Don't Feel Nothin'

The Paul deLay Band


We recorded Paulzilla--my second CD with the Paul deLay Band-- under the shadow of Paul deLay's impending incarceration.  Paul was driven to get a batch of songs recorded that he had in his head.  The CD ended up being declared 1993's "Album of the Year" by both the Portland Music Association and the Cascade Blues AssociationDon't Feel Nothin' is a harmonica romp that was already composed when Paul brought it to the band.  I just suggested the modulation that kicks the tune into another gear for the solo sections.  Paul loved the idea and insisted on giving me full co-writer's credit.  Drummer Jeff Minnick contributed his patented fast two-beat groove on the song--along with a Gene Krupa-like drum-harp breakdown.  And we all got to sing what we termed "sailor vocals."
