Song Description

MY early producer, Stephen Barncard and I embarked on a mammoth sonic journey about three years ago. We wanted to take my first album ..."Time Loop"..., released in May of 1972 and restore it to the current digital HD-quality standards. This required conversion of all the tracks of ALL the songs to Pro Tools files, cleaning, scrubbing and polishing each track of each song, convert and upgrade each track of each song to HD (HiRes/HiFi) quality sound, re-place a few tracks that had better takes, added a new song ("Red Tide" - a gem we thought we had lost!), re-mixed each track, then re-mixed again and again, sweetened one track that was missing an acoustic guitar part, then did a final polishing and re-mix ...and finally did a final HD mastering session. Anyway, we have re-named the restored album, ..."Beetles Are Coming"..., which is the title of one of the definitive tracks on the album. And I am happy to inform you that ... "Beetles Are Coming" ... has just been uploaded to the Internet. So, stop by and "give the record a spin", so to speak.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Great opening - grabbed me from the start. The hook is in the rhythm guitar. Lots of energy. Nice one!

    - Robert Donovan

Maybe Richie Havens influence with the open tuning, sounded like a mandolin at the start, but became a guitar after a bit. Intro was catchy, got ones attention right off the bat! The feel was a real mix of folkish, bluesy, rock all rolled into one. The transition /addition of the piano 1/2 way through was very nice...a cool breath calming the fast passe of the main drive.

    - Randy Steward

I made love with an angel once
She never compared to you
For I know she didn?t love me
She just wanted to see how I?d do
I stayed in the mountains of Mexico
And I lived off of the land
Every morning when I watched the sun rise
I wish I could have held you hand

Tell what the count is
Is it one, two, or three?
Or Have I been down so long
That I can?t even see?

I can still remember mama
With her apron blowing free
Wishing I would be a doctor
But, she left the choice up to me
But, I found the cow
Was my real mother
For she gave me her milk
My own mother never gave me hers
For she thought I was just a joke

Tell me what the count is
Is it seven or is it eight?
Or have I been down so long
That all I can do is hate?

I?ve made love with my mind so long
That now I live for the past
?Cause I still talk to you in my sleep
And wake up breathing fast
I?ve seen and touched many things
That I?ll never understand
But, now I know I know your heart
And understand your hand

Tell what the count is
Is it nine or is it ten?
Or have I been down so long
That I?ll never get up again
Never, never, never know
Never, never, never no
Never, never, never know
Never, never, never no
