Notes from Bob: "I had been wanting to do a song about solar power and this song sort of popped out of the air. Though it was recorded quite a few years ago, it was a real milestone for me in terms of production and arrangement. "
Musicians: Bob Sellon: Vocals, guitars, bass, keys, MIDI sequencing (drums)
Producer(s): Bob Sellon, Dave Chislett
Recording Notes: "I had been working on the song idea for about a year when I got started on this version of the song. I had recorded most of the basic tracks when I brought my buddy Dave Chislett in to help finish it up. Dave suggested some minor (but important) lyrical and vocal melody changes to the song and did the mix for it (with me helping out)."
Technical Notes: This version of "Power From The Sun" was recorded and mixed entirely on a Lexicon Opus Digital Audio Workstation one of the worlds first digital audio recording systems. The system had an obsenely large hard drive for the time: 680 megs! What are you going to do with all that space. The disk drive itself was the size of a small refrigerator. At the time, Opus only handled 8 tracks at a time so we had to do a lot of track bouncing (not as painful as it could have been thanks to the system's automation but still relatively unpleasant).
Thanks to Dave Saganey for lending me his bass guitar for this track. - Bob
