Album Notes
D. Ray Polk’s 2012 CD “Migration” shows hints of Native American influence many of the tunes he’s written. D. Ray again played or programmed most of the music, with help from fiddle and vocal friends. As usual, this is not your basic mainstream music fare.
“Geronimo’s Bones” comes from a story revealed in the 1930’s about Skull & Bones members digging up & stealing the warrior’s skull in 1918. Is it true or not? Well, the Apache sure think so, and D. Ray seems to agree.
“Waterways” is a metaphor about the soul’s recycling life through human experience.
“Dream Song” was written in the late 1970’s following a vivid, inspiring dream.
The instrumental “Migrations” was inspired by spending a couple of days in Hopi land and learning about their creation myths & stories, particularly those about their immense and far reaching clan migrations, all ending up in Oraibi (on mesa 3 now in Arizona), the oldest continuously inhabited village in North America, dating back to 1125 A.D.
“Doin’ the Paradigm Shift”, in a light-hearted yet 80’s rock way, looks at the big energy shift that so many talk about.
“The Blonde” is a very early composition of D.Ray’s, aka 1965 fairly soon after taking up the guitar…so that’s why it’s not one of those blonde jokes.
“(Heal Me) Mother Earth” was inspired by a group experience on Sac & Fox land in Oklahoma near an ancient meteor impact, with vortex energy to rival Sedona!
So load this CD into your player and get ready to take off – and enjoy!
