The Bells of San Miguel is by far Scott Damgaard's most cutting-edge album to date. This is an eclectic collection of 13 songs of varying styles and even languages. Scott wrote ten of the songs here and while he plays many of the instruments on this album, he also gets assistance from some of the best musicians in New England. Ken Hickey (of O-Positive) plays drums on most songs, Dave Lieb (of The Rudds and Stained Glass Eye) plays bass and keys on some songs, Bilgehan Tuncer aka The Turkish Tornado (of Tarkan and Seatbelts For Rain) plays lead guitar on several tracks, and Scott even gets help on a couple tracks from Joe Kessler (Sunday's Well) on violin and Michael F. Rakusin on saxophone. To top things off, the entire album was digitally mixed and mastered by Bill Ryan (Recording Engineer for Boston, J Geils Band, Til Tuesday, and On The Drop.)
