Song Description

"Taxi To Tonganoxie", is the only CD of Chet Nichols' music that features full back-up bands in the studio. The material on this CD was recorded, engineered and co-produced by Stephen Barncard in two different studios back in the early and mid 1970's. The songs, "Paper Burns" and "You Were They And They Were You" were recorded at Wally Heider's studio in San Francisco. The other tunes were recorded at Stephen Barncard's home in the hills above Beverly Glen in Los Angeles. The back-up band at the Beverly Glen location consisted of a fabulous group of artists: Laura Allan (Laura Allen)- vocals, Fuzzy Oxendine - drums (Sons, Grape, Jerry Miller Band, etc), Wayne Goodwyn on Fiddle, lap steel (Emmylou), Ricky Wallace, Estrella Berosini - vocals and Billy Berosini - bass (Jackson Browne, Brewer & Shipley). Chet played acoustic guitar, dulcimer,electric guitar and piano. Even Stephen got in on the act and made an appearance playing bass! The Heider sessions consisted of Buddy Cage - pedal steel guitar (New Riders of The Purple Sage), Pete Sears - bass (New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Jefferson Starship) and Spenser Dryden - drums (The Airplane, The New Riders Of The Purple Sage). Even though this collection of tunes is almost 35 years old, people are still discovering it, enjoying it and sharing it.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Better than a cup of coffee. Great energy in this performance. The harmonies were spot on - getting it this tight took some real effort. I liked the slowed down melody in the chorus it gave the ear a break and allows the chorus to stick in the brain. Overall you have a winning style here it was a pleasure to listen.

"Paper Burns"
Lyrics and Music by Chet Nichols

Verse 1.
You say you love me, you say you care
But, all you do is shake your head and say is cut your hair
Now, I'm just a young man
No, and not as wise are you
But, I do know a few things to be true
You'll never get anywhere if you criticize
You'll wind up bellies-up, in the pool of your own lies
Now, I can see by your eyes, you think I'm a fool
But, I've been to school and I've learned ...

Chorus
Paper burns
Pretty paper burns
Dirty paper burns

Verse 2.
The Last Whole Earth Catalogue is right here in my hands
I'm gonna build myself a dome and buy myself some land
This seems to be the dream of many a young man
Seems it may have something to say about making a stand
But remember....
