Album Notes
This CD was recorded by the now famous Tucker Martine in his basement in Georgetown. The band still owes Tucker a world of thanks. This incarnation of ThorNton Creek included Don Miller on Chapman Stick and electric guitar, Duane Tayloron acoustic guitar, Virginia Warner doing backup vocals, Thornton Bowman on lead vocals and acoustic guitar. Tucker Martine also played drums for this work.

"...the band plays Neil Youngish music that is refreshing to hear...easy to listen to..."
Jason Trachtenburg, Jet City Maven, July 1999

"Well, if you like Neil Young, Bowman will have you beaming. The man isn't a clone by any means, but there's enough in his voice to get you harking back to old Neil's acoustic work. As far as his writing goes, the songs are a much more slippery beast, lyrically dense, sometimes even serpentine, uncoiling the soul and that little kernel of truth, the way the best songwriters should."
Chris Nickson, The Rocket, August, 1998

Thornton Bowman moved from Virginia to Washington and, conveniently enough, found a home and a job in Seattle's Thornton Creek Watershed. The rest is history. In fact, it's all history; some of it just hasn't happened yet.

Anyway, that's where he met the other band members and wrote most of the songs. It got a bit wet though and the lyrics were hard to read. Eventually they moved inside where it was easier to record stuff. And that's just what they did. That too was a bit of history, or so they were told.
