about

FYI: If you pay seven dollars for an album on Bandcamp $1.05 goes to the Bandcamp site, $.70 goes to PayPal and $5.25 goes to the artist.

This is a collection of songs I wrote and recorded in the seventies and eighties. Two cover versions are included from the same period, 4 and 20 by Stephen Stills and Grow Old With Me by John Lennon. The Radical Mayor of Moscow song title was conceived in 1978 but the song didn't get written until the 90's. It's included in this collection for the sake of variety.

Track Name: In The Winter
I traveled through the ice
I'm sleeping in the snow
Every day the nights are long and cold
The wind is always blowing into my eyes
As I walk on
I think of stories I've been told
And I'm changing
In the winter
I am straying from the old old path
It's amazing to believe

I fell from miles away
And landed at your side
I said hello
You didn't seem to mind
Now I can count the moonbeams
Just like shady days
We spend them all
And never wonder why

And I'm changing
In the winter
I am straying
From the old old path

We are changing
In the winter
We are straying
From the old old path
It's amazing to believe
Track Name: And Summertime Filled the Air
I was thinking of a song that
I had song when I was small
And the words kept coming back to me
But were they words at all
I felt the same impressions of a dream
I know you know exactly what I mean

The world was so much larger
And the rooftops were so high
And all I had to do was climb a tree
To touch the sky
I know you know exactly what I mean
I felt the same impressions of a dream

I saw the friends that I used to know
And we were walking down a rocky road
And summertime filled the air
...and you were there

Fishing in a puddle
With a string tied to a nail
Building wooden boats
We used a hanky for sail
I know you know exactly what I mean
I felt the same impressions of a dream

Imagination never knew any bounds
When we filled in all the sights and sounds
And summertime filled the air
...and you were there

Playing army in the fields,
Football in the yard
Climbing trees and catching bees
Inside a mason jar
I felt the same impressions of a dream
I know you know exactly what I mean

I mean the stories that we all believed
Are still inside us when we go to sleep
And summertime filled the air
...and you were there
