Anaheim overdubs

Overdubs continue on My Attorney's LP4 material.

Each time Andy and I finish a session, the song at hand has evolved and regenerated into something fresh and exciting.

In this case Cold Night In Anaheim has gone from being the ugly duckling of the session, to something colourful, chiming and beautiful.  Delicate picking parts were added to the rhythm guitar - which was subsequently removed from the arrangement.  A winding, sunny solo joined in after the first chorus... and a shimmering crescendo of strumming was played at the close of the song.

The result is something that bears little resemblance to the live version; and all the better for it.
