RECORDING WITH THE SWAMPERS
After watching the documentary, Muscle Shoals
, Greg called up FAME Studios and asked if they knew of someone who played like David Hood and Spooner Oldham. Much to his surprise, the Studio Engineer, John Gifford III, replied that he could call the legends themselves and see if they were available.
The following month, February, 2014, Greg traveled to Alabama and recorded an album with a few of the legendary Swampers, David Hood and Spooner Oldham. Leading the session, was guitarist, Larry Byrom and on drums & percussion, Justin Holder. Pics inside the studio
