Joseph Porter, Annie Hatcher, Bambi and Jessi Adams
the time Jessie Adams and Bambi joined the band, the old Wicked Women
recordings were mouldering in their graves, and were no longer of interest
to any but the most ardent collectors of old vinyl and antique religious
artifacts. 'Let's re-record them,' we said. 'Bigger, better, and with
keyboards.' And so we did. The cunning ploy of offering a Geri Halliwell
CD as a reward to the person recording the most 'first takes' ensured
that the CD was recorded in record time. Annie would have won it, but
Jessie kept inventing tiny guitar overdubs purely to notch up his total.
Rotten cheat. Thanks to Tom Savage at Jigsaw studio, who engineered and
produced it, and to his dad for the Marsh Marigolds, which, we are happy
to report, survived the trip and are thriving.
