 Greatest Hits



The Jim Myers Quartet 

Phil had been granted after-hours studio access to hone his skills as a recording engineer. Those late-night sessions produced these early Edwards Brothers recordings.


  • The Boys On Vinyl


    This limited run of 45s were pressed to help to promote the band—or, was it to satisfy their vanity?

  • Tape Box Label


    This was the master tape used in pressing the band's promotional records. The tunes were co-written by Jeff Luchese, their guitar player's older brother.

  • Acetate Dub


    This 1969 demo was cut on a Scully lathe at Columbus Recording. It was customary, back then, to submit disks for record company consideration.

  • Studio Musicians


    Not really! These 1966 wannabes were Photoshopped into a stock photo of a typical recording studio of the day. No actual photos of the band in the studio exist.

  • Rejected Again?


    It wouldn't be the record business without a few rejections—and The Edwards Brothers got more than their fair share.






The "Skeets" Sessions


Saxophone virtuoso Skeets Herfurt did it all—from jazzing up Tommy Dorsey's big band to being a regular on the Lawrence Welk Show. When performing in Lake Tahoe, the Brothers recorded songs in the basement studio of his lake view home, including Skeet's composition of "Jesus Says."



Very First Studio Recording


When the brothers stepped foot inside a professional studio for the first time, they were hooked! Phil was just learning the craft of recording engineering, a trade that would later become his profession. This 1969 recording was made at San Francisco's Columbus Recording.


"Instrumental" (1969)




The Wizards Upstairs


A film production company occupied the suite above Coast Recorders on Folsom Street where we did much of our recording. We would see the filmmakers come and go, but didn't associate with them much. We weren't well versed in independent film, and San Francisco was turning out a lot of avant-garde movies back then. It turned out that the company was Zoetrope Studios, headed by directors Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas. I always regretted not having been more neighborly.
