    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

ah, to be above it all, flying the friendly skies! it's a long way to come down from...

lyrics

Dig the pixels, lipstick red and chrome
Clean lines to greet you at the Treasuredome
Pleased to meet me, I can see it in your seen-it-all eyes
Beautiful people caught in every glance
Tickets paid, we got to take our chances

Here in the upper strata, Transatlantic Lives
New York or Paris? I just can’t decide
Supersonic baby always gets you there on time
Through uncertain skies, sit back enjoy the ride
When you went out on the wing, said you wanted to fly
You left me wondering….why’d you have to leave me so high?
You left me high

Urgent messages flashlight up the phone
Wanna see you Friday but I’m stuck in Rome
Pleased to hear it, sorry about the big surprise
Beautiful travelers swathed in perfect light
But the weather’s threatening
Everybody goes nowhere tonight…
