"Ten singles and two albums.•À_•À_At a certain point during my stay in the apartment on 13th Street I either said it to myself or said it out loud •À_•À_•À_ I can•À_ó»t recall •À_•À_•À_ but that seemed a realistic target all things considered. Few distractions, few visitors, few appointments. A busy city to break up the endless music looping in my head long after the headphones had been taken off. A micro-studio easily patched together and able to be configured in only one or two variations. Time to pay some dues. Both to the 45 single and the concept album. The small vinyl artefact that fed my musical appetite at key times in my life. No •À_•À_•À_b•À_ó? sides if it could be helped. Chasing a theme for as long as it took. Waiting for the real pattern to emerge. The perfect visual ratios of 7•À_ó? and 12•À_ó? cover art. Talking with the dead. Replying to the faded parsimony of a young fan and would-be maker of records (me): •À_•À_•À_Get it down now because this may be as good as it gets,•À_ó? •À_•À_•À_Don•À_ó»t wait for a real label to pay for your studio time,•À_ó? •À_•À_•À_Time spent recording should always at least match time spent playing live•À_ó?. I figured that the universal average for bands and recording artists was one, maybe two, good singles and an OK album then oblivion or, worse, a slow decline through contractual obligations. The only contract I had was with a scattering of friends, mostly American, who were there to deal with the out-pourings, should they arrive. And things had bottled up. Time to un-bottle. Not all at once. A few minutes at a time only for the intense stuff. Handing over bracketed ideas to this or that label as an act of faith. Then watching in awe as others transformed signals into objects. And here, running full circle in the literal sense, 7 goes into 12 many times, with folk new and old keeping the faith. Lucky me." -Roy Montgomery•À_•À_
