The following article recounts one night at Record One studios with Val Garay, who produced Randy’s second solo album, One More Song. On this night, they are recording the track “Deep Inside My Heart.” Tensions are high and the work is grueling and repetitious. This article provides a rare glimpse into that process and what Randy was like in the studio.
Thank You so Much Jessica for all your hard work. This article is so interesting & amazing! Your talents are so appreciated!
Glad to hear you enjoyed it, Gwen. Thanks for being a loyal reader.
Such an interesting article. Being non-musical and without rhythm I’m wondering what part of “Deep Inside My Heart” Randy meant when he advised to give a little space between the “dum-dum-dum-dum”
I wondered the same. There were a couple parts I thought it could be, but didn’t want to guess.
Thanks again for the interesting article. I don’t believe I could have survived life in the music business. God Bless our sweet Randy.
The recording sessions must have been so tedious and exhausting. Plus the pressure for it to sound perfect. My favorite line in the article is where Randy asks himself: “Is Meisner here? No, but his body is.”
You did an amazing job again Jessica. I always enjoy your articles. I am with you on the favorite line from Randy: “Is Meisner here? No, but his body is”. I bet he is a blast to be around with his sense of humor. Thanks again Jessica.
It’s my pleasure. Thanks so much for your nice comments.
What a fascinating article – thank you Jessica. I had no idea that most music was recorded during the night and that the life of a rockstar was not as glamorous as I thought! There are obviously a lot of very clever people involved.
Indeed! Nice to hear from you Judy!
I thoroughly enjoyed your research Jessica. You do Amazing stuff. Thanx
I appreciate that, Jan. Thank you.
