The King of the Sawdust ring – From the cd ” Sometimes you win”

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.

 It  will soon be available here, and on i-tunes

“Sometimes You Win” played by Simon Paradis and Joe Stanton during a live album recording at Strait Sound Studio in Roberts Creek BC.
