Take Me Down The Road Words and Music by David Elias copyright © 1997 David Elias I am wrong and I am right I am stronger in the light And I am calm after the night Take me down the road behind the night Get me down the road behind the night The night is clear the night is fine Someone’s near but I don’t mind Cause they don’t hear those finer lines Take me down the road behind the night Get me down the road behind the night I was born and I was saved From the cradle right to the grave With nothing more than what I gave Take me down the road behind these days Get me down the road behind these days When I return to wind and rain The hill and wood whisper my name I will begin to walk again Take me down the road behind these days Get me down the road behind these days

Straw Dream words and music by David Elias copyright © 1997 David Elias Hold out longer Try to last Make your fingers Try to grasp Falling in and out of consciousness Like leaves upon the barren plain Falling in and out of consciousness Like so many tears Mixed up in the rain Blue straw flowers Paint the way Try to follow As you stray Falling in and out of consciousness Like sunrise on your lonely day Falling in and out of consciousness Like so many tears Mixed up in the rain Heart of armor Birds of gold Try to conquer Try to keep from Falling in and out of consciousness Like candles with an uncertain fate Falling in and out of consciousness Like so many tears Mixed up in the rain Blue straw flowers Paint the way Watch for hours As you stray Falling in and out of consciousness Like twilight on your lonely day Falling in and out of consciousness Like so many tears Mixed up in the rain

about

"What excellent compositions...exceptional performances...and rich, harmonic, organic sound, as natural and mellow via DSD as one could wish...10 stars...Love it, big time." — Dr. David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback Online, www.positive-feedback.com

This Acoustic Trio session release was captured in the studio on a single day as a series of live takes without any edits or overdubs.

This collection of original material from the independent acoustic singer-songwriter David Elias is a special organic, natural sounding set of DSD recordings created at the Slipperworld Studios in La Honda, California (www.slipperworld.net). These 14 tracks feature David Elias (acoustic/vocal/harmonica), Charlie Natzke (acoustic/vocal) and Chris Kee (upright bass, Blue Coast Records).

Recorded by Charlie Natzke to no more than 8 tracks directly to a Sonoma DSD Workstation using Meitner converters. No artifical anything (effects, delay, reverb, etc.) used to mix this pure acoustic beauty.

The essence of the performance is the ambient and acoustic nature of all the instruments and vocals including natural resonance, harmonics, decay, and microphone bleed and decay using minimal micing without any artificial or digital effects.

Acoustic Trio DSD Sessions was recorded on a sunny day among the redwoods with the windows open. The musicians recorded standing roughly arms length from each other in a small circle with no isolation. A pair of microphones were positioned overhead to capture a stereophonic image of "the room". This was used as the only source of natural reverb in the mix.

The songs were mixed as DSD using a Sony mixer card in the Sonoma workstation. These tracks have never left the original DSD format.

As a result, what you hear from these pure DSD master recordings are the natural live performances of the trio, as if you were standing or sitting with them in the studio during the session. Songs are presented in the order they were played and recorded that day.

Mahalo Nui Loa to all,

- DE
