Thanks, sondance. I've always be terrible about identifying voices on DA records. I think it was 25 years after the fact that I found out Jerry sang "Little Crosses" on Doppelganger, my first DA album.

Steve did have a lovely voice. Our loss is Heaven's gain.

I believe he sings lead on "Love in a Yielded Heart." He may also sing lead on "The Bible," but I'm less sure about that; he wrote it, so it's probably him. Both are on the band's first album.

Thank you, Ron. I hadn't heard. Sad to hear. Prayers for his family and loved ones.

From the 1994 Terry interviews on this site:
quote:
I don't know much about Bakersfield. Part of the song is based on my own personal experience -- that was the death of my grandfather. Bakersfield was where we had to go and see him in the hospital. That song was written out of the experience of going to that particular city; my feelings towards the town were definitely colored by that sense of impending death. It could have really been any city.

(different interview)
My grandfather died in Bakersfield. We would have to travel off to Bakersfield to see him in the hospital in one of the bleakest towns on the face of the earth. He had always been a strong man, central in my life, and someone I deeply admired. To see him in that hospital, shut down the way he was, was very disturbing.... The references to (sportscaster Vin) Scully are there because my grandfather was the guy who always had Vin Scully on the radio in his garage when I was a kid...

Once I'd read the above, the song's rage made sense to me. (As did the references to "Scully." At the time BL came out, the name "Scully" was mainly associated with The X-Files, so its use in this song really confused me!)

For me, "Bakersfield" is the standout track on this album. It does ring true for me.

I spent Summer 1987 in Bakersfield. It really was a desolate patch of sun-blasted hardpan full of Okies and fundamentalists. I was there as a summer missionary with the Baptist Student Union, and one pastor I spent a week working with kept trying to convert me from the error of Presbyterianism. It was in many ways a thirsty, soul-crushing place. Or maybe that was just me. I think TST acknowledges how a place can meld with our personal experiences with "God is with them, but I won't be there."

All that said, I would go back to Bakersfield. I met some good people there. I was going through my old photos yesterday and remembering them. Yeah, I might go back if I thought I could say hello the those pleasant few.

Finally complete! 08-07-2020 14:26 Forum: General Discussion


With the reissue/correct issue of Horrendous Disc, I was so close. Now, it has finally happened! I paid too much, but my new, shrinkwrapped copy of Bibleland arrived today. I now own all the studio albums by Daniel Amos! Rejoice with me, my sisters and brothers!

I had lost track of the band after Motorcycle until my sister bought MBD for me the Christmas after it came out. And I still only had the pre-Kalhoun stuff on cassette and no HD. Now I am complete!

Until I start trying to acquire all of Terry's solo stuff. And the Swirling Eddies. And Lost Dogs. Good grief, joy is so fleeting....

Seriously, looks like y'all put a lot of work into this. Looks good, guys!

I believe the HD cover is (l to r):

Mark Cook
Marty Dieckmeyer
Terry Scott Taylor
Ed McTaggart
Jerry Chamberlain
Alex McDougall

I may have Mark and Alex swapped.


Marty is on the left, then Mark, etc.as you list them.

Thanks! I knew I always got two of them mixed up; I just forgot which two. Big Grin

My copy arrived today. I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but it's in one piece anyway. I can't remember what this code might be for; I guess I should check what I actually pledged for.

I would say I tried, but couldn't spell it; but the real answer is no, I haven't. Is it about home studios?

I was interested to see the video of Terry recording vocals for the new album. It looked like there's not a lot of prep required for the physical space to do that. I suppose it would be different for something like drums, which would require acoustical traps and such. Confused

I am listening to my 5,936 songs on shuffle on GooglePlay and "Incredible Shrinking Man" came up. I'm not sure I've really listened to it on headphones/earbuds before, but I never noticed the extreme stereo-separation. It almost sounds like Terry recorded the vocals twice, once for each ear. There's certainly a lot of stereo panning, and certain instrumental parts are one one side or the other. It's always nice to still be discovering things all these years after I bought that old cassette.

Wow, I'm sorry to hear that, Audiori J. As the others said, your work on HD is very much appreciated. Honestly, getting a copy of Horrendous Disc was a dream come true for me. I'd been wanting a copy since I heard it that one time in 1987. Getting all the extras almost made me feel like I had discovered the band before I actually did in 1983. But I totally get that it was a ton of work and a good bit of frustration for you guys. Which is all to say, thank you.

I'm not on Facebook much either, just Messenger on my phone to communicate with my Mom in Alabama and my sister in Thailand. That's why I check here every day hoping someone has said something.

Reminds me, we need to get the Son Worshippers out..

We really, really need to do something to get some of those
really old songs out.

Has there been any progress on this?
