Jim + Jim

Before we were 'Sneaker,' in 1973, Mitch Crane and I were signed to a production project by producer Jackie Mills, owner of Larrabee Studios in West Hollywood, CA.

Jackie chose the name 'Carnival' for our project. We recorded a few of our tunes along with others given to us by Jackie and didn't know it at the time that he was using some of the 'Wrecking Crew' and other musicians for our sessions, including Don Randi (Keyboards), Victor Feldman (Percussion, Vibes), Jim Gordon (Drums), Jim Keltner (Drums), Tony Peluso (Guitar) and others (I wish I could remember who).
