Background of the Song

It usually takes me just 2 days to write a song.   Take Me To Your Spirit  took 10 years.   I'd start it,  ruminate over it,  get disgusted with it and toss it into the "someday" bin.

One day,  however,  I got sick of moving it from bin to piano,  piano to bin.   I plucked it out,  worked all day on it and finished it that night.   I personally think it was worth the wait.

The Gory Details:

I was aiming for a big choir sound so I used 12 "Gailettes" - 4-part harmony with 3 voices to each part.  

David Kalmusky played the beautiful guitar tracks and Jimmy Boudreau played the fabulous drums.
