Magnolia Alternative Tracks

Prairie Tales

by CommonUnion59

These tracks, with the exception of Shadows, were recorded live in the studio during our Magnolia Waltz sessions. The version of Shadows in this set was meant to be on the CD, but we decided to use the other version instead. You can download all the tracks on Prairie Tales for free!

Think On It

Wild and Ragged 

A great audience last night for our wild and ragged Bread and Roses gig. They were so enthusiastic and full of fun, even playing percussion with us (thanks Willie!). We added in a couple of new songs we'd never played in public before and happily, they were well received too. It's funny how playing a brand new song can be so nerve racking though, it's a little like leaving your kid on the first day of kindergarten, you're pretty confident they'll make friends and be fine, but you worry anyway...Um, getting back to the subject, we enjoyed working with Marion and Nancy from Bread and Roses, who did the sound for us, a little part of the world is a happier place today because of your giving spirits. As always, it was way more fun than we even expected, and we always expect it to be fun. We truly get more out of it than we put in every time, Thanks!

One Way Or Another... 

Our new songs are glowing just over the horizon. It's like waiting for the warm sun to rise after a chill night. Or, like anticipating the big drop on a roller coaster ride. Like a child's anticipation on Christmas morning...well, you get the idea. We can't wait to get it all these new songs on a silicon chip and then to your ears. It's high time for sure, and a long meandering road to getting there. Happiness is the feeling though and we continue to make progress every day, one way or another...

The Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Round... 

Lots of gigs coming up, studio waiting for our new songs. This year is shaping up to be pretty busy. As Hendrix said "keep on pushing straight ahead." No other way to be! So jazzed about our new songs, we can't wait for them to be heard by everyone. 
Love and peace all, we'll talk soon.

Spinning Our Wheels 

Sometimes it feels like we're spinning our wheels. Time keeps moving and life gets complicated at times. Then, the creativity flows, thoughts of new songs come into focus and grow like some kind of crazy children right before our eyes. Pretty cool how it all happens...So, we've been taking our time, writing, playing, singing, playing, writing, on and on...we are really this close to recording these new songs and feeling so good about the way they're coming out. We've got some new shows lined up to play them at, and a studio chosen to record them at, and an old Subaru to get us there and back...spin on, spin on...
