page holds recordings made with a Band called Tailspin I was lead
guitarist for. We had 40-50 songs and played small local gigs at bars
or pizza places. Other recordings are on this site that are
either my originals or were not officially in the Tailspin phase of
this band. We had Thresa Jigour on vocals/guitar, Armando Iturallde on
Bass, Dave Jigour on drums and myself on lead guitar. Most of these
unless noted are from a simple cassette deck so the recordings are not
mixed as in a studio.
Think I'm In Love
Eddie Money Song that the band enjoyed playing and was a good fit. This
is a recording from a practice at a house we had in Saratoga CA.
An R & B song made popular in 70s as Linda Ronstadt covered it nicely. This was recorded live at a gig in 1985.
by Journey which was popular at the time and we did it without
keyboards. This is a live recording from a show in 1985.
Middle Of The Road
Pretenders wrote this and did it well so we gave it try for our
gigs. We all enjoyed it. This is an abridged version for a demo
tape made in a studio but you get the idea.
Back On The Chain Gang
is also a Pretender's song and the band played this at gigs. The
band was also at my wedding and the guys in the band knew us so asked
us to play a few tunes so we did it at my wedding as well.
This take is from a practice.
Dirty City Blues
is an original tune written by Teresa Jigour, the vocalist/guitarist
front-person of Tailspin. I place it here as we played it at every gig
as one of our standards and this studio recording shows it off well.
