URBAN ROCK MOSAIC 7m19s Debuted in May 2003, Urban Rock Mosaic is Sausalito's most artistic rock n' roll song to date. Influenced primarily by the Velvet Underground and by the protest music of the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and others, the song is based on the bass lines written by Jay Trayne and two poems written by Mike Bellefeuille. Beware the wah pedal. Not a bad take, but certainly not the best.
GREEN MEADOW WOMAN 7m19s Although the recording quality is less than ideal on this track, the true quality of the song is evident. The guitar, bass and vocal parts are all excellently performed in this May recording done the same day the song was written. Unfortunately, drummer Eric Carvill is not present on the track. A great new folk tune.
STONE FACE EULOGY 8m08s On the morning of May 3, 2003, the state of New Hampshire awoke to news that its beloved and revered icon, the symbol that embodied its rugged independence and Yankee spirit, the Old Man of the Mountain, had fallen. The millenia-old natural rock formation, also known as the Great Stone Face, is memorialized in the band's first blues song. This is the first take and uses an out-of-key harmonica.

FLOATING FREE 1m17s Recorded by Neal Munn on electric guitar in 2002, this version is a short interlude version and is not the final take of the song. In the final version, which has yet to be recorded, additional instrumentation, and more lyrics are available. Still, this is a great listen; a totally chilled-out mellow song. Don't be fooled by the electric guitar.

URBAN ROCK MOSAIC (Bellefeuille/Carvill/Munn/Trayne)

A tale of the urban jungles of America, complete with businessmen, cab drivers, homeless folks and "pretty women with deep blue eyes."

GREEN MEADOW WOMAN (Bellefeuille/Munn/Trayne)

An earthy song about an earthy woman. She may never feel the same, but as long as she loves to sing, she's a green meadow woman. After all, "She rises with the flowers and she falls with the rain."

STONE FACE EULOGY (Bellefeuille/Carvill/Munn/Trayne)

Nostalgic, sad and reverent, "Stone Face Eulogy" has all the necessary requirements of a classic blues tune and the Old Man deserves nothing less.

THE BALLAD OF JOE ENGLISH HILL (Bellefeuille/Carvill/Munn/Trayne)

Whatever your thoughts on the definition of a ballad are, this song will meet them. It's the story of Joe English, "a great Ind'gian legend."

LYDIA (Bellefeuille/Carvill/Munn/Trayne)

She's got brown eyes, long black hair, even a European sense of sophistication, but she's an all-American girl. And even though she doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve, here's something even she'll believe...

MIDNIGHT ORCHESTRA (Bellefeuille/Munn)

The haunting song about the serenty and simplicty of a night drive, this early Sausalito song is the first of at least three thus far to contemplate Mike's desire to leave the city for the restful countryside.

WITHOUT A WORD, THE ORANGE SKY (Bellefeuille/Munn)

Originally two seperate songs, "Without a Word" and "The Orange Sky" were combined just before Neal put music to Mike's lyrics about divorce and reconciliation.

COMING HOME (Bellefeuille/Munn)

The band's traditional show-closer, "Coming Home" has not been performed since March 8, 2003, but with some musical revision, the band's first completed song should make a return soon.
