Wall Between Us (demo, ’90) Download Available


Originally released on the soon-to-be-discontinued Apple Music Connect platform, I’ve made “Wall Between Us (demo, ’90)” available for download for the first time on Bandcamp (the platform that powers on this site. Here’s the original release info:

Recently came across this demo of one of my earliest songs… recorded in 1990 with my good friends Ralph Warnock and Ema, at Ema’s Ikhaya Studios (the “version 1.0” location, in Herndon, VA). Beautifully recorded and mixed at the time by Ema on his Tascam 388 and mastered to DAT, those master tapes vanished, unfortunately, long ago; I have captured to digital here from this last remaining, well-worn cassete dub, via my Nakamichi MR-1 Pro cassette deck, into 96 kHz / 32-bit-float Pro Tools® session audio (cassette dropouts and all…)
