BAZ FRANCIS PLAYS MANSION HARLOTS

 
Albuquerque rocker Baz Francis has never been short of musical projects, from the band Magic 8 Ball to his solo recordings, but it was his teenage self who beckoned with the return of Mansion Harlots.  That band began as a collaboration with drummer/songwriter Will Grey in 90s Britain & lasted only a short time, leaving no proper recordings, but the musical ideas of Francis & Grey never quite disappeared.  The duo recently revisited the early work, revising it with two decades' worth of musical experience & releasing the long, long, long delayed debut album "All Around a Fairground" on Magic Cat Records.
 
In this feature Baz Francis plays songs from the album solo & acoustic.  Recorded in Studio C by Matthew Finch using the P-38 mic configuration on December 4, 2019.
 
Facebook is the first stop for Baz Francis plus his bands Mansion Harlots and Magic Eight Ball.
