He asked if I would like to add the vocals. Since I'm a long time fan of Deep Purple and this song, I said hell yeah! So here it is.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Note: The proper HFA license has been obtained to post this cover song up (HFA #<a>1149828306)</a>. </span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Farrell</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">http://www.mixposure.com/index.php?t=mixposure_song_player&amp;song_id=28531&amp;band_id=991</span></p>

South of the Border (1971)

<p><span style="font-size: small;">Farrell Jackson - songwriter, lead vocal, acoustic guitar, electric guitar solo and fills.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Dave Mercer - Backing vocals and bass.<br /></span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Stever Zakel - electric guitar solo and fills, backing vocal.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Kurt Huhn - drums.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">I wrote South of the Border in 1971 at the age of 19.&nbsp; It was my second attempt at songwriting.&nbsp;&nbsp; The lyric is about the unknown future facing a young man with a longing to do something exciting...such as head to Mexico.......I never did. I got married instead to my wife Gayle (38 years and counting) and had two children....... You might notice a musical influence here because I was listening to a lot of America's music at that time and still do. </span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">This version was recorded in 1998 with my first analog/digital recorder, a Fostex FD8 eight track. I had help from my long time musical family and band (The Jackson, Mercer, Zakel Band)&nbsp; which consisted of Farrell Jackson, Dave Mercer, Steve Zakel, and Kurt Huhn.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">I've re-mastered this so I thought it was time to re-post this blast from the past.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Enjoy!</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Farrell Jackson</span></p>

Magnet and Steel (recorded live - studio enhanced)

<p>Farrell Jackson - Lead vox, backing vox, rhythm and lead guitar.</p><p>Steve Zakel - Rhythm Guitar, backing vox.</p><p>Dave Mercer - Bass, backing vox.</p><p>Kurt Huhn - Drums</p><p>This is a song we (The JMZ Band) recorded live a few years ago. I was looking and listening to some old song files and stumbled upon it. I thought it sounded pretty decent so I decided to load up all the tracks, remix it, and make use of today's technology to enhance the sound further. Since I had it in the studio I decided to add some more backing vox to it also. It brings back some good memories for me. I hope you enjoy it also!</p><p>Farrell Jackson</p><p>I also have the HF License for this. HF#<a>1119753738</a></p>

It's Bad Luck

It's Bad Luck

<p>It's bad luck! This is the first real song I ever wrote. As you can tell by the lyric it was written in the rebelious, flowery,&nbsp;wild&nbsp;sixties. It's a short simple song that&nbsp;took&nbsp;35 years to resurrect&nbsp;and get&nbsp; recorded, thanks to the digital recording age. I thought about&nbsp;updating the lyric&nbsp;to be more politically correct but&nbsp;for some reason I just couldn't do it.&nbsp;To me it would be like changing the&nbsp;street names of Haight/Ashbury&nbsp;in S.F. Albiet my song isn't near as historical but it comes from the same era&nbsp;and the sixties mind set. He he he...I'm showing my age and roots!</p><p>I hope&nbsp;you enjoy it,&nbsp;dig the spirit in which it was written, and maybe it will&nbsp;bring back some memories or flashbacks for&nbsp;you flower children out there.</p><p>Farrell Jackson</p>
