Released June 2010, on Lucid Veil Records: 10-song CD titled "It Happened One Evening" -- a retrospective blend of chamber pop, lo fi, and progressive rock, the recording spanned some years, the first group of songs being completed in Hollywood, the balance later in DC. Remixed, sequenced, and mastered this year. Musicians playing on songs recorded in Hollywood included Peter Case (The Plimsouls, The Nerves), Patrick Jones (The Red Rockers), and Glen Laughlin (The Dickies).
From Roctober Magazine, October 2010:
"(Lucid Veil) Mark is the man! Dramatic story songs, or story-like songs with madrigal like singing and sax or harmony or keyboard flourishes that make this fall somewhere between lo-fi Phil Spector drama and outsider art."
From Sea of Tranquility, September 2010:
"sounds like Al Stewart and dare I say, at least on 'The Flying Dutchman,' a bit like Roy Orbison. . . . memorable film-score-like sax solos on the title track and 'Song of Songs.'"
