Christmas Again



Frank On "Christmas Again"

Back in the early '80s I wrote a Christmas song and Paul Orofino (my friend and producer) and I recorded it, pressed it and released it. Apparently, it was a hit in the midwest four a couple of Christmases in a row but as we didn't have distribution, we had no idea that it was a success. We only found out about it when program directors tracked Paul down at the studio. Live and learn.

It's nearly 40 years since then and I decided that I wanted to re-record it (with the Bandoleros) with mostly acoustic instruments and change some of the lyrics. it was a lot of fun revisiting an old song. It was a little difficult getting the original recording and arrangement out of our heads but we gave it a good go and I'm happy with the results.
So, here is a little holiday reminder: Love still is the answer, no matter what holiday you celebrate.

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and a very Happy New Year!

Love from Frank, Paul and the rest of the Bandoleros

Track Listing

1  Love's got a Hold
2  Doesn't Really Matter
3  (Moving From) One Room to Another
4  Ballerina
5  Down to Your Heart

Sometime during the summer of 2005, I realized I had some free time opening up in my Studio’s “A” room.

Not being one to sit idle, I had this idea to call a few musician friends, to see if they might be available during that open week, and if so, have them all come to my place, hang and make some music.
My thought was they would eat, sleep, drink and write songs together for 24 hours a day, and we’d record them immediately after each song is written.
So I called 4 guys that I had previously worked with...
Danny Miranda, Eddie Seville, Frank Carillo, and Simon Kirke.
Funny thing is, some of them had never met, and even if they didn’t know it, I knew that they all would be a perfect fit, not only personally but musically. And boy, was I correct.

Frank Carillo and Simon Kirke of Bad Company

I'm really excited about the gig coming up next week at the Towne Crier as I'm sharing the bill with Simon Kirke.  We're playing an acoustic show with Eddie Seville opening. Two of my favorite people!!

Simon and I have known each other for over 35 years. We got to know each other when my band, Carillo, opened for Bad Company for the entire Desolation Angels tour in 1979. He is one of the GREATEST drummers in music and a wonderful songwriter with a great voice. Plays pretty damned good guitar, too.

Through the years we would see each other occasionally, here in the States or in England, and when he came to the States to live we got to spend more time together writing songs. Not only is he a great musician but he is just a standup guy. No big ego,  and believe me, he has the cred! I mean, founding member of both Free and Bad Company, and more rock 'n' roll credits than you can imagine. 

A few years ago, my producer, Paul Orofino had an idea to put together a bunch of us to record. His idea was to have us get in a room, write a song and record right then and there. Simon, myself, Eddie Seville and Danny Miranda. it was one of the best experiences because there wasn't an ego in the room and we came out with 7 tunes that I'm really proud of. Simon played some kick-ass piano on one of the tracks, as well as his brilliant drumming. Eddie and I sang the leads and we all did backing vocals. Simon brought the snare drum that he used on all the "Free and Bad Company Records." Legendary!! 

Hope you all will join us at the Towne Crier in Beacon, NY



Frank Carillo and the Bandoleros

Frank Carillo and George Kooymans (Golden Earring) are releasing a new disc. The new CD, titled "On Location," will be released on the Universal label in The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.  George and Frank have been writing together on and off since the mid-'90s and, in between Frank's work with the Bandoleros and George's work with Golden Earring, they decided it was time for the CD to see the light of day!  Live shows in Europe will start in April for a few weeks and resume again in May.

The first single, "Blind Love,"; is the only song on the CD not written by George and Frank. "Blind Love" was written by Bandoleros drummer, Eddie Seville.  A video for "Blind Love" was shot in Rotterdam at the beginning of February as well as a video for another track, "Maybe Roses Never Die."

Frank Carillo and The Bandoleros are planning to record a number of acoustic tracks in March.  The new songs will be recorded using Millbrook Sound Studios' mobile rig.  The recording will take place at Om House and will include some surprise guests.  The Bandoleros new studio CD, "Rails To Kingdom Come," is scheduled for early summer release.  Stay tuned for updates.
