'Amigo' was recorded in North Hollywood in July of 1976. Amigo was the name of the recording studio and the record was named to honor the great musicians and talented crew who worked on the project. Arlo and family along with producer John Pilla moved into a house nearby and spent about 2 months recording and mixing the tracks. It was a very happy time, as Annie, Arlo & Jackie's third child was born during the recording. Arlo, John and co-producer, Lenny Waronker had worked together on all the recordings starting with 'Running Down The Road' each record improving and evolving - With 'Amigo' they really hit their stride. Great musicians, great engineering, great songs, all converging at a good and happy time make this recording what it is.
