Don is writing a series of posts on the epic 7 days of recording sessions at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, New York. Here’s an installment:

“So we had a concept, record an entire album in 7 days.  We had a great demo recorded live at Spectrum Recording Studios to help us fine tune the 11 songs.  Where to do it?  Scott’s friend Craig Snyder at CR Guitars in Rhinebeck, NY suggested we check out The Clubhouse and Paul Antonell. 

A farmhouse and barn built in the late 1800’s with a new studio attatched to it on 7 acres, it sounded ideal, and in July Scott and I flew up to check it out and meet Paul.  We flew into Newburgh, drove to Daryl Hall’s Daryl’s House club in Pawling for lunch (closed!) drove by the Clubhouse, and GPS’s our way to West Saugerties and Big Pink, where The Band recorded with Dylan. 

Already we could feel an inspirational vibe from the rich musical history of the area.  Time to drive back to The Clubhouse and meet Paul.”

    Hi Cuz: I saw pics of you a while back and I would not have recognized you in a million years.
    It would be nice to have a family reunion with you, Kenny and Judy.
    If your up in Jersey some time, maybe we can get together for lunch or dinner.

    Regards,

    Cousin Bob

      Hi Bob –
      Didn’t have a beard or grey hair when I left Jersey at 14 of course. Many fond memories of holidays and visits to my godfather’s home and down at Beach Haven. Ken lives in Tampa, my mom also – will be 92 in April. That’s a date if I find myself heading up that way.
      Best Regards,
      Don
