About John: Discography: Summertime in California, 2008
Summertime In California; John McGaraghan & Lee Simpson, 2008
In early July of 2006, I got together with former King Harvest bandmate Lee Simpson for a week in Chico. The summer heat, the cool river water, and the energy of the road mixed together with some good old fashioned pickin'. Within a few days, we wrote several songs together, and re-arranged some classic old numbers out of both of our catalogs. With a bunch of mics up in the room, and a rack full of guitars, "Summertime In California" is a stripped down, honest, and unadulturated chronicle of 3 days in the studio. To us, it just sounds like summertime in California. And that's a good sound...
