"Autumn Lee" SINGLE (BLE9222)
RELEASE DATE: December 23, 2003 (Vinyl) / April 18, 2009 (Digital)
was a hot, sweaty day during the summer of 2003 when Andy Bodean and the
Bottom Boys entered a make-shift recording studio to record the two of
four songs that would come to be the "Autumn Lee" single. The
session was initiated in order to have an EP to support the band during
its 2003 Fall Tour, yet, due to post-production difficulties, the EP never
saw the light of day until after the tour was complete, and only then
in the form of a single.
Two other songs were recorded during this session: "With Body and
Soul" and "An
Ante-Bellum Sermon" (the latter will probably never see a release
in its then recorded form; the sound clip is taken from a very early private
rehearsal). Nonetheless, "Autumn Lee" the single was released
on vinyl on December 23, 2003, well after the tour had commenced. Andy
Bodean and the Bottom Boys would return to the studio after the release
of "Autumn Lee" to record two follow-up songs from the then
current tour: "You're Telling Lies" and "I've Been Working
So Hard"; although neither were released, they will indeed be heard
on the upcoming "Anthology" album.
In an attempt to bring ABB2 back into the "big" picture and
promote its upcoming "Anthology" release, "Autumn Lee"
(the single) was made available for purchase digitally on Amazon and iTunes
(among others) on April 18, 2009. As such, the option to purchase the
digital version or the "as-intended" vinyl version (i.e., with
physical artwork and vinyl-goodness) is made available below.
"Anthology" is currently in production and should see release
within a year (or two). As the boys would say, "rock and roll, for
Produced by Zack Wilson
and Pete Cummings. All songs composed by Josh Guntel and Andy Trundle.
