From "Crossing" SACD/DSD Download 2005/2014 release. FLAC 24/88.2 downsample master on BC. Recorded DSD to 8 tracks mixed DSD to stereo and 5.1 surround sound. DSD master tracks available at www.davidelias.com

As another experiment we decided to overdub a few electric instruments on top of a live acoustic band performance.  In this track, the original session was recorded with Chris Kee, Peter Tucker and myself. We then added John Havard's powerful electric guitar solo tracks (2 tracks) and David Phillips pedal steel. The result is a high impact DSD recording mixed by Gus for both stereo and 5.1 surround.


Morning Light / Western Town (from "Crossing") – David Elias

Morning light, western town
Morning light, western town
Roadside crosses lay me down

You can read it on the red brick
When you are up against the wall
Some said they saw you flying
Some said they saw you fall
No matter where you're walking
You're underneath it all

Is that a piece of paper that you're holding
Is that a prayer book in your hand
Written in some foreign language
From some obscure promised land
No matter what they're saying
You still don't understand

You can't beat the big prediction
You can't estimate the odds
You can't treat a false addiction
With some even falser Gods
You wander cross the planet
With your head up in the clouds

Morning light, western town
Morning light, western town
Roadside crosses lay me down
