THINKING ONLY OF YOU (LUST DON’T LAST)

The Green Pajamas spent the long lazy summer of 1984 basking in the Summer Of Lust. We had jam sessions in the attic room of my parents’ house in West Seattle where, at 20, I still lived. Jeff, four years older than me, was also still living in his boyhood room at his parents’ house two blocks away. I believe that this lack of responsibility, this extended childhood existence in which we lived, heightened our creativity. It certainly afforded us the time to devote to so much music.

Mastering notes:

Mastered by Tom Dyer from cassettes.
