NEWS about YEAH YEAH YEAH STUDIOS - quote from the Facebook page:
"A disaster happened yesterday night / early morning. There was a serious explosion in the building where the Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Studios are located. Our part of the building is still standing. However, we don't know if any equipment can be saved, nor if we will ever be allowed to enter the premises due to the danger of collapse. That will only be clear after a structural engineer has examined the building."
All proceeds from the sale of this 7inch which was recorded there in a legendary session in February 2020 will go to YEAH YEAH YEAH
After Shawn Lee's extraordinary country-soul album "Rides Again" in the winter of 2019, he played three exclusive live shows in London, Amsterdam and Hamburg in early 2020 to play the complete album live. In Hamburg the band, consisting of Carwyn Ellis (Keyboards), David Page (Bass), Joe Harvey-Whyte (Pedal Steel) and Adrian Meehan (Drums) spent an off day at Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Studio and recorded this single direct to tape, mixed by studio owner Dennis Rux.
“’Wichita Lineman’ is one the best songs ever written,” Shawn Lee says. “Jimmy Webb’s masterpiece has always held a special place in my heart as I born and raised in Wichita Kansas. I have performed ‘Lineman’ many time live and recorded several versions of the song in the past. There is something quick tricky about her and she always gives you a run for the money! While on tour in early 2020 performing my ‘Rides Again’ album in Europe, we checked into the incredible Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! studio In Hamburg and setup house. We recorded two songs completely live with band straight onto analog tape. I was fortunate to have some of my best buddies joining me on the session: Carwyn Ellis, Dave Page, Adrian Meehan and Joe Harvey Whyte. We made quite a noise and this here record is the result!”

And another album by Greg Foat that is somewhere between dreamy and funky. It always hits the right spots and (also again) Malcolm Catto makes the tight grooves on drums. The track "Door into summer" can also be found on "The Dancers at the Edge of Time" as a different version. Superb Jazz StrangeFlow
