This project was recorded live with no overdubs in a partially gutted living room at Tigre Manor, the hilltop lair where Beth and Phil live in Tucson. Chris Rival, a wonderful, amazingly talented and big-hearted engineer was kind enough to fly from Boston to record us in this hot, dusty, unlikely location with views of the mountains and city. Later, we mixed the project with Nathan Sabatino, another great friend and fantastic engineer based in Tucson and Philadelphia. We are very grateful to our families, friends, fans, and to Chris, Nathan, Jim, Jade and Milo for bringing this project across the finish line. This album is called “For Rose”, because it is actually for Rose, Mark’s beautiful and wonderful wife–our friend, who had a tough year and is now once again blooming and shining. We love you Rose!
