Kelly Jay (from Crowbar)


Kelly Jay called me one day from an airplane (that was pretty special in the mid seventies). He said he’d be landing in Vancouver in an hour and he wanted to drop in and record a tune, obviously to teach someone named Blue (or Blu?) the song.

This was an all night studio jam. We managed to lay down 4 tunes before we ran out of stimulants. I don’t recall all personnel, but my recollections include Kelly Jay, Eugene Smith, Murray McLaughlan, and somebody’s guitar player and bass player. The rest of it is on the Eugene Smith page.
