0 Comments NEVER GO AWAY
Posted by Vinnie V. on September 14, 2013 at 5:38 AM

I wrote "Never Go Away" in the late 1980s while working in Alaska with a

Top 40 band from Sacramento California by the name of "Spectrum".

We were performing nightly in beautiful  Sitka Alaska.

It was one late afternoon before our show started,  I left my hotel room 

Walked downstairs into the hotel's lounge and sat down at the baby grand piano.

I had been missing my girlfriend and was feeling sad and lonely when this 

Song fell out of my head and on to the piano keys.

   Those feelings and that song stayed with me for some time, It wasn't until 1994 that

I was able to record and bring to life "Never Go Away".

Composed and Arranged by Vinnie V. BMI

Posted by Vinnie V. on September 11, 2013 at 5:10 AM

This is really just an unfinished thought I had back in 1994 . I was looking for a unique groove between two different type Bass lines. Unfinished because, I was leaving Southern Oregon to move back "Home"  to Sacramento California and my musical companion Bobcat was moving on as well

Posted by Vinnie V. on September 4, 2013 at 12:23 PM

           This was the first song I recorded without a drum machine. 

All drum tracks were performed on my Ensoniq EPS sampling workstation.

The seagulls in the intro, were courtesy the nearby landfill sampled by myself 

while standing on top of my ford truck in the middle of an ocean of garbage!

The ocean  sample was from the Ensoniq EPS Clasic Library Sounds.

The bass guitar was performed live by my friend Ryan. I asked him to use a 

fretless bass for the intro and verse and a fretted P-bass for the chorus. 

I enlisted the guitar player from the band I was gigging  with, 

(The Joe MaMa Band)  a gentleman we called  "Captain Jack"  A.K.A.  Dave  McKeen

to perform the guitar track.

I played my  Selmer VII  soprano sax  for all the saxophone  tracks.

I used a Roland S-10 and Ensoniq EPS for all the other tracks including horns.

Composed and Arranged by  Vinnie V.

Recorded  August 1991 in the laundry room of my home in Southern Oregon.

This song is dedicated to my dear loving sister "Carla" . Peace Sis !
