paul durham
ten million years:
songs from the nineteen nineties


four tracks of acoustic black lab, plus eleven tracks of folk-rock ambition -- trying to put everything down at once, bare bones, with nothing to hide behind.

with paul baker on bass, hershel yatovitz on guitar, and jim kassis on drums, paul durham tried to break new ground. in the end, he left in search of a big wall of guitar.

this CD collects the mid-nineties recordings produced by acclaimed jazz producer lee townsend. it's a riveting mix of folk and rock, cut through with with shards of country and jazz, and reveals the early impulses that led to black lab.

includes the original versions of "time ago," "dream in color" and "walk slow" (from the director's cut of your body above me).
the cd also includes the acoustic black lab version of "wash it away," late-night recordings of an acoustic-duo performance of "can't keep the rain" and "sleeps with angels" by paul and his friend d.joseph; and the beautiful solo demo of "ten million years" that got paul his first deal with geffen. download "postcards" or "sleeps with angels (live)" for a taste.
