009 I think. I found my way out of a dark stretch, and Living with Fiction was the vehicle. For the backing track, I took the album track and stripped it down, changed the drum kit and added a couple new loops at the end. Live vocal and guitar 6-19…

Paul Kitchen | I’m Still in Love With You Live From the inSync Asylum 7-1-2020. The 16th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’. I wrote I’m Still in Love With You in 1984. It was originally on a collection of songs called ‘Petty Tyrant’. In 1999 I attempted another version of the song, intended for my ‘A Matter of Time’ album, but for whatever reason didn’t include it. At that time, I was using Logic Audio on the PC. I’ve only recently figured out how to piece those tracks back together, and get them into my current day DAW Cubase. For the backing track of this live version, I used mostly the ’99 track, but tweaked stripped added beats, drums, guitar and keys. I then imported the Prophet 600 synth bass track from the ’84 version. I did four takes of the song adding live vocal and strat – two of which broke down halfway thru. This is a comp of take 2 and 4 – the complete takes.

Paul Kitchen | Crazy Wind Live From the inSync Asylum. The 17th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’. I wrote the song Crazy Wind 38 years ago. It was included on an early collection of songs of mine titled ‘Silent Tears’, which I finished in July of 1982. It took me a bit of time to figure out how to play this song now. The recordings from back then are in tune with themselves hopefully, but not so much my digital tuner today. If you want to hear the earlier recording, check out Episode 11 of my Podcast. For the backing track for this, there was nothing from the 1982 recording I could use, so I recorded Guitars, Keys, Drums and Percussion for this prior to doing the live take. It’s a quirky catchy tune – be sure you want it in your head before listening…

Also included is track from my recent album Magic Moon as well as the stories behind them. Music not available anywhere else!

Podcast Episode 18 Q5. Paul Kitchen | Live from the InSync Asylum

Three Live Performances. Episode 18 of Live from the InSync Asylum!

Welcome to Episode 18 of my podcast.  Let me take you on a tour of over 40 years of words and music, Live from the InSync Asylum. Featuring rare and unreleased music as well as live performances. This episode features tracks written by Tony Joe White and Jackie DeShannon, as well as live performances of ‘The Present’, ‘When You Tell Me You Love Me’ and ‘Civilized Man’. 

The Present | Live From the inSync Asylum 6-2-2020. I wrote this song in the fall of 1981. I was 23 years old. It was originally recorded in ’81 on a collection of songs called ‘Metallic Scorn’ . The backing track for this live version is from around August 1986, and from what I can tell never finished. I added drums and strat the other day, but kept the synth bass and jangly electric parts from ’86. I was 28 years old at the time.

When You Tell Me You Love Me | Live From the inSync Asylum 6-13-2020. The 14th date on my ‘No Rhyme or Reason Tour’. This was the lead off track to my most recent album of original music, 2018’s ‘Blue Tattoo‘. It was a pretty dark album, as it was recorded as I turned 60. You can read more about it here. The backing track for this was from the stripped mix released in 2019, and stripped even further. I added new percussion loops at the end, plus the live vocal and acoustic.

Civilized Man | Live From the inSync Asylum 6-2-2020. I wrote this song summer of 1987. I was 29 years old. It was originally recorded in ’87 on a collection of songs called ‘No Poetry Allowed’ (unreleased, but remains one of my favorties) . The backing track for this live version is from that time frame, and recorded on a Tascam 38 on half inch tape. Very little remains in this live version – a little bit of one keyboard track. Other than that, I added drums; guitars, bass, b vox and a little keys the past couple days.

Also included are tracks from my recent album Magic Moon, Wheelhouse and And We Dream, as well as the stories behind them. Music not available anywhere else!

Podcast Episode 16 Q3. Paul Kitchen | Live from the InSync Asylum

Two Live Performances and two unreleased tracks from Trip Note. Episode 16 of Live from the InSync Asylum!

Welcome to Episode 16 of my podcast.  Let me take you on a tour of over 40 years of words and music, Live from the InSync Asylum. Featuring rare and unreleased music as well as live performances. This episode features two unreleased tracks from Trip Note, as well as live performances of Out of the Blue and Petty Tyrant. 

I wrote Petty Tyrant in 1984. Last time I played it was around 1988 (which was also pretty much the last time I played with a band). It was inspired by Carlos Castaneda. But it sounds like Buddhist take on the ego to me now. Interesting.

Also included are tracks from my recent album Magic Moon and A Matter of Time, and the stories behind them. Music not available anywhere else! Click here for the video of the live in studio performance of Out of the Blue. Click here to view the Petty Tyrant video.
