Signed in as:
"80's Unheard Pop Monsters Vol. 1" are 15 songs I wrote and recorded badly then, but have either completely re-recorded or used a technique I call "A Cross-Millennium Production" where I mixed tracks from the original recordings that were good enough to save with brand new tracks. It's a little weird jamming with yourself 42 years later ... out now on youtube, iTunes, etc.
And yes, that's me from 1987 ...
"Nightmares" is the same technique, featuring the great Don New on Baritone sax !
"Haunted House Blues" is also the same, this time featuring the great, recently extinct Barry Hirsh on lead vocals and the killer keyboard solo. The deceased Mr. Hirsh's keyboard wizardry also graces 4 tracks on the Pop Monsters cd and 4 songs on my next cd: "80's Unheard Power Monsters Vol. 1 ...
Think I'm joking? Some of these tunes will blow your head off. Starting with "The Show" - designed to be a concert opener, with outrageously fast and complicated Guitar and Keyboard solos by myself and the deceased Barry Hirsh, followed by the gorgeous, Heavenly "POWER" and so on - these are some of my best rock tunes, restored in my studio from the master tapes! Dig "Fast Food Girl!"
"Take A Break (From Love)" is again another tune from the middle 80's that I painstakingly restored. If you like country music and cool guitar lines, you'll love this! The guitar in the artwork is responsible for that Strat-like tone - my 1962 Gibson SG, customized like crazy.
This song was released last year, but it shows my country guitar leanings . Mastered by the great Robyn Robbins, known to you as the guy who played the opening piano riff on "Old Time Rock'N'Roll" by Bob Seeger...a former band mate of mine.
"The Paul Santa Maria Guitar and Bass Sextet" cd has 20 beautiful tunes created entirely with guitars, bass and some percussives; with cover art and photography all by Paul Santa Maria.
Downloads are now available on all the usual platforms (iTunes, Amazon, etc.)
These are my stats for Apple; for about a 2 year period I guess. They don't hear me in Russia, though - or Greenland. But they love me in Tokyo! Not exactly Beatles or Bruce or Billy, but I have 473 songs on the net - not too bad for a one-man-show!
Go HERE to HEAR the 26 song collection I produced and performed by myself on all guitars and basses (with a little help from some drummer friends) then to iTunes or your favorite platform to purchase the music. Or just repeat listen to the YouTube playlist and I get paid anyway. Over 400 of my works are on iTunes, Amazon, or my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUmDorLxn4p4_6m1uav1wsA

Since this is MY website, and I PAY for it and I MAINTAIN it, then allow me to focus on this mook Paul Jones. This is the kind of STUPIDITY that makes people turn away from something new - in this case, 2 of the greatest songwriters ever. The Beatles went on to generate TRILLIONS of dollars (the only thing most people care about anyway) in many businesses besides the "music" business - to be fair, how could he have know they would - that's NOT the point (although the screeching girls and an entertainment mogul's display of them MIGHT have been a SUBTLE CLUE...!!)
No the point would be that he DISMISSED THEM OUT OF HAND - and HE INSULTED THE 3 STOOGES AS WELL. I suggest that this guy never had any clue what was good or bad (except whatever he picked up from actual knowledgeable people he chatted with) and by giving his bullshit opinion he diverted people from the FUN of what the Beatles were. For all Beatle fans everywhere, Mr. Stupid Jones ...
F you and everyone like you. ~ Paul Santa Maria, 7.18.2022
