a -super-special-silly-serious-sensitive-sweet'n sour-scintillating solo-singer-songwriter-survivor CD :-) 19 Tracks, (yes, [sigh] including the airport song...)] something for everyone. This project is co-produced by Donny Holcombe and Scotte Moore Also featured throughout the album is the fine lip-bleeding harp of one Mr. John Whitlow of Scuffletown fame. The project was recorded in a mountain cabin, a home studio, and a highway hotel. - song notes:

All Day Today - remake of a song I wrote in '96- been wanting to do this for a long time - it's now huge, and a cool opener. One of my dad's favoirite songs too :- )
Trying to Believe- another remake of an old song with some new Donny production magic that has breathed incredible fresh life into it.
Times Like These- Scott helped me reshape the music into something way more exotic. There's also a dance re-mix version that will show up sometime in the future.
Rusty Brick Road- all acoustic, one of my favorite finger-picking tunes, and one of the 2 songs that earned a winning spot in Kerrville :-)
Make Up your Mind- There's an 'extendo-jam'-reprise of this song at the end of the sisc that is one of the coolest spontaneous musical moments I've lived through.
No Matter What it Takes - this is a new he-said-she-said love song in the vein of 'Letting Go' with one of my most favorite chorus's ever
Like it's All You Have to Do- Wasn't sure about this one until I played it at a weekend retreat and one girl told me she got chills. Those are ususally keepers...
Have You Ever- Should have called this "20 Questions" because it is entirely comprised of questions. 20 or them actually ... :-)
The Message of Hope- One of those rare epic-artist-defining-you'll-hear-this-one-at-every-show-type songs with a monstrous end.
Let it Go- My pal and hero, Matthew Fullerton, contributed a word or two to this one (not sure which ones.. :-)
When It Rains- I really should not be putting it on another disc, but this time, we finally got it right...
Brand New Day- gentle reminder that the fat lady has not yet sung
Airport Song- The liner notes in the disc include a special apology for this one.
Long Distance Dad - hard to write, but important
Hope, AK - it's a real town (in Alaska). I went there. Wrote a song about it. Walzable.
Midnight in Wheeling - a single moment in 1996 that's still with me.
Keep On Keepin on - ie. KOKO. (!)
Summer Lane - Where I now live. Also one of the videos featured on the not-yet-released-DVD (fall?)
Benediction - I close a lot of shows with this one and the only recording of it is a shaky one on the live album, captured moments after writing it. This is how it really sounds.

No album promo-piece would be complete without a quote from someone who is supposed to know something about music. Peter Mayer is a friend, musical mentor, brilliant songwriter, and, when he's not touring with his band, is Jimmy Buffet's guitar player. I figured that might qualify for 'official good quote source' He wrote the following:

David Bailey's songs should be carried along on your journey as a provision for times like these. They stand for courage and faith; they lean toward the light, in a time when darkness and defense is staging a powerful sit in in our world. My favorite track on Rusty Brick Road describes this work best. It's a "message of hope that never grows old, its the heat of the fire that drives out the cold"
(thanks peter :-)

I enjoyed both the tapes very much . VERY INSPIRERING
Daid's music is an inspiration to all. I am so happy a friend told me about his music. I like listening to it while driving as everything is quit and you can hear the words and meditate. Lifes trials put to music. Thank you


Good Stuff
I had high expectations upon buying this CD and after listening to it a few times, bailey has exceeded those expectations. If you are looking for a CD full of inspiration, faith, hope and love, then get this CD.


Salve for a hurting soul....you get me through the bad times, make the good times even better...thank you, david

Jan Robinson

Mr. Bailey continues to amaze me.
Truly a talented man. Thanks for sharing your God given talents!! I have the entire Bailey collection. Love them all!!

Phil Wrzesinski

New favorite in my extensive david m. bailey collection
Fabulous collection of songs that dig down deep in your soul and make you think and feel. Tunes like It's All You Gotta Do, Rusty Brick Road, and Keep On open your eyes to new (better) perspectives on life. This CD is now tops in my david m. bailey collection! Keep on keeping on david!!!


"Precious In "His" Sight!"
"David,I give you Praises...My very favorites on this, are *Message Of Hope*[which says it all] and also I enjoy *Brand New Day*.....Listening to your Beautiful music makes me SMILE!!"

Marc Hosch

David at his musical and lyrical best!
His eighth album, David delves deeper into his intricate melodies, adding little doses of country and southern rock along the way, yet never straying far from his roots in folk music. Every song here is awesome, especially the re-make of When It Rains, The Airport Song, the poignant Long Distance Dad, and The Message of Hope. Talent and originality like this is hard to come by (even in folk music) in a world of cookie-cutter musicians and formulated business deals, yet David disregards all the rules, doing what he pleases - and it works. A talented songwriter and musician whose messages are worth heeding, David work is par excallance!


Fresh air.
Music is great and relaxing. Makes you think
about life and what we waste time worring about.
I will collect his work. Simply wonderful!

Mary Waite

david's music and his message of hope inspire us once again!
david's unstoppable talent is showcased on this CD, and it was so worth waiting for! Listening to Rusty Brick Road is just like sipping ice-cold lemonade in the porch swing on a lazy summer afternoon, and thanking your lucky stars that you've been so blessed. A tender, yet powerful, message in the hands of the master.

Sandra McGettigan
