Last summer I put together a compilation disc to be available for the Vancouver Island musicfest.
Its a collection of 10 songs, from all of the previous CD’s, including 2 previously unreleased instrumental tunes that were cut from the final version of Passenger Stanton.
One of those tunes, “Light rain with a dark roast” was originally called Sleeping dogs, but having stole that title for a song on The Precious Littles record. and with the Vintage CD at the pressing plant , I still didn’t have a name for the song.
Milling over the last of the graphics at Wheatberries coffee shop in Sechelt, I needed a quick decision, so looking out the window at the West coast drizzle, sipping on an Italian dark roast, I wrote in the track listing…Light rain with a dark roast.
It suits the song, because it’s a mellow relaxing kind of song, and it has 2 sections, the second one a little more aggressive than the first, so I figure thats when the caffiene kicks in.
The cd is available for sale at live gigs for $10, or just shoot me an e-mail with your mailing address and I can send you one.
