High Flier (2020 Remix)

from Nine Rays Of Moonshine by Tadpoles



One of the first tracks that Mike and I recorded in a "professional studio" in NYC in 1991 as we were preparing a new album and set out to work on 2-inch 24 track tape rather than our trusty 4-track cassette recording system. But, we didn't have much money to spend the time needed to get all the details right, and the original vocals were not to my liking, so the song ended up getting scrapped. Always liked the song and never felt we did it justice, so Mike and I reconvened briefly as "the Tadpoles" once again in Spring of 2020 to set things right with the song...I recorded vocals in the way I envisioned it originally and Mike provided percussion enhancements on his original drum track. Very happy with how it turned out...It only took 29 years to get right! ~ TP, June 2020.


Once I saw a cat fall down
All the way down to the ground
It rose to climb the building side
The boat pulled out
An old man cried

Full moon sound will fill your ears
The boat sails on
And disappears
