KILLER ON THE RAMPAGE – Extended Play Version

About Glen Johansen

Glen co-owned and operated a recording studio called Integrated Sound Studios (ISS) in Toronto’s Scarborough district.

Also performing on this session was guitarist Domenic Troiano with feature solo in “Put Down The Guns“.

Other Recording Projects

We recorded lots of tings together. and Glen used me as one of his session players when he needed sax work on Demos. For samples, scroll down to the “Lost Demo Tapes” section of my AUDIO page.

Frank Motley Session

A rather notable session came about when dual-trumpeter Frank Motley decided to finally record two songs he had written. These were likely on his bucket list.

Frank “Two-Horn” Motley

I was commissioned to write horn parts for trumpet and two saxes. Moe Prieur was the other sax player.

The Motley Session players: Russ (center), Frank (seated with his yellow cassette player), drummer Jerry Summers (rear center), tenor sax Moe Prieur (standing, far right)

Included here are Frank’s two tracks

Frank Motley – “Two-Horn Motley”
Frank Motley – “Country Music’s Got A Beat”

Barbados

Glen moved down to Barbados to finish recording this album at Eddy Grant’s Blue Wave Studio. The Rolling Stones also used Grant’s studio for one of their albums.

Mick and Glen at Blue Wave Studios in Barbados

Glen’s still down there.
