When Gold Circle closed their music department Norm Waitt very graciously gave me back my masters for Figure in a Landscape. I was working with Jeffrey Steel in Nashville. I had the title. The guitar hook. The plot and the basic melody. I couldn’t do a thing with it! (wood for the trees) I sort of hit it off with Jeff and played him the pieces without being coy. He’s a great, gifted guy. I watched him screw it all together like a mechanic and throw his own magic at it. Hey presto! I recorded two acoustic songs in Scott Baggett’s studio down the street in Berry Hill (Tennessee) with Damon Johnson on guitar added them to the best of Figure, remastered the lot and put it out on my label, No Brakes.
