Joe and Bing (aka BEST OF FRIENDS) – Daybreak

December 5, 2006


Best Of Friends was the East Coast-based songwriting/guitar duo of Bing Bingham and Joe Knowlton.
For some reason ROBERTO QUARTIN (legendary bossa nova producer) decided to record/produce this album, with the help of EUMIR DEODATO, for Brazilian release on his label, Quartin.

Joe and Bing :
Eumir wrote several of the arrangements on the record, played some piano, and has been a good friend and supporter ever since.

The album even features DOM UM ROMAO on drums

The result = holy_grail

Here are the pics of the OG and the re-issues

and finally, the CD

The “Daybreak” CD released by Rev-Ola Records in October 2004. In addition to the 10 songs on the “White Album” (see above), this CD includes 7 unreleased tracks, which include the original demos of Summer Sound and If Love’s in Season without orchestration. Other original songs include Come and Bring the Sun Again, More Than I Can Live With, Those Sunday Soda Pop Dreams, Panther Pond Breakdown – a guitar/banjo instrumental, and a cover of the Harry Nilsson classic, Without Her.

The tracklist of my vinyl (the Italian reissue [the red cover]) rip :

01. Daybreak
02. I’m Not Forgetting Your Name
03. It’s OK
04. Summer Sound
05. Fennario
06. Love the One You’re With
07. If Love’s in Season
08. Just Plain Livin’ Blues
09. Sail
10. Drifting With the Time
