This was Mick Fleetwood’s favourite song, of mine!
While we were producing Dan Hill’s, Seduces Me, for Celine Dion, at the end of 1995, we recorded my song, Wrapped Around Your Finger, for Dan’s solo album; I’m Doing Fine.
We recorded the basics for the song, at my Treehouse studio, in the Dell, Hollywood. I played the keys, acoustic guitar, and bass, then we overdubbed Steve Ferrone’s drums at Record Plant with Steve Churchyard, and Michael Thompson’s guitars, at his Cocoa Butt Studio, in the Baldwin Hills.
Wrapped was top 10 on radio, before it, and the album, were pulled from distribution, after 8 weeks! Oh well…
The Rose Vortex is:
Warren Cuccurullo – guitars, vocals, piano, percussion
Azar Lawrence – tenor & soprano sax
Tommy Mars – electric piano, organ, synth
Alex Alessandroni – piano, synth
Doug Lunn – bass
Joe Travers – drums
Munyungo Jackson – percussion
Michael Hunter – trumpet
Rachel Sierra – vocals
Mayuto Correa – percussion
and Savanah Blessing Mandel, Brigitte & Racine – vocals (‘Don’t Blame It On Me’)
Along with friends “magic bus” Alex, on keys and loops, and fellow sailor Robert, on snare and cymbal, the three of them serenaded the entire marina, throughout one of the biggest fireworks displays on the west coast of the United States, and well on into the night, all performed on the upper deck of the Sarzo yacht.

This is a great combination of clips from the various studios we had use of in the 00’s. Many shots of Drumroll and Orange studios.
We wrote the music using traditional lyrics. May the Long Time Sun Shine Upon You!

I was lucky enough to be producing this dude back in the 00’s. James Albin is a cat!
And Steve Ferrone on drums, and Sean Halley on lead guitar!
I’ll look for the recording details on this one…in the meantime, enjoy the video! (is that Peter Zimble on guitar?)

One of my dearest friends and family, my colleague in music, and a beautiful human being, Emily Richards, was married last weekend in Southern California to the very wonderful John Nogawski! We send them both all of our love and our best wishes for their long and prosperous future together!
