The Inside Story

- by Rob Rosen

The original vision was to create a tune which sounded as if Bob Marley had decided to cover Gentle Giant. Instead, we ended up with something that sounded much closer to Gentle Giant covering Bob Marley. Although not what we intended, the result hopefully holds your interest.

Instrumentation includes:

  • Keyboards (EMU Vintage Keys, Ensoniq ESQ-1)
  • Bass guitar (Rickenbacker 4001/5, double-tracked through SansAmp and Acoustic/JBL amplication)
  • Guitar (Fender Strat Ultra, Mesa Boogie amplification)
  • Percussion (Roland R-8, afuche')
  • Recording console: Tascam 38 through Tascam M216 mixer; mixdown to Tascam DA30.
