Dan Baker was living in Chelsea MA, during the recording of his new record. A small city on the outskirts of Boston, Baker describes the city as "A place littered with factories, oil tanks, and pot holes... surrounded by great heaps of salt and scrap metal". Being influenced by his surroundings Baker wrote many songs about the town, one even making it onto the record, the title track "Pistol in my Pocket", Baker states, "That song came about from a conversation I had. I was talking to the clerk at the 7-Eleven down the street. He was telling me about all the times his store had been held up... at one point he said pistol in my pocket and I guess that just got stuck in my head". The city of Chelsea, luckily for Baker, is also where 1867 Recording Studio is located. A former Masonic Temple, the studio boasts 60 foot vaulted ceilings with walls still equipped with their masonic images and moldings. Baker knew he had found the right place so he called in his band and they got to work. The recording process was fairly straightforward; they all set up in the middle of the temple/live-room and cut everything live. The result is Dan Baker's third record, "Pistol in my Pocket". A record that finds Baker more matured and in command of his craft. With songs of betrayal and revenge as well as songs of love-lost and love-regained. A small record with a big punch: gritty, raw, but heartfelt and nostalgic, and much like Baker's first two records you'll be hanging onto every word. This is a great record, with everything you've come to expect and more from this great New England based singer/songwriter.
