Paranoid (Black Sabbath Cover)

Title: Paranoid (New Mix)
Artists: Richard Somers
Album: Cover Songs
This is another of the songs I recorded in the St. Joan of Arc Highschool studio in 2007. I did the vocals, guitar and bass, Derek Hope did the guitar solo and Devin Sigouin played the drums. Devin and I recorded the guitar and drums live off the floor. This in fact is the first take after one 20 second practice to show him the speed I like to do this song at (hence the bad ending). I then recorded the bass and after Derek put his solo on I added the vocals. This song was not exported into an audio program to mix. It was mixed straight off the board with no effects or eq because we were in a rush for grades. I think for how quick we made this it turned out well. I hope you enjoy it.
The photo I uploaded with it is from one of the school plays I was in called Sketch City High. I was not only a co-writer in this play but also a lead character (I wrote and auditioned for my own part). The characters name was Vince who was the lead pothead (as in Vince Neil of Motley Crue) and I had my own solo song (smokin in the boys room).

 This is amazing for something recorded as a one-take strait from the board. It would have been nice to have had some stereo mics on the drum kit.
 They called me King Louis in high school because of my hair.

Finished with my woman
'Cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane
Because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things
But nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I
Don't find something to pacify
Can you help me
Occupy my brain?
Oh yeah
I need someone to show me
The things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make
True happiness, I must be blind
Make a joke and I will sigh
And you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel
And love to me is so unreal
And so as you hear these words
Telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life
I wish I could but it's too late
I wish I could but it's too late

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA

Hi my friend, At the time this Album was released I was working with the BS management and indi record company in London, so their music has many cool memorys for me.  Some timing / balance / vocal issues ( sorry ) did`nt like the vocal work. But that said and considering the restraints of the session, as  explained above, I think it came out quite well. Good time was had by all I`d bet. Peace Ian
