Welcome to the Stage Stuff page! (Thanks for checking it out.)
How did all this start? I guess we need to go back to the days when all I had was a multi-track cassette recorder, a cheap microphone, an acoustic and electric guitar, a sequencing keyboard, and VERY LITTLE knowledge. Back then (as I do today), I was using home-made backing tracks for my solo performances. Some of them inspired by the recordings of the original artists, and other arrangements from my own imagination. (I have kind of a low voice, so the key changing dictates that I get creative.)
Now – back in the early 90s – MANY people (including my mom) were asking me if I had any recordings of these songs. They kept hounding me and hounding me until I finally gave in and got to work!
I won’t bore you with the details of the recording process, but it involves…
The result is what you hear on this album… warts and all.
I REALLY do wish I still had the individual tracks to remix and correct, but it was too long ago. The tapes and machine have since gone the way of the Dodo! I’m just glad that I had the where-with-all to digitize the final mixes when I moved to digital recording.
What you’re hearing is exactly what I did back then, albeit mastered for 2019 listening. GEEZ!! I sounded so young back then!!
The mistakes are all there, poor choices, poor monitoring,
OK… enough with the excuses… let’s get on with it…

UP ON A ROOF
BABY CAN I HOLD YOU TONIGHT
ONE HAND, ONE HEART
HOOKED ON THE MEMORY OF YOU
WHEN I FALL IN LOVE
WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW
I’VE FOUND SOMEONE OF MY OWN
The links will bring you to the Wikipedia page of the song itself so you know which genius wrote which song.
Thanks for listening… - ml
