Ahhhh!! Vacation, and while a bit lonely, I finally have some time to dabble in some online searching for rare music and inspiration! I ordered several hard to find Cd's by Toad The Wet Sprocket and a solo album by Tears for Fears alpha member Roland Orzabal. I will post a song or two from this solo album that was released on 9-11-2001! Anyone who knows me knows how I feel about TFF! The album is called Tomcats Screaming Outside! This is the first time I have heard these songs! This song is SNOWDROP! Oh yes, the pictures of Bailey when he was about 5 or so show that we shouldn't be too mad at winter.....Look at that pile of snow!

The next song is Hypnoculture and shows Roland's diversity.

I am psyched that this CD is on the way here from AMAZON! Most retail stores have such a poor selection of music these days! It is is very hard for Audiophiles and aficionados to find music in a form better than the tin sound a 128 mps MP3 provides! Toads first CD Bread and Circus is no longer being printed by the manufacturer so that was very hard to find, but I got it used from Amazon.
Now for a Toad song from Dulcinea...CROWING....love it and it has that ethereal sound that so reaches deep for me. There is an acoustic version of this for free on The Toad website by Glen Phillips along with a lot of other free songs by Glen and a new group he plays with WPA!

  1. This is a fun posting, my friend, with some GREAT tunes. I love hunting and searching for material on line and Amazon makes it so easy. I just ordered two old timers: David Crosby's brilliant, "If I Could Only Remember My Name" and Paul Kantner's "Blows Against the Empire." I look forward to more musical sharing, too. Thanks.
