June 30, 2000, 9:30 am PT
Carla Olson and former Rolling Stone Mick Taylor have recorded eight songs together in
Los Angeles that will appear on her next album, Ring of Truth, due Sept. 26 on Bakery
The album includes an 11-minute version of the Stones' song "Winter." Also
playing at the session was Electric Flag & Bob Dylan '60s session alumnus Barry
Olson (former leader of the critically acclaimed L.A. band the Textones and an early
'90s singing partner of late ex-Byrd Gene Clark) and Taylor have worked together a lot in
the past. They recorded a live album in 1991 titled Too Hot for Snakes, and Taylor also
worked on Olson's other solo albums, Within an Ace and Reap the Whirlwind.
Meanwhile, she's currently producing an album by pop/jazz guitarist Phil Upchurch. The
release, tentatively titled Tell to the Truth, is due later this year on Fantasy Records.
