New Release 2017 - Two Track Mind - Solo Acoustic!
First MQA CD released anywhere in January 2017

No one has heard these solo acoustic tracks before this new release in 2017. They are recorded with just 2 microphones (2 tracks!) on voice and guitar. There is nothing edited. Recorded and mixed digitally as hi-res, then mastered for CD release (16/44.1).

MQA Encoding provided by MQA Ltd., UK greatly restores the source PCM recordings to the natural ambient nature of the room and performance. Mic'd close and intimate. Solo Acoustic.
Hear it for yourself.... Online CD is for sale.

Plays from any CD player and sounds way acoustic live studio!

Plays with Studio Authenticated MQA from CD or ripped (ALAC, FLAC, WAV, AIF). I don't know where else MQA CD's are being sold, but here's one online through good old CD Baby.... Aloha!


released December 21, 2016

Track Name: Mend My Mind (Solo Acoustic)
Mend My Mind
- by David Elias

Mend my mind on a summer day
Arguello said what he had to say
No one wants it any other way
So mend my mind on a summer day

Mend my heart on the open shore
Where winds will blow then they blow some more
Colors fade away from rich to poor
Mend my heart on the open shore

Clear my head on an autumn day
The sun is strong and the winds are grey
The party’s over ain’t no one would stay
So clear my head on the autumn day

There’s nothing wrong with a rainy day
The skies may cry for yesterday
Winds will sing to find another way
There’s nothing wrong with that rainy day
Track Name: And I Said (Solo Acoustic)
And I Said
- by David Elias, 9/11/2001

It's the end of summer see the red lights running
Cross the open interstate
And the wind feels good through the summer wood
The evening's getting late
I'm with my little boy he's wearing corduroy
And he's looking up at me
He says why they kill those people there
In New York City

And I Said...

So we lit three candles sitting on the wall
While the stars were coming on
And we said our prayers in the early fall
For those never really gone
One for the bodies of the innocent
Good God let them rest in peace
And one for the minds in the universe
That learn from tragedy
One for the spirit and the souls at large
May we find true unity
In a little boy wearing corduroy
He's looking up at me

And I say...
Track Name: Heaven's Destiny (Solo Acoustic)
Heaven's Destiny
- by David Elias

The moon was golden just like the sun
Clouds were furrowed just like your brow
These days of old have just begun
To catch up back where we are now

And those dreams of gold don’t grow on trees
They seek the bottom of the sea
When you are old and look like me
You’ll follow heaven’s destiny

Dreams of old have just begun
Shining through the dust and sun
When you are old and you look like me
Remember heaven’s destiny

That ring of fire may burn some wings
Sure as the crow and sparrow sings
Well they’ll float on down to easy street
And call it heaven’s destiny
Track Name: The Riddle Song (Solo Acoustic)
The Riddle Song
- by David Elias

I took a little piece of thread from the pillow on my bed
I put it underneath my arm to keep it safe and keep it warm
It found its way into my heart
Where it was destined from the start
That’s the way it goes, ain’t that the way it goes

I picked a penny from the floor
Walking through the hardware store
I put it into my old shoe, it seemed to be the thing to do
It found its way into my soul filling up an empty hole
That’s the way it goes, ain’t that the way it goes

A feather landed on my knee
When I was leaning ‘gainst a tree
It wasn’t any kind of test
Just looking for a place to rest
It found its way under my skin
Grew to spread its wings within
That’s the way it goes, ain’t that the way it goes
