The journey through my storied history returns! Let’s get back into it. 2007 was my first big year, and if you choose to keep reading, you’ll find out why, if you don’t already know. (If you’re new here, start at Part 1.)
Editor’s note: I’ve rewritten this paragraph a dozen times. I’ve concluded that I don’t remember 2005-2008 very well. I originally made a few statements here that I thought were facts, then included a link to the first entry of my Bringing Back Boobs, Butts, and Feets blog series from 2015. When I skimmed through that, I found contradictions to my current thought process and got all confused. I trust my 2015 memory about 2007 more than my current memory, so I’m just going to default to everything you can read there as being true. Follow that link if you want some in-depth information about recording that album and what it took to finally, officially releasing it in 2016.
If you read the last 2 entries of this blog series, you’d know I’ve been musically active for about 7 years by 2007. What I don’t think I disclosed before was that from 2001 to 2005, very little of the music I made was heard by anyone but me. I would burn CDs of random, poorly-produced songs of mine and have people listen to them, but I can count those people on 1 hand. Maybe half a hand. Whatever the case, I wasn’t satisfied enough with my stuff to think anyone else would enjoy listening to any of it. In 2007, that changed.
I’ll try to keep this musically focused rather than my personal life, but 2007 was a new year for me. I had distanced myself from someone from the Great White North and shortly after was essentially forced to work in another town. So yeah, a lot of stuff went down in that year, and not just the launch of Rock Band. Musically, I don’t think I recorded anything in 2007 for Boobs, Butts, and Feets. All I probably did was tweak mixes and move parts around for it. Kind of boring, but…that’s all it was, I think.
It would be nice to provide details, but I don’t even have any. I’m choosing not to reference my old blog series about BBAF, so I doubt I’m going to be able to add much concrete, trustable information. One angle I could add here is that in 2007, I was actively considering having a few of my new co-workers the album. To this day, of all my albums, of all titles of my albums, Boobs, Butts, and Feets has to be the riskiest bunch of songs to reveal.Continue reading “Robby Suavé Is 20 Years Old, Pt. 3”
