My Recorded Cover Songs – 867-5309 (Jenny Jenny)

April 26th, 2012 . by Alexander Fisher

867-5309I got to thinking about the band Tommy Tutone the other day. I recorded their song 867-5309/Jenny back in the 1990’s. I had acquired their LP from a used record store in Lima, Ohio. Sometime after that I recorded this song. I had a mix of it that I had made back then. I think I reprocessed this song once before, but I couldn’t find my converted files. I transferred the tapes to digital again and did my magic on the unsynchronized tracks spread over two different sessions. The tracks actually were very easy to sync. I added some bass drum in the fills, the main weakness of my analog recording days. I did a little work editing the vocals, but everything is as it was back then mostly. I think it came out better this time, than last.

I sang, and played all of the instruments. The guitars are an Ibanez Les Paul and a Fender Stratocaster electric. The bass was a Rickenbacker 4001. The drums sounds are from a Boss Dr. Rhythm drum machine and were played on Yamaha MIDI drum pads. I originally recorded the song on my analog Yamaha MT-1000 4 track recorder. I processed it with Cakewalk Sonar 8.5 Producer and Sony Sound Forge 9.
