Do That For You
Release Date: 1995
Label: In-Law RecordsLisa's first solo release. It was recorded on the Gershwin Room stage at the Esplanade Hotel in St Kilda, and recorded out the back of the pub by Cameron Payne. This session was put together with the help of Steve Hoy, who lined Garrett Costigan up to play pedal steel. Garrett continues to play with Lisa today, and is on all the albums except Quiet Girl - when his uncle Michael Bourke filled in. At the session everyone played really quietly (it was recorded pretty much live), but Garrett was completely inaudible. We remember thinking 'this guy is wasting our time, he's not even trying'. But when we listened to the playback his playing was a revelation. We're still pretty fond of this recording, it's a bit rough, with numerous mistakes preserved for posterity, but it's got a really good feel.
