Album Notes
While living for two years in Munich, Germany, the concept for Postcards From Vermont took shape with enough new and revisited material to fill a Volume 2 in the near future. Being a native Vermonter who probably stayed too many years in the Green Mountain State before heading out to view the great big world, these songs accurately channel the dreams, visions, loss, adventures, and loves experienced growing up in the Southern part of the State, where there were more paper mills than dairy farms, and rivers ran in many colors from the inks and dyes dumped as waste from those same mills. A lifetime spent performing and writing music culminates in these mature, clear and well produced contemporary folk songs that all tell a story as part of the larger Vermont theme. Some are revisits from earlier works, including the original "Last Farmer In Vermont" released in 1987, and " Quarryman," written with Julie Last and appearing on "Painted Heart." "Never Been To China" is from Veitch's "Heartlander" CD. The new works were mostly all recorded in Germany and the tracks flown in to a pro-tools session at Julie Last's Coldbrook Studio in Bearsville, Ny. One track, "Postcards From Vermont," was recorded at Rick Davis's "Majik Kabin" studio in Ascutney Vermont. And "Sunday Driving" was recorded live at the Flynn Theater at a 2001 show Veitch opened for Shawn Colvin.
