The story behind Ghost of Summers Past: Most of these songs were written when I was in my late teens and early twenties. Other than the song My Great Uncle Jim, I don’t think I have even performed any of these songs live since back then.
I started working on this recording in the early '90's, believe it or not. Jamey Reid and I cut most of the rhythm guitar and drum tracks first. Although I had been playing guitar in bands for about 10 years at that point, I hadn’t been singing for very long and I remember that I wasn’t all that happy with my vocal performances. So for that or some other reason, I dropped the whole project midway through. From time to time over the years I was reminded of the orphaned project when one of these songs would drift through my head, or when I would move and have to carry the box of tapes from an old closet to a new one. “Hmmm, maybe I should finish this…”, I’d think, and then a few more years would go by.
Fast forward to 2008. I don’t know why, but one day I decided it was time to finish this record. I still wasn’t happy with those old vocal performances, so I redid all the vocals, and then did the rest of the overdubs. Jamey and I cut a few more songs at Airtime Studios to round out the CD. Around this time I also wrote the song A Little Older Now. It seemed like a fitting addition to the project, which ended up being kind of a collaboration between my current self and my younger self. I hope you'll enjoy it.
