ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Though best known as an award-winning songwriter, Terry Kitchen is also a compelling interpreter and live performer. Rubies in the Dust collects some choice covers and live tracks, as well as collaborations with guest performers Barbara Kessler and Rebecca Lynch.

1. In My Room An a cappella version of the Brian Wilson classic, originally a hidden track on Terry's 2004 album That's How It Used to Be. With Brice Buchanan and Sarah Telford on harmony.
2. Ruby Tuesday Mick and Keith's prettiest song, originally recorded for the Rolling Stones tribute album You Can't Always Want What You Get. With Lucy Martinez on harmony.
3. Nothing Works Better #3 "I recorded a song called 'Nothing Works Better' on my 2007 album Heaven Here on Earth, based on a John Lennon quote from a Rolling Stone interview he'd done. After the album was finished - but not yet released - I had the idea of listing all the crazy things love works better than, called it ''Nothing Works Better #2' and stuck it on as a hidden cut. My friend Biff Kennedy liked the verses of #2 with the chorus of #1, and I've been performing it that way ever since."
4. Over the Christmas Moon "Originally recorded for a holiday sampler, it's so dark they made it the last track in hopes no one would listen that far." With Jackie Damsky on violin.
5. The Quiet Places (LIVE) The title song of Terry's 2017 album of the same name, recorded live at ROM in Boston. With Amy Malkoff on harmony.
6. Life Is Hard Enough (LIVE) "The studio sessions for 'Life Is Hard Enough' were produced by a very talented drummer who wouldn't let me speed up or slow down, since we were adding other instruments and voices. Live I can do what I want."
7. Heaven Here on Earth (LIVE) "Every summer for the past twenty-five years I've performed at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York. On the Sunday morning of the festival there's a gospel song swap and it occurred to me that not everyone has the same ideas about God and religion, so what we needed was a good sing-along hymn for atheists and agnostics. Here you go."
8. Take Me Blues (LIVE) "Originally the closing track of my very first album, this version was recorded live at ROM with Annie Raines on harmonica and Ken Porter on percussion."
9. Snowflakes featuring Barbara Kessler Originally recorded for the Our Finest Gifts charity CD. Unfortunately the issues of self-esteem, depression and drug abuse never go away, and Barbara does a beautiful job of creating empathy with the character.
10. Rain on the Roof featuring Rebecca Lynch "Becky and I sang together back at Occidental College in Los Angeles, and it was great to cross paths with her again in Boston. I've been pitching her songs ever since - she also sings "Same Heart Twice" on the Next Big Thing songtrack album."
11. 20th Century Zoo "An outtake from my very first album, circa 1990, written by my friend George Tocci. Unfortunately time hasn't been kind to the master tape, but hopefully you can hear what a brilliant song it is through the wow and flutter. With Brice Buchanan and Barry Singer on harmony and Matt Darriau on clarinet.
