ABOUT THIS ALBUM

SONG NOTES

Had To Say I Love You - (Ludwick)
Roger wrote this one for his mom, who got to hear it for the first time in July 2008 at a live show. It was a very cool thing - tears and stuff. We should all be so lucky to be able to do something like this for our loved ones. (Roger - lead vocal, guitar; Mark - slide guitar, vocal; Wende - vocal, percussion; Patrick - bass, percussion; Thomas - drums, percussion)

59 Hill (Floaters) - (Hilyard, Harris, Dodge)
Wende wrote this anti-development rant in response to an actual local development. The subsequent events described in the song, however, are pure fantasy. Regardless of your viewpoint, nobody wants to see the forest next door turn into ticky-tacky. (Mark - lead vocal, piano; Wende - vocal, percussion; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

How Do You Feel - (Harris, Dodge, Kemper, Donicht)
Steve wrote this one about that delicate time in a relationship when you\'re not sure about anything. (Wende - lead vocal; Mark - piano, vocal; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Another Night - (Ludwick, Dodge)
Way back before Roger and I (Mark) recorded the CD Time Heals as the band Giza, Roger wrote this song and I inadvertently reappropriated the changes and wrote the song Strive, which is on that CD. So now we finally record the song Roger had written in the first place as One Ton of Ducks. (Roger - lead vocal, guitar; Mark - whammy wah guitar, vocal; Wende - percussion, vocal, Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Might As Well Anyway - (Dodge)
All in. Go for broke. Shoot the moon. Take a chance. (Mark - lead vocal, guitar; Wende - vocal, percussion; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Darkness Falling - (Harris, Palmby)
Steve started writing this one right after the invasion of Iraq. (Wende - lead vocal; Mark - piano, vocal; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Footsteps In The Night - (Ludwick, Dodge)
This is a Giza song, but it\'s very different the way this band does it. It\'s about losing a loved one the hard (permanent) way. (Roger - lead vocal, guitar; Mark - lead guitar, vocal; Wende - percussion, vocal, Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Where Are You - (V. Dodge, M. Dodge)
My wife Vicki and I wrote the basic ideas for this song back in the 80s. It\'s about dreams and aspirations, finding your place in the universe, and making contact. (Mark - lead vocal, piano; Wende - vocal, percussion; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Here By My Side - (Harris, Dodge)
This Steve Harris song is very different by this band, and sung from a female perspective. (Wende - lead vocal; Mark - lead guitar, vocal; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Sing Out - (Ludwick)
A song about singing protest songs. At some point, you just have to say ... enough. \"The only thing necessary for evil to thrive is for good men of conscience to do nothing.\" - Edmund Burke. (Roger - lead vocal, piano; Wende - vocal; Mark - lead guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Here On Island Time - (Harris, Vensas, Dodge)
After a hard day of Singing Out, sometimes you need to just relax. This is a largely live-in-the-studio version of a song we\'ve been playing for years, and now sounds nothing like the previously-recorded version. (Wende - lead vocal; Mark - lead guitar, vocal; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Another Man - (Christensen, Dodge)
Bob Christensen and I performed this song way back in the 70s when we were playing out 6 nights a week. Since it\'s an original song, we had to slip it in between other songs that people recognized while they were still on the dance floor. It\'s also on Bob\'s Rear View CD. (Mark - lead vocal, piano; Wende - percussion, vocal, Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)

Keeping Me Awake - (Harris, Dodge)
This track has an awesome groove, captured live in the studio. Another song from last year\'s Island Time CD, but you\'d hardly recognize it. It showcases the mad skills of Thomas, our hyperactive drummer, and some risky keyboard work. (Mark - lead vocal, piano; Wende - lead vocal, percussion; Roger - guitar, vocal; Patrick - bass; Thomas - drums)
