On July 30th 2006, we loaded up
the equipment, picked up a pizza,
and headed up old route 66 at the
Zuzax exit to Randy's Zuzax Trax
recording studio in the beautiful
The second day up at Zuzax Trax, the clouds were building up and it looked like we might
get some rain. By the time we started into the song, "Drown In My Own Tears", you
could hear some distant claps of thunder. By the time Joanie got to the line, "it feels
like it's raining all the time", the clouds opened up and it started pouring. We just hoped
that the lightning would hold off until the end of the song. Sure enough, a bolt of
lightning knocked out the electricity just after we finished recording. So we went into
the house and ate one of Joanie's home cooked dishes and waited out the storm.
"RAINING MUSIC"...a true story
A BIG THANKS
to the guest
musical talent to
this CD project!!!
About the Album Cover:
When we opened up the Microsoft "Paint" program to make a CD
cover, we had no idea of what we were doing or where we were
going with it. We just gave ourselves a green light and started
putting in just about everything that we could come up with. There
actually is a logic and meaning with the characters which frame the
photo. We started with the sun, just because we liked the
sunglasses, and we threw in the hot air balloons and the roadrunner
just 'cause they look good against the Sandia Mountains, but
everything else represents something that is mentioned or explained
somewhere in the website. Find the clues and be an enlightened
Combo Special fan. If you give up and need the answers we will
email them to you.
