Rattlesnakes was my first serious band, with serious players who knew how to play their instruments. We were young, like minded, and fully aware of our situation. According to all the signs, as far as I was concerned, my dream was right on schedule.
After a few rehearsals and gigs we began looking for a place to record our “originals,” as we used to call them. Luck was on our side. With financial support from David Bradley’s Uncle Charlie, we packed up our songs and headed to Nashville’s Eleven-Eleven Sound. We also recorded at Van Atkins’ Weaverville, NC studio.
