Recorded in 2006 in mangobananas studio, Ithaca, NY.

These are re-recordings of songs Andy originally recorded in between 1986 and 1999. They were recorded in between 2005 and 2008 after Andy got Logic Pro 7 and a PowerBook G4 -partly as a learning exercise, and partly to try to improve on the original recordings. The originals can be heard at the playlist 'refresher originals'.

Jon plays drums on "go far", "the only things alive", "hold the moment", "everything", and "liquid". Andy plays all other instruments and sings.

Years of Activity:

There are cassette tapes by "The Andy Band" dating back to 1979, when Andy was 14 years old, and he is still an avid recording musician. Sometimes The Andy Band is all about "hit record and go" improvisation, other times it's all about one-man-band multi-tracking in the studio. Since 2010, Andy has been playing some of these songs live near his new home in Vermont at open mics. He relishes the thrill of improvising with an audience, as well as singing three-part harmonies and playing bass with players there. But he also loves building up a song with layers and layers of Andys, singing and playing everything.
