Jeff Porcaro gave Curt the call to assemble a band for this album from American blues-rocker Scaggs. It was to be the breakthrough record for Porcaro as a producer but, tragically, he passed away in August of that year.
Curt Bisquera says:
“This project is closest to my heart. This being one of Jeff’s few producing efforts, I was honoured that he asked me. We were only halfway through the project when Jeff passed away. It was just so devastating for all of us.”
“When I’m asked what it was like working with Jeff, it was – with his great musical ear and his production choices from a drummer’s perspective – a dream. Really. He had the ability to specifically direct what he wanted, while allowing me the freedom to do what I wanted.”
“Think about that – that’s a fine line to be able to do that. That takes a gift. I felt most free when I had Jeff producing.”
