It is recorded around the time Jeff recorded 'Kingdom of desire' and has that similar snare sound. really nice stuff-reccomended. 'Wonderland' has a very 'Mushanga' feel to it....
YES, it does. There's a story in Modern Drummer where Jeff talked about tracking that record. Dr. John was on it as well as Paich. JP said he and the guys in 10cc made a loop but had to pull all these electronics off the tape machine to make it work.
(i.e. "Let's make a loop"...."Like the old days").
I THINK "Wonderland" has that loop on it.
he also mentioned playing a 20x20 rope drum.........I hear that sometimes when I'm not even listening for it. That's a great album, and I think may have been one of the last Jeff recorded before he left us.
