Radio Waves – A simple, breezy love song with a Van Morrison-inspired vibe, this features funky piano and Hammond by Bacon Brothers band mate Joe Mennonna.
Wherever This Highway Goes – This infectious road song and reminiscence on musician salad days highlights Paul’s self-harmonizing chops. The music behind Paul’s lyrics was co-written and performed by the Bacon Brothers rhythm section: Paul on bass with guitarist Ira Siegel and drummer Frank Vilardi.
Season of Joy – Co-written with musician and painter Raffaele D’Onofrio, here’s a timeless Americana folk-hymn that evokes the earlier era of back-porch music often heard at such bygone New York institutions as The Gaslight and Folk City. It features background vocals by Jane Barnett and Mary Ellen Bernard with piano and accordion by Joe Mennonna.
Light @theEOL (Light at the End of the Line) – This commentary on the abysmal state of politics was originally released as a digital single and video in 2012. Still all too relevant today – and often requested by fans – it’s included here as a bonus track.
