The indefatigable James Hall, already with two power pop classics to his name in the space of three years as Shake Some Action!, is busy at work on his third album and he's opening up the sausage-making to us all on his new blog.
The plan is for Hall (along with bassist and power pop renaissance man Gary Miller) to set out in detail the recording of their new disc, song-by-song, as they work in the (virtual) studio. They have one finished product to their credit now, and it's an auspicious beginning: "Touch the Sky", a tune as good as anything on the first two albums.

You can go in for the full details or just listen to the finished product, but either way it's a fascinating fly-on-the-wall look into the recording process.
