State of Mind – John Jones

June 11th, 2017 Comments Off on State of Mind – John Jones

The State of Mind video was filmed in Toronto in June, 1997, and produced by my brother, the late Philip Mellows, and the Players Film Company.
Neil Grieve did the final editing in Culver City.

I was filmed on the roof of the old Edge Hotel, and at various sites in downtown Toronto. Neil added a couple of snaps of Beverly Hills.

I wrote State of Mind in August 1992, during the lull between the destruction of Iraq. How can anybody live life in a war zone?

The demo was recorded in England in 1992, and in 1996 we overdubbed Richard, and Steve (recorded by Stuart), Michael (at his studio), and then Stuart mixed it at Music Grinder in Hollywood.
