NOTES:

We recorded this song in about 20 minutes. Suddenly one of the musicians announced he had to go but we convinced him to stay for a few more minutes.

Have always loved this tune and wanted to try it a little differently with a shuffle for fun … but we had never ever played the song together before.

So I shouted out instructions as best I could until Al started counting us in.

We played it through once and it came off not bad … couple of mistakes.

Quickly called out where we went wrong as Al stated counting us in again.

And that was it! … hard to believe we got what we got … the organ is stunning!

A comment on just how good these players are … never cease to amaze me.

We overdubbed the background vocals later … a fun song … hope you enjoy.

NOTES:

Raining Fire was written in 1985 to address the issue of acid rain.

The song was then submitted to The Acid Rain Coalition … who didn’t even have the decency to acknowledge they had received it! … let alone use it in any way.

Since then, when it comes to the environment things have only gotten much worse.

And the song can and does address the catastrophe we are now facing as a whole.

We have recorded the song several times over the years and made a video of it too.

You could drive a truck along the groove the band lays down here, solid as a rock.

And Graham Young’s guitar solo is just wonderful … as always … liquid fire.
