From the recording Save the Whale/Sorteo
Save the Whale features Dee Dee Jones on vocals, Rick Andrews on synthesizer, me on guitars and vocals. I wrote this song in 1979 during the era of whale awareness in movies, the news, etc. I presented this song to the band and one night Rick and I decided the intro should have the sounds of rain and thunder, so we recorded the "waves" by putting the microphone outside during a thunderstorm.
Sorteo follows featuring Mike McManus on bass, Rick Andrews on keyboards, Charles Pittman on drums, and me on guitars.
