East Farwell




Don't You Wish

©

®

 This is the opening number from East Farewell.  Larry and Phil do a very nice Simon & Garfunkel type harmony on this song.  This is one of the most popular tunes from the album and a favorite at the coffee houses.

The Boarding House

©

®

 This  fun little number that was written as a medley with "Sweet Natalie"  If you buy either one of these you will get the other, too.  They were meant to be played together.  You can download the pair or each individually.

Sweet Natalie

®

 This tune describes Natalie, one of the main characters in East Farewell. A kind of burlesque sound to fit the character. This was written as a medley with “The Boarding House.”

Medley 1

This is the combined download. Both The Boarding House and Sweet Natalie together in the same MP3.  That is how I wrote them.

I Can Make You Smile

This is a real hot number. Donna does a great take on a saloon babe belting one out. I tried to create the image with the background ambiance and the background singers. I was trying to get an old time feel with the honky-tonk piano and band.

Angry Young Man

 This song is sung sung by Natalie to her ne’er-do-well boyfriend. Coreen does a great job on this one. She has a sort of Annie Lennox sound going on. Chuck plays a smoking guitar to set the mood.

Traveling Salesman Blues

 I tried to get a Rat Pack era sound on this one.  Aiming for a Sinatra swing with tongue in cheek lyrics.  Danny nails it on this tune.

Time to Remember, Times to Forget

©

®

This is a monologue from a bartender directed to a patron who has just come back after about a year or so. The barkeep speaks in typical cliches and asks a philosophical question in true bartender's style at the end.  I tried to draw a scene here using the only the bartender's monologue as the canvas.  I purposely had him talk in cliches but drop a little bit of wry wisdom in at the end.

Entre Acte

This is the introduction to the second part of East Farewell.  The more urban part.  I was trying to create a traffic flow sound, hustle and then a pause as the light holds everyone up.  Then they go again.

Welcome to the Real World

©

®

This is sung by a street-wise wiseguy.  He attempts to win your trust but there is something not quite right about that smirk on his face.

Slick Rick

©

®

A classic favorite, probably because of the "spray paint" chorus.  This is also part of a medley, Minority Male is the second part.  You get both for the price of one!

Minority Male

©

®

A little bit of social criticism Not real pretty but real.  This is the second part of a medley with Slick Rick.

Medley 2

©

®

This is the combined MP3 of Slick Rick and Minority Male.  Iwrote them as a medley and here it is in one MP3

Public Transit Romance

©

®

This is a light hearted tune poking fun at a situation any Public Transit  regular would be familiar with.  Surprisingly, a real hit in Texas.

Brand New Lover

©

®

 Phil does a great job on this tune.  The girls in the background really add to the fun.  I was working on an old time rock and roll feel here.  One of my favorites

You Taught Me How to Fall

©

®

 A beautiful tune.  Coreen does a wonderful job with this quietly powerful song.

Songs




My Father's Son

©

®

I wrote this as a tribute to my Dad.  It won an Honorable Mention in the 2006 Billboard Songwriting Contest.  A very nice tune

A Couple of Lifetimes Ago

©

®

This is a slice of life tune, a James Dean, Marilyn Monroe type tale for your listening entertainment.   I tried to draw a picture for you and develop some characters in six minutes.

Loved You Too Soon

©

®

 This a tune sung by a guy who just doesn't get it, until the end. Classic modern folk number

Heard All This Before

©

®

  A point of view. A little cynical but some things never change.

Summer of My Life

©

®

 This is just a fun tune.  Crank up your surf guitar, grab your ultra heavy pick and blast away on this one.  Anyone over 15 (maybe even younger) can relate to this one.

Maybe Someday

©

®

This is just a wonderful tune.   A lovely little love song sung by a young guy trying to find time for his girl

My R is Up My A

©

®

 This tune is in support of all the “Occupy” movements going on around the country.

The Trade

©

®

This torch song is an introspective thought sung by the incomparable Sally ElseyE. A beautiful tune that every woman who still thinks about that first love. Not Taylor Swift, more Faith Hill.

Ballad of He & She

©

®

  This is a fun tune with a great sax solo.  Sure to pick up your spirits.

See Her Again Tonight

©

®

 A great pop song with a little rock influence.  I think you'll like it.

On & On & On

©

®

This is a classic, sad country song.  Great fiddle work by Wanda V. in the back.

Check it out.

I'm Lucky

©

®

I'm Lucky is an upbeat  number that is sure to  bring a smile to your  face. You got and you know it and you are grateful.

Goodbye, goodbye

©

®

This is a tune about love gone bad. No regrets, just goodbye.

Dirty Hotel

©

®

This is a rocker with Eric and Audley laying down some great driving guitars. The vocal is processed to make it nasty. The whole thing is about a self-important guy  trying to score.

A Quite Remarkable Woman
