Bob Smith is a mindful engineer...providing the best performance and recording situation

that would capture the spirit of four musical friends...

allowing for a great live studio moment to truly shine through. 

"Devil's Dream" is a traditional bluegrass song that was spontaneously recorded at Earworks Studio

by Tom Farley, Bob Smith, Greg Wikle and Shea Roebuck...four guys just having some fun.

I had never played the song before...the four friends had never played it together before.

Just a great magic studio performance moment...live and in color...first and only take...

re-engineered and mastered by Tom.

"Our Better Angels" by Tom Farley

Tom Farley: Acoustic Guitar; Vocals

Recording Engineer: Alton Riddick

A hope and a prayer that the better angels of our nature will break through the hate and prejudice

that dominates our society...and our country...

poisoning all of the incredible possibilities and opportunities

that can only come from a respect, caring, and love for each other.

It is also is a benchmark moment for me and Alton: our first music recording session together.

The results are dynamic and impressive.

Tom Farley: Vocals; Lap Steel Guitar; Percussion/Bass/Organ Composition

Greg Wikle: Electric Guitar Rhythm and Lead

Tried out some new vocal angles on this gritty little rocker...

with great electric guitar lead and rhythm tracks created by Greg Wikle,

it is already a favorite in the "rock and fun" category.

Another studio duet from Tom and Greg...

continuing a great recording and performance history.

Originally written (with lyrics) as a testament to the experience of Alzheimer's Disease,

this song continues to inspire reflection and interpretation.

With a great percussion section from Peter Shonerd,

and new Background Vocal sections,
