“Through Eyes and Glass’ was our first original recorded song. It came out on the Topaz label in 1968, and only sold a handful of copies, but it was the start of our career. We recorded this in a tiny studio in downtown Seattle under the Monorail. It may as well have been Abbey Road, because we’d never been in any recording studio before. The session came about because we were helping my friend Chris Blaine with a country band. That band only had a few songs, and there was a little time left in the day they’d booked, so we cut three covers, and snuck in this original song of our own”. -AW
“When the record came out, they left my name off the songwriting credit. They also misspelled the name of the band. But it was our welcome to the music business”! -NW
