EDDIE OFFORD ... Liner Notes work in progress
Eddie Offord began his career back in the 70's with classic music from "Emerson Lake Palmer" and "YES" ...ended up in the USA with his famed mobile studio set up in Levon Helm's barn which now is Officially Levon Helm Studios serving a constant flow of sessions and live concerts.
Eddie was finishing work in 1979 as co-producer and engineer, on David Sancious album "Just As I Thought ....when Rosetta and her entourage of musicians arrive on the scene ... combined with 70's "hanging out vibe....David extended his stay and played on a few songs, he even played an amazing guitar solo on
Rozetta's song "I'm Onto You."-
Offord began his partnership with Yes in 1970. He suggested that the band record Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973) in the countryside to try and ease tensions that had grown within the group, but the compromise was to record at Morgan Studios with trees, plants, and model cows. In the late 1970s, Offord relocated to the United States where he worked in Woodstock, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. In 1994, after working on Grassroots, Offord announced his retirement from the music business. In 2011, he changed his mind when his son introduced him to The Midnight Moan, and went on to produce their debut album.
Offord has since worked on tracks by Sophia Urista and Allie Hill.
Back to Rozetta.....after final mixes on David Sancious Album Eddie moved straight into Rozetta's Album bringing Philippe Saisse in as a co-producer/ Musical Director Blake Levinsohn who co-wrote most the songs could not write out charts for the bass player and drummer and since this was not a band charts were needed to move things along.
