I usually made my demos in Hollywood at the famous Gold Star
Studios with the legendary Stan Ross manning the board.
I MET HER TODAY was an exception. I played and sang
it live for the Aberbachs (Hill & Range Songs) in their
offices in the Brill Building at 1650 Broadway in New York
City (where many music publishers were located) and they wanted
me to make a demo right away, so I went to a little studio
nearby (just voice and piano as I recall). After 1960, I made
some of my demos in Nashville. ChetAtkins once told me that
my renditions were at their best
when I played and sang at the same time - that I sounded different
than when I overdubbed the vocals. I find it more demanding
and harderto do, doing it at the same time, but if it sounds
better I guess it's worth it.
