This CD is a very special project for us. For years, and through all our other releases, there were always a few songs here and there that were recorded and yet didn't make the final cut. Often it wasn't because we thought they were inferior, though that was the case for a few, it was more that they didn't fit in with the other things we were recording at the time. For the most part these songs were recorded, as well as we can remember, between the late 1980's and the late 1990's. Some of these we played out at gigs (Soft Machine, Purple Prong, Desert Music) and others (Seattle, Your Love Fell) never saw the light of day. Thankfully Rich has never thrown away anything we've ever recorded...he even recorded all our rehearsals for years...so we had a wealth of songs to revisit. What you're going to hear is us Fools all over the musical map. There are some flat out rockers like Soft Machine and Gun on my Radio (which feature Rich at his guitar playing best). There are a few country tunes like Long Line of Ladies and Dying in Pieces. And because it's us, there are a few funny ones as well like Tractor Surfing and a manic confession song called The Truth. The most pleasing part of this CD for us has been the discovery that not only do these songs now make the cut, but they're actually pretty darn good. A case in point; as a young man I lived in Seattle for a year and hated it. So when the grunge scene started there in the early '90's I spewed out my memories in that song. Another song we thought was just so-so at the time was Desert Music. To hear it now is almost as pleasing as finding money in a lost bank account. And finally a word about the players. As always, Rich Bartlett plays both electric and acoustic on these songs, and in retrospect I think it's some of the best playing he's ever done...that's saying a lot. During this time period before Stacey Pedrick rejoined the band, we were a power trio (bass, guitar, drums) with a singer. So whenever we hit the studio we'd invite longtime friend Steve (Big House) Sadler. Steve can play almost anything very well, and on these tunes he plays guitar, keyboards, mandolin, and lap steel. It's also his unerring ear for harmony that helped us build the song Tractor Surfing. On bass for these recordings is brother and Fool for life Joe Holaday. Listen to his impeccable style and grace on Desert Music among others. Drummer Leo Black had some severe back issues during the '90's, and was forced to take a few years off, so much of the drumming on these tracks is by the great Jim Taft. He is all about power and taste, but also listen to his funny and wonderful vocal on the chorus of The Truth. Leo Black never overplays anything. He's all about precision and feel, from his perfect pop drumming on Tractor Surfing to his laid back country shuffle pacing on Dying in Pieces and Somebody's Eyes. And finally, old friend and drummer supreme John Muzzy (Muzz), best known for his work with Farrenheit and Beatlejuice, plays on Long Line of Ladies. So there you go...songs from all over the map...Lost and Found. Mike Girard Fools Mansion March, 2017
