Unni's words

Memories from the time I worked nights in down town Oslo. A step back to pick up something and have a look at it before I close some doors.

Malcolm Burn is producing and mixing. To watch him do it, is impossible to forget. We recorded in his house, Clouet St. Studio in New Orleans, fall 1999. We had wine with Emmylou Harris and hang outs at legendary Kingsway Studios (Daniel Lanois). Bob Egan (Wilco, Madrugada) popped by for a little pedal steel while the tape was running. Carlo Nuccio plays drums on this album and on Tori Amos' Under The Pink! Head technician Jim Watts and I listened to Ani DiFranco. Great food! Great candle lights!

The recordings deserve listening under good conditions (volume up, ipod and a bus seat :)

Back in the Blonde is a detailed, atmospheric head set record from a dream come true in New Orleans. It can handle a car stereo at night.
