"I was listening, thinking "Is that Jackson Browne on a live recording I've never heard"? The music is much fleshier and Neil Young-esque than anything Browne did.
"This guy is great"
John Jango Music Review
These songs are woven into the fabric of my life. They punctuate the highs and lows, the victories and defeats, love found, lost and found again. There is a recurring theme of light running thru the work that reflects into the dark and grey corners of the corridor traveled on the journey to the event horizon. The songs and music reveal a full spectrum of experiences of which I have been blessed. I hope you enjoy these songs, and pass them forward by sharing them with others. Send me your thoughts...I'll be listening...Ray.
"THE COMMON MAN" is out there working for a living, shirt sleeves rolled up and callus on his hands, The Common Man is out there working and giving to his God and to his land....God Bless The Common Man.
Immense subjects like mortality and man's role in the universe examined by the questions of a wild eyed young philosopher seeking the meaning of life in "THE SEEKER".
A realization by the restless wanderer that the "HOMELAND" holds the very essence of social gravity and intergenerational harmony.
The feelings from my first broken heart in "MAGGIE MAGGIE" are set in contrast to an ultra romantic unforgettable night of magic and love on a calm moonlit beach in " THE FINE SAND".
Touching pieces of heaven when life forever changed and I remembered how it felt to hold a dream and place a winning bet on "THE DAY WE MET".
Metaphysical Combat combined with the solitary struggle of personal survival in "MAN IT'S HELL" (in the danger zone).
You are treated to a brief encounter with "PART TIME MAN" the one whose feelings come and quickly pass and who sings the shortest songs.
A tribute to the greatest Taxi driver of all time, whose pen is forever silenced while driving down the highway steering with his knees writing franticly in his note book. Harry Chapin's spirit and essence recaptured to once more be felt in "LIVING IN THIS SONG".
"TOWARD THE SUN" is about refocusing our energy needs to escape the maze in the scientist's cage with Solar, Wind and Tidal Flow generators written in 1980 that has now found relevance in 2008 and beyond.
Have the recurring encounter with the stranger who's somehow not the same as the ones you had before in "LONG GONE".
Visit the "FORGOTTEN ARTIST" as he prepares a fresh canvas for another painting.
And after all this a look back in a still moment wondering...
"CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW".
