about

Originally released as a 12" vinyl-only hand-screened limited edition. This recording is a testament to the the beauty and magic of transitional metamorphosis. Recorded live for broadcast by Jon Solomon on Princeton Radio in February 2006, this offering bridges the gap between 2005's Bare Bones and Branches and the 2007 release of Blasts of Holy Birth. The loose, fresh versions of past favourites blend with workings of new material, setting a striking ambience including various chimes, vocals, eastern drones, harp, guitar, banjo, piano, percussion, and other whims. Thirty minutes of pure magic.


"Live on WPRB" is impressive in it's ability to capture many of the wonderful things about live performance... It's recorded excellently, mastered beautifully....It feels like the calm after a great storm that has torn down everyone's walls and united everybody in their loss."
- Sound Waves Magazine

There's something oceanic and spiritual about Lewis & Clarke. Perhaps the feeling's summoned at the start of this 12" when you hear babies murmuring before the first notes begin, and then you notice the title of the last song, "Blasts Of Holy Birth". The fact that the four songs here were recorded live brings yet another dimension to the gentle clarity and potent emotion intrinsic to their kind of folk music. Open, compelling and pure.
- Sentimentalist

"This live set of expansive, intricate folk is fleshed out by a variety of textures...every note is wound up with import, like the quiet minutes of the day when your mind has the chance to cut through the mundane and focus on sometimes difficult realities."
-Pop Matters
