Ernie, its Eddie Reasoner, I don't know if you remember me or not but I hung out at the sound shop a bit with you when I was just a teenager. Check out my website at www.nashangelesmusic.com and it will probably ring a bell. Gosh it's been forever...I was there when you played me the original mix of "Stealin in the name of the Lord" ......Man I'm sure glad to hear your still around are you still with Montie? I'm currently spending half my time between Nashville and LA, I'm in LA at the moment, the website will catch you up. Hope to hear from you soon. Remember, bass player Tommy Tow who worked for Goldsboro when you did all that stuff? He and I are best of friends these days....Gosh so Great to know you're out there. Eddie Reasoner
Great to hear Joanna (Dean) Jacobs. I was in her Memphis-based Hard Rock band that Eli Ball produced in the late 80s. Boy-that was a one way trip through "Confessions of a Record Producer"-Yow! At least I know what to warn the bands I produce about....
P.S. Really appreciated the Ronzo info. I thought that was the case....
Hell yea we cut some good records together. I am doing great. Still doing sessions here in Shoals and I get up to Nash now and then. Teaching 2 days a wk, play in 2 R&B bands, and a jazz quartet and hangin on the lake. I love this site for hooking up with buds from the past. Take care, enjoy retirement to the fullest and stay in touch..
Well, Ern, I may need a doctor's note for Soundshop coffee, but I still work there every once in a while, and I'd love to meet up and catch up. I'll send you my contact numbers through the message board
Ernie Yerfniw! Great to hear from you , Bro. We've had a lot fun in the studio through the years, haven't we? Great memories. Lots of funny stories. It's weird that you bring up the Fallenrock album...You're like, the 5th person in the last 10 days to mention that to me. Maybe I need to revisit that project for song pitches or re-cuts? Who knows? Anyway, I'm glad you still love it. I know I do. Please hollah at me sometime and we'll get a cup of coffee... although maybe not as strong as the ol' Soundshop coffee, though...that stuff would melt through metal...but it sure kept us going! HA! Blessings...Pip
yeah, well, it's kind of like being in that Italian organization with the striped suits... once you're in this bidness you're always part of it! :) Great to hear from you... keep in touch, and yes, we did indeed work on some great stuff!
