|Lee Ranaldo and the Dust Acoustic Dust Limited Vinyl LP
· The sessions for this album came about by coincidence. In
April 2013 The Dust were on tour in Europe. We had an
unusual show scheduled at a small festival out in the
desert near Marrakech, Morocco, which fell in the middle
of our tour, and which fell through, as these things often
do, at the very last minute, just days before the gig was to
take place. It left a big hole right in the middle of our tour.
· To the rescue came our Spanish tour promoters, Carles
and Jordi, who secured for us an apartment in Barcelona
for the week, and suggested that we use our downtime to
do some recording in a small studio there.
· The band had a small handful of acoustic shows under our
belt by this time, and we were keen for the opportunity to
try some recordings in an acoustic setting. Acoustic Dust!
· We hooked up with Raül Fernandez Refree, our engineer
for the sessions. Raul was great in the studio and we all
immediately became fast friends. Another friend from
Portugal, João Paulo Feliciano was also in Barcelona at the
time, and we invited him in to add some Hammond Organ.
· In four or five days we tracked 14 or 15 songs, choosing
some from my album ‘Between The Times And The Tides’,
plus a few from the record we were still working on at the
time, ‘Last Night On Earth’, and some cover songs too.
