Laid Back with Corky and Friends

Leave it to the Japanese to love all things retro! My buddy, and PaddleAir team rider, Corky Carroll e-mailed me to let me know some guys in Japan are going to re-release his 1970s classic album "Laid Back, Corky Carroll and Friends. It won't be an album, of course, but a CD. Anyway, I was one of the "friends," and laid down two tracks -- Hanalei, and Chang My Mind -- along with by buddies Dave Rullo and John Close. We were called Hana at the time. The album contains a lot of good stuff from the likes of the Patterson Brothers, Denny Abberg, and Corky. It was engineered and produced by Dennis Dragon, son of Carmen Dragon and brother of Daryl Dragon of Captain and Tennille fame. So look for it soon and enjoy.

  1. Great news about this reissue - it's been near impossible to find let alone hear for the better part of 4 decades. Let us know when it's released.

  2. Will do. We all look forward to hearing it again. Seems like a lifetime ago...and it was!
