    (SHIPS NOV 13, 2020) This project was propelled by and named for the inspiration and joy in the experiencing Vinyl records and full albums. Mastered by veteran Vinyl Mastering expert Scott Hull at Masterdisk, then pressed at the boutique Gotta Groove Records, the masters and test pressings were carefully reviewed by Kirsten and her team throughout the entire glorious process. The 12" Vinyl includes exclusive artwork and liner notes not available elsewhere -- not to mention the warmth and power of the grooves.

lyrics

Well I travel the highway
You know I made many scenes
Been lost in darkness
I was out on the streets
I felt so unhappy
You’d think I wanted to die
But if I have your sweet, sweet love
I know I’ll get by

This old world is turning
Like wheels on a train
I hold on to each moment
Cause it won't come again (let me tell you)
I'm not educated
But there's one thing I know

I'd rather be blind
Than to see you go

I feel that for strong man
Knows how to be weak
And it makes me feel so good
Every time, every time
Every time he speaks
Revelation
He’s got a revelation in his smile
It feels so much like in heaven
You know I might stick around a little while

Don't leave me darling
Whatever you do
If I'm standing beside you
I know we'll get through
There’s is only one thing
That I want you to know

I'd rather be blind
Than to see you go
