Bone Poets / Gaia Consort
Vitus Dance - 2007 / 2011

Bone Poets Orchestra Vitus Dance cd cover Gaia Conosort Vitus Dance cd cover

In 2011, we re-releasd Vitus Dance as the first Bone Poets Record. It's psychedelic focus is much more evident than Gaia Consort records and many of the songs are in the permanent live playlist - ones we almost always perform. In my thinking, it was the first Bone Poets record. I also made the decision to make "Turtles All the Way Down" and "Vitus Dance" one track, since Turtles was always meant as the intro.

A Warm Night's Song 1980

Abandon ye hope!

NEVER BEEN PRINTED (Probably never will be) - a small selection from my first set of recordings. I wrote and recorded this during the spring and sunmmer of 1980 at The Evergreen State College as part of an independent project. I wouldn't try to sell this today, but if you can get past the sound quality and hear the composition underneath the instruments, some of it could be useful.

2) Penny for the Sweeper LYRICS MP3
3) Love Potion Intstrumental MP3
5) Willowinds LYRICS MP3
