BACK IN TIME consists of fourteen previously unreleased studio tracks that were recorded from 1979-1988.
Trying To Hold On is an alternate mix of a song from Carla's recorded-In-Sweden solo album. This version features saxophone where the original featured harmonica.
Clarence Carter's Slip Away and Bob Marley's Redemption Song were cut as part of a " lay down all the tunes you know session". These are two of my personal favorites from that day.
Smokey Robinson once sang his classic I Second That Emotion with The Textones, unfortunately the tape recorder was not on. But this live-in-the-studio bluesy take is quite special nonetheless.
Through The Canyon lent it's name to the most recent American Textones LP. This is from a different session than the verion that appeared on that album.
In 1985 the band cut six songs with drummer Phil Seymour on lead vocals. Two showed up on the THROUGH THE CANYON album and here's three more, including this collection's title cut.
Gene Clark also recorded with the group that year . One cut, Lover's Turnaround, was the bonus track on the Gene Clark/Carla Olson CD SO REBELLIOUS A LOVER (Demon Records, 1987). Another tune turned up as a Bucketful Of Brains flexl-disc. And here's Jokers Are Wild,
In 1980 The Textones released a 45 on IRS Records' subsidiary Faulty Products. An outtake from the sessions that produced the single is heard here for the first time, If I Could Be.
We Don't Get Along is the earliest recording herein. It was wlltten by Kathy Valenllne who later re-recorded the song with her next band, The GO-GO's. It also appeared on Phil Seymour's album debut in 1981.
Lastly we have Standing In The line, a song whose social and ecological message still warrants a listen. This is an earlier version of what would be the lead track on The Textones' A&M album MIDNIGHT MISSION, which was released In 1984. happy listening. Saul Davis, December, 1989
