Album Notes
Brian Elkington and Dan Mohs first met as students at Hamline University, Saint Paul, Minnesota. The duo performed all around the United States for 10 years, from New Mexico to California to Washington, Nashville and then back to Minnesota. Then in 2007, the boys got together Down Under to work on the CD. Michael McGlynn has masterfully produced the 12 original songs, highlighting Brian and Dan’s harmonies and the talents of some of Australia’s finest musicians. What a time they all had recording in Sydney: at Studios 301 with its state of the art equipment a favorite of leading musicians from around the world, and at Niki Nali studios with its hominess and its incredible location on the wharves of Sydney Harbor.

The collection of songs starts with one familiar to their fans, Winter Wine, pretty much about those moments you'd just like to hang onto and relive over and over, and ending with their newest song, Overtures, which comments on the plight of our world today and offers some hope (be prepared to shed a tear). The 10 songs in between are a mix of superbly crafted songs that change pace, tell stories and will have you relating to the moments they capture. Old love (A Good Old Love), losing love (A Fly in Amber) and hope for new love - or at least a lot of fun (Can't Make it Tonight) are mixed in with a few surprising themes: our changing climate (Another Prayer for Rain), images of places (Snow in Saint Paul, Bourbon Street Blues) and dreams about spaces (Country Home and Midshipman's Dream). Track 9, Lovers Waltz, is a beautiful song for a wedding and has been sung by the duo at many. All in all, it's a unique collection of songs that have been superbly produced - such a musical feast.

Ron Garcia

Brian Elkington and Dan Mohs are 2 guys that somehow lived below the spotlights and over the past 30 years have stayed true to their art. They make me feel that age doesn\'t matter, and that the passing of time has been good for us all. I first heard Burbon St Blues in 1976. When I put it on again this month I was nervous that it might not capture the reality of post-Katrina New Orleans. I was wonderfully surprised that the song not only stands up to the test of time, but seems to give honor to the rag time spirit of the bajou. Brian and Dan - Thanks for keeping the flame alive.
