and why not discuss Val's 1994 solo album "inhabit my heart"?

Dear Angry Edwin,
Are you ever going to put this cd
out-of-print? I know it costs money
to keep it in-print but it's pretty
cool. I really like the wierd
version of Phantom Lover (and a
couple of others).

It's not that we're going to "put" it out of print--it's that, like any self-publishing band, we need to weigh the cost of re-printing old stuff versus the cost of printing new stuff for the first time, and right now we're trying to get people to pay attention to "Little Light." Everything will be back in print eventually, I promise. (It may take a little while.) Heck, we still have plenty of copies of "Inhabit My Heart."
I like "Phantom Lover" too! That song has developed a lot over the years.

"Too Near the Sun" -- What an enchanting tune. The more I hear it the more I grow to like it.
Is this ever part of the GrooveLily folk set? If so, I'd love to hear it sometime. Perhaps at the 9/14/01 Museum of Early Trades & Crafts performance in Madison, NJ? (I know I may be pushing my luck requesting another song, but what's the worst that could happen - public humiliation ?)

Hey Rob - so glad you like "Too Near the Sun"! (a song that helped me get over the end of a relationship...that one is close to my heart...)
We do perform it occasionally, and will try to include it for you on 9/14.

Lightning And The Tree
Wow, what a wonderful song. How can such a short and simple song be so powerful and meaningful, especially in today's times? I guess that's great songwriting.
To me the song speaks of how our behavioral norms (i.e., the things we do without really thinking about it) can have unintended consequences on people around us. Perhaps we should take a moment to "look again" and consider the impacts of our actions on others.
And think about how much nicer a planet we'd have if more of the world's leaders would "look again" and consider the impacts their actions on others. (India/Patistan, Israel/Palestinian Authority, Unionists/Republicans in Northern Ireland - you get the idea). Sure its unrealistic, but its sure worth striving for.
Another example of GrooveLily music that really makes a difference. Thanks Val!

This is my study cd. I can't stand to listen to anything else when working on papers, reading before exams or any other stressful college activity. It makes me happy and mellow. Thanks for making such great music that keeps me sane.

I just bought "Inhabit My Heart" and when I first heard Lightning and the Tree I gasped and then tears rolled down my cheeks--what a beautiful, powerful song. And I have lived the truth of, "I never meant to hurt you, said the husband to the wife. I only see that I am destined to relive my father's life." I fought that for over 30 years and did not emerge victorious--but emerged. Thanks, Val.
