Strictly Commercial --- Really, TV has had absolutely no effect on me!!! A little mix of things that have gotten stuck within marks head over the years! If y’all remember most of these, you have effectively Dated yourself. (Fago/Country Sunshine (Coke)/I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing (Coke)/Stroh’s). If memory serves it was arranged throughout the 90’s, by Mark.

Recorded by Mark & KORG Pa4X.

DreamPondTX-D: The D signifies being about as disconnected from the computer assistance as an electronic keyboard player can get.

The computer is providing the patch that is being played and the single pass, stereo, digital recorder.

It’s just two hands, eight fingers and two thumbs. No “Sound on Sound”, overdubbing or anything one might call adding or removing notes after the single pass recording.

Left hand is generally functioning as “Pedal Chord, Pedal Chord”. Although Mark learned using bass pedals (back in the 60’s), no bass pedals are being used here.

There are two stomp boxes down there to keep his feet occupied. Thankfully, Mark was kind to us in his recording wiring concerning this matter. The stomp boxes are not in the recording, only heard by Mark. And still he tends to speed up like a runaway train! (Good drummer, Priceless!).

Keep in mind: A mistake only has power if the musician stops, and brings it out into the light. If the show maintains to go on, there will be only a few that ponder, “Did he mean to do that?”

Listening closely here is not required to hear many examples of the, Keep On Going thang!

On the off chance that you were paying close enough attention when the goof was made, make it again instantly. Once you get good at it, the goof often self corrects, somewhat! At the very least, the folks that pondered “Did he mean to do that?” are really confused, Now!!!

I Sang Dixie --- An arrangement of I Sang Dixie.

Pond (V) --- Many moons ago, on another timeline. I blew horn. Alto, Tenor & Beri Sax. All together, there was a gathering of extremely gifted young musicians. Talented guides and instructors were also along and teaching. Being so very fortunate to experience music amongst them, I was!

Recorded by Mark & KORG Pa4X.

Chim Chim Cher-ee --- An arrangement of Chim Chim Cher-ee.

DreamPondTX-W: The W signifies dipping into the proverbial “Way-Back Machine”. A long time ago, . . . further, . . . further, . . . there ya go! This one goes back to the late 80's. The Korg M1 and its onboard sequencer. All tracks were recorded live into the sequencer. No step recording, that's just mind numbing!

Recorded by Mark & Korg M1.

Jeepney Driver – Mark was in the midst of Adventures in the Philippines when he came across a band in The Old West II bar with a Japanese singer. He sang a song called Jeepney Driver (sung to Country Roads) to the sailors who were in port. Scott will be singing this for you at a later date.

Haze Grey And UnderWay --- Written by Mark in the early 80's, out to and over seas. He was young, ten feet tall and bullet proof. That's no longer an issue.

Recorded by Mark & Korg Oasys, fiction.

DreamPondTX-W: The W signifies dipping into the proverbial “Way-Back Machine”. A long time ago, . . . further, . . . further, . . . there ya go!

Once listened to, it should be “Obvious to the Most Casual Observer”, Mark is not, has never been, and most likely, will never be, a vocalist!

However, over the years, there were occasions where vocals were necessary in the project for one reason or another. When no vocal-pro was available, . . . well, . . .you hear what happened!

Unnatural Invasion --- Written by Mark in the 80’s during, but not part of, The Dragon Project. From the point of view of an under water civilization, witnessing sinking sailing ships from a battle above. The bodies of sailors, tangled in the mangled rigging, has them questioning the motives of the strange people on the waters. Scott will introduce us all to the lyrics in a later post.

Billy Who? --- The World May Never Know! It is, what it was. And we still don't like square, sharp edged, weighted, keys! It's perfectly fine if you do.
