about

This recording project began with a conversation between Steve and myself after my remarking on the rather modest production of many of the early Beatles releases. Always a casual appreciator of The Beatles catalog, I would often point to where I think things- despite their collective brilliance- may have been somewhat hastily produced. Listening to the original recordings of "Wait" and "There's A Place," among others, I quipped that "..well, this is obviously a great song. If I someone brought me this demo today I would give it this kind of production!" Ah, hubris. So began a journey of discovery, recovery, and Crispin Glovery.... well, not entirely, but you get the idea.

Please enjoy this offering in rested assurance that we, The Bon Crowes, are, to the ears of all who may discern such delicate matters, quite better than The Beatles, thank you very much.
