Not sure exactly when my version was taken over by the 1980s but it seems to work so I kept it. At this point in the project, my hard drive was full and I was hoping to just finish this song before doing another backup. Bad idea! Somehow, all the bass and drums had disappeared the next day so I had to re-do them. The snare drum was not easy. I don't have sequencers or fancy gear, so every snare you hear is copied and pasted to form the rhythm patterns manually and then volume is added to each hit to give it depth, otherwise it would sound like a machine gun. Seven years of playing snare in marching bands will make you picky about such things.
My dear loyal supporter, Peter Finan aka Uncle Skinny, you've been looking forward to this one for a while so I'm dedicating it to you!
