Over the course of the past year the second album of Allgaeu´s Bluegrass group ARGEN RIVER BAND was produced in the BACKYARD STUDIOS and is now available.
Unlike the first album which the band had recorded here some years ago and in order to achieve a more organic and authentic sound , this time we went for a basically "live in the studio" recording with all musicians recording together in the same room and at the same time.
Only the vocals and some solistic parts were added afterwards as an overdub.
Sebastian "Basi" Roeder engineered, mixed and mastered the album.
