    The Swirling Eddies in Concert
    (The Swirling Eddies in concert. Arthur Fhardy, Mary Baker Eddy, Gene Pool, Hort Elvison, Camarillo Eddy, Spot, Berger Roy Al and Prickly Disco)

  • The Eddies performed their first concert in La Marida, California at Biola University with Randy Stonehill. The show was dubbed the "Amos n' Randy n' Eddie tour". Over the next couple of years, they performed their next two shows at the Troubadour in Hollywood.
    Tim: "We came out in complete drag and, under the circumstances, just burned a hole in it. Mark Heard was there recording Randy Stonehill. At the end of our set, which ended in disaster - threats of lawsuits, people fired, jobs lost, lives changed - Mark asked if he could join the band. At one show, Marc Sercomb and Dan Michaels came out dressed in nothing but black silk stockings, sport coats, and high heels. I didn't know it but they went to a K-Mart and bought L'eggs just for the occasion. They would contort and writhe to the music. Dan Michaels would be whipping around a pair of nun-chucks."

  • In a single 10 hour recording session, DA records a new version of "The Pool", a cover of "Ghost Riders in the Sky", and the longtime DA concert classic "I'm On Your Team". This session was the first time that Taylor, McTaggart and Chandler played with Jerry Chamberlain since he left the band in 1983.

    Summer 1990

  • Jacob's Trouble's Knock, Breathe, Shine is released on Frontline Records. Terry Produced, Directed, Cowrote "Look At U Now", "Islands, Buildings and Freeways", "There Goes My Heart Again", & "I'm A Little World" with Jerry Davidson. Terry also Cowrote "Beggars and Kings" with Jerry Davidson & Randy Stonehill. Terry also sang background vocals.

    Jerry Davison, "Beggars and Kings": "This is a song Terry and Randy Stonehill had started some months before we came out to record. They hadn't finished it and Terry thought it might fit our record. So he had Randy come by and the three of us sat down and finished it. Rather, Terry and Randy finished it while I sat there in awe of the fact that I was sitting with Terry Taylor and Randy Stonehill. They put my name on the credits anyhow. Nice fellas. When I asked him why he wanted to give me credit as a songwriter he said, 'Because they came out of that head space that you helped create. You are a part of those songs whether or not you wrote any of the actual music or lyrics.' I always thought he was just being nice."

    Jerry Davison, "Islands Buildings and Freeways": "The credits say this was written by Terry Taylor and Jerry Davison but I can tell you this is Terry's song all the way. I was in the room when he wrote it and maybe tossed out a few suggestions here and there but the whole thing is pretty much his start to finish. And as such, it's not surprising this was one of the most popular and enduring songs from the record."

    Jerry Davison, "About Sex": "We had demoed the song, 'About Sex,' intending it for Knock, Breathe, Shine, but Terry declined to produce it. Unfortunately Frontline had their hearts set on including it so Terry and the band created this song literally from thin air, and called it 'About Sex (Part II).' I already mentioned the tension and conflict which swirled around our original demo for '"About Sex.' This song came about as Terry's effort to appease the powers that be at Frontline. They had their heart set on 'About Sex' being on the record and Terry had his mind made up that it would only be on the CD over his cold, dead body. So Terry came up with a plan to have a song called 'About Sex' on the record that was not our song 'About Sex.' He sent me into the drum booth and I sat down behind the kit. 'Start playing,' he said over the talk back in my headphones. 'What do you want me to play?' I asked. 'Anything,' he said. 'Just play and I'll tell you when to stop.' So I did. That's the drums you hear on this song. After that he sent Mark and Steve in respectively and told them what to play over my drum track. They pounded away and when they were done, they came out and sat down next to me looking just as confused as I probably looked at that moment. Terry then began to feverishly construct what became 'About Sex Part II' literally ex nihilo. He put in a call to Frontline's offices and had some guy there start looking up statistics on divorce, abortion, sexually transmitted diseases, etc. I think it's the same guy who researched all that stuff who drove over to the studio and read it into the microphone!

    By this time, we felt a little like our record had been hijacked. The recording continued without us. I think we wandered off into the next room and played golf on the Nintendo. Terry brought in Dan Michaels of the Choir to play some terrific saxophone stuff. Greg Flesch came in and was amazing on lead guitar, as usual. The preacher's voice is from an old cassette Terry had of Jimmy Swaggart losing his mind and screaming about sex in pretty graphic detail. All the vocals were Terry and guys from DA or the Eddies. Other than the initial drums, bass, and acoustic guitar that we played without even knowing what we were doing, we had absolutely nothing to do with the song. Please don’t get me wrong; I am not slamming Terry. He did an amazing job assembling this complex and riveting track literally from nothing right there on the spot. It’s a tribute to his genius, no question. It jus wasn't us. It didn't sound like us. It didn't feel like us. It didn't flow with the rest of the record. It was purely politics resulting from a producer being pressured by a record label."
