  • Sessions begin for Daniel Amos' second album, which would eventually be called Shotgun Angel. In this first session which lasted from 1PM-6PM, basic tracks were recorded for "Black Gold Fever" and "Praise Song" at Martinsound Studios in Alhambra, CA.

    Jonathan David Brown: "Speechless, humble servant ... privilege to work on this recording with every band member of DA, and all side-men, during that era. We had major fun. But I do seem to remember that we were all trying to emulate and out-do everything we liked. So we kinda went over the top.

    The thing that probably made this recording happen is the deal I made with Joe Martinson at his family owned and operated studio in Alhambra, CA, 'Martinsound.' Joe was constantly experimenting with gadgets, and console modifications. He told me he could use the DA project as "guinea pig" while he performed mods on the MCI JH-400 series console and fixed other bugs in his new 'Studio B.'

    We probably used up, I recall, over 515 hours of time with this deal - for what probably was only about 250 actually billed. That was a God-thing. Time = better recording. But I, and we, got chastised (read: ridiculed) by M!M staff for spending so much time."

    JDB: "(To Jerry) Remember your phase shifter? I mis-spoke it once as 'shaze phister' - which you or Terry turned into 'shaved sister...' which somebody then turned into 'Shaved Fish.' At that time, I was not aware that John Lennon's 7th album was entitled Shaved Fish, and wondered how we had morphed into such madness after seeing his album cover later. THEN, I found a drawn picture in Rolling Stone or something of a guy walking and whistling - whose head was a fish with a crew-cut! That really weirded me out. - it was like we were all tapped into some "channel." I just remember laughing constantly. The endorphins really enhanced the creativity.

    Jerry: "Thanks for that story. I had forgotten that it all started with my MXR Phase Shifter! Haha! I'm going to have to save your post so I don.t forget the story! I remember that we hung the Shaved Fish character on the wall outside of The Rebel Base, where it was proudly on display for all to enjoy..."

    Marty: "That's why we all worked so well together....we we're all very well connected to each others ideas and CRAZINESS!!! I don't think anyone was shot down for any idea during those sessions. Studio B was so cozy. I remember doing some overdubs one day in Studio A, it was so huge and cold feeling."

    JDB: "Studio A was kinda 'swooshy' and large. I remember I had to re-mix 'Father's Arms' in there because I couldn't get back into Producer's workshop to re-do it. Sonically it was great, but studio B was more like Producer's ... as you said, 'cozy.'"

    Jerry: "The bulk of the solo was played on my '69 Gibson ES335. The mellow middle section was a vintage Fender Strat. As far as I can recall, on SA, I mostly played through a '60s black face Fender Tremelux head and a 2 x 12 Fender cab. I may have also used other '60s black face Fender amps (heads w/closed cabs or open back combos) with either two 12" custom Eminence speakers or possibly one 12" in some instances. I also played through a Leslie speaker on 'Praise Song' and 'Better.' I was doing a lot of trading at the time with a great guitar store in Long Beach, CA called Guitars Afire. I borrowed several guitars and amps (and bought a few) from them to use on Shotgun Angel."

    Jerry: "Well, yeah, everything WAS built around my solo, since the guitar was recorded first. But the way the orchestration weaves in and out in the mix and the choices (JDB) made to feature the orchestration in parts (instead of the guitar) make the solo work even better to me. Hence, my complements to (JDB) and to Mr. Stipech (aka James Gabriel) for enhancing the solo..."

    Mark Cook of Daniel Amos and Bill Hoppe of Aslan
    (DA's Mark Cook and Bill Hoppe of Aslan)
  • Bill Hoppe of Aslan records overdubs for "Sail Me Away" at Martinsound Studios in Alhambra, CA.
    Bill Hoppe of Aslan remembers: "I had the distinct pleasure of performing on Shotgun Angel, though my name was mistakenly excluded from the album's credits (although, the omission was corrected on the Deluxe 2CD Reissue). I was recruited by DA and their producer, Jonathan David Brown, to create the "bomb whistle" sound effects at the end of "Sail Me Away" with my ARP Odyssey synthesizer. I also added a spur-of-the-moment synthesizer percussion effect in the middle of "He's Gonna Do A Number On You." At roughly the same time as Shotgun Angel was in production (early 1977), Jonathan David Brown also produced Aslan's recording debut, the song "Who Loves The Lonely," for the Maranatha 6 LP.
    I still remember sitting in the studio's control room (we just plugged the synthesizer directly into the recording console) with Jonathan and some of the DA guys and trying to produce the sounds that they wanted. After a bit of patience-trying trial and error (remember, this was long before digital keyboards--everything had to be patched manually), we succeeded.
    Afterwards, the guys were so excited about the entire project that they asked me to stay at the studio for awhile to listen to it from start to finish. When it was over, I felt as if I'd heard what was perhaps the Christian equivalent of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper. Yes, of course I was overwhelmed, but this was 1977, not 1999. Truly nothing like it had ever been done. I could only hope that Aslan's planned recording project would sound half as good--alas, we didn't get the chance, and that never happened."

    Terry: "An expression of all the places we wanted to go as artists. That was the seed from which all the branches are now growing. I wanted to be the Beatles, not the Eagles. I wanted to do all kinds of music. I wanted people to love to go into the record store and buy our record because they were going to be surprised by what they heard."
