The Mother Hips ‘Live At The Great American Music Hall’ is out now on digital and limited double-CD. “This album consists of recordings of concerts performed on December 15th and 16th, 2017 at San Francisco’s famed Great American Music Hall. We feel this album represents well the band as it was at that time, and that it also represents well the community that has grown around the music contained herein. In that sense these are not recordings of a band playing to a live audience so much as they are recordings of a community coming together and making the sounds of joy, of appreciation, of friendships new and old, and even some sadness. There are lots of others sounds on these recordings too but you’ll have to just listen for yourself. You might even hear your own voice in there. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.” – The Mother Hips
Reserve your CD from the Mother Hips store or the Blue Rose store.

I wrote this song maybe to comfort myself, to try and make myself feel good about the path I’ve taken in life. It was originally written in 6/8 and I played it like that many times. This version is in 4/4 with the kick drum played on the upbeats which I think gives the lyrics a more positive tone.
