Tight Rope on Tippy Toes

Today’s track is Scot’s swingin’ “Folk Punk Instrumental #2”, recorded at our Page Street apartment in San Francisco, in the mid-1980s. Scot is once again playing all the instruments. I’m pretty sure I know what he was after on this track. He wanted to experiment with slide guitar. I love the bass line rolling off the fat strings of his guitar. Scot loved to play guitar this way--really pulling out the bass notes, digging around for the roots.

Today’s artwork is about a person who has a lot going on, but feels the taught presence of the wire under her feet, guiding her on. All she has to do is take one step at a time, and not fall off.

A real toe-tapper. I can just see Scot sitting in the front room at Page Street experimenting with sounds. The artwork shows the little pink lady from Philospher's Heart planning to get ready for the big launch, so many projects to complete and yet knowing that she has security to get from point A to point B. Rock on, Robin. ML
