Americana Highways brings you this video premiere of Michael McAdam’s song “Little Queenie,” from his forthcoming album Tremolo (Permanent Records). Tremolo was produced by Michael McAdam and Jack Irwin (David Olney). It was recorded and mixed by Jack Irwin for Silvertone Recording Service in Nashville, with additional recording by Tim Carter at The Treehouse in Ridgetop, Tennessee. It was mastered at Tonal Park, in Takoma Park, Maryland, by Randy LeRoy.
“Little Queenie” is Michael McAdam on guitars and lead vocals; Garry Tallent on bass; and Eugene Paul on drums.
The video was created by Janet Gaino on Bless Your Heart Productions. Cut through the static on the radio station, to the heart of the song, “From my second story window, looking down on city park, she crossed the street… as the band played “Little Queenie….” and he was just too young to understand, and let her get away. That’s the start of this song of tangled up regrets, the passage of time, and the women who slipped away. The video captures the regrets with perfect imagery.
“My Little Queenie” is one I wrote about mistakes we all make in our teens and twenties and the lessons that don’t sink in until years, or even decades later. We did a pretty good video of this that was directed by Janet Gaino and shot in my old neighborhood in Richmond, VA. — Michael McAdam
