live & unreleased, entropy & endorphins etc.

Been trying to keep up the pace with frequent postings here, but I’ve been working on other things–including the long-threatened “live & unreleased” tracks compilation.  The music’s being mastered as I type, and I’m looking forward to hearing what the geniuses over at Yes Master have done. As of now, the tracks date from 1994-2009; various live recordings, and demos recorded either in studio or at home. This will be a limited-run release, and will be a part of the pre-release campaign for the ‘real’ new record–details coming soon.

When I get tired of fishing thru the swelling pile of bills, CDs, and tax return docs quickly covering my desk these days like kudzu, I go check out the garden. Or go for a run, which sometimes just makes you want to keep on running. I was out on the greenway yesterday, endorphins kicking in, feeling great but wondering if I was about to become a cardio-pulmonary emergency, when a slow-moving cyclist came toward me, with some kinda ghetto blaster up loud. And what ear-gift was I given when he passed?  “Babe”, by Styx!!! I thought I was gonna fall down laughing.

Back to the garden: I’ve planted some snow peas, cantaloupe, brussel sprouts; jalapeno, anaheim, and bell peppers. The lettuce we grew last Fall has come back with a vengeance. Want to grow some blackeyes or crowders, too, and some tomatoes.  I’m also cultivating what I hope will be a nice income tax refund, but doubt I’ll click the e-file button by 4/15.

Hope to see you in Iowa City and/or Chicago this weekend! In the meantime, come sail away . . .

    Hoping City of Refuge from your last Fitz appearance makes the cut. Still hoping it makes the set list for Saturday night. See ya there.
