“Make Yourself Happy“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. I’m kind of surprised I ended up writing a song with this particular groove -shows once again what little control I have over what I do. Also, I’m not much of a do-it-yourself-er in actuality -generally prefer having almost anyone else doing almost anything else -but sometimes you’ve just got to be practical.
This also features rare lead vocal turns from my longtime cohorts Dinty Child and Fred Boak (aka The Valet.) I’ve always intended to feature other folks’ singing in the CTP more than we have; perhaps this will help get the ball rolling!
