1 - WEST END - A MERRY WEST END CHRISTMAS - (CD) 
SPARE TIME


"The musicians I called upon to play the various featured instruments on the Christmas album are all professional recording musicians who have performed on countless Christmas albums for major recording artists. I have found that, for the most part, those albums often have such lavish and intricate arrangements that, while making the artist sound terrific, often overshadow the song itself, or lose its spirit and emotion (and this is understandable when the artist is the feature of an album)."We determined, however, that by not having a vocalist, we could more closely reflect the nature of each song itself, albeit without any lyrics. "Once I determined the general approach for each song, and had created a basic musical track, I called on some of my closest musician friends to participate and bring the tracks to life with their talents - sometimes a simple ukelele rhythm, sometimes a lovely melody, etc. These additional recording sessions were like social events, as we all clearly enjoy being in the recording studio together. "I think the results demonstrate our musical respect, and our affection for each Christmas song, and also for each other." And that pretty much encompasses how we like to work at Spare Time Records, from inception to recording, through mixing and mastering. Oh yeah - the elves have left the building. Merry Christmas!

2 - WEST END - WEST END - (LP) 
SPARE TIME


From Nashville to London to the West of Ireland - West End. In the 1980s, +West End+ began as a vehicle for recording songs written by Kirk Beasley and Ray Perkins for a very ambitious recording project that never saw the light of day. In 2018, original band members Kirk Beasley and Bobby Ogdin, and original engineer Travis Turk, joined forces with Bruce Dees, Tom Shinny, and others to play rock and roll and have a little fun. The album includes two bonus tracks ("Play It by Ear" and "Thin Soup") from the original sessions over 30 years ago. And need we say, "Mixed Loud to Be Played Loud?" Thats West End.

TRACKLISTING: 01. West End 02. At The End Of The World 03. Western Avenue 04. Play It By Ear 05. Art Of Living 06. Welcome To . Lil L.a. 07. Thin Soup 08. Dodge City 09. Business As Usual 10. Surreality
