This song was written by Harry Nilsson for the “Popeye” original motion picture soundtrack. Our version is being released to generate interest before revealing exciting news in the coming weeks. And as a thank you.
Recorded & manipulated by Zach Shipps. Special thanks to Casimer (of Casimer & Casimir) for vocal assistance, Christian Doble for sax assistance, Doldrum Design for layout, The Mysterious Karsten for the photo, and Emma Johnston for bringing our drunken pirate cover star to life!
*It should be mentioned that the “stand up” bass sound on this recording was created by Matt Van playing Zach’s 1963 Fender Precision bass (unplugged during the recording) in front of a microphone. Matthew was told to hold his breath the entire time, in order to achieve this acoustic bass sound without interruption. The ENTIRE….TIME. Now THAT’s dedication.
