Steve Baxter – Extra Sugar On The Bone

Extra Sugar On The Bone is a real representation of the music making process and dedicated to true music lovers. Even though the recordings were completed within a year, the works were conceptualized over a period of 5 years. Many of the songs were written of the road, in hotels, and on long flights.

The original CD, Sugar On The Bone, was edited and produced with a specific “marketability” in mind, but there was more of the story left to tell. As a result, Extra takes those songs that didn’t quite make the first cut, along with raw mixes, outtakes, first takes, unedited versions, and more, to good notes, from feedback to talking in the tracks. Some of the music might move you, relax you, or distract you, but it all will get your attention.

” Extra” Sugar On The Bone was recorded during the original sessions for Sugar On The Bone, and all those great musicians were utilized for both albums. Because of their immense talent, they were let loose, often giving the song a different meaning or a fresh perspective. These “jam sessions” were caught by the engineer as he kept the tape rolling, and gives this extra raw feeling. Catch the raw feeling at CDBaby.
