Yesterday afternoon you weren't so grey....

After a walk along the promenade with Dusty Springfield and Burt Bacharach, I must say 'Tree Frog' is coming along nicely. Whilst Fuzzy lay down some vocals, Neil switched off all the lights, except one lamp (Fuzzy is afraid of the dark) to get his vocalist in the mood. The control room took on the appearance of some sort of 1960's spaceship and, all was well. With the track now lavish in horns, vibes, piano and soon to be strings, it bares all the hallmarks of one of Love of the Brave's greatest inspirations, Burt Bacharach.

Sometimes bizarre things happen when you're recording. The song is set on a beachfront and without meaning to, the sound of seagulls appeared in the track; either we imagined them there or more likely an incidental occurrence occurred from the mixture of instruments, but they are truly there!

Coincidence is a old funny thing....
