The Tim Gaze Band - Band On The Run -
Surf Film soundtrack 1979
This is a 2CD set consisting of the original demos – (1st Wave) that we did to get the approval and go-ahead from the interested parties, and then the final recordings, or the ‘real’ ones (2nd Wave), that were done and used for the final soundtrack release on the movie.
In those days, you usually had to do ‘demo’ recordings first, so as all and sundry could get an idea of what it was you were proposing to do. I remember now, thinking back, that it was all a bit weird doing a whole lot of recording, only to get the nod from those in power, to ‘go ahead with the actual recording...’, and then do it all again, with the same people, in the same studio!
Sure, it was a process, and you did uncover some different angles, but in a lot of cases, we found that the original demo recordings had more excitement and spontaneity due the fact that it was the first draught, and therefore had more of a newness and spark to the whole project. It’s like the old thing of, the more you dick with it, the more it loses it’s original character and https://www.tradebit.comway, that was how it was done then, and Peter Bolton and I figure that those original ideas deserve to be heard as well as the final recorded versions. Also there are some things in the demo recordings that didn’t make it to the final soundtrack, so that’s a bonus, while some tracks have two versions.
Hope you enjoy this chapter of recorded Australian surf music history..
