    This "Samsara" vinyl pressing is the result of a successful Indiegogo campaign on behalf of a Memphis/Nashville band that existed 1988-92, with a single eponymous David Kahne-produced release on Columbia (1990) and a minor hit ("Me & Elvis"). Produced by Ross Rice with all original members, both the CD and vinyl covers features art by Keith Brogdon of Thinking Out Loud Productions. Manufactured with loving care by the good folks at Memphis Record Pressing. Features nine of the twelve songs from the CD.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    All twelve songs are also available on the Samsara CD, which comes in an eco-pac with the cover design by Keith Brogdon of Thinking Out Loud. Both vinyl and CD have been mastered by Bruce Barielle, of the fine city of New Orleans, and though the music comes out at a fine level, we do not participate in "volume wars" so it's not overly compressed like many new rock CDs. Also a result of the Indiegogo campaign, with donors galore recognized in the gatefold!

about

will you be ready when the drum starts? has it started already?

lyrics

At the top of the morning, word comes down the wire
Fight sides are forming, streets are catching fire
Now here comes a man with a megaphone
He’s got something to say
We’re stepping off into the unknown
this is a new day

Off in the distance, the drum begins its song
One by one the people join the line
There is no resistance, the rhythms are too strong
And everyone’s in time
We’re coming hot to the microphone
We’ve got something to say
If you’ve had enough, well you’re not alone
We feel the same way!

Feel the big drums rolling out
When the big drums come, move or move over!

The men with the bombs and the guns on the run
They’ve lost their minds!
“Take one down and fifty takes their place!”
Deafened and stunned by the millions of drummers out on the line
Playing for their lives
And we’re coming hot to the microphone
We’ve got something to say
We’re staying here, we’re not going home,
We’ll go the whole way!
