Info for Fiji Bitter (Remastered)
Recorded at EMI studio's Sydney, Fiji Bitter was Marc Hunter's first solo album. With arrangments by Rick Formosa, and a combination of Top live and studio muso's Marc was in good company to make this record. Marc and I were sharing a Unit in Rushcutters Bay, just behind Kings Cross at the time, Most of the sessions were recorded at night, so we'd have dinner at the New York and get to the studio by about 9 pm.
I went to all the sessions because I loved hanging out at the studio watching everybody do their thing and taking in the process. All my Drum tracks were laid down in the early stages of the album, But I'd occasionally get called in to help out Marc and Todd on "boot stomp and hand clap overdubs," some percussion, even backing vocal harmony on (Fiji Bitter). Although known as a Pop Rocker Marc had an affinity with the Blues, Cool Swing, Sleezy Cabaret, call it what you will, a darkness, a sadness mmmmm that Peggy Lee thing.
Marc once confided in me that he loved Cabaret, and that he was just an Old Cabaret singer at heart, and thats really what he wanted to do.. Marc Hunter was undoutably the best male singer Ive worked with, He was a good friend of mine, and I am proud to have played on his records and toured in his band. My favourite tracks on this album are The Thrill Is Gone, Casablanca, Fiji Bitter, and My Mystery.
