These seven songs were completed, that is, written, recorded, and mixed in 7 days. 3 of them can be found on other EPs of ours. It has taken a little over 10 years for these illuminating tracks to find release.
Joey and Paul were about to attend a music school Martha's Vineyard and go on to form Berry in the Summer of 2002.
Joey spent the summer working at Durley Camp. Paul spent the summer working for Conference Services at Greenville College.
Joey had an idea to record some stuff, so that he wasn't heading into the semester on Martha's Vineyard empty-handed. The concept was simple: write, record, and mix down a song a day. The album was completed mostly by Joey, with an assist going to Paul Goodenough (and Chris Kavanaugh gets another assist).
The result is an album filled with urgency that really hangs together. For anybody who enjoys Berry, the Pre-V Sessions (in spite of a somewhat disgraceful spoken word lyric) give an illuminating look at the development of one of the most critically-appreciated and commercially-ignored Greenville bands of the post-For All The Drifters-era.
