As I recall, this was a promo video done for the "California Blues" release. During the earliest days of that project, Randy explained that his intent was to spotlight or focus on the kind of blues that he first came to love as a kid, hanging out and hearing it at his uncle's (Ed Pearl's) club, the Ash Grove. Vocalist Rachel Andes (Matt's daughter) despite being very young (just fifteen; yikes!) at the time, was not only really beautiful, but also an obviously gifted, natural vocalist. Fearless, too; she had no problem whatsoever with stepping right into performance with this group of supremely talented long-time music professionals, all of whom she'd known, literally, her entire life. I'm pretty certain that both Matt and Mark are still living in Texas. Mark had been for some years Ian McLagan's bassist in his long running Bump Band, but I believe they've since parted ways. The 2009 Audio Fidelity release, "California Blues Redux" really captures this chapter of Randy's Spirit, and it's highly recommended. Aside from Randy and John Locke, both now gone, rest in peace to Liberty Loria, bassist on most of the "California Blues" sessions. Not just a stunningly talented and gifted musician; guitarist, vocalist, and composer, Randy was just a really, really good guy. He was a great friend, and I still miss him every day.

Thanks for that, Rick...

I just got Spirit Chronicles---HIGHLY recommended!!

Chronicles, 19671992 is a compilation album from the band Spirit. It followed on the heels of the previous year's compilation Time Circle, 1968-1972, which had focused on releasing material from the band's first four studio albums. Chronicles concentrates on unreleased material, such as outtakes, alternate and live versions, and some re-recordings.



Check out this BRILLIANT re-recording of Nature's Way with female backing vocal!!

Nature's Way..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRUUpRV1u7A


CD BABY--

"When I first heard Chronicles 1967-1992,I knew I had posession of the Spirit tape I had hoped for 15 years.Not since the 78 release of the L.P. Live Spirit had any thing that intense been produced by Randy or Spirit.Randy sort of went through an identity crisis during this period, due;in part to rejection of his music by major labels.Mind you, these labels didn`t mind producing Barry Manilow or Milli-Vanilli;sic-sick.Imagine; a 4 hour road trip with Boy George-Men-At-Work or Husker-Du for your listening enjoyment.Randy kept our spirits high with the release of several discs throughout this difficult period; Journey Through Potatoland,Spirit of 84{great album},Rapture in the Chambers[great new Spirit]and of course; the underrated Tent of Miracles.All of the afforementioned Spirit discs are a testament to a specific time in Spirit history with a specific project theme.What makes Chronicles 1967-1992 such a great disc is not only it`s historical documentation of Spirit`s music [25yrs.-22songs]but the release of such gems as Somebody Loves You-Lake of Love-King of Days-Reeling in the Night and others.I ordered this disc from C.D.Baby tonight;I have been trying since 93-94 when I acquired the cassette.It has not been available-until now-although limited quantities are still available. Buy this while disc while there is still an opportunity- a Spirit essential."

By coincidence, I have just received a Facebook request to become a friend of Larry "Fuzzy" Knight.I never saw the original Spirit because they only toured the UK once I believe, but I saw Randy and Cass a couple of times and met Randy at a gig he was doing at a pub in south London.
