First Class Ticket is the first of Tony's originals to grace the PBGB Blog. Tony wrote the song, sang it and played the bass............ then dove headlong into the production. He set himself up with Logic software and set about unravelling the mysteries of mixing / production.
The black arts of mixing and production are enough to make anybody tear their hair out. Desperate L Platers seek out whatever help they can get, from any quarter.
Tony found a helper in Merimbula local Eden Hendry. Eden uses Logic as a tool for producing electronic music. He's keen to make a career out of mixing and production but hadn't had the opportunity to mix 'live' recordings. So he was happy to dive into the First Class Ticket audio files with Tony. He enjoyed that, and now he plans to check out The Shed, and we are looking forward to meeting him.............who knows what might happen.
First Class Ticket is Tony's first PBGB 'production'. It's a great start Tony, well done sir ! You're off and running, and bound to get better and better at it.
As for the song, Tony explains.............
"First Class Ticket is a song about what we don't know about death. What happens to us ?
If we believe in God, and heaven and hell, then we will presumably be predisposed to practice good deeds.
But none of us is perfect.......we have all made mistakes.
So if I'm going to hell I want to go in style, and take my time getting there. But if I'm going to heaven then I'm cool, I'll take any seat on offer."
Sounds fair to us !!
Well done Tony.............a splendid first attempt !!!
