This record was recorded at Juan Croucier’s The Cellar recording studio in 1995, over a six-month period. It was engineered by Juan Croucier and produced by Jake E. Lee. There is a considerable amount of money, hard work and time invested in these masters. They are original and in excellent condition. This recording session was never totally finished and the studio was never paid for the studio time incurred. Therefore, we are offering these masters to anyone who would like to invest in a very rare piece of rock music history.
Jake E. Lee, when on to quickly rerecord this record with another producer and studio. The other version of this record was released sometime in 1996 on Pony Canyon. This is the original version of his “vision” for the record. These tracks were methodically and painstakingly put together before he went over budget. He used over one hundred individual guitar effects peddles on this record – some of which, he built himself.
Jake E. Lee, programmed the drums, played bass, rhythm guitars, lead guitars and more.
There is also a bonus track; a cover version of a Jeff Beck song called Rice Pudding that was recorded for a tribute record to Jeff Beck called Jeffology and features Ray Luzier on drums and Jake performing all the other instruments. This track was engineered and mixed by Juan Croucier.
