PETE GAGE - Out Of Hours
TEXT OF THE BOOKLET:
In January 1997, fresh from an intensive 3-month European tour as lead vocalist with Dr Feelgood, I had the good fortune to do some radio in my favorite city of Helsinki. I had been invited by Teppo Nattila to play some solo blues piano and vocals on Teppo's Radiomafia Show. The response was good, with sound engineer Kari Ahola creating such a lively and intimate sound that the natural progression was for us to work together on an album. The outcome is this, my first solo album, and a long way removed from the hectic but satisfying demands of fronting Dr Feelgood.
These tunes comprise a handful of blues standards which have meant the most to me over a lifetime of listening, plus one of my own compositions just for good measure. The piano arrangements are simple, so the voice is to the fore: What welve captured is a more introspective Pete Gage, as near as possible to how I play in those private moments at home by myself - out of hours.
Pete Gage, June 1997
the memory of George Gage, my Dad (1911-1995).
Recorded 2nd and 3rd June 1997 at Seawolf Studios, Helsinki, Finland.
With thanks to Kevin, Phil, Steve and Chris.
