We hired Dick Weissman to produce these demos for us. We recorded them in two separate sessions, at Capitol Records, Studio A, New York City. In a way, this was our most successful recording, since Dick liked to very tightly arrange songs, the same as we did. These were the recordings that got us our ABC Records contract.

In 1968, Ken Frankel built a 4-track recording studio by moving the heads on cheap 2-track Sony reel-to-reel recorders, and using very cheap Radio Shack parts as mixers. In spite of this primitive equipment, and the 40-year-old Radio Shack tapes, these songs came out amazingly well. These were tests/demos for our second album, but we broke up before we could make it.

If you are an Ill Wind fanatic, and must hear more of our music, regardless of the quality, here is a link to a few more songs that Richard Zvonar posted when he created this site. Some of these are terrible home recordings, some are live recordings made after the Ill Wind reformed with a different lead guitarist, and some. are demo's recorded by Terry Hanley that have weird defects (which we will try to correct soon).
